Very nice hotel, with spacious rooms, bed area and comfortable lounge area (which can be made into a bed), desk area,refrigerators,coffee makers, free wifi. A microwave is available in the common area but not in the rooms. The beds and linens were very good and comfortable. Nice common area with computers for guests, breakfast room, bar (small but adequate) with food available. The pool was especially nice, and reasonably large- enough to swim laps.. All common areas are fresh , modern and well kept.Free breakfast was pretty typical, but we had no complaints. The specially ordered food however left something to be desired, so I would skip that unless you have a serious case of the midnight munchies. Snacks however, were fine- cookies etc.
The hotel is close to downtown Sarasota (10 minutes perhaps) and close to St Armands Circle and the beach- perhaps 15 mnutes.
The hotel is convenient and being across from the airport very quiet. There are numerous restaurants located just minutes away.The staff is very helpful and pleasant.
All in all an excellent place to stay at a very good price..
