“Exceeded expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Lovely new, fresh, clean hotel. Our room is quite large with an extra sofa area, nice coffee /tea making area, desk. Comfy beds, fridge in room. The breakfast was nice, better than, say, a Holiday Inn Express, for what that's worth. The best thing for me is the free shuttle service. We go downtown at night via shuttle, they pick us up later after dinner--so easy. The pool looks nice, tho i didnt use it. I will stay here again the next time I am in Sarasota.

The hotel does not respect your reservation. We reserved two beds rooms, an we had printed they answer was our policy does not warranty what room can we give you.
The room for 200 us was to expensive was not very clean, the carpet was dirt.
That is not acceptable!

Room Tip: Be sure to have printed everything

Next to the airport, yet quiet. A good price, for a nice roomy hotel room, plus a nice breakfast with my favorites - fruit and oatmeal. The pool stocked with towels, is refreshing since it is heated in the winter. Very friendly helpful staff. I will stay again for sure!

Room Tip: A room on the opposite side of the main road is quieter.

From the drive up to the beautiful, clean property, to the modern immaculate lobby, to the warm and courteous greeting from JT at reception, we knew this hotel was a real winner. The rooms are modern, spacious, relaxing and very well appointed. We got the suite with two queen beds plus a pull-out sofa. Great linens, nice mattress. Wet bar, tv, separate vanity from bath area. The complimentary breakfast was top-notch from the Starbucks brewed coffee to the fresh fruit and gourmet breakfast sandwiches. Free wi-fi and parking. We only wish all the hotels we stay at were like this one! Well done management and staff, this is a great property in the Hyatt chain!

My dad and I took a quick golf getaway to Sarasota in early January. Complimentary airport pickup and two golf courses in the 3 mile radius was perfect for us. Betsy, Milos,J.T.,Greg all went out of there way to make sure our stay was perfect. Great breakfast was an added bonus. Thank you guys!!

I've now stayed at 4 Hyatt Places. More than any other chain (Marriott, Hilton, Radisson) - these have a consistency of design - artwork, rooms design, etc.

This hotel is right across the street from the airport - about 15 mins to the #1 beach in America (Siesta Key). The gym is ok - the pool is nice, and the breakfast very good with food that was better than other Hyatt Places and a staff working hard.

One room flaw - the bathroom sink area is not enclosed - so - you can't have privacy - or brush your teeth in quietness - like as your family is sleeping, etc.

One issue Hyatt place has is - when you need a front desk person, they aren't there. In this case, they were doing breakfast. The walls were thin and two people were arguing about their New Years plans that had gone awry - and using bad language that my kids didn't need to hear.

The other thing - I'm an elite member - and they ran out of newspapers. Hotels are stocking less and less. The elite members should at least get one.

All in all - very nice, well priced, and a good value.

We stayed here recently as we had some free nights to cash in. The hotel is new, clean and close to everything. The staff is very nice and the complimentary breakfasts are actually nicer than at some of the other comparable hotels. The pool was also really nice and well kept. We enjoyed it quite a bit when it was too chilly to go to Siesta Key Beach. You do need a car though, if you are in town to hit the beach.
Its across the street from the airport, 5 minutes from Jungle Gardens (a nice place for the kids) and 10 minutes from downtown Sarasota and the Key Beaches.
We would stay there again.
