“Dubious practices and lack of maintenance”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

When we booked a one-night stay thru Booking.com it was clearly specified that the night will be charged upon reservation. Bad suprise, our Amex card was debited for $ 712,32 by Hyatt Place Sarasota. Second bad surprise, we e-mailed the hotel which failed to answer. Lastly we turned to Booking.com which succeeded in straightening this problem. 19 days after the debit we eventually got the correct credit on our Amex card.

We had chosen this hotel because of its proximity to the Ringling which was the main reason for our stop in Sarasota (the other one being Siesta Key) in our way to St Petersburg.

Our room was spacious, clean, with comfortable bed, XL flat TV, free WiFi, tea/coffee maker, large desk, adequate bathroom though the sink in the room looks a bit awkward. Buffet breakfast was satisfactory. Free parking. Welcoming staff.

However, it is noticeable that proper maintenance left to desire: failed bulb on the bed head lamp, broken shower head, broken lamp cover above the desk, scratches on the door, dirty carpet in the corridor.

Never again. Where are the Hyatt standards gone.

In Sarasota for a friend's daughter wedding which is to start mid-afternoon. Called in advance to see if we could get early check in. When we arrived our room was ready, easy check-in and room was ready! Was able to shower, dress and made the wedding in time! Thanks, Hyatt Place for a perfect experience.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor with pool view.

We have just returned from our annual trip to Florida and this year decided to stay at Hyatt Place for a couple of nights. We had had a huge condo in Orlando prior to arriving and were a little worried we'd feel cramped in one room, family of four, although our boys are only 6 and 4. We needn't have worried, it worked great with the room partition we could put the boys to bed and stay up ourselves without disturbing them too much. The room was decorated really nice and modern and very clean. We found the beds fantastically comfortable and I'd love to know what pillows they use if someone wouldn't mind replying to me, that would be much appreciated? We didn't use the pool although it looked perfectly fine and we all thought the breakfast was great. All in all, we loved it

Staying at Hyatt Place in Sarasota last week was a super experience. It was a great place to come home to everyday after my meetings. Great towels, super bed linens, nice and clean, quiet and good hot breakfasts every day. Comment here: I had the oatmeal every morning... really needs more salt!

Wish we would had selected this hotel for the entire week. Very friendly staff, comfortable, quite and clean. Easily accessible to Sarasota shopping, beaches, local airport and restaurants. Staff was most friendly and concerned that our needs were met.

Room Tip: King room was very comfortable.

The staff was extremely accomodating, room spacious and comfortable. High marks for the breakfast buffet, which is a cut above other chain hotels in the same category. I asked for an eggwhite patty on my biscuit instead of regular eggs, and got it served to me; Seattle's Best Coffee and Tazo Tea available throughout breakfast time. Small but well cared for fitness center.
