Was hesitant when our usual Marriott brand hotels were all full in the area. Thankfully Fairfield Inn and Suites Sarasota-Lakewood Ranch kindly referred us to this hotel which was nearby and close to I-75. The stunningly beautiful lobby with fountain was a complete surprise. We did not realize that not only are the Holiday Inn Expresses updated and well done, but this "standard" Holiday Inn was equal too or better than the Fairfield Inn and Suites and other Marriott brands we have enjoyed on our travels.It had a very competitive Sr. Rate, and was less expensive than those closer to downtown Sarasota. The room was beautiful, spotless, and the free breakfast was yummy. I have now signed up for the Holiday Inn rewards program, and will be watching for more of these beautifully updated Holiday Inns. The 800-Hol-iday phone assistance was so helpful in making the last minute reservation--I couldn't have been more pleased with this choice to stay at Holiday Inn.
