My husband was celebrating his 65TH birthday on September 28TH and we wanted to go to Siesta Key Beach to celebrate. We had not been to the Sarasota area for 12 years and the last time we visited, we stayed on Siesta Key. However, once I read the reviews of Hotel Indigo Sarasota and looked at the online pictures, my mind was made up. We were not disappointed. The Hotel is beautiful and clean. Everyone was friendly and the atmosphere was upbeat. The drive to the beach was not bad at all. Actually, we liked not being right on the beach so we could relax. Our only complaint was the bed pillows were way too soft. We should have asked for firmer pillows and next time we will request them. We plan to stay at Hotal Indigo Sarasota again and do more exploring in the area. The day were were leaving, the desk clerk recommended a great seafood restaurant not far from the Hotel. We went there for lunch on our way to the airport and it was really good. My husband had a good birthday and we can't wait to visit again!!!
