This is the first Hotel Indigo I have ever stayed in, and I have to say I was very impressed. Everything from the open air lounge in the lobby to the wall murals in the room and even the soft music playing in the hallways, this hotel makes you feel like you're having an experience, not just a hotel stay. Christian at the front desk was especially kind and helpful. He checked me in very efficiently, and gave me a map showing me the downtown Sarasota area and where I would find some local restaurants. In the morning, I stopped at the H20 lounge for breakfast, and had a delicious egg ham and cheese bagel sandwich, which came with a large bowl of fresh sliced fruit. I will definitely recommend the Hotel Indigo Sarasota to family and friends if they are traveling to the area.
