“Nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

This hotel looks pretty new, even though it is not. It is a close walk to Downtown and that is about it. Would have gotten a 5 for value, but it is not the best location and right next to condos and a residential area that is a little rundown. I would stay again for a short stay. Needed to go out for dinner as the little restaurant was not too appetizing. The staff was nice and rooms were clean. The bathroom was nicer than most hotels. We stayed 1 night and had a great view of the parking lot of a large condo right next door.

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel in downtown Sarasota. Everyone was very nice, the hotel and room were clean and bright. Relaxing CD was playing as we entered our room. Good wine list too! The location was also good, easy walk to restaurants, bars, and waterfront. I'd stay again!

My two friends and I checked into the Hotel Indigo in Sarasota last week. We were impressed by the clean, bright, and colorful atmosphere. It had a real beachy theme even though it was not located on the beach. The office staff was so friendly and accommodating and bent over backwards to please us. The room was large and bright with a lovely view of palm trees. There was plenty of parking not only in front of the hotel, but under it as well to keep the heat off of the cars. There was no charge for parking which was an added bonus. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that wants to experience the theater district as well as the beach.

From start to finish our stay here was fantastic. The room was lovely and just how the photos showed. It was beautifully cleaned and the bed was comfy. The bathroom had a walk in shower/wetroom which was great feature.

All the staff members that we encountered were very welcoming and chatty, even paying us a compliment as we went out to dinner. What a lovely personalised service.

The parking is convenient. Even if you have to park in the garage, as it is underneath the hotel the lift will take you straight up to your room. The only slight downside was the size of the pool, it is nothing you could swim in but as the rest of the hotel and service was faultless, I would have no hesitate in staying here again or recommending to friends. Thank you for such a lovely stay.

Stayed three nights in the Hotel Indigo in Sarasota while dropping my daughter off at Ringling College. Clean, comfortable, and cool. Wood floors in the rooms are a nice touch. Restaurant had excellent food. Still, greatest attraction was the staff. Friendly and accommodating, they gave excellent restaurant and beach recommendations. Easy access to the airport, downtown, Ringling College of Art and Design, and the beaches.

We love this boutique hotel, we stayed at the Indigo twice a year is lovely service is awesome. Beautiful rooms and spacious, chic & different, not like one of those beach hotels crowded and sand in the elevators. This is one if those hotels that you always want to come back. No swimming pools but they have 2 jacuzzis one hot and one cold very nice and relax.

The room at Hotel Indigo are so stylish, and it was a joy to stay there. Erika, at the front desk, was sweet, helpful, smart, and we loved her! The service was impeccable, and what a great location! We will surely stay there again in the future!
