“Wonderful boutique hotel in a perfect in a perfect location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

We decided on a whim to use our points to visit Sarasota, FL. and stay at the swank Hotel Indigo. For being Mother's Day weekend, I thought everything would be chaotic but in fact it was peaceful and serene. The staff at the check-in counter were extremely friendly and accommodating. Mary was so charming and so was Nunia (I believe that was her name but I know she was from Palm Beach). I love the trickling water wall and the Brita water dispenser smack in the middle where you can bring the carafe from your room to get fresh water! Amazing touch!!! The two wading pools are quaint for a quick refreshing dip, the ocean is a step away so a huge pool is not required. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be treated as a valued guest. The king size bed was more than comfortable and the spa shower was soothing after a long day driving and sightseeing!!!! I am so thrilled we stayed at this gem of a hotel. The coastal theme and soothing water makes the Hotel Indigo in Sarasota a Mecca of sheer relaxation!

Dear Venrod1,
Phrases like “Mecca of sheer relaxation” and “gem of a hotel” are definitely the way to our heart! We love that you were so happy with your stay and that your experience far exceeded your expectations, especially considering that you made your booking on a whim. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your interactions with Mary and Dunia who are valuable and valued assets to our front desk team. Thank you for appreciating the ‘Hydration Station’ and Spa-Inspired Wading Pools. We can’t wait to have you back again for a more deliberate visit and hopefully you can make it soon – maybe Father’s Day this time?

Thank you to the entire crew and staff at the indigo. Although my conference was at the Hyatt I thoroughly enjoyed my stay every morning and evening at the Indigo. They try to serve me in every way possible sometimes shuttling me to the Hyatt or giving me travel advice in the area. The whole room was clean and well fitted and the color scheme and decorations were very cottagey. The welcoming smile of Julia every morning was a simply a treat. I will not forget my stay in Sarasota at the indigo

I was SO impressed with the staff at the Hotel Indigo in Sarasota FL from start to finish! From the front desk to the restaurant/bar to the housekeepers/maintenance, everyone consistently greeted us with a smile and a kind word. We didn't want to leave! We were especially impressed with Mary at the front desk who is a true hospitality professional. Andrew at the restaurant/bar was super friendly and shared some great information. The decor in the lobby and the rooms is awesome, but it is the staff that makes the Hotel Indigo Sarasota truly amazing.

The staff were all delightful, friendly and helpful. Our room wasn't ready right at 3PM so they were sure to give us a late check out through 2pm the next day which worked perfectly with our plans. The rooms are clean and nicely furnished. No view to speak of and I was unfortunate enough to be in a room right by the elevator so was woken throughout the night and morning with a whirring and buzzing from the elevator, but that is an easy fix, next time I stay I will ask to be put in a room on the other side of the hotel (Note: I am a very light sleeper, it did not bother my boyfriend one bit). The hotel has filtered water in the lobby which was great and you can rent bikes for 4 hours for a half day rate of $5 on your bill. We rode the bikes throughout Sarasota and really enjoyed it.
All in all it is a great place to stay if you plan to head to downtown Sarasota.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper I would recommend asking for a room far away from the elevators.

We stayed at the Indigo Hotel in Sarasota while on a business training trip. We found the staff to be extremely friendly and welcoming.

The rooms were very clean, orderly and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was well-organized and the food was great quality and very fresh. The servers were polite, quick, and efficient.

Loved the coffee!

Our family of 5 had 2 rooms over Easter weekend at this property. The hotel looks and feels fairly new. It was clean and smelled fresh always. The rooms are pretty much like the pictures you see on the website, very bright murals on the walls and "south Florida" furnishings. I am pretty picky about beds and found this one to be comfortable. My only complaint is, sadly, something they can't change, A/C. The air conditioning is the old fashioned unit under the window which blasts cool air on one side of the bed but the other side of the room and bathroom are hot. The bathroom had very low ceilings and no ventalation, so it got quite warm. Also, there were no tubs in our rooms, only very large walk in showers. This would have been fine if there were hand held shower heads, but as it is you will have wet hair when you shower. I know this is only something women will care about, but still.

Probably the best part of this hotel is the exceptional staff. Everyone, from the restaurant staff to housekeeping made you feel welcome and was eager to help. We often stay at 5 star properties and I was so pleasantly surprised that the staff here was every bit as good as the Ritz. I have never stayed at an Indigo property, but would do so based on the service here.

the location is hard to beat. You can walk to many downtown destinations, which is a huge bonus as parking there is a challenge. The hotel offers free parking in the underground garage and free Wi-Fi.

Room Tip: I always go for a high floor away from the elevator.

Excellent hotel that feels a little European. Service is awesome. Everyone there wants to make your stay one to remember. Excellent restaurant also. Chef Sal is the best! Everything cooked is fresh. Great pasta dishes and home made New York cheesecake.
