“Unbeatable Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

This is my first experience with any Hotel Indigo properties, I was very impressed from the minute of walking into the hotel. The front desk agent was very receptive and this hospitality continued from all the staff that I came across throughout the stay. The property is very clean and plenty of parking with their underground parking garage as well. Just a short drive to all the restaurants in Sarasota.

Hotel shuttle was right on time at the airport. Our room was ready hours before check in. Hotel breakfast is actually better than most restaurants. Most of the staff is extremely knowledgeable of the area and if not, they will print you off directions. Our bartender Adam made the night. Chef Solomon has five star chefs beat hands down. Just not your normal hotel experience...in a good way.

I planned a trip to Sarasota in June for both my girlfriend and my own birthdays. As a surprise, I was also proposing to my girlfriend on this trip. I called and asked if there were any special arrangements that could be made at the hotel. Christian took my information and followed up with a very informative email, and then proceeded to be extremely helpful in arrangements. When I arrived, Christian was scheduled off, but detailed notes were left, and Sandra (manager) was able to pick right up. Sandra was eager to help, and her role in this arrangement well exceeded my expectations. The entire staff was very friendly and attentive, and made my experience amazing. I am now engaged, and this hotel will always be a beautiful part of our memories. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am soo great full for all your generosity.

Sincerely,
Robert J. Kane

Wonderful boutique hotel located in downtown Sarasota. Our room was large and very clean. The staff was pleasant and professional. On site free parking. I would definitely recommend this location. The only thing missing was a washer / dryer.

Dear Mark G,
Thank you for your feedback! We are pleased with your love for our boutique hotel. We have immense love for our guests and do our best to show you; from the moment you walk in to the moment you depart. We don’t believe in charging for the essentials (such as, wifi and parking) which is why we stand out from neighboring hotels. We do offer a dry cleaning and laundry service that is available throughout the week. Also, we are conveniently located downtown with several dry cleaning facilities, as well. We hope to see you again in the future!

Varied menu including pasta, fish, vegetarian. I had sea bass with crab and assorted squash. My wife had pasta with chicken. The service was attentive, but not too close. The first course and desserts were original and delicious.

Room Tip: we live in town and went there for the food.

Of all our hotel stays we enjoyed this one the most thanks in large part to the hospitality of the staff. We were alway greeted in a friendly, cheerful manner by all the staff regardless where we met them in the hotel. We especially enjoyed the wonderful snacks and meals in the hotel restaurant. Loved that cheesecake! The chef, Solomon, even came to our table one eve to see if we were happy with our choices… Yes we were!!! And of course our server, Adam on a few occasions, livened up our time spent eating and just hanging out. He was a delight, always attentive and keeping us laughing and enjoying ourselves. I wish I could remember the names of all who served us as they all helped make our stay THE BEST!!!

My husband and I recently stayed here for a week. The hotel lived up to all of our expectations....and then some. We were not disappointed with anything....the room itself, clean & tasteful, the facilities---the restaurant, the business center, the small pool and fitness center, the location--perfect to walk into town or drive to nearby beaches. The people who work at this hotel were probably what I liked the most about the hotel. These people are friendly, knowledgable about the area and willing to help you with anything! I want to give a shout out of Adam...what an adorable young man, who worked in the restaurant....always a pleasure to be waited on by him and to talk to him. Genn...she was a lovely, hard working person too, who worked in the restaurant and Sol, the head chef....a friendly, easy to talk to person who "knows" good food. I will be staying here in the future when I return to Sarasota as I plan to make it my home someday soon! Kudos to management here....someone is "doing" something really right!
