We were so pleased to discover this boutique hotel. The decor is the best I've seen in a hotel. The location is very convenient, near downtown Sarasota, right on the Tamiami Trail (US 41). The hotel restaurant is limited, but we were walking distance from many places to eat. The staff are friendly and the service is excellent. The big drawback is the lack of a full-sized pool, but there is a hot tub and a cold plunge pool.
