What more is there to say? Our room was immaculate as was the bathroom. The desk staff is very knowledgeable about the area and made some excellent recommendations. With so many great restaurants in Sarasota, we did not try the restaurant. The bar is located awkwardly to the left of the front door making it somewhat noisy and lacking charm.... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of January and this is a brilliant hotel. We loved the decor - it makes a pleasant change from the norm. Without exception all of the staff were very friendly, helpful, and genuinely seemed to enjoy looking after their guests. This is probably one of the freindliest hotels we have stayed... More

This is a distinctive property with unique décor. It was odd that there were no drawers in the room, making it awkward to store underthings. The hotel staff was pleasant and accommodating and didn't seem to mind at all working on Christmas Eve and Day. The location is great if you're a good walker - a tad too far out... More

I was amazed at how Chef Solomon Shenker could provide great food for so many people, plus his cheese cake should win some awards. This was an unexpected bonus on our visit. Great staff and spot all around. I would highly recommend.

The Hotel Indigo is nice enough overall but overrated in my opinion. The fitness center is inadequate. The hot and cold tubs in the outdoor area are good but the lack of a real resort style pool was disappointing. The rooms are nice but noisy. Pretty good bar area with small restaurant that stays open late. Easy walk into town... More

For a colorful boutique hotel that is reasonably priced ... this is not to be missed. Spacious pastel rooms, large walk-in showers and a very hospitable staff. H2O restaurant is a nice addition to the lobby area. The property is located right off Sarasota Bay and a convenient stroll from downtown Main St.

My mother & I stayed at Indigo for two nights while the Ritz Carlton was fully booked before moving over across the street.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is definitely handy to have sat-nav in order to find it easily. All the staff, but particularly the staff on the reception desk, were very friendly and helpful.We walked to downtown Sarasota for dinner in the evening and although the streets were very quiet we did not feel unsafe in any way....
