“attractive room rates & friendly service”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Located on a main north - south highway, this hotel provides convenient access to the Sarasota airport as well as downtown Sarasota [about a 10-15 minute drive].

The lobby area is light and airy for this class of hotel, and the room was also spacious. Bathroom was a standard size and design, and room amenities included a coffee/tea maker, microwave and mini-fridge. Unlimited free WiFi was included with the room rate. I found the front desk folks extremely friendly and helpful - they were always ready with a smile and help with a request. Breakfast including made to order eggs and pancakes plus a buffet was very reasonable at ~$12. There's also a Mickey D a short, 5 minute walk to the north. You can walk/run around the USF campus next door to the south and stay away from the traffic and noise of the main highway [Tamiami Trail].

This is an excellent location if your using the airport, and although the swimming pool is located at the front of the building - it was well maintained and a good place to sit and relax.

Clientele ranged from business travelers to families on vacation - all mixing comfortably.

I work for a city that's about an hour's drive away from the Hilton Garden Inn, Sarasota. A conference was being held there, and all five of the members in our department attended. So that I could sleep in a bit and avoid the buy morning commute, I decided to travel over the night before and stay. The room was well appointed, with a comfortable chair and ottoman, a writing table, large screen TV, internet, a king-sized bed and spotless bathroom. The only negative was this was a room with a connecting door to the adjacent room and the TV, though not loud, could still be heard. The positives were the fast, clear check-in, the welcoming, friendly staff, the continuous available coffee in the lobby, and speed checkout. Speed checkout consisted of a note slipped under the door and waiting for me when I awoke, which indicated, I'd been checked out and that I wouldn't have to go the front desk! As long as I was out by the 11am check-out time, I was all set to go. Very nice! It was a great stay!

This Hilton Garden Inn was a great place for our family! We stayed here and daily visited area beaches like Siesta Key, Lido , and Anna Maria Island. The location is ideal for a short drive to the Rosemary, downtown, and arts districts , as well as the marina. Our rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly. Highly recommended! The housekeeper even arranged our kids stuffed animals in a cute little group for them on the bed...

This hotel was nice but it is very humid and sticky in the rooms. The staff is very friendly but Hilton really needs to take a look at the overall ventilation in the entire hotel. There were several of us there in different rooms and everybody mentioned the same thing the next morning at breakfast.

HGISarasota, Manager at Hilton Garden Inn Sarasota - Bradenton Airport, responded to this review, June 2, 2013
Thank you for your feedback about your recent stay. I sincerely apologize about the feeling of dampness in the lobby the other day. The problem stemmed from keeping doors open in public areas (like the entrance/exit between the outdoor patio and the restaurant) and some of the AC settings, not a problem with the overall ventilation of the building. We are now approaching the rainiest, most humid, and warmest time of the year in Sarasota; and moving forward we will better train our staff to control the environment in the building as summer approaches. If you have any further feedback or concerns, please feel free to contact our management team directly any time.

They earned a rating of poor for their attitude and other issues, such as the water being cut off for maintenance issues without any notice whatsoever at check-in. The poor attitude of the staff was just a bonus, which they didn't charge any additional fees for that service. Skip this HGI location.

I am sincerely sorry about the inconvenience the other day. We choose that particular time for the routine maintenance as it was in between our daily arrival and departure times, while few guests were physically in the hotel. You concerns, though, are duly noted; and we do apologize. Although signs were posted in the hotel the day prior to, and day of the repair, we should have given you further advanced notice. Please feel free to contact our management team any time; we would be happy to speak with you directly and make things right. We do hope to see in the future the next time you are in Sarasota.

We chose this location for its proximity to New College of Florida. We had traveled here to attend my sons graduation. We arrived tired and after 9 pm and I felt a bit rushed by the check in. We were acknowledged as a Rewards Member upon arrival, which was nice. The function of the adjustable bed knob was explained quickly and briefly. The lobby and elevator intermittently smelled of mold. I wondered if it was from the plants in the lobby or the building itself. The nonsmoking room smelled of smoke, but the room and bathroom appeared clean. We slept well in the bed, but could not find the adjustment knob to change the firmness of the bed and once we did it did not appear to be functional. The breakfast was good and worth the added expense. The lobby was bright and sunny and the internet work well in the lobby. The internet was free in the room, but a bit spotty. The room was a good value, but I would not return to this location for my next stay in Sarasota. I would consider the Hilton Garden elsewhere, though I am partial to one hundred percent non smoking hotels.

Thank you for taking the time share your feedback about your recent stay with us. I apologize about the lobby and elevator, which you say did not smell fresh intermittently during your stay. This month has been very rainy and humid; and we have just finished addressing that issue, deep cleaning the lobby and public areas.

We do hope you reconsider staying with us in the future. While, as you mention, you are partial to 100% non-smoking hotels, we have three 100% non-smoking floors. For a future reservation, please feel free to contact me directly. I will be happy to ensure you are assigned a room on a 100% non-smoking floor, and personally inspect your room. Thanks again.

My wife and I stayed there for a job interview and touring the area. Location is good, although it can be difficult to get out the front entry and turn left. Near the Sarasota airport but not much noise. Nicely updated. Nice people. Would stay again.
