“A solid property in a good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

I stayed for 2 nights with my family and overall was pleased. The front desk staff is outstanding. Can't say enough positive about them. The met every expectation with a smile, from making sure the sleeper sofa was turned down before arrival to having cold bottles of water waiting for us at check in.

Our junior suite was very clean and in reasonably good repair for an airport hotel. We had problems with our TV remotes, but they were promptly swapped out. The air conditioning was a bit noisy and the room could use a quick coat of paint, particularly near the air conditioning unit and the bedroom air vent. Everything else was very nice.

We at breakfast both days and it was very good, complete with made to order eggs, waffles, pancakes, etc. Breakfast was an excellent start to the day and very satisfying.

This hotel is directly across from the airport, although I never heard the planes at all. It is less than 1/2 mile from New College, USF, and FSU, so if you're considering staying here while doing college tours, this hotel is an excellent option. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed the night so that we could go to Siesta Keys the next day for the Sand Castle Competition. It is in a great location, near the airport, and right next to the Ringling Museum, which we have been to in the past. The room was very spacious and the beds comfortable, which is very important to my husband with a bad back! The lobby was very inviting and comfortable. The breakfast was not a continental breakfast, but I peaked in to see what they had, which was your usual hotel food. But they did have a chef there if you wanted a special omelete for a price.

This hotel offered anything you could have needed or desired. The shuttle service is terrific and the location is good also. All of the staff knew of the places to go, their locations and especially the restaurants in the area. The shuttle took me anywhere I wanted to go and picked me up promptly. The hotel was beautiful and made the guests feel very much welcomed.

My husband and I got married at the Marie Selby Gardens just down the road and reserved a room block at the Hilton Garden Inn, for a great discounted price. The staff was so welcoming and constantly asked if we needed help with anything! The free shuttle they provided transported our guests to and from the ceremony site. The rooms were all clean and comfortable and everyone loved how beautiful the lobby was. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are in Sarasota and do not want to be downtown. The free shuttle can take you to all the great spots around the area, while still feeling like you are staying in a secluded area.

I like staying here when I travel for business. It's directly across from the Sarasota airport and is on a main street with plenty of restaurants and shopping. It's easy only a few miles from the beach.

See previous comments. Room had smell of fish and the carpet was wet from cleaning with a dehumidifier running to help remove the odor. Management was aware of condition and still assigned the room to me. I would not have assigned this room it was clean, dry and there was no odor. No respect for the traveling public or repeat customers.

Please accept our sincere apology for your experience while staying with us.

From what I understand, our staff was quick to react to the situation; and I am relieved that they found you another room.

I can assure you that what you experienced the other day was not our norm, and completely unacceptable to us. We have already had conversations with our team, reiterating that there is no room for error when it comes to inspecting rooms and releasing them to the traveling public.

Please feel free to contact me or anyone else in our management team directly if there is anything else we can do to make up for the inconvenience of having to transfer rooms.

Conference held there recently...very disappointed in this Hilton property that felt more like a Microtel or Red Roof....not that those don't do a good job, but for a better price and fewer expectations.
Check in was much delayed for some reason. Many people sitting in the lobby waiting for rooms was the first indication of understaffing.

When we arrived, there was coffee and a nice water carafe with lemon in the lobby. The water disappeared TOTALLY after that. We literally had to beg for water anywhere in the hotel!
The water fountains did not work and food service was not forthcoming with providing it for our meeting rooms. In fact, the food served was very ordinary and food service understaffed. With over 100 attendees, more than half were expected to eat outside under a tent. The only Breakfast food, of any kind was ONE choice of a buffet for $11. And again in the lobby that could seat only 40+ people.
On the positive side, the staff was friendly and the rooms clean. On the whole,
I would say this is NOT a good site for anything but small meetings or events.

Please accept our sincere apology for your experience while staying with us.

I can assure you that what you experienced the other day was not our norm, and completely unacceptable to us. We have already had conversations with our team, reiterating that they delay you experienced at check in was unacceptable.

The problem stemmed from allowing too many late check outs from the group inhouse with us the previous day, giving our housekeepers a short window of time to clean enough rooms for our Sunday arrivals.

The hotel would have been able to accommodate the meals in the meeting room. The tent and dining room were arranged based on the direction of the conference organizers, who wanted to give everyone the chance to break from the meeting.

Please feel free to contact me or anyone else in our management team directly if there is anything else we can do to make up for the inconvenience at arrival. We hope that we have the opportunity to regain your loyalty, and look forward to hearing any further feedback you may have.
