“Good City Centre Hotel”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

We spent one night in this hotel when visiting Sarasota as part of our holiday in Florida. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms large and comfortable. It is very convenient for the city centre and for the harbour and has a large underground car park. The air conditioning in our room was rather noisy but perhaps we were just unlucky.
The bar/restaurant was very pleasant (although we only had a drink as we were eating out) and reasonably priced for a city centre hotel. There are also plenty of local restaurants as alternatives for breakfast.
The leisure area consists of 2 small "plunge" pools (one hot and one cold) and a number of loungers whereas we felt one small swimming pool would have been a better use of the space.
Overall we felt it was an excellent hotel and would not hesitate to stay there again if we're back in Sarasota.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the lifts!

My father and I stayed at the Hotel Indigo for two nights. Everything associated with our stay there was excellent. The room was large, clean and very comfortable. The breakfast and dinners were very good and moderately priced, a rarity at a hotel. The staff couldn't have been more courteous and helpful. The building only has four floors, so there aren't hordes of people in the lobby and elevators. The business center had two computers and a printer. The room rate was very reasonable. The location was excellent, only three miles from the Ringling Museum. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Saratoga.

I had to make a business trip with a colleague to Sarasota in June. Our host had recommended the best hotel in town on grounds of convenience to his office and location in general. But we were only staying two nights; we knew we would only be in the rooms for 9 hours, 8 of which would be spent sleeping or showering and it seemed hard to justify the expense when we did not need all of the amenities that the high price delivered. So we hunted around and found the Indigo less than 1/4 of a mile from the suggested site and booked online from the UK.

What a good decision.

The hotel has great staff - very friendly and helpful. The bar at the front seemed to be supported by locals who were not residents - always a good, and unusual, sign. Breakfasts were very good indeed. None of this "Cook it at 6am, leave it under a hot light and hope nobody notices" nonsense. Everything was cooked fresh to order and things that should be served cold (orange juice) were served cold and things that should be served hot (cooked food and coffee) were served hot. Now that might sound rather obvious - but for anyone who stays in hotel chains across the US that might sound like a bit of a longed for aspiration.

The rooms were very comfortable and spacious and the price was very reasonable.

I highly recommend the Indigo both for business or leisure stays.

What a great find in Sarasota. We were so glad that we chose to stay at The Indigo Hotel. It was delightful. A very customer service orientated hotel. We also enjoyed their breakfast. We plan to stay the next time we are in Sarasota.

This hotel is perfect for individuals, families. It is well located to get around Sarasota, whether on business or for pleasure. The rooms are well-appointed, clean and roomy. There is a nice bar and restaurant which has music in the evenings (at least on weekends). The service throughout the hotel is very good: friendly, courteous and prompt. Hotel Indigo is perhaps the best value in hotels in the Sarasota area. We shall return!

We are regular visitors to Sarasota from Ireland. We stay at the hotel at least 5 times a year. We discovered it by chance on our second visit and have never looked back. The hotel is very well situated, very clean, Wi-fi included and free parking. The rooms are comfortable and the decor gives a sense of freshness and relaxation. The food in the restaurant is great and the staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. We love coming back, have never been disappointed and every visit feels like a holiday!
