Great location, very convenient for everything we wanted to do (Lido Key, Ringling, downtown, etc)
-This is, without a doubt, the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. Every part of the hotel we saw was spotless. During our two-night stay, housekeeping did a fantastic job of sprucing up our room.
-The room itself, a "plush 2-queen" room was VERY spacious. There was no feeling of claustrophobia I've found in some hotel rooms. The bathroom is huge for a hotel.
-All staff were helpful and courteous, for the little we actually interacted with them.
-The hotel is on a side street and has a very brightly lit underground parking garage.
-There is an on-site fitness room with 24-hour access.
-The beds were very very firm and hard. The pillows, small and very very lumpy. (But the sheets were clean and soft.)
-The shower head is very high on the bathroom wall, and it's hard to adjust for direction. There are no adjustments for water flow/massage/etc.
-There was only one comfortable chair in the room. Not very convenient when the room was booked for two adults. We took turns sitting in the chair... not ideal.
-Our room was the closest room to the elevator, and we spent a lot of time listening to loud conversations outside our door. We were too tired from our day's adventures to ask for a different room, Fortunately, as the evening progressed the noise stopped.
-The A/C unit is powerful ( I like a loud a/c unit when I sleep... drowns out hallway noise, etc) and the hotel uses a key card-activated system which is great for the environment. The downside was that there was no "constant fan" option. When the a/c unit cycled off it was deathly quiet in the room and outside noise became readily apparent. Whenever the a/c kicked on it beeped first. That makes for a long night for light sleepers.
-There was no DVD player as advertised. (But there was a wine fridge, which we weren't expecting.)
-A complimentary snack on a bed tray is a nice touch, but it seems silly to leave one bottle of tea and one itty bitty packet of trail mix in a room booked for two adults.
-The "wading pools/hot+cool tubs" were in a tiny concrete patio area next to the street and the driveway. We didn't bother with them. The beach is ten minutes away, and it's beautiful.
-No complimentary breakfast. We really expect that at this price point. This is a chain hotel, after all. (We knew this before hand, so it wasn't really an issue, but still...)
-Put Keurig machines in the rooms. We did expect that from a Hotel Indigo b/c others do have these.
Overall, I would stay again if I could get this room at the same price I paid (advance purchase during October, which is still off season in FL.) I would probably not stay here if it meant paying full season prices. (Although knowing it's so clean might tip the scale.)
