Reviewed February 10, 2013

This is a very clean hotel with a "seaside cottage" feel to it. I personally liked the wooden floors in the bedrooms. The staff were excellent and welcoming. The breakfast was also excellent with good service. Could have had better coffee - but then I am very choosy about coffee and like it very aromatic. The steelcut oats were the best and the blueberries were very fresh. I travel several times a month and this hotel makes a change from the usual chains and the "look alike" phenomena. The shower was wonderful - spacious and efficient.

Thank you Pam B for your comments, “Seaside Cottage” is a great reference to our hotel. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the breakfast and the service. We would like to think we are something unique and special, not like the Cookie cutter feel some hotels give. Again, thank you and we hope to have you back again.

This is our second visit in 3 years to this hotel. We found it very friendly and very convenient for everywhere in Sarasota. There is secure undercover parking if you want it and it is very clean and comfortable. Wireless internet is slow but it is free to use and the air condiitioning units are very noisy and tend to blow freezing cold air out if you are anywhere near to it. This made it difficult to sleep with the air con on and eventually I had to turn it off. Also a lighted shaving/makeup mirror in the bathroom would be most useful. I would say this is the best place in Sarasota that we have stayed.

Moderntraveller, we are glad to have you back again. Sorry to hear about the wireless, we are always finding ways to improve and we appreciate your feedback. We just installed make up mirrors in our guest’s bathrooms, wish we had them in place while you were here. Thanks for naming us the best place in Sarasota and we look forward to your return in the future.

While traveling with my mother and sister we chose to stay at this hotel. We booked a room with two queen beds but when we got there they told us we got an "upgrade" apparently to them the upgrade was a king sized bed and a fold out sofa bed. We tried to complain and they told us there were no other rooms so basically we could check out or deal with it... Terrible hotel! I do not recommend!!!

Meghan G, it was never our intention to make your stay uncomfortable. We always try to upgrade our Priority club members to our executive rooms. It seems that in this case we in-fact made your stay worse, and for that, we apologize. We hope that you will give us another try and we have made a note in your guest profile to be sure not to change your room type. Thank you again for your feedback it is always appreciated.

Hotel Indigo fit for what we wanted to do in Sarasota, visit my daughter it’s not the place if you think the beach is nearby. The hotel is clean the staff is friendly and accommodating, we did not try the food. Parking in the small lot by the door or underground is fine.

Dash4006, we are glad you came to spend time with your daughter. It is even better that you chose to enjoy your time at our hotel. We are not right on the beach but conveniently located in Downtown Sarasota. We hope you come back whenever you are in town.

We really enjoyed our stay here at this wonderful boutique type hotel located in the heart of downtown Sarasota! We chose it because it was within walking distance to the VanWeizel Center and were pleased to find great rooms and very helpful staff!

We booked here following a great stay last year. Not quite as good this year. Hotel nice decor, clean, lovely rooms and helpful staff. The problem was a noisy room. AC very noisy and so switched it off and opened the window, then the traffic noise did not allow a restful night sleep. We also had to ask the staff to remove the fridge which also was very noisy. A shame as our stay last year was excellent. Suggest rooms at the front of the hotel are quiet.
