We'd never been to Sarasota and were looking for a conveniently located hotel that had parking to make our local touring easy. Hotel Indigo turned out to be that and more. Our room, #327, was large,with two queen beds and quiet., The bathroom was a surprise because the shower was huge...a walk-in that could have easily handled three people at one time. The shower itself delivered plenty of hot water with a small twist and everything else that was important to a bathroom was fine.

The Hotel offers free parking on its lot and has an underground garage that can handle overflow vehicles. It is a real value to have this amenity available.

Two things that could use some attention. The storage space for your stuff was limited to a small free-standing armoire-sort of cheesy and two shelves in the cabinet that held the TV. If one was only staying for a day or two, it was not a big deal, but longer stays would have been inconvenient. The other, to us, a more important shortcoming, was the lack of good light in the room. There was one underpowered standing lamp on the night table between the two beds, but it didn't provide enough candlepower for one to comfortably read. I dont know why U.S. hotels don;t follow the lead of many European places and install a flexible arm reading lamp on each side of a king bed,or in the case of queens, over each bed.

This was not critical....just annoying.

The staff were extremely affable and willing to help with restaurant suggestions (all turned out well) and a generally welcoming disposition. The first floor restaurant serves a buffet breakfast for $ 12.95 that includes cooked to order omelets, eggs, etc.

LOCATION- The Indigo is superbly located to be within walking distance (10-15 minutes) of a restaurant row or driving distance to many attractions and highway junctions that will take you where you need to go.

All in all, the Hotel Indigo is real winner.

Room Tip: There are four floors. Third floor -facing north is very quiet.

The moment you walk in the door the fragrance of coconut welcomes your senses. This is a BEAUTIFUL property located right in the "heart of Sarasota. Walk to the Van Wezel theater across the street or stroll downtown. Located right across from the bay you get to enjoy one of the worlds premiere marinas. One caveat...something needs to be done to improve the in house dining experience. The "restaurant" looks like a high school cafeteria and the food isn't much better.

Thank you for your positive review towards our hotel Gpetriestorystar. We’re definitely glad that you were able to enjoy the property and its surroundings of what Sarasota has to offer. If you happen to return any time in the future, I saw there were a few things on your list that weren’t mentioned such as the Ringling Museum or the Mote Marine Aquarium. Both of which would definitely be a great experience.

I had the pleasure of using the Hotel Indigo for a local workshop that I was presenting yesterday. This was the first time I had used the Hotel Indigo but it will not be the last! Being a very small group I did not expect the level of service that was extended to my group! I can honestly say that we received nothing less than "Ritz Carlton" service from the entire staff yesterday! From the moment we arrived and thought the day staff was checking in to make sure we had coffee, water and some sweet treats for the afternoon! Breakfast and lunch was outstanding and served with a smile! Your hotel added to the greatness of our workshop experience and I cannot thank you enough!

I would also like to comment on the professionalism and help from Lany the banquet manager she was a delight to work with!

Floridawillsgirl, thank you for your review about our hotel! It is so nice to hear that your meeting experience was positive. We love the fact that our hotel is small enough to allow our meeting attendees to feel like they are our biggest group to take care of… because they are!!. Thank you for referring to our service as nothing less than the “Ritz Carlton.” We look forward to holding one of your meetings here again in the future!

This was our first stay in Sarasota, calling in on relatives on our way from Orlando to The Keys. Sarasota is a lovely place and the Indigo a wonderful hotel. Everything is clean and fresh, the staff are welcoming and very helpful. Our room on the third floor was great with a huge shower. Our package included the breakfast buffet - which was superb. All you could wish for - omelette station, bacon, sausage etc, cereal, fruit and toast - BUT (and this really bugs me) if you want juice, which we did, you have to pay extra for it. It takes about ten minutes to walk into the main restaurant area downtown, and I would strongly recommend The Bijou Cafe - it's wonderful. All in all a great stay in a great hotel.

This was our first trip to Sarasota, and the Hotel Indigo proved to be a perfect location - very quick and easy to get to many places of interest. The free parking and wifi are great perks. The hotel has a very inviting lobby, bright, clean & airy; the staff was very friendly, the rooms were comfortable and spacious. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel to others.
