“Gal Pal trip with the dogs”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

I've stayed at Hotel Indigo Sarasota 4 times, (3 times with my dogs). It is one of my all time favorite hotels. There was a discrepancy with the room, as in I reserved 2 beds, and only a king size bed was available when we arrived. We stayed for 2 nights. The management bent over backwards to accomodate us, and remedy the situation (which they did). The management and staff were wonderful. Lots of area to walk the dogs. Love the area, love the hotel. I just wish there were a few more Hotel indigo's in some of the other cities I go to. Definitely my "go to" hotel when I am in Sarasota.

Green Features: They are very in tuned to environmental practices, and they just installed an amazing waterfall drinking water filtration system.

stayed two nights at this hotel for a wedding. The rooms are gorgeous too many amenities to tell of. ONe of my favorites is the carafe to fill your water downstairs at their filtered water fall/fountain. Really pretty hotel 5 minutes from downtown. The price was right and we would definately go back again!

Great for an overnight get-away. The lovely splashing fountain, large spas (cold water and one hot) were quite nice. The deck around them intimate but sterile - a couple of potted plants would have made it feel more festive and tropical. Shade from the building covers this area in the mid-afternoon.
Was very pleased at how much I enjoyed the menu; eclectic and enjoyable. My dinner of edamame and vegetable flat bread with a delicious finish of apple tart (flakely pastry and delicate apple filling) was perfect! The house sauvignon blanc and cabernet were flavorful and reasonable.
The TV selections were lacking and the time between channels was LONG. Seems trite but, if you enjoy good TV programming, it matters.
The décor of the room and all the amenities were welcoming and playful. Even a couple hours of "work" was everything but as the lighting, reading chair and desk were ideal.
I would like to return again for a mini-retreat from Marco Island to the "big city" of Sarasota, a very charming, cultural delight.

This is an awesome hotel! Right in the heart of downtown and easy to get to. Parking is convenient. The room was gorgeous and spotless! The only (very minor) inconvenience is that the restaurant didn't have fresh brewed coffee in the afternoon or evening. It's a rather small hotel and I guess coffee isn't in that much demand outside of regular meal time. Other than that, absolutely no complaints.

I have stayed at another Indigo Hotel, and had a wonderful experience. This short stay was so disappointing. The hotel is very clean, and I love love love the Aveda products and the decor. The staff was totally amazing....but there were a few things that happened that were such a bummer. First, I lost my TV cable connection. It was about 9:30 at night, I was tired from flying all day....I opted to turn it off and fall asleep than call housekeeping...But I just wanted to veg out for a little bit. The next morning, my room service arrived at 7:40- which would have been great, except I asked for it to come between 6:30-7.....I really needed it between 6-6:30, but 6:30-7 was the earliest option....Luckily the coffee came in a to-go cup. I had a couple bites of the bagel, it was 'ok'. Lastly, I had some issues with the loo flushing properly. I was only in town for one night, so they didn't have much of a chance to right the wrongs....I mentioned all of these items to the staff when I checked out and they were very apologetic....Hopefully they can get the cable issues squared away for other guests. I would stay at an Indigo again.

Green Features: Awesome, but put the water up on the guestroom floors, so we don't have to walk back to the main level.

Dear ConnecticutSunshine,
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We are truly sorry that your stay was not up to our usual standards. We are in the process of working with Comcast to upgrade our cable service to a digital platform and due to circumstances beyond our control have experienced a few glitches with the process. Please do let someone know if you have an issue in the future as we are able to rectify cable issues very quickly. We do apologize that there was a miscommunication regarding the delivery time for your breakfast. We hope that the inconvenience did not cause you to be late for an important meeting and we hope that the coffee helped somewhat. We are happy that you chose to stay with us and we sincerely hope that you will return and afford us the opportunity to improve your experience.

2 day business stay. Amazing customer service and tasty food from the restaurant. Ordered room service, told it would be 15 minutes and low and behold it was. Steak and cheese sandwich was delicious. Comfortable bed. Only problem was with the boardroom being so close to the kitchen. All of a sudden everyone in the room had stinging eyes. Went to check and they were cooking onions in the kitchen. The smell was very strong in the room and we were very uncomfortable through a 3 hour meeting.  Otherwise was a great stay

Room Tip: Views aren't that great

Dear Ramblingwelove,
Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with this feedback. We apologize for the onions! Chef makes a killer French Onion Soup but we certainly need to take into account that the boardroom is right next to the kitchen and in the future will not cook onions during meeting times. We truly appreciate your insight and we are very happy that you enjoyed the rest of your experience. We hope that you will come back and visit us soon.
