    Property condition

    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

    Clean and modern, but lacking service

    Very cool hotel, very clean. The front desk employees were not very friendly or accommodating. We were there for a “staycation” night for our anniversary and felt a little put-off by the service. The room was great, but the pillows and bed weren’t the comfiest. Fantastic location and loved the lobby! Gym was very nice!

    Great place to stay. Nice location. Beautiful and clean. I would avoid the handicap shower if possible. Water leaked out everywhere Staff personnel were very helpful.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Fun and relaxing ambiance in the heart of Sarasota. We enjoyed our stay very much and took advantage of the gorgeous pool, bar and board games available on site. The two things I would've liked to see there were a bathtub in the rooms and a designated/"real" restaurant rather than the "on the go" format currently available.

    Stayed 8 nights in Dec 2019
