I made this reservation 6 months in advance. For $350+ per night, I expect luxury and service. What we received, instead, was 1. Our greeting upon our 3:15 pm arrival: "Let me see if I have a room for you." 2. Room carpeting had no padding, so it's HARD. 3. Beds very soft. 4.

Located conveniently blocks from Main Street and about 15 minutes from Siesta Key Beach this ALoft hotel is a true testament to the brand Starwood(now Marriot) sought to create. Hip, happening and customer focused. After checking in the front desk staff constantly referred to

My second great stay at the Aloft brand. Clean comfortable rooms, and although compact, certainly not claustrophobic. One of the better exercise rooms I have seen on my travels, comfortable temperature, clean and well equipped. The decor is fun and different, with a very lively

We drove from Tampa on Friday afternoon to visit a nearby Ringling College. Was greeted by very friendly and courteous attendant. Once in a lobby, it was very noisy since the bar takes up most of the lobby space. Only one receptionist at a very small check-in counter.

Check in was difficult as I had to shout my information to the receptionist due to the live musician at the entrance way. Felt like the receptionist was on his first day of work and I was not recognized at all as a Bonvoy member. Arrived in my room on the 8th floor to find

Thank you for choosing to stay with us during your recent visit to Sarasota. It appears there were several missed opportunities to provide you with the experience a Bonvoy member such as yourself would expect, and we apologize for any inconvenience this caused. We would be glad to accommodate you to another part of the hotel that better fit your needs upon request and depending on availability. Our Splash Pool Bar is open for both dinner and lunch, and our hours are listed for your convenience. The feedback you shared is appreciated, and we hope we may have another chance for an improved stay!

How far are you from the beach? Any running trails close by? Kind regards,
The Bay Area is close by. The beach is 10 minutes by car, Lido Beach. Not sure about walking tours near downtown the best on in the area is Legacy Trail. Not too far from downtown around 15 mins by car.

I know this is late sorry just got question. I am guessing 5 miles. However you are walking distance from downtown and that is an awesome spot. Locals go there not as expensive and the nightlife is nice. Good restaurant and a comedy club.
