“Amazing small hotel with huge rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2011

We were in the area on family business and just needed something reasonably priced and comfortable. We use Priceline quite a bit and that's how we ended up here. The rooms are huge--sitting area, desk area, fridge area, and none of these are in the sleeping area. Shower/commode area small, but sink area roomy. Really, about twice the square footage of the usual 3 star hotel. Nicely designed lobby area, included standard "do it yourself" breakfast, but eggs and couple of other items available for very reasonable prices. Also, casual lunch and dinner choices if eating in is more convenient. Small coffee/cocktail bar, small gym, nice looking pool area, but space where I really want it--in the room. Also, walking distance to the Ringling Museum I visited years ago and enjoyed then. (Don't go to Barnacle Bill's.) Will definitely be on the lookout for other Hyatt Place hotels.

Thank you so much for your great review. Our location, although across from the airport, is really great and convenient to all that Sarasota has to offer. We hope to see you again soon! Have a great Holiday Season!

Hyatt Place in Sarasota is across from the airport, but you never hear the planes and even though we were facing the main street, we did not hear the traffic. The room was 2 double beds with a pull out sofa couch and lots and lots of room.. very comfortable and location great. Free complimentary continental breakfast (cold cereal, muffins, coffee fruit etc) or can order from the menu for hot food . Happy hour with drinks 2 for 1. About 2 blocks from the Ringling Museum and easy access to downtown and beaches.. Will stay there again.

This is a new addition to the Sarasota airport hotel area. Overall, we were pleased with this hotel, we arrived to find out that there were multiple wedding parties in the hotel but when I asked for a quiet room, the desk staff put us in a very nice room at the end of the building. We were happy with the room design, except the shower (hate shower only rooms although this one is much nicer than the holiday inn around the corner). The pool area is very nice, with a great spa, which we enjoyed after the day of driving. Hate the one cup coffee makers that are now trendy but the larger size fridge in the room was nicel. Had to tell hotel staff about a broken beer bottle (lots of broken glass and dreadful smell) in the stairwell, looked like it had been there for a bit, although the hotel cleaning crew kept the floors in the common areas very clean. Overall, we had a pleasant stay and would be happy to stay here again,

Free shuttle from the airport and they take you anywhere to 3 miles around. The people very nice and friendly. Clean and modern.
The town of Sarasota is not for young people. But is shaming. Word of advise buy bottle water, the water had a weird flavor and smell.
Other than that the hotel very clean and comfortable.

Very nice hotel, with spacious rooms, bed area and comfortable lounge area (which can be made into a bed), desk area,refrigerators,coffee makers, free wifi. A microwave is available in the common area but not in the rooms. The beds and linens were very good and comfortable. Nice common area with computers for guests, breakfast room, bar (small but adequate) with food available. The pool was especially nice, and reasonably large- enough to swim laps.. All common areas are fresh , modern and well kept.Free breakfast was pretty typical, but we had no complaints. The specially ordered food however left something to be desired, so I would skip that unless you have a serious case of the midnight munchies. Snacks however, were fine- cookies etc.
The hotel is close to downtown Sarasota (10 minutes perhaps) and close to St Armands Circle and the beach- perhaps 15 mnutes.
The hotel is convenient and being across from the airport very quiet. There are numerous restaurants located just minutes away.The staff is very helpful and pleasant.
All in all an excellent place to stay at a very good price..

Room Tip: I would suggest a room overlooking the pool.

Boutique style hotel opened about 3 years located near the airport with friendly and pleasant staff. Its about 10 minutes drive to downtown Sarasota. Spacious rooms with comfortable beds and lounge area, adequate but small exercise room and salted water swimming pool. Continental breakfast served was decent enough with Starbucks coffee on tap. Two computers and printer in lobby offers free internet access so all in all, a dececnt stay for the price paid.
