“warm and welcoming”
Reviewed 25 November 2012

We had a very enjoyable 2 night stay at this hotel at the beginning of November. Even though we were a couple of hours early we were able to check in and access our room. Very friendly and informative staff providing directions and maps of the local area. We chose the room rate that included breakfast, this does save money, however we were disappointed when informed that orange juice was not included in this offer, even though tea and coffee were. The location of the hotel does allow easy access to the historic and Old Town as well as a 10 minute walk to the Harbour. Our room on the front of the Hotel was well appointed with a comfortable bed and clean and modern bathroom, the only downside was the A\C unit which was noisy and we did turn it off during the night along with the fridge for the same reason. Overall a very nice hotel.

DorsetCrowdedHouse, thank you for your feedback. It means a lot coming from a guest who traveled all the way from Dorset to visit us!

We’re sorry that you had some troubles with the AC and orange juice. Next time you’re in town, we promise a glass of OJ on the house :-)

Thank you for taking the time to review and for your kind words. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

I had the pleasure of staying in this hotel twice for 3 or 4 day trips over the past couple of months and the staff there is warm, friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms are bright and comfortable and the location is perfectly central to everything the Sarasota community has to offer. I ate dinner in the restaurant twice and found it to be reasonably priced and good quality food. This hotel offers an exceptional value and fun, quality accommodations. I would certainly stay here again. One note, it's a bit hard to find the entrance!

Room Tip: Get a room with a fridge, they are bigger!

Nice place. They did a great job with the decor, but they forgot the basics - SLEEPING CONDITIONS! Yes, the AC cools (or warms) the room, but it will keep you awake all night. It's really loud. It turns on with a clink and a clunk, followed by a loud hum that continues for about 5 minutes, then it turns off with the same obnoxious sound; 5 minutes later it turns on... and this goes on all night long - on, off, on, off, until you turn it off. I guess you could set the thermostat to 32 and it would never turn off. We finally chose to turn it off at 5am and it got really warm (78) by 6am. It was 60 degrees outside. So my recommendation is to stop by for a look and a drink, then go stay somewhere else to sleep.

JaxJack, we’re sorry you had this issue with our AC. We agree with you 100% that sleeping conditions are the most important component of any hotel stay. We regret deeply that we were not able to provide that for you.

I will pass this information along to Frank, our Director of Engineering and we will get this fixed. We sincerely hope that you are willing to give us another chance. Please call ahead and ask for Leslie. We’ll make sure this does not happen again.

We spent two days here while touring the Sarasota area. It was a perfect spot for us. The decor of blue, white and green, is perfect for the locale & the small dining room is casual but very attractive & features a perfect sit-up bar. Staff and manager were friendly and helpful with site suggestions & directions.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side of the hotel arel quieter. There is both above ground and underground parking

This is more of a boutique hotel and less of your Hyatt/Holiday Inn type hotel, but it's not pretentious in the least. The decor is very Florida; they've used a blue/green beach glass motif and it's really pretty. The lobby has a bar (beer/wine only) and sitting areas as well as the check-in desk. The staff was extremely accommodating (Thank YOU, Avery, for tracking down my sweater!) and professional. Our room did not have a view, but since we were mostly in the room to sleep, we didn't mind. It was a very large room with a refrigerator and coffee maker. The beautiful contemporary bathroom included robes. We walked to lunch in the "downtown" area of Sarasota which has many nice shops and restaurants, but drove to dinner as this time of year it is quite dark there by 7 p.m. Although we could have walked to the opera, the science museum and several other attractions, we drove to the Marie Selby botanical garden (10 minutes) on the first day and on the second, we also drove to the Ringling Museum (15 minutes). Breakfast is not included in your room rate (which was extremely reasonable especially compared to other hotels in the area), but we ate there anyway for the convenience. It's buffet style with omelets made to order. My husband really enjoyed his omelet. I had oatmeal. You can walk to a restaurant that serves breakfast if you like a more substantial meal. All in all, we really enjoyed this quiet little oasis near the heart of bustling Sarasota.

Room Tip: You may want to ask for a room on the opposite side of the parking area as there is quite a bit of a...

My wife and I are snobs. But we don't want top shelf, expensive, lush, [garish] luxury. We want clean, simple, modern, comfortable. That typically means a small boutique hotel - the kind that tend to be hard to find on the interwebs...
Who knew a chain hotel would satisfy these two snobs?
If you want plush, deep carpets go elsewhere. If you want crystal chandeliers, find them down the street. If you want Motel 6, go to Motel 6. But if you want wood floors, simple appointments, a careful design aesthetic, and well thought out bathrooms - come to Indigo.
It's not super elite. It's not Phillipe Stark/Gordon Ramsey high-end. But for the price they do a heck of a job.
It will be my go-to chain from now on.

This property was chosen to accommodate our wedding party and family and it was a SUPERB choice! We loved the BEACHY feel that was chic and classy...pristine clean....and located near just about everything! The wedding took place at the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens just about a mile or two up the street...super convenient! The staff were quite friendly and our hotel service superior.

Only note of caution...be aware that there are handicap accessible rooms and hearing impaired rooms. We had asked for a handicap accessible room for our elderly mother but received a hearing impaired room not knowing the difference. There were no rails in the bathroom or in the shower and she did not shower, only sponge bathed, during our entire stay. When I brought this to the attention of the staff, the quickly apologized and realized that even a hearing impaired room (which many elderly can be) should also have handicap accessiility...i.e. rails to hold on to. Most elderly who need handicap accessibility also need the hearing impaired amenities so I hope they will attend to this issue.

Great job! Loved it! We hope we can stay there again some day!

Room Tip: When asking for a handicap room, be sure to know there are handicap accessible rooms and hearing imp...
