“Charming and Very Cozy”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We arrived early for our vacation on Longboat Key and had to wait till the next day to get our condo so stayed at Hotel Indigo. We chose it because it was right downtown Sarasota, so it was close to our favorite restaurants and shops. The hotel was a delight. Staff are very friendly. Everything was clean. We loved the large walk-in shower.

I travel a lot for both business and pleasure and I've stayed at a diverse selection of hotels in Sarasota. By far my favorite is the Hotel Indigo, Great location: close to downtown, the Van Weasel is across the street, Long Boat Key and St Armand's Circle a 5 minute car ride away. Guest rooms are nicely appointed with quality bedding, added amenities and toiletries. The entire staff is friendly and willing to assist in any way they can.
5 stars to Chef Shenker. The restaurant my be limited in space but the quality of food is beyond what you would expect from a hotel restaurant. Chef Shenker accommodates his guests requests and provides a diverse selection to please all foodies. Try it. You won't be disappointed.
Lastly, my 83 yr old mom came with me a few months ago. She wasn't overwhelmed and felt very comfortable left by herself for the day. Thank you Hotel Indigo.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 3rd or 4th floor.

Deer rees3075,
Thank you for your review. We are glad you selected the Savor Sarasota Menu which will now be featured until the end of July. What a wonderful menu! Each menu item was strategically selected by our Chef. We aim to provide food that you love that also appeals to the eye. We agree that our Cheesecake is to die for! Our staff members can vouch for this high demand dessert. We are pleased to know that you loved the murals featuring local neighborhood places. We take pride in our neighborhood story and invite you to explore the vibrant city with the help of our knowledgeable staff members. Look forward to providing you with a customized itinerary in the future!

Hotel Indigo is excellent place to stay. The rooms were very clean, and tastefully decorated. The remainder of the hotel is also very beautiful. We restaurant and bar were great. We had breakfast there two mornings. We were visiting Sarasota and scouting vacation spots for an upcoming family vacation. Hotel Indigo was in a central part of Sarasota and about 10 minute drive from Lido beach and St. Armand's circle. It is about 25 minute drive from Anna Maria Island and about 15 minute drive from Siesta Key. This would be great place for business trip and for some relaxation. However, I would caution it does not have any bay views. At least 10-15 minute walk from Sarasota bay front area.

I stayed at the Indigo while attending a business conference in Sarasota. The hotel was very well maintained and had a friendly staff. Great location, only a two minute drive to most downtown locations and St. Armands Key and Long Boat Key are only 5-10min away depending on traffic. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The Indigo's in house resturant served great room service food.

We ate at this hotel's restaurant as part of the "Savor Sarasota" week, $29 for appetizer, entree and dessert. I should have trusted my instincts; as soon as we walked in it did not look promising. The place had the smell of the rooms at Holiday Inns where one goes for their free continental breakfast. I didn't like any of the entree choices and asked if I could have an appetizer in place of an entree (cheaper for them) and was refused. We ordered the crab-stuffed sea bass. It came to the table far too quickly to have been cooked fresh, and tasted like one of those frozen stuffed fish deals you can buy at Costco. The bread pudding was inedible. while we were eating, they were breaking down a few tables (apparently they are card tables) and the noise was deafening. They got the better end of that deal!

Dear Paul2uuu,
Thank you for your review. We are distraught to hear to that you did not enjoy your H2O Bistro experience. Our lobby is usually filled with the scent of homemade muffins and we use all eco-friendly cleaning products so, we are not quite sure what that smell you experienced was. Chef Sol is superb at what he does, he crafts dishes that tie the local flavor and culinary fusion and we assure you that everything is made from scratch. At the H2O Bistro, we are committed to bringing you the freshest local produce, seafood, meats, dairy and eggs that Sarasota County has to offer. We believe that purchasing whole ingredients from nearby family farms and markets is not only better for your taste buds but also better for our community. This is our local and fresh commitment. In reference to the disassembled restaurant tables, we agree with you! As of this past Thursday we have new community tables (that look amazing by the way) so, no more breaking down and setting up the “card tables” while you are dining.
We hope that you give us another chance to show you how great our restaurant really is. We would love to talk to you to find out more information so that we can work on rectifying the issues you experienced. Please email Ben, our Restaurant Manager (Ben@srqhotel.com), so that we can get in contact with you.
