The staff is awesome, helpful, and nice. There are ping pong tables, Foos ball tables, an air hockey table, life sized chess, board games, and a video game area called The Cove (3 consoles). You can fish with their poles ($6.00) for bait, and use some of their pool toys. The view on the north side is very pretty. The spa is very small but nice. The hotel is located within walking distance of downtown Sarasota with lots of restaurants and shops and a Whole Foods. The hotel is a very nice place. The club is great. 2 bads- the awful fan on top of the ballroom roof is incredibly loud. We were on the top floor of the hotel on the east side of the building and it sound like a loud car engine right outside our window. I can’t imagine it on the lower floors. It ruined the experience on the balcony. Ask for a west side room, this is very, very important. Second if you want to eat at the hotel for breakfast or lunch, you need reservations pretty far in advance. They only have one restaurant and they do not turn tables over hardly at all. We had to eat dinner at 4:45 in order to get a meal there. When we left around 6pm, the restaurant was only about a quarter full. They actually told us to go to another hotel to eat if that time would not work. I will definitely stay here again, but I would get a room on the west side of the hotel facing north and make meal reservations. They have really wonderful staff, which really made up for the roof fan.

Our room was fitted with a computer jack, and I had brought my Ethernet cable so I wouldn't have to worry about WiFi security - but the jack didn't work - nor did the jack in an adjoining room. The maintenance worker told us most of the jacks didn't work, but the front desk was surprised when I told them. For as beautiful as this property was, I found the lack of internet security odd.

The check-in process was easy. Luke was welcoming and personal. The service was top notch. The couple of times I called to have a need met it was almost as if staff was waiting outside of my door to deliver what I had asked for. It was that fast! Free bottled water and dispensers of fruit water throughout the hotel and beach club kept us hydrated and happy throughout our stay in the hot Florida climate. The spa was lovely. I took a class and a guided walk and the instructors were welcoming and professional. The hotel is within walking distance of downtown Sarasota and restaurants, Whole Foods, and theaters. In order to get to the beach, you must take a shuttle which also stops at St. Armands circle. Some days the shuttle ran 1/hour, others 2/hour. We definitely appreciated the flexibility of the more frequent shuttle. The only small complaint we would have is that there was nothing special about our room. There was nothing wrong with it, but it was a run of the mill hotel room.

You can literally walk everywhere. The service is great. The rooms are impeccable. The pool area is relaxing and of course the comfort is outstanding. The restaurant options around the hotel is great and all within walking distance. This hotel also has a beach area which is also very comfortable and relaxing.
