Loved it!Posted Aug 22, 2014
Cons: Memory foam pillows.
Location: Went to Ringling Cdazan , kayaking, bike riding, little harbor marina, massage at Massage Envy, lunch at Ringling, the Columbian in Ybor, the original
Really everything was so fantastic. Just 2 pts. When I got to the hotel late in the evening. I said I had asked for a two bed room. The gal helping me said, "no you didn't". I said I definitely did, her reply was the same with indignation. I said, "look at my paperwork". She said, "well that's really confusing, they shouldn't do that". Keep in mind she was the first person I spoke with on entering your hotel. Lastly, I'm in the CGAUX. When renting a kayak, we were told we didn't have to wear a pfd. I would recommend you tell everyone they must wear it for your protection and theirs. Then if they choose not to, it's on them.

Stayed there for a 5 day coursePosted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: Nice pool. Nice staff.
Cons: Should include the resort fee in the Expedia price, rather than charge as an extra cost item after checked in.
Location: Near all the nice beaches, especially Siesta Beach which is my favourate. Only 5 minutes away from Sarasota Airport.
Nice hotel and very friendly staff. Not happy with a "Resort Fee" that they charge you that is above and beyond the amount already prepaid to Expedia. Should have been included in the Expedia price. Dining room and lounge is only so so. Room is nice but the bathroom needs update. Pool is very nice. Conference room (main ballroom) very large and airy. Location is great.

Great stayPosted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: Pool Rooms Location
Cons: Service at breakfast Bigger beds
Location: Very close to bay waterfront and marina A couple of miles to Lido beach and St Armands circle
Stayed here for 4 nights on our recent trip to Sarasota. Arrived and was able to check in promptly even though there was a problem with the reservation system. Room was ready and was very bright and clean. Had lovely view over the bay. Hotel facilities were excellent - pool lovely and plenty of seating/loungers around pool. Bikes could be hired and suggested cycling routes given. Also water sports - paddle and peddle boats, kayaks etc were available. Our rate also included breakfast. There was a very good selection and it was well organised and tasty. A couple of times at breakfast we had to ask a few times for juice/coffee refills but this was a very small complaint in the grand scheme of things. Overall the staff were very helpful and we would not hesitate to return in the future.

Bathroom very small. $15.00 per day "resort" fee on top of room rate. Staff added more of a tip on my credit card after I signed and left a cash tip!!!
