A very chic hotel situated in the historical downtown of Sarasota. The lady who checked us is was extremely pleasant and provided us with a free upgrade. The condition of our room was lovely. The room had everything you needed although it took a while to find the iron and board as it was hidden in a shelf by the shower window. Overall a very pleasant place to be the lobby had free games to play including a pool table. Would definitely use again if ever in Sarasota. Will also look for this brand when booking at other destinations.

  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities

They couldn't find my reservation and questioned if I was even at the right hotel. Incredibly rude! She found it in her system after I had to go back to my car to get some information. Then wouldn't let me pay cash, in advance, for all days (and put security deposit on cc). Hot tub didn't work, either. Went for a special occasion and these issues could have ruined it. Not a pleasant experience at all. Stayed at other Alofts around the world (Hong Kong, Guangzhou, etc.) and this is just not the same. Can't say I'll be back.

It was a nice modern and clean hotel. Easy to get to the beach and else where from its downtown location. It was in walking distance to great restaurants and coffee shops.
