The room was great! The service was great! However, I was disappointed by two things: 1) Almost every employee and guest did not wear a mask inside the building even though we are still in a pandemic, especially in Florida. I found this to be both disturbing and alarming since this hotel is located directly across the street from the airport, where people are traveling from all different locations, easily spreading COVID-19 at a place like this hotel. 2) The channel for CBS was not on any television in the building as it was no longer supported by the company's subscription. I found this to be odd since all other channels like ABC, NBC, FOX, and premium cable channels were accessible. CBS is an unbiased network that provides journalism based on truth and science, so it was unusual that it was not available in Sarasota, Florida.
TV channels aside, my overall impression of this hotel's lack of concern about the ongoing global pandemic of COVID-19 did not make me feel comfortable, especially since it is located directly across the street from an airport with hundreds of travelers arriving everyday from all over the country. At a minimum, masks should be required inside the building's public spaces.
