    Basic option in Sarasota, no frills

    We booked a 3 night stay. As Ambassadors there are no upgrade options as all the rooms are the same. However they do recognize status and gave me a handwritten card and amenity upon arrival. Keep in mind that it's not a resort and there are no views with rooms being on the smaller side. We got a corner room that you could see the ocean in the distance (Sorta). If you are looking to be in the Sarasota area and will spend minimal time in your room then this is a good option. The pool is located between the two apartment buildings that the hotel is between which is a bit strange. You are within walking to distance to restaurants, water views, etc. The internet was fast and reliable. There was one desk for working so not ideal for couples who both need to work remotely.

    Plain, boring room but clean

    Hotel is in a great location. The rooms are very minimalistic. There is one small closet with a couple of drawers for clothing. Rooms are clean. Our room had a zero view: Street and buildings. Air conditioning worked great. Valet was easy to use.

    Very Nice Hotel

    I want to start by saying I knew this wasn’t a “resort hotel” when I made our reservation. But, this also isn’t a “resort hotel”. It isn’t on the beach & while nice, the pool is pretty standard as far as hotel pools. What this hotel does have going for it is it’s location in a different way. It is only 2 short blocks from the waterfront marina & park (a couple good restaurants there, boats & park activities) & is within easy walking distance of many very good restaurants, shopping & grocery stores. It is also an easy car ride (10-30 minutes depending on traffic) from at least 4 beaches as well as other restaurants. Our room was very spacious with plenty of space for the 3 of us (& could add a 4th with no problem). The lobby is nice & open with a bar that appeared popular. The exercise room had plenty of machines & space to workout. The pool was nice, if standard. We used both several times. The valets were nice & got to recognize us & talked to us every day, asked what we were planning & gave us suggestions. Definitely a hotel I’d consider staying at again if we return to Sarasota.

    Short but very pleased

    Beautiful hotel, great location, love the room layout, awesome pool on rooftop with a bar! We only stayed one night and was so sad to leave so soon. We walked to a delicious Mexican restaurant, El Melvins and had ice cream close by. We also drove to Lido Beach which was a great beach with tons of amenities!!

    Nice Aloft

    I have been to this property a few times. The swimming pool is on the rooftop with DJ and a bar. Also, they have a Jacuzzi next to there. The rooms are very modern I had a nice view of the Swimming pool. On the first floor at the lobby, there offered a nice bar scene the XYWZ where you have a nice pool table to enjoy. Thank you for all.. we ll back soon
