Had occasion to go to the pool bar on a Saturday afternoon. Lisa, the bartender, was so personable! We had such a fun time. There was a wonderful DJ and Lisa helped everyone there enjoy the afternoon. There was dancing and singing(several of the guests joined in with some Kareoke). We were so glad we chose the pool bar with the Lisa & Joe Combo....AWESOME EXPERIENCE!! Thank you Aloft!
Clean and above average
This Aloft is an Aloft. Utilitarian. Does the trick. Clean, beds were comfortable, nice staff. Great if you’re just sleeping there. I thought the price was good for the location (near two restaurants at the marina and the Main Street of shops).
The hotel lobby is a bit stark and very modern. Check in was easy and the people very friendly. Seems like a younger clientele. The only negative is that the hallways and rooms are noisy! I was taking a nap before dinner and I truly thought someone was coming into my room. It was someone going into another room down the hall. Oddly noisy. Even when people are walking down the hallway to their room. They’re not talking loudly, but I can hear every word they’re saying. So bring ear plugs. If you’re a light sleeper, I’d go somewhere else.
Great location- ok rooms
Hotel is in a great location, and rooms are fine but hotel comes off as dirty right when you walk in. Just like other Marriott hotels, it needs a good scrubbing. Valet is only $20 which is a bargain and you can walk to great restaurants and the water. Fine for the price or 30k Points.
Sarasota Biz trip
Good place in Sarasota. Hotel was clean and staff was friendly. Rooms are normal and not very big. I guess that is Aloft style. No upgrades available as all rooms are the same. Rooms are quiet and very dark which is good for nice sleeping. Breakfast is just a few items to pick from nothing fancy. The pool is really nice and kinda rooftop. It is weird that apartments completely overlook the pool, But overall its nice. several shops and restaurants are nearby and within walking distance. Also, there is a waterfront within walking distance as well. Good place for a short business trip. Enjoy!
