Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 239 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent service and comfortable stay We picked this hotel for its location. It was a clear winner - the staff were consistently friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable (particularly during an unusually hot week in Sarasota). There was plenty of parking. The hotel restaurant was excellent. The only negative comment is that the pool was so small as to be unusable (essentially 3 1/2 feet x 3 1/2 feet). However, the fitness center was quite good. July 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Modernes Hotel Modernes und gepflegtes Hotel an guter Lage. Sehr gute Parkplatzmöglichkeiten. Leider machen die Aufzüge im Hotel einen sehr unangenehmen Lärm, daher unbedingt Zimmer in der Nähe der Aufzüge vermeiden! July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by overall experience Hotel has a positive vibe throughout, from employee reception, to food service to room design and comfort. It exemplifies a hotel experience that is equal to some of the finest hotels in the country. This is a five star hotel on all counts. June 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean comfortable rooms and great customer service From the time we walked in we were greeted with a smile and the customer service professionalism continued for the duration of our stay. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, the food was outstanding to point that we didn't feel the need to go elsewhere to eat. We were overall very happy with our stay and whenever we need a get-away we will definitely stay here again. June 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I was looking for! I live in Florida, on the east coast in a beach resort. My husband and I were looking for a quick get away to someplace we had never been before and non beach. We are former urbanites and really miss the urban vibe of Chicago. The Hotel Indigo was just what the doctor ordered -- great vibe, urban feel and a very modern hotel. The staff was warm and friendly, the breakfast buffet (when purchasing the breakfast option) a very good value and the location was great. Many resturants (and good ones) are within walking distance. I love Sarasota -- we will be back! June 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service and location My wife and I took a short vacation to Sarasota. We always stay at the Indigo, primarily due to the staff. But every visit is a little better. One night after dinner we enjoyed the best cheesecake anywhere! During the last few times we have been to the Indigo, noticed that there is remodeling project. It seems nearly complete and I really like it. The hotel maintained its warm feel but just a touch more modern and more sophisticated. Sarasota has a beautiful downtown, the Indigo is walking distance, so we took time to explore. Of course, the main reason to go to Sarasota on vacation is the beaches. Siesta Keys is the best, but Lido is very good. Fortunately, the Indigo is only minutes by car and by bike from these beaches. June 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Breakfast Buffet Food was great, but for the value I would like to have had milk or orange juice with it! Everything else was great, super friendly, clean, loved it!! June 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very cozy Very clean and nice room decor. Staff very generous. I will like the hotels that are part of the IHG group. Restaurant so pleasant and clean. June 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great service Absolutely wonderful experience. I would recommend to anyone. The hotel is small, quaint, very clean and satisfying. June 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean, Refreshing and Good Service Located in downtown Sarasota in a nice area that has a lot to offer. Refreshing design and would like to visit again in the next few month. June 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exceptional Stay Thanks to Sandra, Mary, and Micheal As a Holiday GOLD member I have the opportunity to stay at many great locations and would rank this stay as one of my "very best". It was the exceptional friendliness and customer service of Sandra and Mary assisting with recommendations for travel to local beaches and restaurants. Micheal's prompt escorting and pleasant personality was assuring that we could rely on him for our travel. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay June 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Staff The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. A member was done with her shift but still got us cups of ice and water because we were so hot!! June 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Very nice hotel Will stay there every time I'm in Sarasota. The staff was friendly and helpfull. The whole place was clean and looked inviting. June 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by private boutique hotel for fun or business The Hotel Indigo is private and located in a most desirable area of Sarasota. Simple to get to destinations around the area of Sarasota. The bar area and CHEF is outstanding. Perfect for privacy or meeting people in a quaint setting. June 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A wonderful hotel Lovely property. Easy parking. Great location. We stayed in a king suite. Great decor. Aveda amenities is a nice touch. Better than typical refrigerator in room. Not dark enough for me, but a hotel room rarely is. Pleasant common areas. Live music in the lobby bar. Excellent bar. Fabulous food. Nice assortment of snacks available around the clock for reasonable price. The staff was professional, helpful and very friendly. Nice fitness center. Cozy outdoor area with hot and cold tubs that are available for use late night. As long as you are quiet you can enjoy this cute outside area after hours. A great hotel for a romantic couple stay or relaxing for singles. I suppose it is okay for families, but I say leave the kiddies at home! June 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel, Great Service, Horrible Bed I loved this hotel, however my only compliant was the bed and the french fries with my dinner. The bed was noisy, uncomfortable and I woke up with my arms asleep. Everything else was great. The rooms were clean and modern. The staff was great!, even the food in the restaurant was delicious. I only wished they made fresh french fries. They had freezer burn and you could tell. However the Crab and steak sandwiches were yummy! They also had a really good selection of beer and wine. For a hotel restaurant, it was pretty darn good! June 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gem of a Hotel Fabulous Hotel....so glad that I chose it! It had everything that one could ask for....nice rooms, restaurant, bar, friendly employees, great location, small pool and exercise room, business center and free convenient underground parking!!!! June 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Place to Stay Hotel lobby very attractive, guest rooms were clean and comfortable. Hotel bar only serves beer and wine, cocktails would have been nice, but understand need for liquor license. Breakfast buffet was good. Hotel exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend. June 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by exceptional service only thing I would recommend is a liquid shower gel. The bar was adequate but I prfer a gel. May 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Honest, Helpful, and Comfortable! I loved this hotel. They were able to accommodate me in every way possible. I would like to specifically mention the amazing customer service I received from Melody in customer service! I made the mistake of losing a small bag that contained some jewelry and I called up customer service and asked if they found anything in the room 3 days after I stayed there. They informed me that nothing was turned in from that room but Melody went so far as to personally check the lost and found and see if anything matching my bag was turned in. She was able to track it down and shipped it to me via UPS! I was amazed at the amazing level of customer service. I though for sure that the bag was gone but she saved the day. Thank you Melody and thank you everyone at the Indigo for an excellent stay. May 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient While the hotel was convenient, as it is pet friendly, it certainly did not make us feel all that welcome. For example, one of its many policies regarding pets is that they cannot be taken near the restaurant; however, to get to our room we had to walk through the restaurant. Not a comfortable feeling. The hotel charged $100 for our 13 pound dog---a bit pricey given all the rules about pets. Overall, the hotel is conveniently located. But, when it comes to pets they are not too friendly. May 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Favourite All that we needed for a very pleasant stay-good service and facilities, location was one that was easy to walk, ride or drive to places, hotel and room decor was attractive, cheerful and reflected a feel of Florida -Liked the place so much we came back for a second stay a few days later. April 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Superior Service This is a great place if you need to be near the ocean in Sarasota but do not want to be on a key. It is easy walking distance to interesting shops and wonderful restaurants. The service level was exemplary. April 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My guests at the Indigo I put up several family members at the Hotel Indigo this winter. They were all favorably impressed with the decor and appointments in the rooms/suites and in the lobby. I have some future bookings pending. Very nice to have a lovely hotel like this in Sarasota. April 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice experience! Hotel Indigo was such a nice surprise! Small, classy, intimate, reasonable.....all the amenities you could need! We will definitely return when staying in Sarasota again. April 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Home away from Home In my years of business travel, I have very rarely taken the time to actually comment on my hotel accommodations. I must say that the Hotel Indigo is worthy of a 5 star rating. Not only was the staff incredibly gracious and friendly, my room and the entire footprint was immaculate. I would recommend the Indigo Hotel to all of my business colleagues, personal friends and family. April 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wedding Party Guests I helped coordinate rooms for a number of family members who came in from around the country. From setting up the initial room hold agreement through check-in, the term of our stay, and check-out this hotel and its staff was excellent. Thanks, Sarasota team, for making our (albeit short) stay, so enjoyable. Since you are so close, expect to see me and my wife for a get-away weekend! March 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cheerful decor, nice staff, convenient location. Attended a local wedding and spent the weekend at Indigo. All expectations were met and exceeded. Great property! March 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by our recent stay only complain was the pillows are awful, very uncomfortable. March 24, 2014
