Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Platinum Member Nice hotel, good food and friendly staff.
The rooms are big and they always upgrade my room. The hotel is kept in good conditions and the staff is very friendly. The bartenders are very welcoming and always remember your name. The new menu is great! You need to try the Tuna. This is my hotel of choice when I’m in the Sarasota area on business.

This was the 2nd. time I stayed at this Holiday Inn. Hotel lobby is very nice. This time our breakfast was included. Staff members kept bringing out hot food when supplies got low. The front desk was very attentive to directions or any questions we had. The noise level was very reasonable for a hotel that was sold out.

When I first saw this hotel while driving up the road it was really out of the way. The outside of the hotel looked good, there just isn't any other buildings around it.
When I checked in the lobby was nice and big, and adjoining the lobby was a nice bar and restaurant.
Outside the restaurant was a very nice seating area with a fire pit too. The ambiance was very impressive. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

We fell in love with these rooms and the atrium. After a late night, the beds were very comfortable , everything was peaceful and great.

The hotel was new, surprisingly attractive, much nicer than any Holiday Inn we've stayed at. Our room was clean, comfortable and attractive. Breakfast was typical fare but there were plenty of choices. The staff was friendly and attentive, though obviously new.
Our only complaint was that we asked for an accessible bathroom and were assigned one based on a reference book available to the hotel staff. However, when we went to our room at midnight we discovered the bathroom was not accessible save for a single handrail in the shower. It was too late for us to change rooms. We mentioned the problem when we checked out; the staff crossed the room off the accessible list and promised to check to see if other so-called accessible rooms were, in fact, accessible.
The hotel is convenient to the airport but a tad off the beaten track for our purposes .As a one-time frequent business traveler, I would highly recommend it for business people.

I've stayed at many IHG hotels in various locations and this one is my favorite to date. It was my second time staying here and I looked forward to coming back.
The hotel interior has a unique and cool vibe walking in (visible waterfall over glass in the elevator is great!). I also enjoyed a good meal (bacon wrapped scallops - yum!) in the bar area where I found a lot of repeat patrons who obviously enjoy staying here as much as I do. We all had a good time talking to one another and the bartender was a lot of fun as well.
The outdoor area with couches and firepit is by far one of the best ever. Very tropical feel and beautiful. You can truly relax here and have a great time.Thanks to the IHG staff at this hotel for making my stay wonderful!
