Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SCKC The best hotel in Sarasota, Hands down!
Every time I visit Sarasota, I stay at the Indigo. It is a great little boutique hotel with a prime location to downtown Sarasota. I can walk to the Van Wezel to catch a show or walk downtown to grab a bite to eat in one of Sarasota's great restaurants or visit the farmers market that occurs every weekend.
It isn't all about just leaving the hotel, spending a lazy morning in the hotel isn't too bad either. The rooms are all decorated with beach theme and colors, but still feel upscale (not pretentious) with wood floors and a really nice, big and clean bathroom/shower and a great bed. The spacious, upscale bathrooms are a common theme among the Indigo chain so you know you what you are getting if you choose to stay with the chain.
The housekeeping staff even does cute things on the weekends like create towel animals or turn the comforter on the bed into a bow tie. It's the little things that help differentiate this hotel from its competitors. On and they only use Aveda products, so don't worry about cheap shampoo or conditioner.
The highlight of the hotel has to be the staff. The folks in the restaurant, at the front desk or cleaning the rooms are all incredibly friendly. I always want to know what is going on downtown and the front desk is able to accommodate - they know all the best and new restaurants, what is playing at the Van Wezel or will clue you in on the sunset drum circle on Sunday nights down on Siesta Key.
If you are fortunate enough to plan a trip to Sarasota, you won't regret resting your head here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by babyboomer Hotel Indigo Sarasota FIRST RATE for Comfort
The staff are so friendly, it is so comfortable to come down in the premium room robe and go to the "wading pools" one hot one cold (they aren't swimming pools, just jacuzzi size), and to grab a cold one at the bar. They have music often in the lobby so check ahead if you thought you were going to have a quiet dinner early in the evening. They are close to town and have incredibly high ceilings in the premium rooms that make it all the more spacious. Showers you could jog in they are so big!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mightychunks Above and beyond: extraordinary in every way
From start to finish, we had a wonderful experience at the Sarasota Hotel Indigo. Although we arrived early and our room was not yet ready, the manager, Sandra, was conscientious and kind about keeping us updated and getting us into our room as quickly as possible.
Superior communication was one hallmark of the staff at this hotel. We also noticed that everyone was friendly and cheerful, happy in his or her work, attentive to detail and thoughtful of our needs at every turn.
For example, when I asked where the nearest playground was located, the young man at the front desk didn't just tell me, he helpfully printed out a map upon which he drew two routes to two different local playgrounds.
As we were preparing for departure, our younger son had an unfortunate slip-and-fall that necessitated a trip to the ER. Everyone was helpful, concerned, and acted quickly.
Erika, Sandra, and Cecelia (sp?) were particularly gracious. My older son still mentions Cecelia fondly and has reminded me a few times that we will hopefully see her again this Christmas.
Our room, a small suite, was extremely clean. The floors were spotless (but slippery). Everything worked beautifully (power outlets, shower, air conditioning, television) which unfortunately cannot be said for every hotel.
Fantastic location: although we had a car, many restaurants and a thriving downtown area are within walking distance. Whole Foods is about half a mile away.
Our family had only ever flown in and out of SRQ. A change of plans allowed us to enjoy a four-day vacation in Sarasota. We look forward to our next opportunity to visit Hotel Indigo.

The ac/heating system is horribly loud. Could not sleep well. For this reason only I would not go back to Indigo.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MangoRocks A Great Time at a Great Hotel
We found the Staff to be very accommodating and professional. The Hotel itself was very nice and uniquely decorated. The room was very nicely decorated and good sized. The shower was awesome! The H20 Restaurant was very nice and provided very good service and nice entertainment on the weekend. We also enjoyed the workout room along with the spa pools. The location of the hotel is very conducive to walking to the wonderful downtown that Sarasota has. We will definitely be coming back for more boutique treatment!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sylvrtong1 Very quiet and comfortable
With a very zen-like ambiance, the Indigo was a delightful respite from the 'typical' chain hotel. The underground parking was a welcome surprise, and the desk staff was outstanding. You truly feel welcomed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JC55 Only one issue
The hotel is comfortable and ideally located for a 15 minute walk into the historic town where there are plenty of restaurants/bars. It is also a pleasant walk to the harbour and sea shore.
Our only issue was a disappointment that we were charged $3.75 for an orange juice which was not included in the buffet rate. Given that my husband did'nt have coffee or tea, we were surprised to be charged for orange juice particularly in Florida the home of oranges!!
