10/10 Exceptional

Great Hotel, Great Value
Love staying at this hotel. We discovered it 2 years ago and we love going as a family at least once a year. The art gallery and art spread throughout the hotel make it a unique place to stay. The rooftop pool and bar provide a wonderful outdoor experience. On our trip we were also greeted by a performer playing the piano in the lobby - nice touch. The rooms don't have bathtubs which makes it a challenge if you have little ones like us but we work around that. A great hotel at a great value.

Artsy and great atmosphere!
Loveeeee the artwork!! Great hotel. Walkway connected to the parking garage, cute coffee shop located next door and friendly staff. When I asked for late checkout, the front desk attendant made it super easy!! Would recommend to everyone looking for a modern, artsy hotel.

Great place to stay
The level of friendliness and professionalism was refreshing. The valets, the front desk agents, the servers and bartenders were all very helpful and engaging. Clean room, good food, and great pool were the highlights. Our new hotel in Sarasota.

Nice hotel, great location
The hotel is lovely and filled with amazing art. It is well located and the rooms spacious. There were two external events whilst there that distracted a little from our stay. On the Friday there was a PAWS event on. Whilst I support the charitable even it was very noisy and made the pool and bar area unbearable, all residents packed up and left. You pay a destination fee which covers shuttle and bike hire however despite trying we got neither, they did waive our fee. The lobby bar was good but you had to wear a coat as the ac was so cold. We enjoyed our stay but the overall experience could have been better for the price which you have to add $60 per night on for parking and fees.

2/10 Poor

No water
After we checked in they told us the water would be shut off at 11pm thru to 6am, we felt that was not too bad. The water only came back at 9:30am, I had a Dr appointment at 7:40, couldn’t wash. Why would they even open the hotel for guests if they don’t have water? I asked for the night at no charge, they said no and only comped the valet parking. I will never stay there again!!!

8/10 Very Good

One of the reasons we choose this hotel was the rooftop pool. I was trying to relax and read by the pool their was a large group in the back corner and it appeared rented the last cabana. The group was very loud distributive walking through the pool area back and forth to the bar. The girls in their 20s were drinks swearing spilling their drinks while stumbling when they walking back and forth. The group kept getting larger. Is this public area I would of thought only for hotel guests. The bartenders were coming over and seemed very familiar with them.
