Hotel is very nice and perfectly located in downtown Sarasota. The pool is on the roof and there is a rooftop bar with plenty of seating for a night out with the girls or just to watch the sunset. Definitely recommend!

No, but there is a rooftop bar and pool with great views of the city, Sarasota Bay and beyond. Private cabanas can be reserved. The hotel is steps from Main Street, chock full of outstanding restaurants, and across the street from the Sarasota Opera House and the Studio Theatre.

"We had high city view room, it had a great view on the 7th floor."
"I always ask for a room away from the elevators and ice machine."
"Higher up and away from elevators are quieter"
"If you want a quiet floor do not get close to the rooftop parties, stay in the lower levels. The best is 3rd floor, close to the gym."
"Higher floor overlooking the bay was great."
