no vent fan in bathroom.
Hotel employee was outstanding in her professionality!
The only thing I did not like was my short stay!! I didn't want to leave.
No minifridge in the hotel room to store drinks or food. Had to bring cooler from car to use in the room. The room was quite pricey for the accomodations, but that comes with demand.
Best Hampton I have stayed in. Staff on the ball. Manager was on top of any requests. A great experience.
the professional and friendly staff
Construction. There were nails exposed from a speed bump.
This hotel is very new and is beautifully landscaped. The inside decor is lovely, very clean and well maintained. Our room was so clean it almost squeaked. The staff had left a post it note that not only were the sheets clean for our arrival but also the duvet cover. I wish more hotels would do this. The breakfast was one of the best that I have ever had at a hotel. They served scrambled eggs with ham & cheese, bacon, hash browns, blueberry waffles, homemade oatmeal (better than mine), assorted muffins, cereals, bagels, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, yogurt and juices. This will definitely be our place to go whenever we are in Sarasota.
I usually like 4 to 5 star hotels and was reluctant to stay at the Hampton which had been recommended. However I was pleasantly surprised as this was the best hampton I have ever seen or stayed at. It was clean, modern, easy to check in and out and located near the highway and shops. A bit far from downtown and beach area, located more east but good value. Access to hotel a bit convoluted, its in the back of a shopping mall but signage is good. Breakfast was nice. Concessions near desk a bit pricey. Thumbs up!
It is located within a shopping plaza with restaurants, bars and shopping. 20 minute drive to Anna Maria Island and Siesta beach. Perfect location if you are in Sarasota for business and would like to be close from the airport, beach and good restaurants. You MUST visit Anna Maria Island and Siesta Beach
New hotel, room was not available till after 3pm, room was nice, staff pleasant. Going back 9/11
