Nice hotel in good location

Awesome property

Room was too dark, not enough lighting. Shower was below average, water spilled out of the shower and all over the toilet area and was soaked most of the stay. No barrier to keep water in the shower. Hotel was clean, great location. Pool area was nice.

Dry little amenities, cost too high for everything. Hot water iffy at times, hard to find open and closing of breakfast hours. For what you are charged I could have stayed somewhere else that had an in room coffee pot and refrigerator that would work and a free breakfast. Very disappointed.

Staff was friendly. Hotel didn’t use COVID as an excuse to scale back services; the lobby bar was open as well as the pool bar.

Great location! It was in walking distance of a lot of shops and restaurants.

Modern fun atmosphere. Rooftop pool. Large gym.

All around great property!

Great staff! Jacob in Valet was very accommodating!

I felt the location of this property is excellent, especially for the price. It is near lots of restaurants, bars and shopping, and short drive to Siesta Key and St. Armands Circle. The room is simple, but worked nicely for us and the bed was really comfortable. Didn't spend any time at the pool, but it was beautiful. The only parking option is valet, which doesn't really make sense to me during covid but Florida has very little restrictions. Overall would return and recommend.

Very hip and young vibe. Friendly staff. Easy Lyft pickup and drop offs.

Liked: bed, bar, staff Didnt like so much: decor, water

Where should I start? They charged my card for 2 rooms before I even checked in...Then they blamed it on Orbitz...Claiming I should never use a thirrd party...Then they lied about crediting my account...I'm considering legal action for damages as they are so arrogant and totally unconcerned about their customer...The general mgr was horrific as he had no concern and they kept blaming orbitz...
