Homewood Suites by Hilton Sarasota
Lovely courtyard with pool - Part 2 of review
We enjoyed our visit here at the Homewood Suites. Our room looked over the courtyard which has a lovely pool and hot tub. Ask for a room that overlooks the courtyard. There is good parking here too.
Unique Quality: The layout of the room was very good - lots of open spaces with two phones and a nice kitchenette. The location is great also for a good home base for day trips.
We used Hilton Points for the more expensive days and paid for the last day which was about $125 for the night. Evening meals are included Monday through Thursday and they were good!
Breakfasts were abundant and ready on time.
Good location and reasonable price.
We spent three nights here during our visit to Sarasota. We got there the first night just in time to eat the evening buffet dinner which closes at 7 PM. This place has a very nice place to gather socially and for the meals they offer which is breakfast every morning and dinner Monday through Thursday.
All rooms have a kitchenette which has a dishwasher, a refrigerator and a microwave. This area is quite roomy and moves easily into the living area. The bathroom has a large sink and granite counter top open and outside the shower/tub and toilet area. I prefer this arrangement.
There were a few issues but the management had employees on it immediately and everything was resolved. There appeared to be many couples and people staying there for several weeks as a winter get away.
Unique Quality: This Homewood Suites has a lovely area for the heated pool and hot tub. The weather was cool and rainy but the pool was warm and comfy. The hot tub was great. The dining area is large and very attractive with plenty of room for eating and later for playing games, cards, and socializing. The room we stayed in was a rather different layout and worked well. The closets were on the wall at the end of the bed and therefore we were able to use the sliding doors to get in and out of and not get in each other's way. The room was clean and all the lights worked. There were plenty of electrical outlets. The towels were soft and fluffy and in good condition. Plenty of shampoo, conditioner and lotion and bar soap. Enjoyed the USA Today every morning and we especially enjoyed the view of the pool area from our room.
Showers were always hot and plenty of water pressure. The kitchen area was very clean; they even provided a bag of popcorn and first night's water.
Evening meals were great. The first night we had pulled pork sandwiches and sweet potato fries with a salad bar and the second night we had buffalo wings with carrots and celery with ranch dressing and hot potato soup. Wine and beer was also offered every evening. All the food was very tasty and attractively presented. Breakfast was plentiful with hot waffles, delicious eggs, sausages and bacon, pastries, bagels, and toast. Juice was provided along with plenty of coffee and flavored creamers. Cold and hot cereals were out each morning.
Jacquie Blom did a wonderful job taking care of us.
