A beautiful boutique hotel, with a well laid out and beautifully landscaped pool area (plus hot tub, private cabanas and plunge pool), bar, restaurant (great food) and lovely rooms, with super comfortable Sealy mattresses. A must stay in Sarasota. But what further distinguishes The Modern is the courteous staff, from Crystal (GM) to Kayla to Israel to Zamira to Stephanie, as well as Steven at the bar. Time and again they offer to help whether it be a drink or bite to eat by the pool, small request, recommendation or just a friendly smile and hello. From the beginning, the staff has a way of making you feel right at home while enjoying the gorgeous hotel with its true Florida feel. They lift this hotel from beautiful to elite, in a category of its own.

The rooms are well made. You don't hear the neighbors. The bathrooms are side rooms in themselves, with high-quality towels, soaps, and good pressure in the shower. Wide hallways, nice gym with Peloton bikes and weights, and poolside bar with TVs, so you can eat/drink outside by the pool all day. There are a number of private areas by the pool so you can enjoy the sun, sit in the shade, or have a quiet place to yourself. I have recommended this hotel to numerous friends and family, because it simply cannot be topped in the area. It ranks among the top three places I've ever stayed. Thank you to the wonderful staff for making such a difference.

I came to Sarasota with my boyfriend to celebrate my Birthday and we stayed at The Sarasota Modern which is the most beautifully aesthetically pleasing hotel near the water! The pool is my favorite part of the hotel as it is very big and great for swimming! The pool bar is open for drinks and light snacks which makes the experience even better. There’s also a jacuzzi, private cabanas and a smaller pool. There’s a beautiful seating area and everything looks new and modern.

With your stay will get unlimited access to bike rentals, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, ping pong, corn hole and jenga. If you don’t want to leave the hotel you really don’t have to, there’s something for everyone here!

There’s Friday Yoga on the pool deck and a welcome drink when you arrive. I love that we are in the Downtown area but also just a few minutes away from the beach!

For parking there is valet who will bring your car to the front 24/7 so you never have to worry.

Our hotel room is a nice minimalist white room with great lighting, it has a fridge, huge shower, his and hers sink and a large private balcony that has a beautiful porcelain tub with a shower head and all! It doesn’t get any better than that! I already can’t wait to come back!

After searching various places to stay on the west coast of Florida we chose to celebrate my girlfriend's 31st birthday at The Sarasota Modern. It's located in the heart of everything we wanted to see and visit, literally walking distance to so many things!

When we got here we pulled up to the front and valet patiently helped us with our bags and took our car to the lot behind the hotel for easy access to whenever we wanted to go out again it was at our disposal 24/7. The check in was quick and we even got a complimentary sangria for each of us to get our weekend started right! The aesthetic is totally modern without being too minimalist, there's great photo ops everywhere and antibacterial around every corner. The big roof deck on the 5th floor which is the floor where we stayed at is perfect for some morning yoga that they also happen to offer Friday mornings.

The room was perfect it has big high ceilings and all white walls with a huge comfy bed lit by the light coming in from the glass sliding doors that lead to a very sexy balcony which has a private outdoor bathtub with a shower head above it, this will be perfect for some pictures with my new camera and my model guest. There's also a head to toe mirror a huge walk in shower for two to comfortably shower together and anything else you may want to do...Off to the pool area where we took a bunch of great pictures after a few laps in the pool as a swimmer I appreciate a pool large enough to swim. There's also private cabanas and a large Jacuzzi and a kids pool. If you want to wind down the pool side bar also opens at noon which I'll be enjoying later this evening with the sunset. I'll update with more once we get back from our bike tour of the area which by the way are complimentary!

During C-19 they furloughed 95% of the staff and unfortunately the housekeeping staff is unable to manage the cleaning of hotel it is downright dirty, water smells of sulfur, pool is so gross it’s not even being cleaned. Being a Marriott Bonvoy Member my profile was completely dismissed and I even called the day before to ensure my requests would not be a problem per Kaitlyn they were not.

Arrived at 07:30pm Saturday was assigned the complete opposite of what was discussed when I asked Kaitlyn if room 109 faces the street she reassured me it does not well the entire property faces the street I had drunk guests knocking on the window throughout the night, bed has a huge body hole from the amount of people sleeping in that 1 spot room was dirty; glitter in all the drawers, soda on top of the furniture hairs all over the bathroom I was told there was no other rooms PERIOD.

Not true after 2 nights of drunken loud thumping music sleepless nights I was moved to another room that is somewhat better. Again they are so poorly understaffed cleaning staff can barely keep up. Had no bathroom amenities floors somewhat clean just happy it’s a normal room and quiet.

What my biggest problem is why would you 1) oversell the hotel during Covid, 2) sell day passes for the pool during Covid, and not have 3) any control cleaning in place at the pool during Covid?

Sarasota Modern, Tribute Portfolio under Marriott Bonvoy this is very DISAPPOINTING

I am a loyal Lifetime Elite Titanium Member of the Marriott brand with nearly 2100 room nights over the last 20 years. To this point, I have never had such a disrespectful and rude experience entering a Marriott property. Several weeks prior, I booked a three-night Valentine’s weekend stay at the Modern Hotel in Downtown Sarasota starting Friday night 2/12/2021 and requested on the website, an upgrade through my reward night benefits. We arrived late to the hotel and when we asked about the requested upgrade, the female person checking us in, rudely said she didn’t have anything for us, so we accepted and went to our room. When we arrived at the room, we noticed we were given a less desirable accessible room with two double beds instead of the king bed detailed on my profile. This was not acceptable to me, so I returned to the front desk and requested a change of rooms, which was denied. I then requested to speak to the manager, at which point I was told there was no one to speak to and that she was in charge. I told her I would need to check out in the morning and started walking to the elevators. At this point, she said, “If you’re not happy with the room, I can check you out now.” At this point, it was obvious that she could care less about my status or satisfaction. This person then yelled out to me to put my mask over my nose, and got up from her chair and ran up to me at the elevator, pointing her finger in my face and said it was hotel policy to have the mask over my nose. She raised her voice and said if I didn’t do it, I would need to leave the hotel. As I entered the elevator (by myself) with my mask under my nose and she then told me I had 15 minutes to leave the hotel. When I got to the room, I told my wife we were leaving, and we exited the hotel immediately.

We were then left in a bind at 11pm on a holiday weekend and ended up having to stay in three different hotels that weekend. In fact, one night everything in Sarasota was sold out so we had to stay overnight in Tampa (60 miles away) on 2/13/2021. Although I realize the Modern Hotel is an autograph collection series, I expect the same standards and courtesy that I would receive in any other branded Marriott Hotel. Obviously, the Modern Hotel and Marriott has done a poor job with training their frontline staff here. Although I don’t wish anyone to be fired, I expect this employee to be disciplined, retrained, and monitored before any other additional customers interact with her. We stayed at the Sarasota Westin two nights later and received outstanding service from each employee interaction from the valet to housekeeping. In my opinion, the Marriott brand has been successful in retaining loyal customers such as myself because of the consistency with quality and service that we expect. Although I will never stay at this hotel again, I will not detract me from my loyalty to overall.

Hello,

My partner and I booked this location as somewhat of a staycation and all the amenities included, such as the on-site restaurant. Prior to check in we called several times to confirm parking, restaurant hours, and check-in time to no avail, after calling five times there was no answer. We arrive and the restaurant is closed. We continue to our room and the sanitation of the room was very poor; there was hair everywhere, on the sofa, on the floor near our bed and in the bathroom on the toilet, we notified the front desk immediately and we were moved to another room. The next morning a random man who happened to be the Janitor barged into the room when we were unclothed after us telling him not to come in multiple times and screaming. The Do Not Disturb sign was also on the door. We informed the front desk and the Manager told us that she would call back immediately, we never received a phone call. The next morning we went out for brunch and came back to an unidentifiable yellow liquid outside of our room resembling urine, we were told it was sanitizer; it was not sanitizer, after smelling it, it was indeed urine. On top of that our room keys weren't working properly the entire time and there wasn't a microwave in the room or one we could use on the premises. When we notified the front desk and the Manager about our unpleasant and horrific stay we were met with defense, negative attitudes and just an overall lack of empathy. We ended up cutting our vacation short and checking out after the series of unfortunate events. This is by far the worst hotel stay I've ever had in my life. I do not recommend.

Dear Kiearafaye, There is no excuse for the shortcomings that you experienced. Although we failed to demonstrate differently, your experience does not, in any way, represent the level of service we are capable of providing. I want you to know that incidents such as these are quite rare. It therefore causes me great concern when something like this does happen. If a positive side could be found in this, it is that your input will help us to sharpen our policies and procedures. This will further minimize the possibility of recurrence in the future. Your present feelings are appreciated and I hope that you will not judge us solely on the basis of this particular experience. Thank you once again for taking the time to write about your recent experience.

I'm a lifetime platinum member and have had a lot of experiences in Marriott properties. We booked a first responder rate which we thought was a good deal to get away for a weekend. My significant other works in infectious disease so we were happy they were offering something. The rate included parking, destination fee and a $10 credit to be used at the hotel.

I'll first say, we arrived in the morning and were able to get a room quickly. That was helpful. Valet parking was not available, which I was ok with and was able to park in the lot in back. This however was free for everyone, so it didn't matter I had it in the rate. Also all restaurants and amenities were closed, so I couldn't use the $10 credit for anything. So while I thought I was getting a deal, it wasn't much of one.

Parking ended up being a complete disaster and put us on edge each night. The lot is set up for valet parking, but no signage meant people would block each other in and reduced 1/3 the spaces. We couldn't get a spot one night and were told to find parking somewhere on the street. We eventually found a spot down the street and had to walk. We then watched out our window the cars trying to find or squeeze into spaces. I feel bad for the people that got boxed in.

The room was not the cleanest. Stains on the couch. We had some substance on the bed sheet that looked like burned gum. We noticed it when getting into bed and called for a new sheet. It took about an hour to get one to us which is not great when you are ready to go to sleep.

There was almost no water pressure in the shower.

Location was in a pretty good spot, but if you want to drive somewhere, losing a parking spot is a real risk.

I would not stay here again if visiting the city. I just didn't get a feeling like people cared and I expected a lot more.

Stayed here for a girls trip and really enjoyed it. My room was a loft king so it had very high ceilings and a little patio area outside the front door and was very close to the pool/hot tub. The room was very clean and had plenty of room. The bed was very comfortable. Ate one meal here and it was very good and the service was friendly. The bar service at the pool was great and the bartender was really nice. This place has an excellent pool, spa and pool area. We also were lucky enough to have a free yoga class at the pool on Wednesday and very much enjoyed that. The instructor was super nice and it was so nice to be outside practicing yoga. I would return to this hotel just for the pool and the yoga class but everything else was good too. The only reason I did not give 5 stars was because you have to valet your car every time you leave and while this could be a plus, it gets expensive with tips and waiting for your car (they did a good job, it just would be easier to get in and go yourself) and there is a lot of construction going on in the area which you can see and hear at the pool area and traffic was a real mess at times coming and going. The neighborhood seemed nice though and we went out walking and found a very nice place to eat a few blocks away. overall this is a really nice place to stay and I would like to return and would highly recommend.

Checked in NYE 2019 with my husband and 6 month old baby. The room reeked of dog, had dog food crumbs on the floor, with dirty sheets - mascara on the sheets. I asked for a room change and the second room smelled equally bad - like a kennel. Asked to speak with a manager but no one came. Apparently the managers were all busy cleaning rooms on NYE. Rooms were $500/night on NYE btw. We used 40K points/night

3 hours later, a sour faced rep by the name of Yana approaches me in the lobby and has the unchecked temerity to tell me 'there's nothing I can do'. When did vacuuming and clean sheets become a lofty request for a hotel room???

We are Titanium Elite members with Marriott and couldn't believe the piss poor service. This hotel is a joke. We first stayed there NYE 2018 when it was newly opened. Service was mediocre but at least it was clean. A year later, it's apparent this particular hotel is poorly managed and honestly a joke and a disgrace to the Marriott/Sheraton brand.

Do yourself a favor - pick Art Ovation instead. I really wanted this hotel to be my favorite because the pool is lovely but cleanliness trumps ALL with hotels. We called Marriott Bonvoy to escalate the matter around 8pm and the rep couldn't believe how rude the staff were to her, lending credence to our complaint.

We checked out and couldn't get another hotel room anywhere in town. I'm absolutely furious at this hotel and their management because they clearly couldn't handle the NYE demand and ruined our plans.

We are frequent Travelers and we just finished a two-night stay at the hotel and found it to be a wonderful experience. The front desk staff was exceptional. The developers have thought of a number of very thoughtful additions including quiet close drawers and cabinets, a motion detector night light for the bathroom, shower faucet handles located on the opposite wall from the shower head so you can adjust the water before stepping into the shower. The very plush down comforter is not put into a large pillow case has some hotels do. This allows guests to make an easy choice between using the comforter or just a sheet. All in all, an excellent experience.
