"The location was fabulous. Rooftop pool was awesome. Drinks and food is a bit expensive. Staff and customer service was the best ever in my hotel experiences. John and George, the shuttle drivers, were tops! They provided us with towels, beach chairs, and a cooler with water on ice for our beach trip, as well as informative about the area where we drove around. Not to mention him and the desk receptionist Kayla "Betty Boop" sending us a lovely and unexpected birthday card and surprise dessert! Such an attentive staff at the entrance and with excellent concierge service! Will absolutely be back!"

Overview

Opened in the spring of 2018, Art Ovation Hotel, Autograph Collection is an ideal experience for artists and art lovers alike. Ranked as a "Top 5 Best Hotel in Sarasota" by U.S. News & World Report, it's easy to understand this property's appeal. Guests can take in enriching art exhibitions during their stay and explore the downtown location that is within walking distance of shops, restaurants and additional art galleries.

The creative inspiration doesn't end in the lobby. Guest rooms feature a work space with colored pencils and sketch pads, access to musical instruments and (for bookworms) an in-room reading selection. Floor-to-ceiling windows brighten up the space and showcase views of the city or the bay. While the walk-in showers provide a spacious en-suite experience.

Live music can often be heard from the rooftop pool bar -- a well-known hang out that serves up hand-crafted cocktails and appetizers. Guests looking for a quieter, full-service dining experience can find a table at Overture Restaurant & Gallery Lounge, which offers items like cast iron seared scallops and grilled filet of beef tenderloin.

Had a wonderful time in Sarasota. Michael, John & George, the shuttle drivers, took us to several locations we read about prior to our visit and offered suggestions for others. Ajaz went above and beyond to provide us with an enjoyable stay.

We were very impressed with the beautiful art pieces in the lobby, the overall artsy feel of the hotel and it's excellent location. The front desk service was exceptional, however, the maid service was, shall we say, pathetic. By 5:00 p.m. we still had not received room cleaning service. A maid finally came by the room and seem relieved when we told her to just give us a few towels and forget the service because we were going to be late for a dinner engagement. Housekeeping did call us eventually but, by then, it was way too late. Yes, we definitely would return, but only if we had some assurance our room would be cleaned.

My husband and I needed a getaway and this hotel was not only beautiful but perfect for a romantic getaway. We loved the art gallery, the colors, and our room was 5 star. We enjoyed the rooftop bar/restaurant with the view overlooking the city and water but the wait staff was no where to be found so we left but sure enjoyed the view. With two welcome drinks and great night life with music, etc. we will surely be back.
