The Sarasota Modern, which opened in December 2018, is located in the heart of the city’s Rosemary District, a trendy, artsy and walkable area in downtown Sarasota.

The 89-room hotel features a lushly landscaped deck with two pools, a hot tub, private cabanas, a juice bar and a restaurant and bar called Rudolph’s, which features fresh, local cuisine. Rudolph’s executive chef is Jennifer Salhoff, a finalist on Gordon Ramsey’s “Hell’s Kitchen” TV show. There is also a Volkswagen microbus named Reggie that shuttles guests to Lido Key Beach located 3 miles away. 

Guests can unwind in oversized modernist-style rooms with 50-inch flat screen TVs, luxury bath amenities, glass walk-in rainfall showers and clawfoot tubs.

Local attractions include Ringling Museum of Art, Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, Sarasota Opera House, Sarasota Orchestra and Sarasota Jungle Gardens. Some of the best beaches on Florida's Gulf Coast are within 10 miles, including Lido Key Beach, Siesta Key Beach and Turtle Beach, where visitors can snorkel or go boating. Several botanical gardens, nature preserves, bike trails and golf courses are also located nearby.

Beautiful new clean hotel in a great location

Great staff, decor and location. Loved the pool area. No food choices for children in restaurant, need more lighting in bathroom, limited free coffee in mornings but was not very hot. Pillows too soft, would have preferred a lounging chair in the room and larger counter space in bathroom.

The property was new and clean.

Staff was not helpful upon check in. We arrived just after 10pm— bar and pool both closed. Had to hunt for ice to make a drink from the minibar. We were told the second day of our stay was the Grand Opening celebration and “the owners will all be here, you are welcome to join”. The staff seemed to be distracted with preparing for the party. The hotel was swarming with people the next morning preparing for the Grand Opening. Not relaxing at ALL. We left a day early. Overall, we did not feel welcomed. The hotel does not seem like it’s ready for guests. Not family friendly. Really, not friendly at all.

Nice pool area with ping pong tables. Easy walk to local restaurants, downtown Sarasota, and 3 miles to Lido Beach.
Other Comments
Check in staff was not very friendly, and rooms lack seating space. No fitness center on site, and valet parking should be optional as the lot is directly behind the hotel. Room size was small for a standard king, with no balcony access. It’s a nice boutique hotel, but would rather pay a little more to stay directly on the bay front with more amenities.

Hot tub, and bi-level queen beds.

It would be nice if you could quickly check in to the hotel without having to valet park. This was a surprise.
