Tribute Portfolio, a brand of Marriott International, opened The Sarasota Modern in downtown Sarasota, Fla., within the epicenter of the city's urban Rosemary District.

The Sarasota Modern was designed in collaboration with Hoyt Architects based in Sarasota; Boston-based architect Stephen Chung; and architects from the Sarasota School of Architecture. The property has European-inspired design details blended with elements of Florida's Gulf Coast.

In total, there are 89 guestrooms with indoor and outdoor living spaces, as well as two aqua pools and a hot spa. Dressed with white walls, natural wood detailing, floor-to-ceiling windows, pops of energetic wallpaper and private outdoor clawfoot tubs, The Sarasota Modern is surrounded by greenery.
