    The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota
    Sarasota, FL
    5.0-star Hotel Class
    Lovers of the Ritz-Carlton brand are very much impressed by the Sarasota, Florida, version. Even though they've come to expect top-notch service, plush rooms and classy ambiance from these properties, travelers still can't stop gushing over the excellent customer service and the close attention to detail. At this Marriott-affiliated property, accommodations impress with amenities like private balconies, goose-down pillows and 55-inch flat-screen TVs. The resort also boasts an 18-hole, Tom Fazio-designed golf course (15 miles off-site). For non-golfers, The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota provides tennis courts; but if you'd rather kick back and relax, you'll also find a pool, a spa and a beach club. (The property's $37 daily resort fee covers the 3-mile shuttle ride to the beach.) At the end of the day, recent travelers said a meal at Jack Dusty, the resort's popular seafood restaurant, is a must. You'll find The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota on Ritz-Carlton Drive alongside Sarasota Bay. Plus, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points by staying here.

    Located off the coast of Sarasota, Florida, on a narrow strip of land sandwiched between Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, toasty Longboat Key is often thought of as a wintertime hideaway. And snowbirds aren't the only ones who can appreciate the appeal of the area's Resort at Longboat Key Club. The gigantic property boasts a private cream-colored shore, 45 holes of golf, 20 Har-Tru tennis courts, a spa and a variety of other ways to indulge. Those who vacationed here recently were more than impressed with the friendly and efficient staff. Past guests also raved about the abundance of luxurious amenities. (But remember, two restaurants, the main pool, the lobby and select guest room buildings are undergoing renovations until early 2020.) Guest rooms and suites that are currently available to stay in are dressed in cream and blue hues and come with top-notch amenities like 42-inch flat-screen TVs, Bose Wave radios, minibars and furnished private balconies that overlook the beach, lagoon or golf courses. Keep in mind, a $24 to $36 daily resort fee, which covers additional conveniences like in-room Wi-Fi access, area shuttle service and self-parking, applies. The exact fee varies depending on the accommodation chosen.

    Sarasota, FL
    • Free WiFi

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    Guests say the location alone is worth booking a stay with this hotel. The Westin Sarasota is blessed with a truly incredible setting, standing tall in the Bayfront region of downtown Sarasota. So not only are you close to the water, but you are also a short drive away from points of interest, including the beaches of Lido Key and Siesta Key. Accommodations here offer city, partial bay or marina views from floor-to-ceiling windows or balconies, as well as other comforts including pillow-top mattresses, coffee and tea making facilities, minifridges, 49-inch flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access (for a fee). Outside the rooms, lodgers will find a gym that offers complimentary fitness classes to guests, a spa with an in-house salon, a restaurant and a rooftop pool and bar area, the latter of which was a favorite among several recent travelers. For an unforgettable experience, make sure to stick around the pool area during sunset for remarkable views of Sarasota's coastline. In addition to a knockout location, many guests attribute their memorable stays to the warm, fun and friendly staff, especially those working at the front desk and the rooftop bar. Keep in mind, the hotel charges a $22 daily destination fee. And since Westin is part of the Marriott family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and redeem points here.

    Featuring a bright color scheme, inspired by fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer, the Hyatt Regency Sarasota impresses visitors with its inviting setting and stunning views of the property's private marina and Sarasota Bay. Pool chaises and umbrellas, plus the lobby and room accent pillows are vibrant pinks and light greens.

However, some past guests noted high prices at both eateries. Another bonus for Hyatt loyalty program members: Participants can use or earn points here to enjoy complimentary perks.
