    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.

    Hotel Indigo Sarasota
    Sarasota, FL
    • Free WiFi

    3.5-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    Hotel Indigo Sarasota is located in the Rosemary District of Sarasota, Florida. All of the guest rooms and suites come with coffee makers, flat-screen TVs with DVD players, desks, windows that open and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Recent guests raved about the spacious guest rooms, the lovely decor found in-room and throughout the hotel and the personable customer service. The H2O Bistro serves American cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and there is also a 24-hour grab-and-go section with snacks and beverages. Other on-site amenities and services offered at this pet-friendly hotel include a 24-hour fitness studio, a business center, hot and cold wading pools and self-parking (though it costs extra). Guests should note that they will likely need a car to get around, as popular local attractions – like Lido Key Beach – are about 3 miles from the hotel. Since this hotel has ties to the InterContinental Hotels Group, that means IHG Rewards Club members can accrue and redeem points by choosing to stay here.

    Hyatt Regency Sarasota
    Sarasota, FL
    • Free WiFi

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    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. The rooms are fun and flashy, too, though not as much as the common spaces; accommodations offer Portico bath amenities, 47-inch flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi access. Recent guests especially praise the ambient pool area and stylish guest rooms. To enhance your stay, past travelers suggest requesting a room on a higher floor for optimal views. When you're ready to eat, you'll have your pick of Currents Restaurant, a sophisticated restaurant that dishes up fresh seafood entrees with a side of harbor views, or the Hurricane Hut, which offers poolside eats. 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.
