Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Blissful beachside locale: Enjoy sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico at this relaxing waterfront hotel. It's close to the sparkling white-sand Lido Key Beach, as well as the vibrant shopping and dining scene in St. Armands Circle.
  • Banquet room with ocean views: The wraparound windows in the Sarasota Room frame a gorgeous coastal backdrop for your reception. You can customize the layout of the room and choose from menus of both local and traditional cuisine to delight your guests.
  • Make a weekend of it: You'll enjoy amenities such as drinks and eats beside the heated pool, as well as a complimentary fitness center and on-site children's activities. And you can dine at the recently renovated rooftop Sand Dollar Restaurant on the seventh floor.
