Never been to Sarasota before this visit and stayed at this property for a babymoon. Was a beautiful property and room with a gorgeous view. One downside was that we expected more amenities at the hotel but maybe we just didn't see them. The lobby is small and leads to the pool/beach. Didn't see much else there other than a gift shop and a restaurant. Overall beautiful property and nice stay. The gentleman that checked us in was very nice and accommodating. The others seemed a bit snooty and weren't very friendly which we found odd given the pricy rates at this hotel. We had a great time regardless so again that didn't matter in our case. From a vacation point of views, more relaxed and upscale feel in Sarasota than ST Pete/Clearwater.
