We have been staying at the Hampton Inn & Suites for about 3 years around the Christmas holidays. We stay there for about 30 days at a
time, during that time of year. The people that work there are so warm
and accomodating. They will help you in any manner that they can. They have a van that will take you to most places in the area and pick you up when you are done. The location is outstanding, it is just outside of the Sarasota airport. The only bad thing is that with their complete breakfast bar, they don't have any sugar free cereal (which I often find this problem at other hotels). Other than that, it is an outstanding experience. I even get hugs when I leave. Try it, you'll like it!
