Nice, place. The rooms are spotless, the breakfast was excellent and the employees are top notch. There is only one negative about this place and they are fixing it very soon.
We stayed there for 2 nights at $190 per night, which for Sarasota is a DEAL! My only complaint is the mattress', they are really, really firm. (I have a bad back) When we spoke to one of the managers we were told they have ordered mattress covers which will make the mattresses more comfortable and they have "foam egg cartons" that can be put on the beds to help. You gotta love a place that listens to their customers and takes action to fix a problem.
Everything else about this place is great. The only reason not to stay here is if you want to walk to the beach. You can drive right across the bridge to St Armand's Circle and Lido Beach is 5 minutes away.
We have stayed in several places in Sarasota and this is one of the top 2!
