We recently spent two night at the Hyatt Sarasota. The location is great and convenient to the city center. The room layout was fairly typical with the addtion of a glass enclosed "bump out" that functioned as a seating area as our room did not have a balcony. I would opt for the balcony in the future. The bed and pillows were great. Linens were not much. Very small bath towels and thin hand towels and wash cloths. They need to be updated! There is a large pool area complete with a waterfall. Our only objection was the pool side music was so loud and "upbeat" that it was hard to relax. I realize music selection is difficult as people have many different preferences, but this was too much! There is a small fridge which came in handy. One negative is the lack of storage space for folded clothes so we had to live out of our suitcases. Our traveling companions had a horrible time getting Wifi and there is a charge once you get on. This was our first trip to Sarasota so I would explore other hotels if I returned. Overall for the price it was a good value for a day or two , but for an extended stay I would look somewhere else.
