“Probably the coolest Hotel pool I have ever seen!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Stayed here for a work conference and even though I didn't jump in, the pool with it's cascading waterfall was probably the coolest hotel pool I've seen. It is a fairly large pool and very accommodating for many people.

The hotel itself was on par with most Hyatts, nothing overly fancy. The room was nice and clean as was the bathroom and the rest of the hotel. The conference accommodations were very spacious and the staff seemed to help everything run fairly seamless.

We did take the shuttle to Lido Beach and that was a nice addition to our stay, being able to take a shuttle for free. I must say that Giancarlo(?), the new guy was very cool, he was always upbeat and was more than willing to help.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. Our bayside pool and Hurricane Hut poolside bar are great places to unwind and relax after a long day sightseeing or conference going. We really hope you can come back soon and actually get to dive in next time! Thank you again!

This has to be one of the best hotel properties that I have ever stayed at. The rooms, location and amenities were exceptional. Located in a beautiful area of Sarasota and close to some fine restaurants. The service was impeccable. I can highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: I stayed there on business. The room and service were outstanding

We attended a family wedding at the Hyatt in Sarasota and you could not have asked for more of a grander occasion and setting for our lucky bride and groom. The amenities were fantastic as they offered beach side weddings or smaller venues in one of their select outdoor locations. The ballrooms were well decorated adding a nice touch that was very photo friendly. Can't comment on the wedding tab sticker (or proud Parents sticker-shock) but for what they offer is seems reasonable for the location and accommodations. Our wedding party was thrilled at the results and we could tell. The Hyatt staff were friendly, professional and ensured that the wedding guests and family members were well pampered and taken care of. Parking was free for guests. Overall, the wedding and reception went off without a hitch thanks to the Hyatt staff and wedding planners. Highly recommend this hotel for any special ballroom affair. The Hyatt Management team know how to balance events and still provide top notch services. Kudos.

I have been coming here for the past three years with my family . We usually just stay 1-2 days. The pool is wonderful, plenty of lounge chairs, lagoon style pool, tiki bar , great food and service. Set on the bay. You can paddle board , peddle boat or kayak. Very clean and airy hotel. Close to downtown Sarasota restaurants and st. Armand's circle.

We had 9 family members stay here for my son's graduation, the hotel was so accomodating of us, and even managed to put all of us in 4 different rooms on the same floor. Quite a feat! I had leis and other gifts delivered, and they were very diligent in ensuring they were well taken care of and promptly delivered to us. The beds are incredibly comfortable, the rooms have amazing views, and the restaurant, and especially the breakfast buffet are top notch. We have stayed at the Sarasota Ritz Carlton in the past, but their prices went up for this trip, andf the Hyatt was just as lovely, for much less money! Thank you for helping to make our attendance at our son's graduation so special! Now that he has graduated, we need an excuse to come back!

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the harbor.

Thank you so much for the glowing review! We are so pleased to hear about your family's positive experiences during your stay. There are many choices when it comes to your vacation and travel accommodations, but creating lasting memories and positive experiences is crucial to becoming the hotel of choice in the Sarasota area. We are thrilled to hear that we succeeded in this effort during your stay. Perhaps some of the outstanding Summer Packages that we'll have going in the next few months might be the only excuse you'll need to return? Thank you again!

Big renovation was just finished and the beds were excellent and comfortable over our 5 night stay. The cleaning ladies were attentive and even asked if they could get soup for our daughter when she had a cold. The front desk staff was fun and playful despite our party being loud and on vacation. Starbucks in the lobby was great but the pool was the best. Very South Beach, great drinks and food with a wonderful gas fireplace and smores on command. The main rest was good but not great but overall a wonderful place to stay...

Room Tip: Pool view with a balcony

My wife and I absolutely loved or stay here. It started with 2 very nice welcome drinks and the VERY friendly check in staff offered us our choice of rooms. The classy pool was opened late and hot tub too. We then sat by the fire and talked with other traveling couples. It was nice not being nickeled and dimed to death. The hotel offers free bicycle rental We road all of town to the incredible farmers market as well as the water front and breakfast on the town. It was lots of fun. They also have free kayak rentals and paddle boats. The work out room was super nice! The lobby is classy with a great bar. This place is great for couples or a family. Highly recommend !
