The Hyatt Regency Sarasota is a very nice hotel, located near the beaches. The hotel is very nice and the pool area is great. We had a double room with a view of the bay. We stayed as a family of four. The room was a bit small for all of us, and the beds could have been bigger. Beds were comfortable. Unfortunately we had a room next to the elevator, so there was noise when we were trying to sleep. We were not disturbed by noise during the night. The breakfast was wonderful and the pool bar had great lunch. Did not eat dinner in the restaurant.
The hotel is a short drive from St. Armands Circle, where you can find a variety of great restaurants and shops, so we went there every evening (free parking!). There is a resort fee that covers wifi and paddleboat/kayak rentals and two bottles of water each day - good value.
