We have stayed in several different places in Sarasota. The Hyatt Regency is one of our favorites. The staff is very attentive. When they could not resolve a minor issue completely, they immediately offered to comp our next meal. The recreational facilities are first rate. We had to travel to Sarasota for a family emergency and were able to get a reservation on short notice. We paid extra for the package that included parking and unlimited use of the recreational facilities. It was a real bargain. The restaurant served delicious meals and offered good variety. The breakfast buffet was outstanding. Our room was clean and comfortable with a great view of the arts center. We were minutes away from the Ringling Museum, downtown, Marina Jack's, the waterfront, shopping and the beaches.
