“A comfortable lodging right in the center of the action”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

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.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have better views.

My husband and I lately have not had the best experiences with hotels. This hotel surpassed our expectations. We expected far less and were pleasantly surprised with the friendly staff and wonderful atmosphere. We'll definitely come again. I felt completely rejuvenated when I left with my husband. I can't wait to return for an occasional family retreat as well. I agree with the other comments about the marina view from the balcony. It was nice. We loved the comfy beds so much we search the beds for labels and I can't wait to go shopping for our very own mattress.

Hadn't been in this hotel in 22 years. WOW! The redesigns and colors are excellent. What a great swimming pool environment with a great bar. My kids really enjoyed the dive in movie at the cave in the pool complex. Can rent kayaks and paddle boards or boat charters right there in the harbor. Rooms are pleasanty even though they are a bit small. Close to all the shopping and dining on St Armonds Circle and close to Lido and Siesta Beaches. Walk downtown for some good art and atmosphere.

Room Tip: Higher the room better views of Sarasota Bay

I think we got our room for $139 on hotwire so I wasn't expecting much. For what I was expecting I was quite happy. Our room was large and seemed updated recently. The beds and pillows were comfy. The bathroom was just ok. Our room had a nice view of a marina and swimming pool. I suggest you ask for a room facing the Marina(believe it is south side). Two issues were our windows had black stuff all over them(it may have been sealant), and there was a piece of trash on one of the shelves when we arrived. The person who checked us in was pleasant and knowledgeable about the area(Justin Henry). Would stay again.

Thank you very much for your review! We are going over your comments with our Engineering and Housekeeping teams to ensure that those items are remedied - we are in the midst of caulking/sealing some of our windows which is what was likely the case in your room...our apologies and I hope you were able to enjoy the view nonetheless! We really appreciated the feedback and look forward to possibly welcoming you back to Hyatt during your next visit.

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.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevator.

I love the Hyatt in Sarasota. Super friendly staff that make everyone feel important. Rooms are nicely decorated and bedding is super clean. Nice views from almost every room. The outdoor pool area is really great. Waterfalls and plenty of chairs and shade of umbrellas. Pool was really clean and refreshing. Outdoor bar as well. Nice little outdoor fire area surrounded by cushioned seating. They also have fishing poles, kayaks, and paddle boards to use which is included in the $15 resort fee. Parking is plentiful and free.

Room Tip: Marina view is nice higher floor the better with views of downtown Sarasota. Bayview best on higher...
