After waiting on hold twice for reservations to pick up at the Lido Beach Resort, I turned my attention to securing other accommodations. What a great find: the Sarasota Westin. The awesome marina view from my balcony was just the beginning. The pool is located on the top floor with a great rooftop bar that allows for viewing the awesome gulf sunsets we’ve all heard about. Add to that a first class spa (champagne, caviar, and collagen treatment) and a restaurant that had a limited, but delicious menu (steak frites with polenta fries-yum) and polenta pound cake for dessert. Perhaps the unexpected Cherry on the Sundae was a free shuttle service that took you to Lido Beach /Saint Armand Circle for shopping and dining though there are many wonderful restaurants on the Westin side of the bridge.

I had a wonderful experience at Evoq this evening. From the moment we checked in with Chris, the host, to dessert everything was perfect. Dustin the bartender handled our drink orders with a smile. Rachel, our server, was awesome. Rachel was able to answer all our questions about the menu. The dinner I ordered based upon Rachel’s recommend was delicious. The dessert presentation was amazing. The taste was exquisite. My compliments on an awesome team. They are an asset to the Westin. This was my first visit. It will not be my last.

I went into the Westin for dinner at the rooftop bar, and ended up being moved into the main dining room on the first floor In the lobby due to heavy lightning.. We ended up being served by Dustin whom was absolutely outstanding, his service was superb , And his knowledge of the menu and specials were very intriguing. He absolutely caught my attention with every aspect of my visit and I will definitely be visiting again with my significant other.

I stay at Marriotts over 10 weeks per year, my experience @ the Westin Sarasota has exceeded my expectations beyond all other stays.

Ryan K. at the front desk is responsible for 99% of my exemplary experience. He went above and beyond where he single handedly spun a 180 on what was yet to become just another long day in the office.

This may very well increase his workload but do yourself a favor and ask for Ryan K. upon check in, he will ensure your weekend/vacation starts off on the right foot.

The best hotel shower I've ever used. Extremely clean and spacious room. The beds were very comfortable and we had a hard time wanting to leave them in the morning. We had our elderly grandmother with us and our rooms were further down the hallway, so it was a bit of walking for her. We asked Marcia Stokes, at the front desk, if we could possibly get her a closer room to the elevator. Not only did she do this with a smile, but she also changed our room to have a better view and also surprised us with champagne and chocolate strawberries for my girlfriend who was graduating that weekend! She went above and beyond to make it a special weekend for all of us. The rooftop pool is also gorgeous

Room tip: East side overlooks downtown Sarasota. West side rooms face other hotels or the inlet/river/ocean. North side rooms overlook construction
