My husband I and stayed at the Hotel Ranola from Dec 3-8, 2011. We chose the hotel based on the downtown location and the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. In fact, our expectations were exceeded by the huge suite (The Royal Kir) with full kitchen, eating area, king bed, living room, vanity/makeup area and bathroom.The decor is art deco as the building is from the 1920's. Although the building is almost 100 years old, the rooms have been updated and are comfortable, clean and stylishly decorated. The bed is very comfortable and the shower/tub has great water pressure. The bathroom is on the small side but having the vanity area makes all the difference. The location couldn't be better - close to Main St. and all the great restaurants - all in walking distance. Only a few minutes drive to St. Armand's Circle or Siesta Key beach. Kathy is a perfect hostess - ready to give advice when asked but never invading our privacy. We have fallen in love with Sarasota and the Hotel Ranola will be out go-to hotel from now on.
