Guests say the location alone is worth booking a stay at this hotel. The Westin Sarasota is blessed with a truly incredible setting, standing tall in the Bayfront region of downtown Sarasota, Florida. So not only are you close to the water, but you are also a short drive away from points of interest, including the beaches of Lido Key and Siesta Key. Accommodations here offer city, partial bay or marina views from floor-to-ceiling windows or balconies, as well as other comforts, including pillow-top mattresses, coffee makers, minifridges, 49-inch flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access (which the $22 daily resort fee covers). Outside the rooms, lodgers will find a gym that offers complimentary fitness classes to guests, a spa with an in-house salon, two restaurants and a rooftop pool, the latter of which was a favorite among several recent travelers. For an unforgettable experience, make sure to stick around the pool area during sunset for remarkable views of Sarasota’s coastline. In addition to a knockout location, many guests attribute their memorable stays to the warm, fun and friendly staff, especially those working at the front desk and the rooftop eatery. And since Westin is part of the Marriott family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and redeem points here.
