Art Ovation Hotel
Art Ovation Hotel is a boutique property in the heart of downtown Sarasota. Flaunting an extensive art gallery, live music, and a rooftop pool, it sits steps away from attractions like the Sarasota Opera. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle to nearby Lido Key Beach, which includes a set of chairs and a portable cooler. The rooms even come with a sketchbook and ukulele for guests who want to channel their inner artist during their stay.
The Sarasota Modern
Located in the Rosemary District, The Sarasota Modern is an architectural stunner. “The hotel pays homage to Paul Rudolph, a pioneer of the Sarasota School of Architecture during the years he lived in Sarasota in the 1950s,” says Hauser. Less than four miles from Sarasota Bradenton International Airport, the hotel comes with complimentary bicycles, a plunge pool, a hot tub, and a pool.
The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota
For visitors seeking luxury, The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota offers access to an on-site spa, a championship-level golf course, and the exclusive Beach Club on nearby Lido Key. The oceanfront property is not situated directly on the sand, but it does feature a complimentary shuttle that transports guests the three miles to the shore.
