Choose our Holiday Inn® Sarasota hotels to explore the sugar-sand beaches of the Sarasota Keys and a vibrant local art scene. Known for its pastel-hued Gulf Coast sunsets, Sarasota is a contemporary hub for restaurants, galleries and shops.
Our Sarasota hotels make it easy to explore the cultural capital of the Florida Gulf Coast. Head downtown to the seashell-shaped Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall for its annual lineup of major concerts. Relax by shimmering Sarasota Bay during one of the free Van Wezel "Friday Fest on the Bay" concerts. From our hotels in Sarasota, visitors can walk among old masters like Rubens at the Ringling Museum of Art, now part of the Florida State University campus; admission is free every Monday. Grab the kids and cross the campus to the Circus Museum to see vintage calliopes and an irresistible miniature 1930s circus. Florida sunshine paints a golden patina on the gilded mansion of John and Mable Ringling, Ca d'Zan, nearby. A palatial nod to Venetian palazzos, Ca d'Zan is open for tours.
From our hotels in Sarasota you can grab a latte and browse downtown Sarasota, jam-packed with art galleries and boutiques. Stay for dinner and mingle with the locals while enjoying a burger or fresh seafood. Our Sarasota hotels are close to Palm Avenue galleries and the artists' colony at Towles Court, where studios are open to the public. For dinner with a view, visit Old Salty Dog on City Island or Marina Jacks downtown. Enjoy affordable home-cooked meals at Yoder's, Sarasota's Amish-Mennonite restaurant-save room for the apple pie.
Book your room at one of our Sarasota hotels to eat your way through Restaurant Week in June, or in October to celebrate stone crab season at the Stone Crab, Seafood & Wine Festival on Longboat Key.

The room needed to be aired out - it was musty. Thankfully everything else about the stay (bed comfort, room noise, breakfast, TV channels, etc) was on point.[Less]
Nice staff and hotel. Needed extra towels and the staff brought them in about a minute.[Less]
Staff at the desk was nice helpful and answered our questions. They were able to accommodate us for two extra nights because our flight was cancelled due to snow. I did not appreciate that we had to[More] pay a higher nightly rate for those two nights. Doesn't seem fair
Room was clean. Iam picky about that and they did. Good job.
Would like to have a comfortable chair to sit in in the room to read or watch tv. You are forced to watch tv only from the bed.
The shower water was only lukewarm !
The breakfast was a mess! They didn't restock or clean up after guests. Things were empty. No forks one day. Ran out of tea bags. Cereal spilled all over the area not cleaned up. Coffee was repeatedly empty and not hot. No bacon one day. The bin just stayed empty wasn't refilled OJ empty one day. Really a mess. Staff needs to be trained how to work
that area to keep it stocked and clean.
Can you please provide clean cold drinking water from a dispenser ? It would be appreciated very much. The fruited water in the lobby is not cold or fresh and I need plain water
Your kitchen trash cans are ridiculous. Guests must fold their trash to put it in. Too small always overflowing and the wrong kind of can with a small top.
I would appreciate being able to get cold drinking water from
