HOTELS

You'll find an enormous variety of hotels, inns, bed & breakfasts, and seasonal residences to choose from in Sarasota. Here we've listed some of the most popular. Prices range greatly from the very reasonably priced to the most exclusive, and reservations are strongly encouraged, especially during "season" from November through March. Lodging is arranged for the most part within walking distance of downtown, near the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, along U.S. 41 North/Tamiami Trail ["the Trail"], or on the beaches to suit a range of personal preferences.

Many hotels offer special rates for guests of Ringling College of Art and Design, so be sure to ask about the "Ringling College of Art and Design Special Rate" when you call to make your reservations.

Please note: Rates are subject to change at any time. Please confirm the listed rate directly with the hotel when making your reservation. [Last updated 2.4.13]
