I love this hotel. Maria Andersen is a ROCK STAR!!! I love the location, the restaurant downstairs (burrito is BEST and group sandwich). Wonderful 3 day stay when my furniture delayed and apartment not ready - new resident. Very covid conscious. Very clean. Will send guests here from now on. Great work, Westin.

Room tip: Get bay view if can.

Spent 4 days for anniversary. Great location and more value than ritz next door. We paid a little extra $400 per night for corner room with Marina view. Not really worth it but great room regardless. Clean and modern with super staff. Professional and attentive. Roof top bar is awesome and very cool scene. Downside is pool and gym. Based on conversations with people during time at both, it seems hotel allows non hotel guests unlimited access. Thus both gym and pool deck are populated with uninvested and non paying freeloaders. Seems they take pride in this “free to public” benefits.

Major downside to this otherwise great property

Hello Jackthedog88,

Thank you for sharing your positive and constructive comments with us. I'm glad that you were able to spend your anniversary with us and that our team excelled in our overall guest service. As for your comments with our pool and gym, we do NOT allow outside guests use the pool unless it was a previously authorized by an executive of the hotel or myself. We certainly will look in this matter for corrective actions.

Thank you once again for your feedback and we hope to see you again in the very near future!

Warmest Regards,

Gil Reyes

We were very pleased with Westin and the special care provide by Chris Cancel for my wife’s birthday! A great time while making a great memory. We will be back when visiting Sarasota! Great rooms, roof top bar, dining and pool. Great for a sunset evening. Cheers

excellent check-in experience from friendly staff (Haria Anderson). Fantastic location not far from St. Armand Circle. Walkable location. Only critique: bring your own pillows! Clean, good views (only partial of the ocean).

So happy we escaped snowy NJ for sunny Sarasota! We could not be happier with this hotel & the location. From the hotel lobby to the roof top bar & pool to our beautiful room overlooking the water...well, everything was just wow! We enjoyed the daily valet parking & the fact that this hotel is just minutes from St. Armand's Circle & Lido Beach. Every morning we looked forward to meeting Maria at Guest Services to recommend a wonderful breakfast place & a perfect itinerary for the day. Every evening we looked forward to seeing Mason who always recommended top notch restaurants for dinner & fun facts about Sarasota. We loved our stay so much, we cannot wait to go back!
