Known for its prime location and impeccable service, the Lido Beach Resort is Sarasota’s finest beachfront resort. Featuring 222 luxurious guestrooms and suites, guests enjoy upgraded amenities in a serene setting along the white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. We will be happy to discuss a discounted room rate for the guests of this event, if you feel that many people will be traveling from out of town. We are located only minutes from over 114 upscale shops and restaurants on St. Armand’s Circle, and within easy driving distance of all of Sarasota’s attractions. The Resort is just a 10-minute drive from Sarasota / Bradenton International Airport.
Located on the 8th floor and offering a panoramic view of the City Skyline and Sarasota Bay, the Lido Beach Grille is an elegant, yet “beach chique” evening dining experience. The Award-Winning New American Cuisine offers a wide selection to satisfy the most discerning guest. In the adjoining lounge, enjoy exotic libations with unparalleled views of the some of Sarasota’s most amazing sunsets, with live, nightly entertainment. Breakfast and Sunday Brunch are both served in the Lido Beach Grille. For lunch, join us indoors or out in the Café Lido. If you’re looking for beachfront fun, enjoy casual dining and libations at the Tiki Hut Bar & Grille.
Two sets of guests stayed here. Their initial group rate was not comparable to the Hyatt and it took awhile to get a better rate. One set of our guests left after one night to move to a higher quality hotel. It does look pretty dated but at least is close to the beach.
Beautiful and catering manager is awesome! Below the surface, however, be ready for unaccomodating policies - they make it clear they don't need you. They don't hold room blocks above 10 rooms and include sub-par wine selection in a premium package. Be careful and thorough with contracts but it is worth it for a fabulous event!
