And I am going back . . .
Last February I had one of the best resort hotel experiences I have had in years. A friend and I stayed at the Lido Beach Resort for close to a week . . . and I am going back next month. I liked it that much. The room was incredible, beautifully furnished . . . with incredible Gulf and Lido Beach views. Sarasota is my home town and I moved away back in the 60s. Since then I have come back to visit hundreds of times. I have stayed at a variety of hotels and mostly endured each experience. In fact, I stayed at the Ritz Carlton for a long weekend one trip and hated it. But the LBResort is perfect in everyway. The staff is not just friendly and courteous, it's genuinely interested in seeing that your needs are met and your visit is memorable. The resort itself is conveniently located on Lido Beach, "just around the corner" from St. Armands and minutes away from downtown Sarasota . . . the airport is a very short drive away. Picture waking up in the morning and looking our a large picture window just beyond the bed and seeing Lido Beach as it stretches north towards Longboat Key; or the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico from your balcony. Also, Sunday brunch at Christopher's is a very special treat.
If you're looking for value, LBR is one place to check out given some of the outrageous pricing Sarasota area hotels and resorts are asking. To me, the bigggest and most honest endorsement I can give the resort is a simple statement: "I'm going back". And the upcoming visit will not be my last.
