Thumbs up Hyatt Regency Sarasota

When hubby and I decided to take the kids on a mini-vacation, I begin researching the Sarasota area.  There are many nearby beaches (Siesta Key, Lido Key, and Longboat Key) which offer white sand and blue water. However, after researching hotels online for a few hours, I found many of the hotels on the beach were either outdated (think 1970s) or out of my budget ($400 a night). 

So I began looking in the city itself.  I was pleased to find the Hyatt Regency Sarasota.  It had a great pool, shuttle service to the beach and St. Armand's Circle, and the right price!  I also used my AAA card to score 2 free breakfasts!

Well, we stayed there this week and were very pleased!  Here are a few pictures:

The kids loved the "bay window" in our standard room:
