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 However, after researching hotels online for a few hours, I found many of the hotels on the beach were either outdated (think 1970s) or out of my budget ($400 a night).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:
