Sarasota’s New Hotel Offers Best Views in Town

Standing 18 stories tall, the Westin Sarasota delivers breathtaking views of downtown Sarasota and the Bay. With 255 beautifully constructed guest rooms and suites, the Westin puts guests near the city’s best theatre, arts and beaches.


The views are unlike anything you’ve been likely to experience in Downtown Sarasota. In the short time that I was able to visit this rooftop paradise, I viewed an incredible sunset and spectacular views of the Bay that will make you say “WOW”.


The luxury hotel opened about two weeks ago and includes a much talked about open-air bar on the top 19th floor. The roof is surrounded by glass-paneled fencing, lounge chairs and couches great for evenings out with friends.  The drinks are various concoctions that you would find at a pool-side bar including, Bellinis, Margaritas, rum and multiple beers. There’s nothing like a light refreshing drink, enjoying the best view of Sarasota that you could ask for.
