If youâ€™re meeting or having a conference in Sarasota, there is a huge variety of venues to choose from; however, I have had some of the best experiences with the Hyatt Regency in Sarasota, FL. Not only do they have beautiful gardens and ocean views, but their facilities are top notch. Starting with their location, which is easy to find and give directions to, it is one of the few buildings in the area located so close to the magnificent waters along Sarasotaâ€™s coast line. This means that it is central to many sights and attractions Sarasotaâ€™s Art District has to offer. Guests can also visit the breathtaking, world-renowned white sand beaches within just a few minutes to enjoy legendary Gulf Coast sunsets, sea gulls, and sailboats. Not to mention, it is only five minutes from the Sarasota/Bradenton Airport, and one hour from the Tampa International Airport. Starting with their 10,000 square foot ballroom that can be divided into eight separate sections for smaller functions, depending upon the type of event or conference you are holding, there is room for anything and everyone at the Hyatt Regency in Sarasota. Any person representing the Hyatt is incredibly friendly, helpful and accommodating. They can handle just about every aspect of the coordination for you, and make it as easy as can be. With its private marina, panoramic atrium, and 294 rooms, the Hyatt Regency of Sarasota is definitely one of my top choices for events and conferences in this area.
