Avoid room 141, ground level, facing the pool, beach side (or rooms near it). The mechanism for the elevator is located across the passage way. Whenever the elevator rises, the machinery makes an extremely loud and penetrating buzzing sound, like an alarm warning. We brought it to management's attention immediately and were told that engineering would check on it. If...

Excellent location, 15 minute walk to St. Armand's Circle with lots of shops and restaurants. Lots of nice amenities at the Lido Beach Resort i.e. Beach, pool, restaurants, bar. I highly recommend the Lido Beach Resort if you plan to visit anywhere near Sarasota.

Our room was an oceanfront 10th floor so what's not to like? A beautiful beach, convenient to St. Armands' with the shuttle service, and nice on property amenities/bars and restaurants. Great relaxing facility, attentive staff - a first class experience in a first class hotel.

The overall room was absolutely gorgeous. Clean, comfortable, the beds were fantastic and everything was fresh and modern. However, a couple of hours after check in, I ran in to two separate circumstances where housekeeping entered my room without knocking and un-announced. The first time I let it go, while not thrilled. The second time was when I had just...
