Property Description

THE PERFECT LOCATIONLocated on a barrier island off the Coast of Sarasota, the Holiday Inn Lido Beach is just steps from the sugar white sands of Lido Beach and just a short walk to over 114 shops, restaurants and evening entertainment spots on St. Armand's Circle. As the closest beachfront hotel to the mainland, downtown Sarasota area golf courses and attractions are only minutes away.GREAT ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIESThe Lido Beach Holiday Inn guest rooms and public areas feature a sophisticated, yet "Florida Casual" decor. Standard amenities include 25-inch TVs, hair dryers, iron & boards, in-room coffee makers, USA Today newspapers and private balconies with views of the City & Bay of Sarasota or Gulf of Mexico. An Exercise Room, Bicycle and Beach Chair rental are also available for our guests’ enjoyment. THE AREA'S BEST BANQUET & DINING FACILITIESIn the SandDollar Rooftop Restaurant, high above Lido Beach, diners indulge in spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico and food to match. Refreshing drinks and “light” fare compliment the relaxed atmosphere in both our KoKonuts Lounge and Tiki Bar. Breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico, Sarasota Bay and surrounding islands are standard features of the banquet rooms at The Holiday Inn Lido Beach.
