These days blocking rooms is becoming less and less efficient due to travel websites and online booking. We recommend booking through a site like Hotels.com, Hotwire, or Expedia to find the best deal. In addition, there are many condos scattered throughout the Sarasota area and keys. Here a few hotels in the Sarasota area that we can suggest: NEAR THE AIRPORT AND CEREMONY SITE Hilton Garden Inn Sarasota-Bradenton Airport - One mile from Ringling Museum of Art and about 5 miles to the nearest beach. Courtyard by Marriott Sarasota Bradenton - Pretty much the same information as other airport area hotels. BEACH Helmsley Sandcastle - One mile from St. Armands Circle on Lido Key, on the beach, just 7 miles from Ringling Museum of Art. This is a very nice little hotel with very reasonable rates for the wedding weekend! Lido Beach Resort - Half a mile to St. Armands Circle, this hotel was once the Zeller family vacation hotspot for our treks to Florida before it was purchased and renovated, it is the perfect location. Six miles from Ringling Museum of Art and just down the beach from St. Armands. Anna Maria Island Accomodations - This quaint beach village is a wonderful place to enjoy the Florida sunshine. Please contact Adele (Dylan's mom), firstname.lastname@example.org, to secure a rental in this area!
