Speaking Of Sarasota ...

My experience in planning meetings in the Sarasota area has been exceptional. I am a long-time meeting planner and resident and contract groups nationally. I can truly say the hotel professionals I’ve worked with here are the best! Warm, innovative, professional and oh so knowledgeable about the entire area as well as their properties. I know when contracting a group here, my job will be easier.
