Holiday Inn Lido Key - Great 'best kept' secret!

by Deb
(Sarasota FL 34233)

My family has been coming to Lido Key for 25+ years.

We originally bought a timeshare and 4 years ago made the move to buy a home.

One constant for us for many years has been sunset dinner at the Holiday Inn restaurant on Lido Key (the one on the 7th floor).

It has been redone and is not only beautiful, the food is excellent.

You can pay three times the price for a meal at one of the many really fancy restaurants in Sarasota (and we've been there also) but the view, food and location at the Holiday Inn makes it very worthwhile.

Everything from access/parking to the service of the wait staff makes for a wonderful experience.

Publsiher's note: The Holiday Inn Sarasota-Lido Beach is located at 233 Benjamin Franklin Dr, Sarasota, FL 34236
