Sarasota is much loved for its distinctive culture, where art, opera, music, ballet and more can be relished at countless venues, all a stone’s throw from the blissful Floridian coast.
The Art Ovation Hotel is an ode to Sarasota’s arts scene, not just a place to rest your head but a hip venue promising expositions, workshops and musical performances too.
The Gallery Lounge hosts enthralling exhibitions that can be admired while you sip a perfectly crafted cocktail or fine American wine, and there’s even a ballroom where events are also frequently held. Dine at the Ovation Restaurant for contemporary takes on American cuisine, and be sure to dedicate a few hours a day to the Perspective rooftop bar. Here, you can ponder the Sarasota skyline with a drink in-hand, or dip in and out of the rooftop pool. And if you can wake up in time, poolside yoga sessions then take place daily at 7am, making for a restorative start to your day.
As for the accommodation itself, Art Ovation Hotel sports elegant guestrooms with the choice of a king-size or two queen-size beds, and King Suites that offer double the space with living and dining areas to relax in. They all come with in-room tablets, as well as sketchbooks, musical instruments and artwork, naturally.
A clean palette of white and dove grey ensures the guestrooms and suites of Art Ovation Hotel are bright and airy, festooned with unique pieces of art. Each is well-appointed with tech features including tablets, coffee machines and flat-screen TVs with Netflix and Hulu, as well as workspaces, walk-in showers, mini fridges and queen or king-size beds. In addition, you’ll find a sketchpad and drawing pencils, a selection of books and even a musical instrument waiting for you, should the creative mood take you!
Feast on delectable American fare at the hotel restaurant, a glorious example of contemporary design. The Gallery Lounge is then placed to serve as both an art gallery and chic bar, providing creative cocktails and some of the finest wines from America.
Head up to the hotel’s rooftop for drinks, DJ music and bar snacks at Perspective. The rooftop pool is also right here, so come and cool off, grab a cocktail and gaze out at the Sarasota skyline from this hip and trendy perch.
