After a long day of seeing the sights, there's nothing better than returning to a luxurious room. The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota (1111 Ritz Carlton Dr) and The Resort at Longboat Key Club (220 Sands Point Road) are the top upmarket accommodations to consider here. On the other hand, you wouldn't go on vacation to stay in your room all week.
