Lakewood Ranch Hotel

Discover Sarasota, a thriving "green" community with deep roots in the responsible stewardship of its surrounding environment. You'll find dozens of attractions and activities in this Gulf Coast town, from world-class golf courses and cultural events to western Florida's lovely beaches and landscape. Situated in the fashionable and picturesque development of Lakewood Ranch, our upscale boutique hotel has become part of this community's stirring landscape and overlooks scenic Lake Osprey. Our location is convenient to downtown, area freeways, Nathan Benderson Aquatic Park and Lakewood Ranch Premier Sports Campus. Just 7 miles from the Sarasota/Bradenton International Airport, Holiday Inn embraces the spirit of this unique Gulf Coast community, offering guests only the finest in service and amenities as well as a lauded onsite restaurant, meeting and event spaces, and access to the best attractions the area has to offer.

Eco-Friendly Community Living

Lakewood Ranch is one of the most exciting developments in the community. This "green zone" is a paradise of good living that also proffers to give back just as much-if not more-of what it gets. Starting in 2005, new homes and structures have been built with green, environmentally friendly materials, the idea being that a light footprint on nature's gifts will yield a great reward for those who call this area home - whether it's permanent or temporary.
