      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ranola Sarasota

      Super Unterkunft!

      from

      Ein wunderbarer Fund im Herzen Sarasotas.. Modern und sehr bequem, alles was man für eine entspannte Reise oder Geschäftsreise benötigt.. man kann alles zu Fuß erreichen, von den Restaurants und Bars im Zentrum bis zur Bay, die nur wenige Minuten entfernt ist... wärmstens empfohlen.. wann kann ich wieder ins Ranola!!!!

      Great Location

      from

      A very nice small hotel in an excellent location. A short walk to many good restaurants. I had as good a pizza as I've ever tasted at Il Panifico one block away on Main St. Robert and Kim (the owners) were extremely pleasant, very helpful and enthusiastic. I would definitely stay there again. Convenient parking is included.

      Super Lage

      from

      Ein sehr angenehmes kleines Hotel in ausgezeichneter Lage. Viele gute Restaurants sind nur wenig Gehminuten entfernt. Ich habe im Il Panifico einen Block entfernt an der Main Street die beste Pizza bisher serviert bekommen. Robert und Kim (die Inhaber) waren äußerst angenehm, sehr hilfsbereit und motiviert. Ich werde sicherlich wieder hier übernachten. Geschicktes Parken ist auch im Preis inbegriffen.

      Hotel in posizione ottimale

      from

      Questo è un piccolo hotel delizioso con una posizione eccezionale, a pochi passi da tanti ottimi ristoranti. A Il Panificio, a un isolato dall'hotel lungo Main St., mi hanno servito la pizza migliore che avessi mai assaggiato. Robert e Kim, i proprietari dell'hotel, erano persone piacevolissime e molto disponibili che gestivano l'hotel con grande entusiasmo e passione. Ritornerei sicuramente. Il comodo parcheggio è usufruibile gratuitamente.

      Best New Year's Ever

      from

      We wanted to stay near downtown Sarasota for the New Year's street party. Hotel Ranola is in a historic building in the heart of downtown. The restoration job they've done is just terrific - really cute decor - loved having a kitchen. You feel that you are staying in a very hip in town apartment rather than a hotel. Owner Kim personally handled check in which was nice.

      Il Capodanno migliore della nostra vita

      from

      Avevamo cercato un hotel che si trovasse nei pressi del centro di Sarasota per poter partecipare ai festeggiamenti di piazza della vigilia di Capodanno. L'Hotel Ranola è un edificio storico situato in pieno centro. L'hanno ristrutturato di recente, con risultati ammirevoli. L'hotel ha ora uno stile davvero carinissimo ed era una vera comodità disporre di una cucina personale. Avrete l'impressione di alloggiare in un appartamento cittadino all'ultima moda piuttosto che in un hotel. La proprietaria, Kim, si è occupata personalmente del check-in - è una persona deliziosa.

      Fun and modern hotel with all the comforts of home.

      from

      My husband and stayed at Hotel Ranola over the Thanksgiving holiday and it was wonderful. The owners are extremely helpful in pointing you in the right direction to all the hot spots and wonderful sites of Sarasota. They truly go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. Our room was amazing and had all the comforts of home. The rooms are decorated with a funky modern twist but the character of the 1900's building is not lost. There are so many special touches from the kitchen being fully stocked ,to the wonderful bathroom tolietires, to the comfortable bed, to the ipod station,and flat screen t.v. The hotel is also located in walking distance to fabulous shops and restaurants .This hotel stands out among the other generic hotels in Sarasota and a stay there will truly enhance your travel

      A Fabulous Find!

      from

      We were so surprised when we arrived! None of our friends in and around Sarasota had heard of the hotel so I was a bit suspicious. Well were we lucky! It turns out the hotel had only been open for two months and what a find! We were fortunate enough to stay in one of the suites which was huge! Two very spacious rooms and a full kitchen with eat in table. Free WiFi, plasma screen televisions...it was great. Even the single rooms were huge (we took a peak as we were leaving). This hotel is in a super location within walking distance to all the shops and cafes and only a short distance by car to the beaches. We spend a lot of time traveling for business and pleasure and I must say should either take us back to Sarasota we would book the Ranola and hope they had availability!

      Hotel Ranola is so Unique

      from

      Hotel Ranola is a building from 1926 that has been converted to a hotel. The room that we stayed in was really big compared to other hotels we have visited. They have black and white tile in the kitchens and bathrooms. I liked the Sitting area because you could watch tv not from your bed... although the beds were most comfortable. Very plush. We loved being downtown because we walked to a different restaurant each night (and lunch for that matter!). The hotel is run by a husband and wife team who seem to be very happy in their new business. They gave us tons of information about the area and even printed out directions to my in laws house. We highly recommend Hotel Ranola. It has a lot of charm and character and all the amenities you would find any any four or five star hotel.

      Hotel Ranola is Amazing!

      from

      Hotel Ranola opened it's doors a week before we stayed. It was amazing. Funky style, small and located in downtown Sarasota. We parked our car and didn't get into except to drive 10 mintues to the beach. Tons of restaurants and shops right there. The local owners were so excited to be in business and helped us with ideas and directions where to go. We loved it. The rooms were big too! Similar to South Beach style deco hotels with more space!

The 3000+ sq feet homes would cost around $1.3m. But there were smaller ones in the $600k range. It would be an absolute heaven for the winter months!!

      By the time we finished looking at the model homes, it was almost 5pm. We ...

I thought we would spend some time in Naples but once we hit the road I decided I wanted to get a bit closer to where my family is so we went to Sarasota FL. I really, really like that area. Great beaches, water everywhere with the Gulf and the Inter-coastal. We spent a week there. Went to a fantastic 2 hour Holiday night parade through downtown Sarasota, spent ...
