It’s nice when we appreciate what we have, and the residents of Sarasota certainly have a lot to appreciate about the place we call home! Our employees love sharing our beautiful community with YOU as you visit the Sarasota area. Here are just a few reasons we are certain you’ll love Sarasota and Siesta Key.
Of course, we have to start with the true #1. “Dr. Beach,” coastal expert Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, reported that Siesta Key Beach was the #1 Beach in America in 2011. We continue to be proud of the high ranking on Dr. Beach’s annual list ever since, but realize that he doesn’t repeat #1 selections. (That means we’ll always be “#1!”) However, Dr. Beach’s 2016 report wasn’t too shabby! Siesta Key Beach took home the #2 ranking this year.
In March 2016, Sarasota was ranked the 14th best place to live by U.S. News & World Report. (U.S. News analyzed the 100 most populous metro areas to find the best places to live. To make the top of the list, a place had to have good value, be a desirable place to live, have a strong job market and a high quality of life.) We weren’t surprised that Sarasota’s #14 ranking surpassed every other major Florida market on the list!
We also were pleased to see many Florida cities ranking highly on a new study about quality of life. After all, who doesn’t want to visit or live in the Sunshine State! The Sarasota-Bradenton area ranked #3 on the MarketWatch survey published this year.
Whether you are seeking a temporary residence while building your dream house in Sarasota, a home-away-from-home when duty calls and work brings you to our beautiful city, or simply want to plan a getaway for the beach and culture, the Comfort Suites Sarasota is ready to host you!
