It’s almost time to let the games begin!! Sarasota-Bradenton is gearing up to host an incredible series of rowing events as part of the 2017 World Rowing Championship set for September 23-October 1. The Sarasota-Bradenton area will host 1,700 athletes and thousands of spectators from more than 60 countries as they descend on “America’s Course,” Nathan Benderson Park.
This week, we welcomed our first team as they checked into the hotel and begin to get settled for the high-stakes competition. Please say hello to the rowing team from Greece!
We are certainly ready for the World Rowing Championship at the Comfort Suites Sarasota. Hotel staff members will be volunteering at Nathan Benderson Park during the races, we’ll be hosting a reception table in lobby where the hotel will be streaming a live feed of the events as well. Our friends at Der Dutchman will be catering meals for athletes in the hotel’s banquet space and one hotel suite will even be setup with a rowing machine and sports medicine operations.
Almost the entire property will be serving the rowing festivities this September, but click here to to find out how you can join in the fun surrounding the World Rowing Championships! Click here to check rates and availability for your next stay at the Comfort Suites Sarasota.
