After about a month away from Australia, we were seriously missing the beach! Our friends invited us to visit them in Sarasota this past weekend and we knew we could not pass up the chance! We stayed at the Tribute Modern Sarasota Hotel. The hotel just opened so everything was brand new. I just loved how this hotel was a great mix of modern and retro at the same time. Since the hotel is still going through it’s soft opening we got the whole pool to ourselves. We felt like it was our own private resort. Although the hotel had a few kinks to work out, I highly recommend staying here while in Sarasota.
