New Hilton planned for Sarasota County

Home2

A new Home2 Suites is planned for Sarasota, Fla.

The 109-room property will be located near both Sarasota-Bradenton international Airport and the University of South Florida’s Sarasota-Manatee campus. The planned all-suite hotel will be located on 2.5 acres of land tract zoned for commercial use. The owner, Excel Sarasota 1, bought the land in November 2013 for $200,000.

The hotel will be located near an existing Hilton-branded hotel, the Hilton Garden Inn Sarasota-Bradenton Airport.

Neighboring Manatee County has 6,200. Three other hotels are under construction in downtown Sarasota roughly four miles south of the planned Home2 Suites. The 139-room Aloft Sarasota by Starwood opened this year in the town as well.
