Full service hotels in or near Sarasota on on Longboat Key

We are senior citizens who want the ease of being able to eat meals in the hotel, and being on or near a beach, and close to shopping. Is there such a place available in January or February? We will rent a car, but the ease of walking to and from sights and dining spots would be best for us. Any such hotels available?

To have all those amenities, Lido Key would probably be a better fit. There's a Holiday Inn on Lido Key and it is an easy walk to St. Armand's Circle which has shops and restaurants. If you get a Gulf facing room you can sit on your balcony and enjoy the views. The hotel is across a narrow, not busy, road from the beach.

Those months are the high season though so secure your accommodation quickly.

You don't say how long you plan to stay or how much you would like to spend per night.

The Holiday Inn Lido is a great suggestion.

There is also the Lido Beach Resort which has a shuttle to St. Armands.

The Ritz Carlton in downtown Sarasota has a Beach Club on Lido with a free shuttle. You could walk downtown Sarasota for shops/dining etc.

We have stayed on the lido key 4 times. The beach is lovely. The holiday Inn would be a great place to stay, loads within walking distance.
