The Lido Beach Resort far exceeded our expectations with professionalism, attention to detail and quality. Sonja Newton was amazing to work with and very professional yet personable. During our reception the staff was awesome and I felt like a princess. I had one special person of the wait staff assigned to me and she was so kind and attentive. The entire day could not have been more perfect!

We selected the Holiday Inn Lido Beach because of the beautiful city and beach views, catering menu options, and convenience of having the ceremony directly across the street. There were some near emergencies a week prior to the wedding, but Sonja and the staff did everything they could to help us out and it ended up even better than we could have possibly imagined!! The staff was wonderful, Sonja helped make everything look beautiful, and all the guests complimented everything from the location, to the food, to the decor. One person who said they had passed the hotel many times stated they had no idea a room with that view existed in the hotel. I highly recommend this venue as the price is great for such a beautiful setting!!

We selected this location for many reasons. The view is amazing in all directions and provides a feeling of a beach wedding while being protected from the elements. The staff was first class all the way. We can't say enough about their professionalism and desire to please us and our guests. Sonja did a great job of putting it all together and meeting our budget, while providing a fabulous occasion. One of the meals we offered was the petite filet and it was exquisite!

Sonja Newton at the Holiday Inn Lido did a great job. The location was spectacular - it is on the 7th floor overlooking Lido Beach. We had a great thunderstorm and sunset for effect - no extra charge. The room for cocktails and drinks overlooked Sarasota Bay and St. Armands Key. The staff was friendly and efficient. The food was very good - we had a buffet, but opted to have the salads served to the guests and that worked very well. The room was set up beautifully, the dance floor was in a good location, and everyone danced til the end! It all worked so smoothly!! We have gotten so many compliments from our guests!

Sonja was so easy to work with. She accommodated everything we wanted and needed. The reception was amazing she did a great job setting everything up. We were in the Sarasota room the views from up on the 7th floor were breath taking. The food was delicious!! And the wait staff was great!!!! I would do another event there in a heartbeat. Everything from start of planning to the end picking our stuff up after the reception the next day was so easy and the staff was just amazing!!!!!!!

My daughter got married on Lido Beach and the reception at the Holiday Inn Lido Beach. The view was fabulous and the the guest enjoyed the decor and food. The staff at this resort is outstanding they truly went above and beyond to assist with the planning, set up and execution of the whole affair without them esp. Sonya I would have been lost.
