Fired Up for Cozy November Stays

Discover hotel hideaways with a cozy fireside touch to celebrate Florida's fall. 

As November ushers in cooler temperatures and a touch of holiday magic, Sarasota's shores shine in the autumn – welcoming visitors looking to escape the cold weather climates of their more northern cities for a satisfying beach breeze. 

There may be towering palm trees and warm, inviting waters, but Sarasotans still want to feel the coziness of fall like everybody else. And what better way to do that than to soak in a heated jacuzzi or huddle around an outdoor fire to enjoy the fresh Florida night air?
