Stayed 2 free nights here using credit card benefits when room rates were around $700 per night. Hotel is modern, clean, and luxurious, though the rooms aren't particularly large. Comfortable beds & linens, friendly and helpful staff. Shuttle to beach was easy enough and Beach Club was very nice, great service. Room service food was good with prompt delivery. Wifi...

Everything was exceptional. My favorite hotels. We especially enjoyed the Beach Club and pools. We cannot wait for our next stay! While we love orher Ritz properties, this is by far the best in our opinion.

We've stayed at many Ritz Carlton's for business and pleasure, and the service at some of the hotels isn't what it used to be when the Ritz was famous for their customer service. This was our first visit to the Sarasota Ritz, and the staff at this hotel exceeded our expectations. The excellent service happened all week in every corner...

Bay view rooms are not really bay views they are views of other buildings through which you can catch a glimpse of the bay. Suites are very small for The price Not worth the money. The beach club was fun.

I really enjoyed this property. Very clean, very friendly staff and all the service and amenities you would expect at a Ritz Carlton. Beach club was a bit far and the weather was not the best, but once you get there it is lovely.

This place exceeds expectations. Great location and food and physical plant. What really makes the difference, though is the excellent customer service. From check in to poolside serve, all servers treat you like family instead of just a customer. That is what makes the Ritz the Ritz!

Web pictures aside, the hotel is NOT on the beach. Have to ride a hotel bus that runs on intervals (30 minutes or an hour) to go the 3.5 miles to their beach facility (which IS very nice). Heard same comment from several others. Also, we had a "marina view" room, which was no longer an appropriate description. Two buildings...

Love this hotel and location. All you need is here. Beach and pool and shuttles to make it easy. Service phenomenal as expected by a Ritz Carlton. Nice location to the city of Sarasota and to st Armand's circle.

This is a Ritz, I found the staff to be stellar, the services to be first rate and accommodations comfortable. However, I had a harbor room marina view room - and it was pretty basic. The room was lovely and did see the marina, but the view is really of a a Hyatt hotel in the distance - not all...
