Reservations don't mean "reservations". It means you provide your preferences and hope for the best. I reserved a king bed and got two doubles. When I got to the room, late at night after a day's travel, and saw the doubles I was told no kings were available and that I could move tomorrow but I wouldn't have the marina...

We stayed here this past week for a mini-vacation. It was everything I expected and more. Great location within walking distance to downtown restaurants and other attractions. The shuttle to their beach club and the beach club experience were terrific; just what I needed to unwind from work stress. We found the service all around to be professional yet warm....

Very disappointed with front desk, locker room and outdoor serenity room. Despite their policy, we were not called to confirm our appointments on either of our two spa days. The locker room had a pair of women's underwear on the floor when we got ready for our treatments and a pile of dirty robes on the floor when we returned...

We only stayed for one night but we're made very welcome, staff very friendly and helpful. Nice new resort with character, lovely setting for bar and restaurant for dinner lunch and breakfast. We had a great view over the harbour. Room was very nice, could be a better bed mattress for me perhaps a little too hard. Even though we...

We stayed one night during Spring Break. When we arrived the room was not ready. They were very courteous -offered water and a glass of champagne. All expectations were met for this level of hotel. I had not studied the website and was not aware that the Beach Club was not attached. The bus to the Club was convenient and...

We learned from the front desk staff that the hotel is going to be renovated sometime in the summer of 2015. This is good news because the hotel NEEDS to be renovated. The rooms are appointed nicely and are clean (which really is the most important thing to us.) The bathroom was very clean as well. The hotel has zero...

If you're looking to be "blown away' by hospitality and gracious service, then the Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota, is one to experience. Situated on the Gulf coast of Florida, it is modern, close to many restaurants and a short drive, bus ride or walk (if you're inclined) to Lido Key and more shops and restaurants to satisfy your desires. When we first...

My wife and I were in Sarasota for a little R&R but not before running in the Sarasota Half Marathon on March 15th, and we stayed at the Ritz. Obviously at the higher end price wise, we felt that the hotel lived up to our expectations. The parking and lobby staff were all first rate, informative and friendly. Only later...

Having stayed at only a couple of Ritz Carlton properties before I was somewhat accustomed to their level of service however in Sarasota it's amped up even more.

Spent five nights on business. My wife came along and telecommuted from our room while I worked. As Marriott Gold got upgraded to a 'full water view' room. Arriving at a Ritz is always a lovely experience, and this hotel was no different: enthusiastic doormen and a glass of bubbly at check-in. Unfortunately that experience did not consistently carry over...
