This hotel exceeded our expectations. The beach club on Lido Key was beautiful. We really enjoyed the beach service and ordered drinks and lunch daily from our beach chairs. Having the ice water replenished regularly was convenient. We had fresh fruit in our room and in the spa. We took the hotel provided kayaks out into the bay one morning...

Stayed at this facility and did not want to leave!! A great location, can walk into downtown area. The hotel has a shuttle that takes you to Lido Key where St Armand's Circle is for shopping heaven!! You also get to use the Beach Club on Lido Key which is beautiful. We were lucky enough to be on the Concierge...

For the most part loved this hotel. Great experience, maybe not the greatest "value" but a very enjoyable experience. The "Beach Club" is the overwhelming feature that won me over; it's not overly publicized, but you get over there and lose yourself for the day. Service and food fantastic as was the facility. Just a complete unwind. The pool and...

This is a great location in Sarasota – easily accessible to St. Armand’s Circle and the beach (as long as the traffic isn’t terrible!), and also the delightful downtown area. The property is nice, (although the rooms were a little tired), and the bathrooms were large and well appointed. Nice balcony overlooking the water, but if you are on the...

No great surprise that the rooms and amenities at this Ritz Carlton are first-rate. My room on the 8th floor was spacious, spotlessly clean and well furnished. The bathroom was also a good size. What impressed me most of all, however, was the quality of the staff. Unfailingly helpful, hospitable, and sincere. The quality of the food supplied for our...

Having stayed at several Ritz-Carltons, we knew what to expect and It lived up to our expectations. The room was lovely though small and had a nice water view. However, it also had a marvelous view of the construction site across the street. Staff was always very friendly and helpful. Only one person gave us misinformation and one other dropped...

I stay here frequently when visiting my daughter who lives in the area. It's the kind of place where the service and friendliness of the staff just always amazes me. Immaculate hotel that smells of that wonderful spa smell. Rooms could be updated, which I believe is happening right now. Spa is terrific. The doorman, valet and club level concierge...

On our third stay in as many years, and I still love it. The physical hotel is nearly perfect, service is attentive but not intrusive, and the club level tops it all off. I'm really stingy with "excellent" ratings but this hotel really deserves the praise. The only drawback was not all the guests were as wonderful as the hotel....

This is a review update. The original review was from June 2014. Stayed in December 2014 and January 2015. The bar was far more lively on Saturday evenings with the addition of a mermaid. Yes, a live mermaid (bikini clad air brushed) on the bar. She updates the atmosphere and guests were still speaking about in Dusty's restaurant in the...

I usually do not stay at the Ritz so this was a chance to test the reputation. The Hotel was spotless and there were always people around to help and greet you by name. Every day it seemed as if there was another free cocktail or champagne in the lobby. For a high end hotel it was a joy to...
