Good hotel but no better than other less expensive hotels in the same area that are actually on the beach, So the value is really not there. With that being said, the staff was very attentive but my favorite was the Limo Driver for the Ritz. A Canadian with a lot of information about the local scene.he was very helpful...

My first time at a Ritz Carlton, not sure what i was expecting but it didn't live up to it. The newly remodeled room left a lot to be desired. Hard to use extremely loud coffee maker, with no instructions and weirdly, no light over that area. Housekeeping, which failed on several levels, no towel, coffee, tea or coffee cup!...

First time in the area and decided that staying in The Ritz would complement our visit. We all know that it not a budget hotel but for the money spent (over $900.00 for two nights, no bar or restaurant used) I would expect a lot more comfortable stay. We opted for a view upgrade, not free, hoping to avoid the...

Was in Sarasota to move our daughter to college. Staying at the Ritz made this a great weekend - we'll be back whenever we are in town. The service was excellent and the new restaurant/ patio area offers a great view of the sunset and a really nice menu. The mermaid on top of the bar Saturday nights was the...

Recently stayed a Saturday night while in town. Staff was very nice throughout the hotel from valet, to front desk, to bartenders. Property is very nice, situated downtown, near shopping, restaurants and the water. Rooms are a little small and dated, but nonetheless, very comfortable, large bathroom, and balcony with a view of the water and seating for breakfast was...

Room with a view was requested. They put us facing downtown initially, but changed it to a view of the Gulf the next day. Room 208 was okay, would have enjoyed a higher floor with a better view. Pool was welcoming, and right off the bay. I cannot complain about the staff and customer service - both top notch. Valet...

We stayed here for a week, the service and the beach club was amazing!! One area for improvement would be the pool at the beach club it was very very rough which cute me over 5 times!! But except from that minor disruption its well worth the money and it was a fantastic week well spent!

The Ritz in Sarasota is perfect to just relax and enjoy the beautiful grounds. The pool is peaceful and the spa is great. If you can stay in a club suite that is an added luxury. The fairly new Jack Dusty restraunt is good with a laid back atmosphere .Take in your surroundings and enjoy your stay. I always do

We had booked a two night getaway and were able to get a pretty good package which included breakfasts and $125 credit with the parking and resort fees waived. Had requested a higher floor but opted to have one of the renovated rooms so we were on the third floor. The room was beautiful, absolutely no view but the service...
