We had 3 rooms for 4 nights over the Thanksgiving Break for ourselves and our 4 teens/young adults. The rooms were very nice. Two were adjoining, which was great for togetherness/communication. Had breakfast(s), lunch and dinner at the restaurant and everyone was pleased with the food and the service. Quick valet retrieval. Lovely beach club and both pools. Husband used... More

The hotel was extremely clean and all the employees were very pleasant and helpful. There were 2 employees that stood out and went way above all expectations and that was Kimmy and Audra who work the 8th floor club area.

We stayed here over Thanksgiving. The rooms were nice and the location good. The beach club, a short drive away, was great. The impeccable staff and service will keep me coming back. One suggestion, request a higher floor room to enjoy the view.

This hotel is my most favourite, I travel a lot but this is the best by far if any five star hotel I stay in.. Beautiful setting, close enough to walk to all the local hotels or tiki bars.. I have stayed here two years running now and the staff are so friendly and professional.. Excellent place

My partner and I like to stay here. We have done so many times in the past and each time we splurge on upgrades. It is never an inexpensive trip. So, I signed us up for the Ritz Carlton Rewards thinking that all the money we have spent will add up to something in the future. Our last trip on... More

This was our first visit to Sarasota, Florida, and we will definitely return! We stayed for a week. This RC location has great views of the bay and ocean. The restaurant service and food were excellent, and patio seating was very pleasant. The pool at the hotel main location is a bit small, but good if you're looking for something... More

Great location, superb staff. Shout out to Bryan at the pool for perfect seat selections. Hard to find a fault anywhere on property. That staff on the 8th floor was amazing. Felt like being at home. They knew your name immediately and were as friendly as any young group I have ever encountered in a hotel. Valet staff was equally... More

We love the Sarasota Ritz Carlton. We travel extensively and have stayed in some of the world's finest hotels. Though it is smaller in size than others of similar caliber, it surpasses most when it comes to the level of service provided to its guests. From the moment of check-in guests are treated like VIPs by the attentive staff. An... More

Great location and steps away from Saint Armand's circle with nice boutiques and a great choice of restaurant. The service we received at the hotel was exceptional and the attitude of all the staff was genuine and they care. The bed was very comfortable and the room very clean. Just wished that the swimming pool had more exposure to the... More
