We had an amazing 5 nights there. the service is excellent. Our room had a wonderful view of the bay with balcony. The food was great. They give endless free bottles of water. Conference services top notch. The private beach club which is 10 minutes away on the ocean is a special treat. Big pools are in both locations. Wish...

One of the best Ritz Carlton's in the U.S.! Location is wonderful. Walking distance to great restaurants in Downtown. The Beach Club was the highlight for us. It is beautiful with great food and cocktails. The service at both the Beach Club and the hotel was outstanding. They also have a shuttle so we never had to use our car....

It really frosts me when you stay in a ritz carlton and the service and room are good, but the experience is ruined by the inconsiderate (drunk?) guests. The 1:30 AM dog barking/"catch" playing in the hallway OUTSIDE YOUR ROOM is really not what you expect. Sure you could call the front desk and 20 mins later they will attend...

We enjoyed our stay at this Ritz as we usually do with Ritz properties. My husband and I were in town for business and stayed a little longer to visit my mother in the area. The property is pretty but please note that the beach area associated with this Ritz is a 10 minute shuttle ride away. There is a...

The Ritz at Sarasota has fabulous views of the yacht harbor and city, and the most comfortable beds ever. Of course the service is Ritz-fabulous, warm and comfortable. Everyone who works there seems to really care that your stay is as special as it can be, and they really seem to like doing what they do. A great pool area,...

Nothing any more special than your average Hilton, Marriott, Sheraton. Small room, average amenities, indifferent staff. Not worthy of a Ritz-Carlton name. Extremely overpriced for what you get. Only benefit is access to Lido Beach Club.

We stayed on the club level with myou 5 month old. We have stayed at many Ritz properties on their club level, and this was similar. The staff was very attentive, and checked on us often. The breakfasts were wonderful, champagne all the time, and wine with cookies always available. The cocktail hour left much to be desired food wise,...
