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

This is by far the best hotel in the area. The beds and linens, the food and the service are exceptional. The property itself is freshly updated and well appointed....And they accept pets! It is located near St Armand's Circle and has its own beach club.

We spent the first four days of our Honeymoon at the RC Sarasota, expecting an incredible experience and were not disappointed. The back of the house departments traditionally get little attention from reviews, but in our case they all played an important part in our experience. From the first interaction with the valet service, it was a whirlwind of exceptional... More

I haven't been here for years, so I'm not sure when they changed it up, but it is gorgeous. The old bar is gone, and it's much more of a multi-experience big space with lots of nooks, and a great outdoor space overlooking the marina and pool with heaters - and blankets!. The food and service is wonderful, as is... More

Used my Marriott points and well worth it. Everyone was super friendly and the room had a nice view of the bay. We drove to their beach property and backed in the sun for a while. Very nice beach with free umbrella service.

Our first trip to Sarasota. A lovely town with genuine, friendly people. The Ritz Carton was excellent. Great service. Good food. Lovely room. Three great days. The pool is only in the sun for a couple of hours a day, our only complaint, but the nearby beach club is perfect and more than makes up for it.

The staff throughout the hotel was very attentive. Ida, the front desk, shops, restaurant, valets, spa, housekeeping and the golf course, went out of their way to make our anniversary memorable. We also had a great view from our room and the location was close to everything.

This downtown hotel, with it's grand entry halls and elegant decor and flowers, greeted us with impeccable service and smiles. The location is ideal, right downtown so you can walk to fine dining, but also at the bridge across to the keys, where they have a pool and cabana house to visit during the day. This pool house was my... More
