The last time I stayed in a Ritz Carlton was last summer in Montreal. It was outstanding. With that in mind we decided to venture to the Sarasota branch this winter on a whistle stop tour of South Florida. Firstly I have to say that my observations with Florida this summer is that the usual impeccable American service has abandoned...

My wife and I spent a long weekend at this Ritz and were delighted with the quality of the hotel - especially the food and service! I will start with my one low light which is for some reason they have not installed HDTV in their rooms. But if you are picking your hotels for the quality of their televisions...

A lovely hotel, with over the top service, great housekeeping and a fantastic beach club facility. Quite a splurge but worth it. The bed was very comfy and room attendants were attentive. The pool and the beach are fantastic though a bit crowded due to the fact that it is a facility for residents, hotel guests and members.

I splurged for a three night stay the Ritz while staying in Sarasota. The property is beautiful, the lobby and outdoor areas are lovely and well maintained, and the location to downtown shopping/restaurants is perfect. The room was another story - I can sum it up in one word: TIRED. The decor was dated, the bed was LESS than comfortable...

We stayed in a Club Level Room for a week, We have stayed there a number of times and it never disappoints. The staff is very accommodating and everything about the hotel is absolutely top notch. Not inexpensive but you get what you pay for.

I was looking for a short warm-weather getaway with my family and Sarasota fit the bill. Having stayed at other Ritz-Carltons, I knew that the amenities of the club floor would help offset the price of a suit. The good: the staff was fantastic, and incredibly kid-friendly. From the moment we set foot in the lobby and saw the stunning...
