Ok... I don't want to say too much, because they'll remember me. The place is nice, the rooms are clean, the staff does their job, but it's stuffy, it's expensive & it wasn't worth it... I wasn't impressed by any aspect of the hotel. It felt like they deserved B's in every category, but they knew it ... Check -...

The spa at the Ritz Carlton is so great! I had myself and my wedding party all get their hair and makeup done, and everything was absolutely perfect! Carolyn really organized everything perfectly and made us all feel like royalty. Her staff and everyone who worked in the salon were also wonderful. We all had different looks we were going...

I enjoy staying at RC-Sarasota while on business in Sarasota. The location is convenient for conducting business and entertaining clients. The staff is engaging but not intrusive. This was my second stay and the staff has been consistent thus far.

Attention to detail is lacking. Service is extremely lacking. Wait staff needs training for this brand of property. The level of service has severely dropped compared to previous experiences at this property.

First time at this property. Great staff and a nice contemporary update of what was a more traditional Florida ritz. Stayed in bay view suite. Nice room, good electronics. Arrived at 530, room was not ready which was initially disappointing, but staff compensated well with drinks in the bar. Service uniformly exemplary from the front desk to the spa. Club...

This is a hotel I will return to for service and comfort . Exceptionally well trained staff. Attentive hotel staff guided and pleasantly assisted us during sudden power outage (the entire block went dark) , with minimum inconvience, so that we felt safe. Enjoyed watching pelicans and egrets from the hotels rear garden. Quality dining.

This was our second stay at this hotel. It is within walking distance of downtown Sarasota theaters and restaurants. It is also a short drive, or shuttle ride to St Armands Circle. The beach club is outstanding. A very quiet and private beach compared to others in the region.

My wife and I had the amazing experience of an extended stay at the Ritz while our home was being renovated. The Sarasota Ritz surpassed every other luxury hotel we have stayed in the past including other Ritz properties. Every detail is cared by a very efficient and friendly staff that pays attention to all our preferences, including Dean and...
