Our Room was beautiful, the staff was phenomenal, the food was to die for, and everything was exceptionally elegant. The club level was wonderful, and the private beach club is exceptional! By the way, everything is squeaky clean which is something very important to.

Really impressed with the new style of the old Ritz Carlton Sarasota. The renovations were spot-on. Loved the room style, and the new feel of the whole resort. It smells fantastic as soon as you walk in the front door and it makes you want to move right in! Everything in the room and bathrooms, spa and restaurant was sparkling... More

The Ritz truly lives up our expectations. From the beginning to the end of our stay. Felt like family there. The staff on the club level were exceptional. Remembered us from 5 months ago. Can't wait to go back.

They could not stop talking about the excellent service that they constantly received and how much they enjoyed the beautiful property.

Our stay at the Ritz in Sarasota was unplanned as we needed to evacuate from Miami because of Hurricane Matthew. However we absolutely loved the hotel which is luxurious, the service is fantastic (the staff can't do enough for you), the rooms are very well furnished with excellent facilities. The beds have a Tempur mattress topper so are extremely comfortable.... More

We spent a Friday, Saturday, Sunday at the Ritz. We felt the love on check in. Brandon was at the front desk and got us a beautiful view of the water. We had planned on experimenting some of Sarasota's finer restaurants but the hotel just wouldn't let us leave! Dinner first night and breakfast the next morning at Jacks. Service... More
