This was our third visit to the Ritz Carlton Sarasota. The valets continue to welcome us warmly as does reception for check-in. I tried the mobile check-in while we were en route and it worked a charm - the front desk manager simply took a swipe of our credit card and handed me an envelope with the keys already prepared...

I've stayed here a few times. It is clearly the best option in Sarasota, and a really nice hotel. Somethings are terrific, others ok, and some, just terrible.

I arrived at this hotel with my 2 children (10 & 13) for a short break, and we were not disappointed.the staff were attentive and we received a complimentary sea view upgrade, the bellhop was very helpful. The beach club being away from the hotel is a novel idea, and though a slight inconvenience the attitude of the staff there...

We have stayed here multiple times for business purposes. The Ritz Carlton Sarasota is a great destination. Enjoy the venue! Slow down your pace and enjoy the beautiful amenities such as the Beach Club, the water equipment, the Fitness Center, etc. Water is freely given out poolside, in the fitness center as well as the doormen. Infused water is also...

We enjoyed our stay at the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota but the unusual nature of having to drive or take a bus to their beach club is the only drawback. It's not too far, but why didn't Ritz-Carlton place the hotel above the wonderful Beach Club instead of reserving that space for pricy condos? The pool at the hotel location is fairly...

Wonderful property in Sarasota area. We enjoyed a nice weekend and the signature Ritz attention to details during our short stay. From welcome cookies in the room to toys for the younger guest. The beach club although packed on a Saturday afternoon was very nice and a good compliment to the main hotel.

We visited for 12 nights in July . On arrival we were a little disappointed that the club room we usually upgrade to was now £100 extra per night and that there was now a 'resort fee' of $24 per day, any way we love the hotel and club level so we just agreed and went for a drink in...

I have stayed at this hotel many times, but I must say that this visit was better than all those in the past. It is clearly apparent that the staff have really stepped it up. The service has been excellent, from the restaurants to the car valets, they are all very friendly and cannot be more helpful. The concierge could...

This is the most expensive property in the Sarasota area. While the service is good (not great), the rooms are seriously in need of renovation. While not quite shabby, they are clearly dated, both in terms of their decor and their technology. However, the biggest problem is food service. Like many of today's hotels, it has only one restaurant, Jack...
