The Ritz Carlton Sarasota stay was excellent and everyone greeted us and thanked us " My pleasure". It was our pleasure staying at the Ritz and we will definitely return first chance possible for another stay.

Our two days at the Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota was amazing. We couldn't have been treated any better or been more comfortable. The attention to every detail of our stay by the hotel staff was impeccable. From the turn down service staff in the evening, to Lori, the poolside manager, every hotel employee was cheerful and fully focused on our comfort and... More

We have been staying at the Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota every Christmas holiday for about 6 years. During this time we have come to know some of the staff quite well. Not only do they remember us and greet us with warm welcomes when we arrive, but they remember our children, their likes, dislikes and ask about events they remembered from... More

The Ritz Carlton Sarasota is a very good hotel. We just stayed there for Memorial Day Weekend - 5/24 - 5/26. The hotel was crowded on Sunday and Monday, but it never felt overwhelming. The Beach Club is about a 5 minute drive away from the hotel. The Beach Club is awesome. Definitely the best part of the hotel. The... More

From the warm, friendly greeting at the front door, to the perfect rooms and extreme attention to detail, this is the place to be. The health club is first class, and the "beach club" is fabulous for water, sand, food and fun. This is one of my favorite hotels in the United States.

Whether you are planning a conference or a family or couples' vacation, the Ritz Carlton does not disappoint! The hotel offers a great restaurant, fabulous beach and pool, but it is so close to so much. Armand Circle in Sarasota offers a plethora of shopping and eating opportunities. There are museums and golfing available at a short distance.

My husband brought me here for Mother's Day for four days. Was our first time to Sarasota and the Ritz Carlton. They welcome you with champagne , which is a nice touch! Maybe what this hotel could improve with is the "welcome gift" for those who are eligible? The staff is very nice and ready to make your stay a... More

We are in the hotel industry as well, so we thought we were getting the best bang for our buck! However, the service at this specific ritz was NOT helpful what so... More
