After a wonderful stay at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando a few years ago we thought we would treat ourselves to a special break at the Ritz Carlton Sarasota for a week. It is a nice property but we felt did let itself down in some areas. We used the jacuzzi in the pool area at the hotel one afternoon and found it to be very dirty with leaves and even cigarette butts! Also -very pricey extras-Internet and valet parking. These days free wifi is common place in towels and should be charged at $12 a day! Also it was not free in any public areas. Room service was hit and miss at times-at turndown being left 1 chocolate for 2 people in a double room struck us as odd!Also refilling the coffee and tea was hit and miss. Owe ver, The beach club area at Lido Key was wonderful- the pool staff provide Ritz service you would expect. The Hotel itself seems a little too concerned with wedding and business meetings rather than guests.
