Casual, comfortable, pretty room, valet parking, delicious brown bread baked in a can,very good service and very good food. A pleasure to dine there. Highly recommended despite the fact that it's located in a hotel.

It's The Ritz! The service is great as always! Accommodations very comfortable. Jack Dustys has a good selection for drinks, breakfast, lunch & dinner. I recommend for lunch or dinner the steak & cheese sandwich.

I was fortunate enough to stay a night at this property before a conference I attended began at another property near by. As usual, the property was fantastic for any standards set anywhere else. The staff at every turn was helpful, professional and made the stay flawless.

I stayed here for business and only one night but i wish i could have stayed longer to enjoy all the amenities. Staff was great and hotel was very clean and inviting. Location was perfect for Sarasota activities.

We had an amazing 5 nights there. the service is excellent. Our room had a wonderful view of the bay with balcony. The food was great. They give endless free bottles of water. Conference services top notch. The private beach club which is 10 minutes away on the ocean is a special treat. Big pools are in both locations. Wish...

One of the best Ritz Carlton's in the U.S.! Location is wonderful. Walking distance to great restaurants in Downtown. The Beach Club was the highlight for us. It is beautiful with great food and cocktails. The service at both the Beach Club and the hotel was outstanding. They also have a shuttle so we never had to use our car....

It really frosts me when you stay in a ritz carlton and the service and room are good, but the experience is ruined by the inconsiderate (drunk?) guests. The 1:30 AM dog barking/"catch" playing in the hallway OUTSIDE YOUR ROOM is really not what you expect. Sure you could call the front desk and 20 mins later they will attend...

We enjoyed our stay at this Ritz as we usually do with Ritz properties. My husband and I were in town for business and stayed a little longer to visit my mother in the area. The property is pretty but please note that the beach area associated with this Ritz is a 10 minute shuttle ride away. There is a...

The Ritz at Sarasota has fabulous views of the yacht harbor and city, and the most comfortable beds ever. Of course the service is Ritz-fabulous, warm and comfortable. Everyone who works there seems to really care that your stay is as special as it can be, and they really seem to like doing what they do. A great pool area,...

Nothing any more special than your average Hilton, Marriott, Sheraton. Small room, average amenities, indifferent staff. Not worthy of a Ritz-Carlton name. Extremely overpriced for what you get. Only benefit is access to Lido Beach Club.
