This was our first visit to Sarasota, Florida, and we will definitely return! We stayed for a week. This RC location has great views of the bay and ocean. The restaurant service and food were excellent, and patio seating was very pleasant. The pool at the hotel main location is a bit small, but good if you're looking for something...

Great location, superb staff. Shout out to Bryan at the pool for perfect seat selections. Hard to find a fault anywhere on property. That staff on the 8th floor was amazing. Felt like being at home. They knew your name immediately and were as friendly as any young group I have ever encountered in a hotel. Valet staff was equally...

We love the Sarasota Ritz Carlton. We travel extensively and have stayed in some of the world's finest hotels. Though it is smaller in size than others of similar caliber, it surpasses most when it comes to the level of service provided to its guests. From the moment of check-in guests are treated like VIPs by the attentive staff. An...

Great location and steps away from Saint Armand's circle with nice boutiques and a great choice of restaurant. The service we received at the hotel was exceptional and the attitude of all the staff was genuine and they care. The bed was very comfortable and the room very clean. Just wished that the swimming pool had more exposure to the...

This is by far the best hotel in the area. The beds and linens, the food and the service are exceptional. The property itself is freshly updated and well appointed....And they accept pets! It is located near St Armand's Circle and has its own beach club.

We spent the first four days of our Honeymoon at the RC Sarasota, expecting an incredible experience and were not disappointed. The back of the house departments traditionally get little attention from reviews, but in our case they all played an important part in our experience. From the first interaction with the valet service, it was a whirlwind of exceptional...

I haven't been here for years, so I'm not sure when they changed it up, but it is gorgeous. The old bar is gone, and it's much more of a multi-experience big space with lots of nooks, and a great outdoor space overlooking the marina and pool with heaters - and blankets!. The food and service is wonderful, as is...

Lovely hotel in downtown Sarasota. The staff considers every need from the champagne at check-in to the wonderful ideas from the Concierge. The Beach Club at Lido is a lovely addition to the property. Food at the restaurants was top notch.
