our first time to Sarasota and the hotel was just phenomenal. Friendliest staff, immaculately clean, wonderful accommodations, great restaurant, super shuttle to St. Armand's and Lida resort. I could not have been more impressed with everyone and everything. You surpassed my expectations! Thank you to you and your staff for a wonderful anniversary celebration and an overall perfect vacation.

My husband and I grabbed a quick staycation at the Ritz Carlton Sarasota for his 50th. While we only live 25 minutes away, we felt like we were on an island without a concern in the world. The hotel staff is beyond friendly, attentive and professional. We had a great suite that gave us extra room and an extra half...

This has been our favorite hotel since 2002. The remodel and change of restaurants dramatically changes the atmosphere in the hotel. It has lost its refinement and has become much more casual. It is still a great hotel for families and the Beach club is amazing.

Ritz Carlton Sarasota and the Ritz Carlton Beach Club is a beautiful property with amazing service. Will definitely be back! Shuttle service to the beach and St Armand's Circle made it. Easy to get around.

1st time at the Sarasota location. All staff we encountered was so happy to please us - especially since it was Christmas and they had to work. I would not hesitate to return. The rooms were very clean. Jack Dusty's (restaurant) had terrific food. Visited the hotel's shop on the way out. Very large with a lot of inventory.

I've only stayed in one RC but now that SPG and Marriott are merging I can see myself staying there more frequently. We used the bikes, the spa, beach club and game room, all were great add ones to the exemplary service. Would definitely go back!

First time staying at Ritz Carlton in Sarasota, and first time staying at Ny Ritz Carlton for extended stay. From soup to nuts, beginning to end, Ncole, the concierge, helped with suggestions and accommodations for dinners. Everything was smooth sailing. All fitness center classes, fabulous. Kelli and Maleeka are wonderful instructors. Beach Club anticipates your every need. If possible will...

My sixth Ritz stay this year and by far the top staff I have experienced. Hans is the best bell man ever! Nicole took care of us at concierge and took great care of us. The beach resort makes it work and was an excellent addition to our stay. We will Be back.

My family and I have high expectations on the Ritz brand; this one does not live up to the Ritz reputation. A nothing special hotel in a nothing special location. Club level only offers guest access to the lounge and its anmmenities. My family has come to expect 'club level' to mean light food, apetizers, drinks, special attention, perks, and...

Dear P8835XAjeffm, Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to hear that our facilities did not meet your expectations. All of our registered overnight guests do indeed have access to our on-site tennis courts and Beach Club located 3 miles from the Hotel on the Gulf of Mexico. Please accept my sincerest apology if this was not properly...
