Was in Sarasota to move our daughter to college. Staying at the Ritz made this a great weekend - we'll be back whenever we are in town. The service was excellent and the new restaurant/ patio area offers a great view of the sunset and a really nice menu. The mermaid on top of the bar Saturday nights was the...

Recently stayed a Saturday night while in town. Staff was very nice throughout the hotel from valet, to front desk, to bartenders. Property is very nice, situated downtown, near shopping, restaurants and the water. Rooms are a little small and dated, but nonetheless, very comfortable, large bathroom, and balcony with a view of the water and seating for breakfast was...

Room with a view was requested. They put us facing downtown initially, but changed it to a view of the Gulf the next day. Room 208 was okay, would have enjoyed a higher floor with a better view. Pool was welcoming, and right off the bay. I cannot complain about the staff and customer service - both top notch. Valet...

We stayed here for a week, the service and the beach club was amazing!! One area for improvement would be the pool at the beach club it was very very rough which cute me over 5 times!! But except from that minor disruption its well worth the money and it was a fantastic week well spent!

The Ritz in Sarasota is perfect to just relax and enjoy the beautiful grounds. The pool is peaceful and the spa is great. If you can stay in a club suite that is an added luxury. The fairly new Jack Dusty restraunt is good with a laid back atmosphere .Take in your surroundings and enjoy your stay. I always do

We had booked a two night getaway and were able to get a pretty good package which included breakfasts and $125 credit with the parking and resort fees waived. Had requested a higher floor but opted to have one of the renovated rooms so we were on the third floor. The room was beautiful, absolutely no view but the service...

This hotel is undergoing a "re-imagination" aka renovation, which is much needed. The hotel is nice, but the renovation will make this hotel unbelievably nice. Request a renovated room upon making a reservation if booking the hotel prior to Nov/Dec 2015. I believe the rooms will all be completely renovated by the end of 2015. The hotel was very proactive...

My wife and I stayed 2 nights and absolutely loved it. Of course I read the negative reviews first and got nervous. We had a few very minor hiccups but nothing to keep us from returning. I heard about all the construction but never noticed. We had a room that was not remodeled but it was in excellent condition. We...

We spent 4 nights at this hotel and was there for the July 4th celebration. The staff were very friendly and accommodating . Food was great. beach club was very nice and amazing service.. We were a bit disappointed with the food at Jack Dusty restaurant at the hotel. Overall a great experience and we will definitely go back.

Spent four nights in June at this resort. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Loved the pool right at the hotel for convenience. Be sure to order the Lobster Roll sandwich off the pool menu -- the BEST! The Beach Club is a 10 minute free shuttle ride away. I am not a beach/sand person, but the staff wait...
