I stayed 4 nights for a convention and I am truly disappointed with the experience at this hotel. I booked 4 rooms for our stay, with a total of 6 people (2 married couples, two singles.) Upon check in, the two single people were given rooms with a king bed, and the two married couples were initially given rooms with... More

Dear db719, Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you are disappointed with the marina and bay front views our Hotel offers. While it is true Sarasota is on Florida’s beautiful Gulf Coast and our Beach Club is directly on the Gulf of Mexico on Lido Beach, our Hotel is adjacent to the magnificent Sarasota Bay and only offers...

The beach club is a few miles away and the hotel coach takes you there once every hour. Not convenient at all. I will not stay here again. The location and the service not worth the money you have to spend to stay here.

I have stayed at the Ritz in Sarasota several times and have enjoyed my stay every time. We love the beach member services offered and the staff there is truly friendly and helpful. There is valet service or you can take the hotel shuttle to the beach area. Should you not be beach person, the pool is just as good.... More

My experience was marred by the lack of attention to the cleanliness of the pool facilities, particularly at the beach club, where I found the benches in the ladies changing rooms, really filthy dirty, I wrote to the Hotel on my return last week, & have had no reply, or any feed back from my Questionnaire I bothered to fill...

We went to the Sarasota Opera Festival two nights and stayed at the Ritz.-Carlton. We walked over to the performances. The weather was cold and windy, but they greeted us with champagne and chocolates and our suite was ready and waiting early on. Our two night stay enabled us to relax and go to the botanical gardens, Catholic church mass,... More

I enjoy this property often...have been here several times. Some highlights...the club staff is excellent...they have a dedicated concierge to make arrangements for you. The food in the club is very good, and they always vary their presentation so if you stay more than a couple of days, you are not eating the same thing over and over. Also, the... More

My friend and I spent 2 days at the Ritz Carlton sarasota. Beautiful hotel. Staff was very very nice. Rooms were really small and the beds were very uncomfortable. Hardly any amenities.
