Stayed here for a few days prior to our week in Bradenton/Longboat area. The entrance to the hotel is spectacular with beautiful marble and a group of friendly staff waiting to greet you. I cannot embellish the quality of service that sets the a Ritz apart. Our room was nice... Not as large or high-end as you may expect, but...

Arrived march 31st for one night. Booked an ocean view room and I'm also a gold marriott. We had to sit side by side on a small balcony to even see the water. No walk in shower...not sure why the price..very overrated in my opinion. Will not make this mistake again.

Dear Mgobril, Thank you for your review. I am sorry you were disappointed we are not located on the Atlantic Ocean on Florida’s East Coast and only offer Bay front and Marina views as water view options due to our downtown location adjacent to Sarasota Bay on Florida's West Coast. Please accept my sincerest apology for any inconvenience this misunderstanding...

Spoke to management. No worries everyone. There is a new policy, however, make sure you say something at check-in, you can opt out of the $28.00 Daily Resort Fee if you are not using what the $28.00 provides. This is great for business travelers who do not use the services. Upon check-in ask otherwise they will charge you. Be smart!...

On the positive side, the toilet seats had a very nice feature - slow motion so it could not fall hard and make noise. Without question the best feature of our stay. Regrettfully, that's it for the positive. The beds were quite lumpy and sheets "rough." We woke each of our 5 night stay with serious back-aches. The room was...

this is our fourth year at "The Ritz". Every year it just gets better and better. The staff is amazing and always seems to remember us! The pool, the Beach Club, the location, the shuttle-they think of everything and cater to everyone's needs and wants. Can't say enough about The Ritz Carlton Sarasota!!!!

Stayed here for a week during a work retreat. Room was pretty standard but the small touches are what set Ritz apart. Staff (the ladies and gentlemen) are always on hand to greet you with a warm smile and quickly respond to any questions or requests. The Asprey toiletries are also a very nice touch. A close walk to many...

The hotel is very nice, but the stay was impressive due to the staff. The Doormen were great and always willing to help. The housekeeping staff did a wonderful job.

Stayed at the Ritz Carlton during the Sarasota Half Marathon Weekend.
