My wife and I stayed at the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota for three nights in March, 2012. This is a beautiful hotel, both inside and out, and has all the amenities that one expects from Ritz-Carlton. The Ritz-Carlton is by the bay, but is not on the beach. It runs a shuttle every hour to the Ritz-Carlton Beach Club on the beach (which is several miles away). The shuttle also stops in St. Armands going to and from the Beach Club. This tiny and very attractive village has great shopping and great restaurants. The beach is an excellent swimming beach, and the Beach Club provides, free-of-charge, towels, beach lounges, and beach umbrellas for hotel guests. You can change into your bathing suit in their locker room, and then shower and change back into your street clothes when you are done. You can eat in their restaurant – indoors or outdoors overlooking the beach, and you can also eat at the bar or at pool side. This is a really attractive facility, and the beach club staff was very helpful in showing us where everything was. The hotel itself is also a very nice place to spend time, and we did spend one entire day at the hotel, swimming in the pool, and eating in the outdoors part of their informal restaurant, where we had a really great meal in a most attractive setting. We really enjoyed ourselves here.
