I have stayed at many Ritz Carlton’s. However, I had never stayed at this one. When I arrived, the valet guy asked if we were sure we were staying at the Ritz?! We said “yes.” He eventually pulled over a luggage cart. My mother and I had to transfer our luggage all by ourselves. We get to the room and we were under-whelmed. It was very outdated. It really needs a renovation. The grout in the bathroom between the marble was dirty, the paint was chipping, and the bathroom door handle was falling off. We ordered room service. My filet was cooked perfectly, but it was so small. I think no more than 5 ounces. My mother got the fish tacos. The grouper was really over cooked and inedible. We had breakfast downstairs the next morning. I ordered the eggs Benedict. They use way too much cooking oil and butter. The asparagus was drowning in it. This was such a shock because the Ritz food is remarkable and this food was just average. Our room was on the seventh floor and at 7:30 am we were awoken by lawn maintenance lawn mowers and leaf blowers! It was awful. Why would you have your maintenance crews do that so early in the morning? Most people staying in a hotel of this caliber are on vacation and want to sleep in. I was there for business and did not have enough time to voice my concerns or complaints. I definitely do not recommend this Ritz Carlton and will never come back.

Beautiful htoel

Pros: Clean, proximity to beaches and shopping.
Lovely Hotel. Great location. Nice view form our room. Room was decorated nicely and very clean. Staff was very friendly and often anticipated your needs. Valet parking was great. Beach club was very nice. Too bad the beach has a lot of erosion. Hotel is near to St. Armand Circle which has nice restaurants and shops. Hotel is near Siesta Key Beach which is a must to spend the day! I would go back!
