Guest reviews for The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota

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 It was very outdated.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!

Awesome Hotel close to Siesta Key Beach

Pros: Awesome service! Great pool area lots to do at the hotel. I had access to drinks to keep me hydrated. Inside my car, hotel, at the pool.
Location: I really enjoyed visiting St. Armand Circle it is without question a major tourist attraction. I love Siesta Key Beach. It's so relaxing.
I could not believe the wonderful treatment from all of the employees at the Ritz Carlton hotel. They really went out of there way to make this day special. The pool area is really nice and there are plenty of other activities on-site including canoe boats that you can get on that are located by the pool area. The hotel is close to all the main attractions and you don't have to drive far to get to Siesta Key Beach.

Courtesy and friendliness of staff was amazing.

Pros: We cannot adequately describe our pleasure and hospitality we received.
Cons: Nothing!. This is a very well managed hotel
Location: Centrally located to downtown Sarasota, it is also only 8 minutes drive from St Armands Circle and pristine beaches.
For anybody wanting pampering and over the top service, I would highly recommend the Ritz Carlton Sarasota. The Beach Club facility was a particular example of the pampering and service. We are planning further stays at this amazing hotel.

Top quality hotel gives top quality service.

Most impressive was the personal help we received when we needed it. We had checked out yesterday, planning to drive our rented car to the airport. But we discovered that the car was dead. It wouldn't start. Frantically, we returned to the hotel, and asked the concierge to help. Calmly, she took care of the whole thing - called the Car Rental people, reported the problem, took our keys to give them after we left....and arranged for a taxi to take us to the airport. Only a top quality hotel gives such personal service.
