Stayed here for two days last week and I was so impressed with this property. We stayed on the 8th floor concierge floor and it was so very perfect. Beds were great, bathroom was fantastic and the view of the bay so pretty. The service was excellent and very attentitive. We

This was my second time at the Ritz Sarasota and from the moment I walked in the front door I knew it was a good decision. The smell of everything there is incredible. What makes this the best place to stay in the area is the combination of city hotel, right on the bay front,

The lady who greeted us was inconsistent with respect to service she provided. Brought champagne to some guests but not others.The lady who checked us in on the front desk was equally as inconsistent. Definitely not up to Ritz-Carlton standards I have been accustomed to.

We stayed here for our anniversary. The room and hotel was a little underwhelming. The Beach Club was nice but you have to take a shuttle to get there. Dinner at the Beach Club was nice but the hotel stay wasn't worth the money.

I would not take my young children there. It's definitely geared to adults and business travelers. In fact there beach is a shuttle ride to Lido Beach which isn't far but why stay in the city environment with young children? I'd go stay closer to St Armands Circle, Lido or Siesta Key.

I loved my visit to Sarasota. I was not there during the red tide. However, the pool and other attractions in the area were lovely for me and a visit to the yacht club And local shops and stores. I would ask someone who manages fish and wildlife and ocean health for the government or the local tourist bureau.Or the concierge at the Ritz.

"views on north side; sunnier on south"
"ask for water view on high floor."
"Maybe rooms on the back side (not facing the front/port cochere) are quieter?"
"Club level looking over the Marina/Gulf"
"I recommend the club level. Breakfast, lunch and light dinner available all day long. Also, drinks are complimentary."
