“Very good stay at the Ritz Carlton Sarasota”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

Something that is always incredible at the Ritz is the service provided by the staff at all levels. From the time you step in the hotel to the time the valet brings your car up and loads your car when you leave, the service and professionalism of the staff is superior.
I would have given it an "excellent" review as opposed to "very good" for two reasons - Obvioulsy, the hotel is trying to cut cost. The first one was the lack of choice as to the paper delivered in the morning - the offer USA Today and nothing else it appears, and the second is that they stopped having a breakfast buffet in the new dining room. That to me was a major disappointment.
Otherwise, everything else was great

Great place to meet up with my American family. Staff were curtious and overall service very good. We arrived in the middle of a storm, but the next day it was bright sunshine. Great beach club service and cocktails outstanding and is well worth the trip. It was our anniversary and the hotel sent complementary chocolate strawberries and sparkling wine to our room. Food was also outstanding a thankyou to all staff.

I visited this property for a conference last month.(Sorry about the delay in review) I have stayed at another Ritz further down the road (Naples) and I must say that I was not wowed by this experience like the one down the road. It is a smaller location, so I had to factor that in after the experience, but the place had an antiquated feel to it. The bar serves alligator tail which I love and the drinks are decent. I was not impressed with the grits that came with my breakfast from room service. The Spa was nice though. Great service from the attendants....but the five diamond award should have gone to the other location if it didn't get it already.

Stayed at the ritz for 5 nights and I have to say overall the service was ok but not 5 star by any means . The valet parking is terrible if you are in a hurry good luck we waited for up 10 minutes for our vehicle and then wait 5 or 10 minutes more for all the vehicles blocking us to move.The staff are very friendly but the service in the outside terrace was terrible twice we sat down outside hoping to have a glass of wine and after sitting their for over 10 minutes with no service we got up and left The spa was fantastic probably the best part of the experience.Over priced for level of service provided

Just stayed here for 2 nights initially the room wasn't up to scratch and was quickly rectified by the front desk staff to a much nicer room on the 9th floor. We found the drinks to be eyewateringly expensive but the food which was excellent not so much.Have to mention the staff who were without exception very pleasant and unfailingly polite and always smiling.Would definitely return.

Great place to meet up with family and friends. Staff attitude and service, as well as the amenities, justified the cost. A bit of a hike (3+ miles) to the beach club but shuttle service is available and worth the trip. Same great service as in the main hotel.

Room Tip: City view probably not as nice as the gulf view, but not bad either. Little unusual to see a Hyatt...

As returning visitors to the RC in Sarasota we were delighted to be welcomed by name by the reception staff. I was allocated a room which was unfortunately next to a large air conditioning vent and therefore very noisy when on the balcony. I immediatly reported this problem to reception who responded by moving me to a new room without any hassle they also upgraded my room to a bayview suite. The Bayview Suite was an excellent improvement and I thank the reception staff for thier consideration. The amenities inside the room were of the highest quality, we could find no fault. We made good use of the RC Beach club where we were again welcomed by name and treated like old friends. The Beach Tikki bar again recognised me by name (radios are a wonderful invention) the food and bar service again of the highest class, both Summer and Pete are very professional in thier trade. Check out was easy and uneventful. Hotel was booked via Trivago £120 per night - Bargin for this quality of service.
