The Ritz-Carlton is a luxurious hotel located on Florida’s west coast. This upscale locale overlooks Sarasota Bay and is steps away from dining and entertainment.

Some of the amenities and features guests will find here include an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Tom Fazio, a full-service salon, a fitness center, and over 260 guest rooms with personal balconies. Guests who own pets will be happy to know that this is a pet-friendly establishment. Those needing to tend to business matters can utilize this hotel’s business center and copy/fax services.

The hotel’s guest rooms contain many convenient amenities that make visitors feel at home. They possess tea/coffee presentations, a complimentary morning newspaper, and even a plush terry bathrobe if guests forgot to bring theirs.

When visitors want to see a play, a musical, or other theatrical performance, they can walk to facilities like the Florida Studio Theatre or the Sarasota Opera House. Those who enjoy reading can stop by the Friends of The Selby Public Library. Five Points Park is a small park located on North Pineapple Avenue and is a popular spot for people-watching or gazing at sculptures.

Because this hotel is based in the downtown area, guests are steps away from hip eateries like the nautical-themed restaurant/bar Jack Dusty and the coastal Lido Key Tiki Bar. There’s even an on-site golf club grille with a seasonal menu.

The Ritz-Carlton Sarasota is the ideal spot for guests regardless if they’re here for vacation or for business purposes. It has home comforts, a luxurious ambiance, and proximity to entertainment and restaurants.

8.3 Very good
Pros:I liked the amenities and the location of the Resort.
Cons:The beds sucked.. I stay in 4 and 5 star hotels only and for a Ritz the beds sucked, the sheets were not soft... and I always forget that the rate is inexpensive because they charge you mandatory resort fees per night at check out. Needless to say valet is $24 per day. I feel like I am flying on commercial airlines with the nickel and dimming. Just increase the price and make it all inclusive.
