    The sheets, pillows, bed were divine. The tv seemed HUGE. Personnel were above and beyond.

    Departing took a long time. Asked the desk to call for my car but not sure it was done. As I waited a long time and finally asked one of the valets to call for it again. It came right up.

About

Overview

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.
