Everything was great, no wishes remain open. Couldn't be better. The only criterion: hotel isn't directly at the beach, free shuttle every hour. But great great Beach Club with great service, great beach, great pool. read hotel review

One of the best hotels in the USA

  • December 2012
We stayed in a couple of nights at the ritz-carton sarasota. We booked the club floor. Advantage are a bit nicer rooms and a lounge, in which you free drink (from water to champagne) and at certain times get something to eat (breakfast, lunch, etc.). The fitness center is well equipped, however already somewhat older and the equipment are very crowded. Every hour there was a free shuttle to the beach club. Here you can at the ritz -Carlton private beach, because the hotel only a pool without access to the beach. Caution: everything costs extra (umbrella 15 American ... Dollar, sunscreen 20 American Dollar, etc.)! Parking: there is only valet parking for 23 American Dollar/night with 'unlimited in/out'. The most important the guests were pleasant. Very discreet and sophisticated. Overall a great hotel of a high standard, if you the price want to pay for it! read hotel review
