Awesome Trip!

By: E&Jtravels


Reviewed on: 15 Oct 2013

What a wonderful trip! I was extremely impressed with the experience we had at the Ritz Carlton Sarasota. It was amazing how the staff knew our preferences and made suggestions based on them. We also received an extra special surprise in our room our first night thanks to our fabulous travel agent Gay! Loved all the special extras that she arranged for us! I won't suggest ever taking a trip without the support of our travel agent!

Lovely location - don't use car service

By: shevi

The Ritz-Carlton is a beautiful property. Rooms were lovely. The staff in Jack Dusty's (for breakfast) was attentive and quick. Prior to arrival, we had the concierge book a car service for an event. The price quoted was $400. The day before the event, we were informed that we would have to pay an additional $65/hour for the car to wait during the game. The concierge offered to renegotiate for us and got it down to a $100 wait fee. We were surprised to learn when we got in the car that it was a Ritz car service, so, apparently, the Ritz concierge was renegotiating with the Ritz car service. The driver dropped us off two blocks from the venue because he was unsure as to whether there was a drop off for limos and taxis (there is, I Googled it). For the same reason, he picked us up four blocks away at a local restaurant (29 degrees out). It would behoove the Ritz to research the drop off areas at a venue before they UPcharge $500 for car service - we felt taken advantage of.

One of my favorite hotels! The staff can not be beat - so attentive and helpful. They just seem to know what you might need before you even ask. Rooms are great - Spacious and well designed. The beach club is specular and the restaurants are great. Great views and fabulous food. This hotel should not be missed.
