    The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota
    Sarasota, FL
    5.0-star Hotel Class
    Lovers of the Ritz-Carlton brand are very much impressed by the Sarasota, Florida, version. Even though they've come to expect top-notch service, plush rooms and classy ambiance from these properties, travelers still can't stop gushing over the excellent customer service and the close attention to detail. At this Marriott-affiliated property, accommodations impress with amenities like private balconies, goose-down pillows and 55-inch flat-screen TVs. The resort also boasts an 18-hole, Tom Fazio-designed golf course (15 miles off-site). For non-golfers, The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota provides tennis courts; but if you'd rather kick back and relax, you'll also find a pool, a spa and a beach club. (The property's $37 daily resort fee covers the 3-mile shuttle ride to the beach.) At the end of the day, recent travelers said a meal at Jack Dusty, the resort's popular seafood restaurant, is a must. You'll find The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota on Ritz-Carlton Drive alongside Sarasota Bay. Plus, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points by staying here.

Recent guests especially praise the ambient pool area and stylish guest rooms. To enhance your stay, past travelers suggest requesting a room on a higher floor for optimal views.

However, some past guests noted high prices at both eateries. Another bonus for Hyatt loyalty program members: Participants can use or earn points here to enjoy complimentary perks.
