Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota

(800) 241-3333

Overlooking Downtown’s marina on Sarasota Bay, just across the Ringling Causeway from the city’s charming theater and dining district, the towering Mediterranean-style hotel—housed on the first eight floors—is a great choice for couples, business travelers, and families. Trademark Ritz-Carlton service and style abounds, from the grand classically appointed lobby public rooms to marble bathrooms. The hotel’s marquee restaurant, Verona, serves organic Floridian specialties. There’s also a fitness center and state-of-the-art Europe-style spa, complete with whirlpool, sauna, and private terrace, in additional to a heated outdoor pool. Guests enjoy access the hotel’s private family-friendly beach club—just a short shuttle ride away—on scenic Lido Key, and a Tom Fazio-designed golf course. The hotel is a smart choice for travelers looking to blend a resort experience into a city stay.
