Best hotel staff ever

Cincinnati, Ohio

We stayed at the Ritz in Sarasota last week over July 4th. Our experience the entire time was amazing. The staff in the hotel was great. We got our pictures taken by Mariah that came out awesome. We loved the beach club. The fireworks were amazing on the beach.But the most unforgettable part is when we were leaving my daughter realized she lost her blankie. It is something that she has had since birth from a family friend who passed away. She is now 13 and can not sleep without it. We figured it must have gotten mixed in the sheets when housekeeping cleaned our room. We were leaving very early the next day. I let the front desk know and they said they would look around. I then emailed the general manager and before you know it loss prevention was involved and did everything they could to find it. Not only did they find it they mailed it back with a story and pictures of things they did with it until they could mail it out. This is something we will NEVER forget and hold onto forever. Thanks again to all involved. We will definitely be back soon.

A very disappointing weekend getaway!

My family and I came to this location for a long weekend getaway and much to our surprise it was a very disappointing experience. We are loyal Ritz Carlton members so we decided to cash in some of our Platinum Elite points and try a new location. Unfortunately, this resort simply did not live up to the normal Ritz Carlton experience. When we arrived it was difficult to even find staff to help with bags, check-in, etc., and the staff we did encounter seemed kind of annoyed to have to help us. We also weren't even offered any of our Platinum Elite benefits, like a room upgrade. I know that may sound kind of petty, but we stay at the Ritz-Carlton frequently and this is supposed to be part of the benefit. Also, we stayed for 3 nights and our room was not cleaned at all until 7:00 p.m. on last night before checkout. I called the front desk multiple times to make sure it was cleaned and it just didn't happen. I made at least 4 trips down to the front desk to get waters and ask again to have a maid come, request towels, etc. Again, the staff seemed disingenuous and annoyed that we were asking for this service. When the maid finally came (first at 5:00 p.m. after we just returned to our room after being out all day), we asked if we could have 1/2 hour to change our baby, change clothes, etc. and she was very short and simply replied that she didn't have time to wait. Fortunately, she did come back and finally cleaned our room for the first time at 7:00 p.m., just in time for us to pack. This is a beautiful resort, but as I said it just did not meet our expectation for a Ritz Carlton. We frequent the Ritz Carltons at Reynold's Plantation, Orlando and Amelia Island and this resort was just not of the same caliber. We won't be coming back to Sarasota again any time soon.
