Rooms & Rates
Travel + Leisure calls this towering Mediterranean-style Ritz-Carlton a "smart choice" for travelers looking for a resort experience with the added perks of a city stay. Across the causeway from Sarasota's theater district, the hotel is appointed with marble floors, fine artwork and fresh-cut flowers. Guest rooms are decked in rich fabrics in seaside-inspired hues and feature pillow-top bedding, down duvets and sumptuous marble bathrooms with dual vanities.
The waterfront Jack Dusty restaurant focuses on fresh and local seafood dishes, as well as craft microbrews, and in-room dining is available 24 hours. Guests can take a shuttle to the resort's nearby private beach club, which features a semi-casual restaurant with indoor, alfresco and pool- or beach-side dining options. The Beach Club also features a luxe full-service spa. Guests gather on the beach each evening to watch the sunset, hoping for a peek at a "green flash" rumored to occur as the sun disappears into the Gulf.
Guests also have access to a private 18-hole golf course that incorporates 12 picturesque lakes and rolling hills, located about 13 miles from the hotel; there's a restaurant and bar on site.
