I favor several hotel brands in certain parts of the world. It's The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota for a Florida beach location perfect for family fun and here's why:
The Sarasota, Florida airport is a short ride from The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota and serviced by several carriers. The hotel will pick you up by prior arrangement (fee) making it even easier for you.
The hotel’s Jack Dusty restaurant offers a beautiful breakfast but dinner is even more special with a seafood-focused menu that is creative and done right. Nearby the upscale-casual Shore on St. Armands Circle is great too. A free shuttle to this appealing area famous for shopping and dining is provided by the hotel.
The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota has a Ritz Kids (club) to keep the littles engaged. Or hop on the free scheduled shuttle to the Beach Club to enjoy a day at the kid-friendly pool or under an umbrella at the beach.
Enough sun? Visit the inspirational Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, or see the Ringling Museum’s depiction of a circus and encampment via thousands of handmade figures created by one man over 50 years, or tour the Ringling mansion Ca’d’Zan to see a gilded slice of life.
Parents should relax. Rooms redone in soothing ocean tones, an inviting Lobby, sleek Club Lounge and sparkling event spaces invite you to slow up. Swim in the pool or paddle a SUP or kayak on the bay.The Spa has created a package of several treatments to relax you, so take advantage of it.
For family fun,walk the Downtown Farmers Market. Don’t miss fresh-squeezed orange-strawberry juice from Jordan's Farm. For lunch; the locals’ favorite Nancy’s Bar-B-Q to get down with some of the best barbecue ever.
Sun, beach, and making family fun memories, it's all here in Sarasota.
