Fodor's Review

With a style that developers like to say is circus magnate John Ringling's realized dream, The Ritz is appointed with fine artwork and fresh-cut flowers. Its marble-floored hallways are softened with plush Oriental rugs. Rooms have marble bathrooms, and private balconies with views of the bay, the marina, or the downtown skyline. A private 18-hole Tom Fazio–designed golf course is 12 miles northeast of the property on the Braden River; guests can also lounge at the beach club three miles away on Lido Key. A Victorian-style spa and guest-and-members-only beach facility on Lido Key, about 4 miles away, make this city resort full-service. As far as dining goes, Jack Dusty serves creative local seafood dishes alongside handcrafted cocktails, and Bayview Burger Bar offers all-American favorites as well as unforgettable panoramic views of the gulf.
