We were visiting friends in Bradenton and, since we love the Residence Inns, we stayed at the one in Sarsota. This inn has it all - location, great staff, nightly get-together's that include food from local pubs in the area, nice pool area and...did I mention - terrific staff (they really make all the difference in the world). Anyway, stepping... More

We spent 6 nights at this Residence Inn and overall, were very pleased. Thom welcomed us with fine introduction to the hotel and an efficient check-in. Our two bedroom, two bath suite was very clean, tastefully decorated, and well kept, as was all the public areas. With the exception of the woman who handled the breakfast buffet, the staff was...

The hotel is typical of this brand. It is older than some and does show that. The exercise room is small for the size of the hotel (only 2 tread mills and an elliptical) and could use some attention as the TV did not work on one of the machines and the air conditioning is suspect. The rooms and common... More

We recently stayed for two weeks. We can not say enough starting with the staff, the breakfast, the social evenings, the room. There was not one thing we could have requested that someone was not willing to do or find for us. Jordon was at the desk when we first arrived....a great young man looking to be very accommodating and... More

We were here last January for a short stay and decided to come again when we found ourselves again in the area. Same great experience..what more can you say? The staff is friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable and very spacious. Exactly what I have come to expect, but it's nice to see that they deliver! I would do it... More

I checked in at the Residence Inn, Sarasota, FL airport location & I was greeted by Brianna Lyons, who checked me in. She was so nice and accommodating and helped me find a quiet room as I'm a light sleeper. She called my room to make sure everything was fine after I checked in as well. The hotel's happy hour...

My wife and I were attending a concert and exploring the Sarasota area for the first time. We stayed at the Residence Inn for one night. The Inn is conveniently situated, not far from the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center, the Ringling Museum, St. Armonds Circle and other area attractions. We first need to commend Brianna, the front desk clerk,... More

Cable TV not working properly during our entire 4-day stay. This was during the football playoff games. Staff said it was hotel wide and kept blaming it on the cable company. However, hotel engineer came up once and fixed in a few minutes. That worked for one evening, then same problems returned.

We regret those occasions when we do not meet your expectations and have maintenance failures that take multiple parties involvement to correct. Unfortunately, our tv satellite did have issues a few weeks ago interrupting the viewing on several channels. We apologize and hope to better serve you in the... More

Just stayed the one night mainly because the social hour was discontinued for that week. I hate to say it but we choose the Residence when we are traveling a lot because we can eat a heavy lunch and then eat light at the social hour and not have to go out every night. Instead there was s'mores around the... More

Thank you for your recent stay with us! Marriott did choose our hotel and 2 others the week you stayed for a "social test pilot". Marriott is looking at changing the social program and a further pilot will take place this fall. We are looking forward to the change. Come back and see us!! More

Spent 6 nights here, and loved every one of them! Full breakfast buffet was different every morning. Heated pool and spa were just what the kids wanted. Really liked the spacious room, had a full kitchen as well. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Would definitely stay here again!!
