Really a very nice place to stay. The room was a spacious suite- an outer room that led into an inner one with a nice bedroom and bathroom and separate sink area. We only had one queen bed in the bedroom . The outer room had a pullout couch / living room area as well as a kitchen area with... More

I usually stay at a Residence Inn or vacation rental when traveling, earning Silver Elite status. My experience at this Residence Inn was sub par , to say the least. I left home for the airport at 3 am and arrived in Tampa at 9 am (only direct flight the airline offered). Though tired, I ended up driving around and... More

Thru a mix-up in signals I ended up here at this Residence Inn and thank goodness. It was very nice. They have done a completer restoration at this hotel. It is about 20 years old, but you would never know it. It is very clean, quiet and spacious. The evening dinner was good, hamburgers. The morning breakfast was very good... More

The one bedroom unit was worth it to us, to give us more room. There is also a fold out couch in the unit--which is smartly decorated. The unit has a full fridge, stove top, dishwasher, and microwave, and two TVs. We've stayed in the two-bedroom units elsewhere and they are amazing if you want to really spread out. The... More

Located nearby airport and is convenient for late arrivals. Friendly front desk employee and standard Residence Inn amenities, happy hours, free Wifi and free breakfast included. Spacious Studio includes kitchenette. We liked beer offered during happy hour "Shock Top" Belgian White.

I booked a one bedroom suite for the weekend. It has a bedroom separated by a door from the kitchen livingroom area. The decor looks clean and modern. The bathroom is a little worn and I wouldn't take a bath (only shower safe) but that's ok. I love residence inn because of the kitchen. I like being able to cook... More

A nice 4 day visit.. But the front desk, with over three weeks notice, couldn't assign us a room that met our profile/reservation needs. Property was clean and efficient...and we love the fact that Residence Inns are pet friendly..since we miss ours when we are away from them it is great to see the wonderful well behaved pets that are...

Stayed at this hotel for a business trip. Room was comfortable and clean. AC worked well. If you are traveling with children, the kitchen is a plus. Only got 3 stars, as the hotel needs a bit of updating. Cabinets in the room show a lot of wear. Carpets in room also very worn. Fitness room is tiny and very... More

If you are Marriott loyal, then this is a good option when traveling to Sarasota. It is right across the street from the airport, and next to a Courtyard that is pretty comparable. We tried to get a little closer to the downtown and St. Armands Circle area, but the closest thing was a Hyatt for large name brand hotels.... More

We've been to the Sarasota area many times and love Lido Key. We usually stay at Marriott properties and were aware of the Residence Inn across from the airport. It's not on the beach, but a 10 minute easy drive to St. Armand's Circle and Lido Key. If you're not familiar with Residence Inn's, they are really designed for long... More
