An older, renovated property, in a sketchy part of town, right by the airport & the Ringling museum. On the plus side, the staff were very nice and the room was large. But the shower didn't work, which you don't find out until you need it. Like other Courtyards, breakfast is purchased, prepared and served by two very overworked staff,... More

My family stayed here for a business trip for a long stay.The room was just OK. We have stayed in much larger rooms for the price. It was an average size room, but very very clean. Sofa bed is a nightmare.... The staff was fabulous, very accommodating. I never saw a staff member that did not greet you or say... More

Front desk was friendly and responsive to our needs.Rooms are spacious and clean. Pool and patio a pleasant oasis. Convenient location -- near airport, shops, major highways and not far from downtown.

We came when they were having a HUGE soccer tournament and were extremely nervous with all the kids running around that we were in for a loud stay. The hotel staff did an excellent job keeping all in line and we never heard a peep. The pool is nice and we really enjoyed the outdoor area with the fire pit... More

I booked a room for 1 night about 7 months ago, and had to settle for quite a high price, given the lack of availability of hotel rooms in Sarasota for the March 15 weekend. When I arrived, I was greeted kindly by the host. Everything seemed well. When entering the room, it had a really strong smell of dampness,... More

I travel here often for business and appreciate how inviting and gracious everyone is. I always get a kick at how Jane in the bistro checks on me when I'm getting food and asks if i have everything I need in my room. How near that all the staff are focused on service everywhere you go!!

Hotel is across the street from Sarasota airport. Nice property and staff was outstanding and very helpful with local recommendations. Jane in the bar was exceptionally nice – thanks! Rooms were nice but had a slightly different design from other Courtyards. The AC unit in 104 did not seem to work that well but it was not uncomfortable. The shower... More

I wanted to take a minute and apologize for the issues you had with the room being dusty and the drain being clogged. This is not typical of the housekeeping staff. I can't tell what room you were in so I am not able to address it with the housekeeper directly, but I will speak with maintenance about it. Again,... More

I stay a Marriott hotels all over the country, and this hotel is exceptional. The rooms are very nice, and the location convenient for my needs.
