We started off on the right foot with an early check in where they had a room ready for us. She gave us a room w a balcony bc she knew we were on a family vacation. That was a very pleasant and nice gesture. Our room overlooked the pool. The room was very big and completely updated. The beds... More

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The bistro was very nice and the prices were fairly reasonable. Room was spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Location was convenient. Close to the airport and about 10 minutes from St. Armand's Circle.

To potential bookers, future customers of the Courtyard Sarasota, I'm staying here tonight at the hotel and booked 2 king rooms, each with a sofa sleeper. When I arrived, we were greeted with 2 king rooms, sans-sofa sleepers. After pointing this out to the front desk, calling with customer service for 1 hour, the GM at the hotel has kindly... More

Overall I was very happy with my experience at the Courtyard. The beds were wonderful. I'd give it a 4. However Jane I the Bistro goes above and beyond for you and makes the stay memorable. The NHL and NBA Finals were on during my stay and Jane went out of her way to provide concierge level service all week.

I've stayed at a lot of Courtyards across the US and this is one of the nicer ones. What sets this place apart is the friendly and helpful staff.

I stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott in Sarasota, FL for one night while on a business trip. The hotel is conveniently located across the street from the airport and easily accessible.

Pretty standard Marriott Courtyard fare, but with a nice pool area and in a tranquil setting. Everything seemed very clean, and there are good walking options nearby. While it is described as an 'airport location' I didn't feel as though I was adjacent to an airport, i. e. No noise and traffic. Met my needs exactly and I would definitely... More

I have stayed here before and have been pleased with my experience. As a rule, I like Marriott Coutyard properties, but this time it was a let down. Big problem was my key didn't work. Even though each key worked the first time, it didn't work the next time. So that meant me slepping back down to the desk and... More

Though this hotel is right by the airport, you wouldn't know it as there was no aircraft noise at all. It is a little dated looking inside, the rooms are perhaps ready for a refurb, though we appreciated the size of our double double room. The staff we encountered at the reception desk were very friendly and helpful. We did... More

Thank you for the positives comments you shared regarding your stay. We unfortunately have no control if something breaks down. We had the pool company order the part that was needed right away, but there was a delay due to the Easter holiday. It was fixed as quickly as possable. I do apologize for the situation.

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
