For the price, there should have been breakfast included and better television programming. Overall a very average property. Would stay at the Springhill suites up the road over this hotel. Not near any good restaurants nor shopping. This is more of a layover hotel than a vacation. Destination.

Nice hotel right accross from the airport, you could literally walk there. We rented a car ( easiest airport to navigate). Drove to siesta key beach which was 10 minutes away. Loved the area, hotel had pool ,& heated Jacuzzi. Room was a standard Marriott, breakfast was ok, our tv was smashed and we could only see one side of... More

The property was well maintained. The rooms were clean, and the service was friendly. Upon arriving in our room, the phone rang. It was the front desk asking if everything was in order. Nice touch. The room had a fridge and a coffee maker. My only complaint is the wall unit AC. I just don't care for them. But they... More

It's ok, nothing near it to eat, the shuttle runs only 7am til 11 pm. There is no microwave in room. You have to go to lobby to use microwave . Rooms are ok . Nothing screams stay here, nothing says go away .its just ok.

Dear Guest - I wanted to take a moment and follow up on your trip advisor review. I apologize if there was something specific that made you feel the hotel is "just ok". We strive with all our guests to make sure they have a stay that exceeds their expectations. Obviously we did not do that for you. If there... More

I had a great experience with both Jane and Shirley at the front desk and restaurant. They were very welcoming and eager to make my stay a great experience, fantastic service all around. They both went out of their way to make the stay enjoyable.

As Lifetime Platinum Marriott members we always go out of our way to stay at Marriott properties because of the excellent service we usually receive. Not at this hotel. From the moment we walked into the lobby, the service at this Courtyard was off the charts awful. The check in staff were so busy talking amongst themselves that they did... More

I remember this incident and as I explained to you on the phone, when the room was cleaned, after you checked out, there was nothing but a bag of trash. You indicated a bag was left that had your watch in it, but we did not find anything fitting your description. I'm sorry you feel that my housekeeping staff robbed... More

Great location across the street from the Ringling Museum of Art. Room big enough to be comfortable for two and good sized refrigerator. Big surprise when we stopped in the lobby bar and ordered two glasses of wine. The tab was over $18. The wine wasn't THAT good. Staff was friendly throughout the hotel.

Amy Vigil Asst GM at the Courtyard is all about service with a smile and so was Jean at the Bistro bar. Made me feel right at home. Room very clean and comfortable. I will always come back and stay at this hotel whenever i am passing thru Sarasota. Thanks Amy and Jean for your kind hospitality. Best - Nicholas
