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. Keshia at the front desk has a wonderful smile and will do whatever it takes to ensure your check-in and room selection is just right. One morning during my stay, I... More

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. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. I even received a call after I checked in my room to ensure everything met my expectations in my room, which... More

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

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
