My wife and I stayed at this Marriott Courtyard (I only stay at Courtyards) for 8 days. We found the staff to be very friendly and welcoming. There was never something that was a chore for them to do for you. The room was thoroughly cleaned each day by very friendly maid staff,
The restuarant left something to be desired. Not your regular Courtyard experience. I would vote for an overhaul of this part of the hotel offering. We chose this specific location because it offered a full menu dining option. Disappointing.
Overall I rated this hotel very good because aside from the restuarant I have nothing but high praise. Convenient to the Sarasota Airport, I-75, and Rte 41 (Tamiani Trail for Siesta Key, Venice Beach, Longboat Key).
