“Great location, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

I spent four nights last week at the Sarasota Courtyard near the airport. The location was great, I had a class at New College of Florida, just a short drive away. The hotel does offer a shuttle too if you are a guest and need to go within a 5 mile radius. Hotel staff were very friendly, room was clean, and relatively quiet being near the airport. Stayed on the 3rd floor. Bistro on the first floor offers breakfast, had a great breakfast sandwich to go. Starbucks coffee too. They offer light dinner fare, but did not try. Ample parking, short drive to shopping and restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from elevator and ice machine.

Jane was the lovely bartender/waitress that waited on us. She was pleasant, patient, and overall very accommodating. She made our visit a pleasurable experience :) It was a very nice hotel overall and clean.

Had a chance to stay here recently for work and family. Very quiet and relaxing room. The beds are very comfortable. Enjoyed eating at the Bistro. My family appreciated the shuttle to get food when I was working in Tampa.

Room Tip: Pick an upper level room overlooking the pool.

Just experienced a good enough stay to warrant a 5-star review. Amenities and overall quality of hotel was really nice. Can tell it's a brand new property with all the conveniences in play for the frequent traveler. Here's why I'm giving them 5-stars... 1st night was amazing. Quiet and comfortable. 2nd night the hotel was invaded by a swarm of families with teenagers who LITERALLY rode bikes and skateboards through the lobby and down the hallways attached to my room. I called the desk to alert them and they were already a step ahead moving guests to a different building where it was much quieter. Apparently a block of rooms had been sold to this group and it made more sense to reorganize logistically. For such a young staff, the folks handled this nightmare with grace. I'm still amazed.

We love staying here while visiting family in Sarasota. The check in process is always smooth and pleasant. The suites are a decent size and they are always more then happy to accommodate our extra pillows request!

Everything from reception and the extra foam pillows to the wonderful swimming pool oasis and hot tub was a delightful surprise. The top was the restaurant since I was too tired to go out. It was excellent and the friendly and personal service from Jane was pampering. She was a master of preparation and served everything hot or cold as it should be ... I have stayed in many business class hotels and Marriott knows how to do it right!

I recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room NOT overlooking the pool if you want a very quiet atmosphere ...
