The hotel is located extremely close to the Bradenton/Sarasota Airport, and that makes it very easy to find. We stayed here for a night to recover after a long overseas business trip, and it was a great place to catch up on sleep and rest. Our room was not noisy, even though we were near the airport. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is not close to the beach, but it is near downtown Sarasota. I'd definitely stay here again.
