“Wonderful Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Stayed for 3 nights at the Courtyard in Bradenton on the River Walk. The hotel was very clean, rooms and bed very comfortable, quiet and has an extremely nice pool area. Directly off the pool area is the new River Walk with wide sidewalks along the river, nice landscaping and benches, perfect for a run or a stroll. The location is very convenient, less than a 5 minute drive to the South Florida Museum and Aquarium. But what really shines at this Courtyard are the staff. The front desk staff were always very friendly and helpful. Maria in the Bistro/Coffee Bar was very friendly and went above and beyond. Every staff member we saw greeted us and asked if we were enjoying our stay. Highly recommend staying at this property if you are in Bradenton.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has a balcony overlooking the pool area.

We stayed here for 4 nights while in town for a wedding. It appears to have been renovated in the past 5 years which made for a pleasant stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is some what convenient for using the riverwalk to get to the "downtown" area. The beds are extra firm. The pool could use a better filtration system. midway through the day you could see a nasty film floating in the gutters.

Room Tip: Apparently not all rooms come with a mini fridge. Ours had one, our friends did not.

We were part of a very large wedding party staying at the Marriott (a group that can get rather rambunctious, at times...although quite harmless). The staff at the hotel accommodated our every need, from keeping the bar/restaurant open early/late, to making sure our every need was taken care of, this place did it all. In particular, Ryan was constantly checking in with us to make sure we were completely satisfied.

The rooms were very clean and well stocked; the beds were comfortable, even the hide-away in the couch.

The location on the newly completed Riverwalk is a plus for anyone into running/jogging along the water and into Palmetto across the bridge.

I cannot recommend this property highly enough...if you're in the area, stay there!

We stayed here while attending a memorial service. Check-in was excellent as we were upgraded to a river-view king with breakfast coupons for only $10. Breakfast staff gave good service. Managers and others in the lobby asked if all was OK a little too often as they did not realize others had also asked.

Room Tip: Ask if room has good Wi-Fi connectivity as not all do.

The Courtyard is located in a great spot near the hospital and along the Manatee River. It has a great outdoor pool and courtyards for enjoying the evening. The lobby is comfortable with a small area for food, drink and coffee. It has a convenience store with the essentials. The rate I paid was typical for a Courtyard. The room was adequate size with a comfortable bed and working area. I'm a light sleeper and had a problem with the noise made by the air conditioner which was running constantly. I found it tough to get a full night's sleep.

Room Tip: Bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.

Staff/service was exceptional and I don't usually care about that. Hotel is clean and nice overall. Beds are AWFUL though!!! Very uncomfortable! Plus no mini-fridge and for the money there really should have been one (especially since there was no ice on my floor). Very good fitness center - really the best I've seen in a regular hotel. There's a small restaurant in the lobby. The food was good, but not much of a selection.

Dissapointing for what we paid. The beds are uncomfortable, there's no refrigerator or microwave in the room. The pool is not heated.
When we went to the Bistro restaurant for breakfast, it took 45 minutes for us to get the food, plus there was hair in my husbands eggs! There was a line of upset people that had been waiting on their breakfast. But, the staff were nice.
