“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Stayed overnight for a class for work being held there the next day. Checking was fast, friendly ans efficient, with the front desk person letting me request late check out for the next day with no problems at all.
Booked a suite and it was really spacious! Honestly, it was much bigger than my first apartment!! All very clean, and well maintained. Not a fan of hotel coffee and this was no different. The coffee in the room was pretty bad, but there's a cafe that serves Starbucks in the lobby. The only down side was the bed. It really wasn't very comfortable, just rock hard!
Didn't get the chance to use any of the facilities other than the lobby cafe, but I would stay there again if in the area.

Stayed here for 2 nights and was very disappointed by the mustiness of the room, hallways. Not fresh, not really clean and not up to Marriott standards. Breakfast limited and overpriced. I did like the location, perfect for walking or running along the river, going into town. Service ok but not particularly friendly or experienced.

Stayed at this hotel for Pirates spring training. Nice outdoor area that led to the riverfront walkway. Room was a decent size and clean. Employees were very attentive and always welcoming. I would definitely stay here again. The only downfall I would say is that breakfast is not included but there is a small eating area in the lobby that had pretty delicious breakfast sandwhiches and Starbucks coffee. Overall great experience while in Bradenton.

If you do stay here, don't bother to get a room with a balcony, you can't fit a chair on it, and if you're lucky like me (sarcasm) it will overlook a rooftop (I've submitted a picture of this). If I hadn't have been so exhausted from traveling all day I would have found a different hotel to stay at pronto. The bistro is way over priced. The lights flickered constantly, the air conditioner was loud, unlike most hotels I stay in there was no channel guide for the tv nor a list of restaurants that delivered to the hotel. The majority of the staff didn't seem very friendly either. Won't stay here again, and wouldn't recommend it.

I am a Marriott Gold member and this room was disappointing. Paid extra for the river view and balcony. It was not worth the money. I think the balcony no bigger than 18" wide. You could not put a chair on it. This is the first time I cancelled reservation when I saw the room.

I had the opportunity to stay here when I was working in the Tampa/Sarasota area. Perfectly located for my work at Manatee Memorial hospital. Friendly and accommodating staff was a plus. I highly recommend.
