Hilton Garden Inn Sarasota - Bradenton Airport
Ranked #22 of 51 Hotels in Sarasota
Reviewed November 6, 2011

Practically next door to The Ringling Museum Of Art, New College and SRQ Int'l. Airport, the Hilton Garden Inn is nicely located and set back from Tamiami Trail (US 41). Very quiet and spacious bedrooms, fantastic pool and whirlpool with pretty landscaping, beautiful lobby and decor is what this location offers its guests. Vibrant, downtown Sarasota and St. Armand's Circle at Lido Key, along with Lakewood Ranch Shops are all just a few minutes drive away. A perfect hotel to stay at while in the Sarasota-Bradenton area!

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the swimming pool.

I stay at this hotel at least one week each month. It is always a pleasure as soon as I arrive at the lobby to check in. The front desk recognizes me each time, and always makes sure I get my favorite rooms (high floor with a view of the bay).

If you need to be near the airport and major business parks in the area, while also wanting to be close to areas like downtown Sarasota and the beaches (I work in Bradenton get the Bealls corporate rate), this is the place to be – next to the airport, very near downtown Sarasota and on U.S. 41, the major road to Bradenton. The staff is very friendly and helpful no matter the time of day or night.

The hotel has a bar and dining area where you will meet interesting and well traveled guests. The food is great, and prices very reasonable for a hotel. The bartenders will have you relaxed after a tiring day travelling or working. The hotel has a large number of repeat guests because of the service.

Can't ask for a better hotel in the area!

Staff was most gracious, everyone we had contact with. Saved $30 by calling hotel direct rather than online booking. Dining room is not very formal but my wife's steak and my salmon were beautifully prepared. Room was very clean and well furnished. Located one mile from the Ringling Museum(so much more than circus history). We plan to stay there again next spring.

The location of this hotel worked so well for our recent long weekend. However, the walls are thin and can hear too much thru bathroom vents. The nights we were there, people were coming and going constantly...loudly.

The beds are interesting. You are able to adjust the firmness and I was excited to try it out. Didn't really get it spot on, however, after traveling to a different HGI this weekend, I know my settings. Oh, and I now know you can set both sides of the bed.

The air conditioner is a LOUD window unit with control on the wall. Not a constant temp (we would get pretty hot when it turned off) and very loud.

With all that said, it was a clean hotel. That goes a long way sometimes.

Overall, I don't think we would book here again.

Thank you for your feedback about your recent stay. Our ACs do cycle on and off in order to conserve energy, as part of our environmental efforts as a member of Florida's Green Lodging program. However, the noise should be minimal. When you have the chance, I'd greatly appreciate it if you could contact me directly at david.alexander@hilton.com or 941-552-1110 so that I could have maintenance take a look at the AC in that particular room. I am sincerely sorry about the noise, and would like to make things right.

We'd also be delighted to welcome you back, and do whatever we can to ensure noise is not an issue for your next stay.

I find most HGI's acceptable and a few to be very nice. This one was neither. Lobby was okay, staff were strange, out of bottled water in pantry, carpet in room was stained, I would not sit in either the chair or sofa in the room, which might have been bought from a Motel 6 or Comfort Inn that was remodeling. The room has odor like something was sprayed to cover up cigarette smoke all of which made me feel like something was crawling or jumping on me (no proof that anything was). Bathroom was small, clean and basic. Sheets might have been standard HGI, but seemed vey cheap after being at Hilton in St. Pete the night before, which was not luxury, just better. I saw a Hampton Inn & Suites, which I try to avoid, and a Hyatt Place on the way here and would try either before returning.

I treated some friends to a 3-day getaway at HGI Sarasota-Bradenton airport. They have nothing but good to say about this hotel! The courteous, helpful front desk, the attentive maid service, the fabulous spread for breakfast and the bartender and servers in the restaurant, all these made for a great stay. They liked the food at breakfast so much they had dinner at the HGI restaurant--the best steak they ever ate. The husband loved the beds and the ergonomic desk chair. He wants one of these chairs for his desk at home! The room was handicapped accessible as advertised and the staff welcomed their service dog without any questions. Best of all he hotel manager and the front desk staff went out of their way to give me the best rate possible.

Room Tip: Enjoy the hors d'oeuvres if you can -- they are great

Minor annoyances in the room ... toilet flush handle had to be held down ... cold faucet handle stop needs attention. No makeup mirror. Airconditioning unit periodically makes a high pitched whine.

Great bed, clean room, pleasant staff, excellent location for Ringling Museum, New College, Univ of So Fla Sarasota/Manatee campus. Excellent restaurants within easy driving distance.
