“Marriott Courtyard Bradenton - Nice hotel for business”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

The Marriott Courtyard is on the riverfront in Bradenton and it is a little hard to find. The hotel is well maintained and has the newer open concept lobby. The rooms are typical for the Marriott Courtyard brand. There is a Starbucks bar in the lobby that has breakfast and light dinner items.

There is a nice outdoor courtyard which we actually used for our business meeting reception.

I stayed at this hotel for three days while on a business trip. The lobby was very nice and the staff very welcoming. The location is conveniently located a block off the main route into town. A Starbucks is in the lobby to purchase snacks or light breakfast.

This Marriott Courtyard was a pleasant surprise. The rooms were very clean and appeared to be brand-new. The dining area was casual and very convenient, and well laid out. There was a mall within walking distance with good restaurants. The rooms were large. Overall it was a great value and much better than I expected for the $99 a day room.

Use this hotel frequently and it's your typical hotel. Location is good with a short walk along the new boardwalk into the "bricks" area of old Bradenton close to the marina where there are a range if bars and restaurants. Nice pool area. Only drawback is poor bar area and food availability.

The rooms were very comfortable, with HDTV and Internet with decent speed that is included with your stay. They do not have a real sit down restaurant in the hotel but they do have a bistro where you can walk up and order food with tables nearby to sit. Breakfast during the week starts at 6:30 AM.

The HVAC is of average noise and is very cold when on A/C. The bathroom is relatively roomy with a decent shower with shower curtain.

Check in was quick and uneventful. Everyone there seemed very friendly and helpful.

There is a walking/running path behind the hotel (riverwalk). Nice restaurants are nearby. Try Pier 22 located on the river.

Overall, this is a good hotel if you're staying in the Bradenton area for business (but see my big "if" below). The hotel is new and clean. The riverwalk across from the hotel is great for jogging. The rooms are very big and well laid out. There's a Starbucks in the lobby which is really helpful, especially if you're in the area for business.

Big negative: unless you're coming over the Green Bridge and can see the hotel sign on the waterfront, the hotel is impossible to find. GPS pinpoints the hotel to a completely different location on the map. After driving around the area for half an hour, I finally called the hotel and asked for directions. The address that they gave me sent me to a residential housing complex, where the hotel is located. Unfortunately, there are no signs in the complex that lead you to the hotel. So I spent even more time driving around the complex trying to find the place. When i finally got there (completely frustrated), i found the concierge having a heated argument with another hotel guest who had just spent 1.5 hours trying to find the hotel! So i clearly wasn't alone in my inability to find the place. When asked to speak with the manager, we were told that the manager had already left for the night. A little strange for a Marriott hotel that caters primarily to business travelers. The whole experience left me with a bad taste in my mouth for what could have been a very enjoyable stay overall. The management of the hotel needs to work with Google Maps & the like to make sure all of their guests can get to the hotel without a huge time waste.

I have stayed at this hotel countless times. First, for the good, the staff is always very friendly and accommodating. The lobby is modern. The rooms are good sizes. The workout room is nice for a Courtyard. The location is great, especially with the renovated River Walk just outside it's back door.

Now, for the bad. In the last year or so, I have noticed attention to detail falling by the wayside. For example on this visit, I found a long hair in the sink that was definitely not mine. I stayed two nights and housekeeping really did a very weak job of cleaning the room. Trash cans were not completely emptied, towels weren't straightened, and the bed was not even crisply made. Housekeeping has been steadily declining. I don't ask for much, just the very basics of housekeeping. I am hoping this hotel I once rated a 4 can get its mojo back.
