“Nice Quiet Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

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.

This hotel was a good price for a Courtyard by Marriott. They're usually really high. The room was a nice size, clean and quiet even though kids were on our floor. There was a small fridge but no microwave in the room. The Riverwalk is gorgeous at sunset. You can get a morning/evening walk or run on the trail right outside the hotel. The hotel is a little tricky to find if you're new here. There are some one way streets because its downtown. However, there are plenty of restaurants nearby, shopping malls too. Its real close to TreeUmph zip line park and 45 min toTampa or St Pete too.

We stayed here for 3 days this month for a wedding and enjoyed the stay. The beds are super comfortable and the staff was extremely helpful. They have a 'bistro' style Starbucks on the main level that serves all kinds of breakfast, lunch and light snack food. We did breakfast with them every morning and it was very good. Lots of options nearby for restaurants and nightlife. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: We were up on the 5th floor and had no issues with noise.

So we are Marriott Gold members and usually there is something for the loyalty. Here nothing. Its clean and well located but not much else. Don't know that I'd stay here again as there is a Hampton Inn and Suites right on the main drag, so better walking distance to the action. If you are heading to Marriott for the points or perks, this will get you suat!

I've stayed at the Riverwalk on a number of occasions and always enjoyed it. The rooms are well appointed, clean, and the staff is friendly. There is no restaurant on the premises but there is a Starbucks that serves breakfast and lunch items.

Room Tip: All rooms facing the courtyard (even numbers) are suites. All odd numbers are standard rooms. Suits...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights as part of some much needed vacation time. We chose this property because it's situated along the Bradenton Riverwalk which is a paved wonderful place to walk along the Manatee River where one can watch the boats, fish, sit on benches, etc. Great place for exercise! Hotel has lovely pool area with hot tub coupled with beautiful Spanish mission style fountains. Large rooms too. Property feels more like a resort than a business hotel. Only negative were the beds - honestly not comfortable at all. Don' think we could have stayed another night if we wanted to because of this but the property was lovely.

usually the old courtyards aren't good - but this one was. had the bistro - but set up differently. room was nice. hallway a bit rough but who cares. Parking easy, finding it not a problem. Good low cost option to get to St. Pete/Clearwater.
