Hyatt Place Sarasota / Bradenton Airport
Ranked #5 of 50 Hotels in Sarasota
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 August 2011

This was our 1st time to ever stay at Hyatt. A bit concerened as the location is just a short distance from the airport. Turned out never heard a plane. Very friendly welcome from the desk clerk. Offered a tour of the hotel and did an excellent job of telling the highlights of the hotel. The hotel is just 2 years old and it was very refreshing to stay at a hotel with new facilities. Including, furniture, bedding, bathroom and throughout the hotel. There were no resort fees or incidental fees. so what we paid in advance was it. No hidden costs or other surprises. Just what we were looking for, clean, friendly and enjoyable. I can see futures stays as we plan our vacations for that area.

Room Tip: A nice quiet, peaceful night of sleep you can be assured of here

We stayed here for 3 nights in April to go to Orioles Spring Training Camp. It is a beautiful hotel, close to the airport and a short drive to the beach, shopping, ballpark or sites to see. The free continenetal breakfast was great! The staff was very nice and check in took just a few minutes. The room was clean and pretty. I would definitely go back!

Spring Training is one of my favorite seasons here! We get to see our favorite baseball teams up close and personal at a fraction of the cost. Thanks for staying with us and posting this great review. I hope to see you back again next April!

This was my first stay at a Hyatt Place hotel. Our family group (4 adults, one child, 1 enfant) stayed here while visiting the nearby Siesta Key public beach (one of the "top 10" in the nation). Entering the hotel I was struck by the welcoming feel and nice decor. After a quick check-in by efficient staff, I was given briefing and tour of many of the common areas and guest amenities. This includes ample parking, free wi-fi throughout hotel, guest computer area, guest pantry, small bar and 24-hour food service area that offers small meals and Starbucks coffee, "Grab-and-Go" food items, pool and sauna, daily hot breakfast (with additional breakfast items for sale). The clean rooms were well appointed with comfortable beds, compact refrigerator, small office desk area, and "42" flat screen TV. The highlight of our visit was the very helpful staff. Every need was anticipated and every request (including room changes to better accomodate our group) were handled promptly and efficiently. If you're looking for a great hotel with great staff and prime location, this is a place to seriously consider.

Room Tip: The one king room w/adjoining double queen room is perfect for a large family (5-8) group

We hope you enjoyed fun in the sun at Siesta Key Beach, which is now ranked #1 in the Nation! Thank you for commenting on our staff's helpfulness. We try very hard to make sure our guests enjoy their stay with us to the fullest extent. Be sure to visit other Hyatt Place hotels on your travels, as their are now over 160 of them open nationwide.

While on a week in Florida my partner and I stayed here for 3 nights when we were in Sarasota. This is a great Hyatt Place. It's near the airport but everything is so close in Sarasota. It takes maybe 10-15 minutes to drive to Siesta Key, and even less to go to the downtown Sarasota area and main shopping area (can't remember what it's called at the moment but it's the big tourist spot). It's a no frills hotel, you check yourself in but there's free breakfast and wifi which was actually really fast unlike at the Hyatt Place in Fort Lauderdale. Overall great experience and would highly recommend.

The rooms are great because they all have a separate bar type area with a mini fridge and a sink with a desk for work etc. The TVs are all LCD and have the great Hyatt Plug on the side which easily lets you connect literally any type of device to it from an iPod to Laptop.

We enjoyed staying at this Hyatt Place. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and spacious. We had two adjoining rooms which made it perfect for the kids to sleep/play in one room, while we were in the other room.
Having a free breakfast at the hotel was convenient: cereals, bagels, fresh fruit, and yogurt were offered every morning. You could also order eggs or waffles for an extra charge.
The pool was clean and easily accessible. We were a bit farther from the beach than we wanted to be, so we considered going to another hotel closer to the beach. After a couple of days though, we decided to stay: the drive wasn't too bad and moving didn't outweigh the pros of a huge room and free breakfast.
The hotel also has laundry rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floor. I would recommend bringing some detergent from home or buying some from a store. The hotel offers detergent for $1.50, but it's a small box and it's powder.
Two staff members were particularly helpful: Carmelo, who seemed to be the manager or supervisor (he also made my son's eggs every morning) and Paul, who seemed to do everything else: make cappuccinos, check in guests, help with breakfast. They were friendly and made our stay even more pleasant.

Room Tip: For a family, ask about adjoining rooms. We stayed on the first floor which made it easy to get to t...

This hotel supposedly brews Starbucks coffee, but I drink Starbucks coffee often and have never tasted any this bad. Several times we complained about it, and the second day a manager brewed us an ok cup at our insistence, apparently brewing the coffee much stronger, but the staff still didn't seem interested until the morning we were checking out, when the manager brewed another fairly decent pot of coffee and gave us a complimentary cup (big deal-- after having to drive to McDonald's all week for decent coffee).
The room was large but uncomfortably laid out for most travelers; it looked like it should have been used for business meetings, since half the space was fairly open with a large couch against the wall, a desk for a computer, and a small bar area. The beds were tucked behind a light divider, with the sink right in front of the beds, a tiny bathroom and probably a 2 foot closet, where about 1 foot was visible. The room was fairly clean, beds were comfortable, the a/c worked ok, but the complimentary breakfast was unremarkable at best, no eggs, just cereal, toast, mixed fruit, warm milk, and that lousy coffee. Eggs and other foods were available at extra cost however.
We also had a laughable (or frustrating, depending on your mood) mix-up with the billing of our room. Since we had gone to Sarasota for a wedding, we received 3 days discount for the wedding rate and then were to be charged a slightly higher price for the next 2 days. Hotels often have differing rates depending on days of the week, so we didn't think anything about it. However, on the day that we were to be charged the higher amount, we were called by the front desk no fewer than 3 times to physically go to the front desk to validate this change and affirm that we were staying there for the extra 2 days at the higher price.
The day we left the manager did seem to care that we may have had some concerns, but the attitude of some of the other staff during our stay could best be described as "disinterested". In other words, I felt that this hotel is not one that "pampers" their guests, but it was comfortable and clean.
