“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

We recently stayed for two weeks. We can not say enough starting with the staff, the breakfast, the social evenings, the room. There was not one thing we could have requested that someone was not willing to do or find for us. Jordon was at the desk when we first arrived....a great young man looking to be very accommodating and he was. He started off our stay in a very positive way and everyone else kept it going. The location is great and we are now planning next years stay and this time we will be staying for a month. Why would I want to rent a condo when this was so much better, affordable and again very enjoyable.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor but I did not hear anyone complain about any of the floors. I liked where...

We were here last January for a short stay and decided to come again when we found ourselves again in the area. Same great experience..what more can you say? The staff is friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable and very spacious. Exactly what I have come to expect, but it's nice to see that they deliver! I would do it again and I recommend you give them a try, too.

I checked in at the Residence Inn, Sarasota, FL airport location & I was greeted by Brianna Lyons, who checked me in. She was so nice and accommodating and helped me find a quiet room as I'm a light sleeper. She called my room to make sure everything was fine after I checked in as well. The hotel's happy hour was fantastic! They had pulled pork, baked beans, macaroni salad & other items plus dessert! Wow, it was really nice to have such a surprise meal after such a long day and I didn't want to venture out to find something to eat. Thank you Brianna for being so efficient and welcoming!! I'll stay here again just for the great service!

Room Tip: Just ask for a quiet room if you are a light sleeper.

My wife and I were attending a concert and exploring the Sarasota area for the first time. We stayed at the Residence Inn for one night. The Inn is conveniently situated, not far from the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center, the Ringling Museum, St. Armonds Circle and other area attractions. We first need to commend Brianna, the front desk clerk, who provided exceptional service and recommendations. She printed maps for us, gave us accurate directions, and provided a great restaurant recommendation. Other staff were friendly as well. Our suite was typical Residence Inn, with full kitchen, living room and bedroom -- all clean and well maintained. Just two nitpicks. The single bed is queen sized, not king sized, so we were a bit cramped. Most hotel rooms these days provide two queens or one king. Second, the cable television reception in the living room was spotty. Breakfast buffet was very satisfying, featured a full array of offerings, from scrambled eggs and sausage to oatmeal. The hotel also has a pool. Overall, we'd certainly return to this Residence Inn.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your valuable feedback on your stay! Brianna is definitely an asset to our hotel and I'm happy to read she provided excellent service to you. I wish we could offer king size beds, however we have comfortable queen beds in each room. I apologize the tv satelitte was spotty at times, I will see if there is anything we can do regarding this.
Thank you for staying with us! We look forward to your next visit.

Cable TV not working properly during our entire 4-day stay. This was during the football playoff games. Staff said it was hotel wide and kept blaming it on the cable company. However, hotel engineer came up once and fixed in a few minutes. That worked for one evening, then same problems returned.

Room Tip: Confirm that cable issue has been resolved.

Thank you for the feedback on your recent stay with us. We regret those occasions when we do not meet your expectations and have maintenance failures that take multiple parties involvement to correct. Unfortunately, our tv satellite did have issues a few weeks ago interrupting the viewing on several channels. We apologize and hope to better serve you in the future.

Just stayed the one night mainly because the social hour was discontinued for that week. I hate to say it but we choose the Residence when we are traveling a lot because we can eat a heavy lunch and then eat light at the social hour and not have to go out every night.
Instead there was s'mores around the fire pit later in the evening. We loved the outdoor fire pit atmosphere and the families there seemed to be really enjoying the event. We just would have preferred a 6:00 beer.
The staff was friendly and efficient,the hotel met Marriott standards in comfort and cleanliness. Would stay here again.

Thank you for your recent stay with us! Marriott did choose our hotel and 2 others the week you stayed for a "social test pilot". Marriott is looking at changing the social program and a further pilot will take place this fall. We are looking forward to the change. Come back and see us!!

Spent 6 nights here, and loved every one of them! Full breakfast buffet was different every morning. Heated pool and spa were just what the kids wanted. Really liked the spacious room, had a full kitchen as well. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Would definitely stay here again!!
