Stayed 2 nights October 18 & 19 while visiting our son for Parents Weekend at Ringling College. Our second night, we hadn't eaten dinner and it was getting late. My family thought I was crazy, but I said we should go back to the hotel and eat at the Bistro. Solely based on what I had read on Trip Advisor, I figured we would be well taken care of. Well, I couldn't have been more right!!!! First of all, Jane is a real asset. One that doesn't come along too often in your standard business chain hotels. She greeted her regulars by name, but quickly made us feel welcome. She worked to make sure we were taken care of, going above and beyond in all respects. The biggest surprise may have been the quality of the food. I had the flatbread, my husband had the french dip and my daughter had the caesar salad. All 3 meals were delicious! My daughter proclaimed, "We are staying here EVERY time we come to visit. And if we aren't staying here, we're coming here to eat!" High praise from my picky eater.
The property itself was nice, standard for a Courtyard, though it appeared in keeping with some of the modern upgrades. It is in a very convenient location, directly across the street from the airport and just minutes away from all Sarasota has to offer.
The other staff at the hotel were great, too. I didn't get their names, but everyone made sure we were enjoying our stay, offering to help or get us extra towels, etc. At check-in the front desk proactively told me they would put us far from a large group since they were there for a wedding and they may be up late. I have no idea if they were, because we had complete silence in our area (room 102).
Free parking and plenty of choices for food and drink make this a quality choice. Our son is only in his first year at Ringling, so I anticipate many, many return visits.
