Nice hotel on the Bradenton Riverwalk. Hotel was clean and inviting. Staff was really friendly and helpful and seemed genuinely happy to be helping you! Rooms were clean, quiet, and well appointed. The outdoor areas were well decorated and welcoming, especially the courtyard area with it's large, beautiful fountains! Just outside the fence is the Bradenton riverwalk which has some nice views of the Manatee River as it flows into the Gulf of Mexico near by.

Great location- near to airport, beaches and even Tampa! The hotel is so quiet you would never know it is near the airport. Each and every staff person greeted us with a smile. They start with "yes we can" instead of a "no" that you get at many hotels. The rooms are clean, as were the common areas, gym and pool (which has nice tables around it for a casual meeting). I highly recommend this hotel if you don't need to be on the beach!

The pool area is much larger and more "resort-like" than a typical Courtyard. Lots of trees, space for lounges and tables, and beautiful fountain. The pool area faces the Riverwalk, which is a beautiful way to get some exercise on a glorious sunny morning. The renovations are, for the most part, very tasteful, although the old wood in the bathrooms needs a dose of Liquid Gold to bring it up to the standards of the new countertop. Also the door hinges were rusted and old. The public areas and cafe layout are a major change from older Courtyards, providing more areas of private seating. Compared to many of the other hotels in the area, and in Sarasota, we thought the room rate provided excellent value. Our only complaint, and it is a MAJOR one, is that the individual air conditioners have not been replaced. As a previous reviewer noted, the unit spewed freezing air right to my husbands side of the bed and couldn't be redirected. This is a major problem and will keep us from staying here in the future. Oh, and if you're in the area make sure you eat at Anna Marie's Oyster House in Bradenton. Some of the best seafood we had in two weeks in Florida, especially the blackened corvina!

Has everything you expect in the Courtyard franchise. We had a room overlooking the water. Was clean and appeared to have been recently renovated. Pool area was nice. River walk not part of the hotel but was kind of boring. Not a lot to do in the immediate area.

I will say that I have never encountered friendlier lobby staff at any Marriott Courtyard (and my husband and I have stayed at a lot of them). This property is different from other Courtyards in that it was apparently a Holiday Inn and it's look, particularly in the pool area, is resort like. The internet connection was horrible. The only way to stay connected was for us to go sit in the lobby where the connection was strongest. It was very frustrating. There is a Starbucks in the lobby which is open only certain hours of the day. I do miss the complimentary coffee that the Marriott Courtyards used to offer but no longer do because they would rather their customers purchase Starbucks. The Riverfront is pretty but there is no much in the area to do beyond the beaches. The traffic getting to the beaches was horrendous! We took a trip to St. Armand's Circle in Sarasota which was very nice. If you are looking for a restaurant without getting in the car, there is a restaurant called the Yacht Sea Grill, which is across the street from the note,l and it was wonderful. Lastly, although we had a "balcony", it is not the kind that you can sit out on.

I was very pleasantly surprised at this hidden gem. What a great location. The renovations they have done to this hotel are nothing but top notch. Very clean, very modern, and upscale decor. The staff have been so very friendly and accommodating. The pool and spa were very clean.

Ive stayed in a lot of Marriotts in my years. This was definately pricey not sure of the attraction that made it so. Everything was over priced from snacks to drinks. The staff was friendly but we moved to Americas best value inn a few miles away.

Room Tip: definitely do your homework on this area it varies a lot
