The staff at this hotel are rude and not at all knowledgeable about the local area. The website boosts of a breakfast upgrade and balconies with every room. Both statements are not true.Housekeeping seemed to think there was only one person in the room because we only got one set of fresh towels every day. When we asked to be...

Dear Pegpenquin, Our sincere apologies for the issues and serviced received during your recent stay with us. Our Bistro offers a wide variety of breakfast choices from continental items to cook to order French toast, eggs, bacon sausage and Starbuck's coffee. Unfortunately, we missed opportunities in our amenities and upgrade capabilities as we may have been sold out during your...

This was our first visit to Bradenton and we weren't sure where to stay. We are glad we chose the Marriott. The location was perfect because it was easy to get to and had several places that were within walking distance. The riverfront park was a beautiful place to walk. The hotel grounds were beautiful and the staff was very...

While both my husband and I were registered, on the third night of a 5 night stay I was alone and my key card did not open the door. When I went back down to the front desk I had to actually show ID to get my key card reactivated. I was tired and cranky and did not need the...

Just a one night stay for two during our final two days in Florida. Very nice and funny staff, the gal was sweet and showed interest and the boy at the desk joked it was not a balcony but a ledge, and it was a ledge outside bottom level. Beautiful hotel. Cat 5, the bed was on the firm side....

Very nice lobby with a waterfall. Friendly staff. I had a junior suite with a king bed and separate living room area. Sliding doors open to a small balcony. About 12 inches deep, useless for enjoying. The 3rd floor bedroom was above an inner courtyard that was full of very noisy guests who played music and yelled into the night....

This used to be a Holiday Inn. I think the original hotel was built in the 60's when Spanish Architecture was popular and it was fashioned so you had the feel of an old Spanish ship. The back courtyard had a small bar which was really unique. This was completely remodeled a few years back into a Courtyard. The old...

This is a beautiful hotel, right on the river walk. Wonderful pool and hot tub, beach on the river and river walk. There were plenty of employees greeting everyone and taking care of any needs. One of the friendliest hotels I've been in lately. Will definitely return.

Being a frequent guest at Marriott properties, I have certain expectations according to the brand. This Courtyard outdoes it's name. The big plus are the location but more than that the pool environment is terrific. It's large, spacious and well laid out with multiple areas for different activities. Staff was great, rooms clean, all good. One caveat: the definition of...

Stayed 4 nights in Jan 2017. Hotel is nice enough and a great location by the river with views across to the boats.Rooms are ok, a decent size but maybe a bit 80s ish. The big let down is that there is no restaurant or proper bar. This means your only choices in the hotel for food is fast food...
