I went to Albany for a personal trip (sporting event) with my son and two of his friends- When I initially called I booked 25 rooms for three nights and the staff had no problem accommodating our group. When we arrived for check-in, everything was set up and everyone who had called in to reserve their room was able to... More

I recently stayed at this hotel to attend a lacrosse tournament being held in Saratoga Springs. When me and the family checked in, we where taken back by how dirty the room was. There was dirty hand prints down all the doors, dirty kitchen dishes and pot holders, dirty broiler pan in the oven, etc. It was really disgusting! I... More

The hotel is conveniently located for getting around the Albany area and sits in a row of similar hotel choices on Washington Ave. I've stayed in 4 of them so far and the TownePlace Suites is a very good option. Was in town with my sister and her husband so the two bedroom suite was a perfect choice for us.... More

We wanted a "hotel" with 2 bedrooms, at a good price. Found it. 2 BR, each with a queen size bed, kitchen area, living room. Bathroom was small, but very manageable. Free breakfast was simple - basic breads, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, packaged yogurts, juice, waffle maker. The room was small & seating was tight at times. Only 13 minutes... More

My husband and I were looking for a nice place for just an overnight trip to Albany and came across this one! Booking our room was fast and easy.

We have been coming to Albany to visit my husband's family for almost 25 years. This is the first time we stayed in a hotel. My kids are young adults now and we need more room than their house can provide. TownePlace Suites was the answer. We had a two bedroom suite. There was plenty of room to spread out.... More

I had not stayed at a TownePlace Suite hotel before, but have been to many different Marriott brands over the years. This property is fine and was convenient, and would be a good option for a low-cost long-term stay. It's like a scaled-down Residence Inn. I like to shop for food and keep it in the fridge of my room,... More

Rooms and very spacious and clean. Staff was friendly and bubbly. Wi-fi connection in the room can be a little spotty but it never dropped. There are bars within walking distance and other restaurants about ten minutes by cab, so while you get a good rest away from the noise, you are still near downtown. Recommended for its value and...

I stayed at this TownePlace Suites because I was exhausted from a cross-country drive, because I'm a Marriott Rewards member, and most importantly because Marriott extended-stay hotels take my black Lab! The hotel was a good save on a long trip, enabling me to arrive at my final destination refreshed instead of frazzled. Nice staff, nice clean room, nice green... More

Good kitchen in the unit, big room with a large bathroom and pretty large desk/workstation area, friendly staff, free parking, free net, and...it's a Marriott so they're always good. Price was very reasonable too.
