I recently wasted my Marriott points by booking two rooms here this summer! The hotel is definitely one that Marriott needs to tear down and start over. Beds were ok and no bugs to be seen, but VERY noisy air conditioners which prevented a good nights sleep. We have stayed at many FI's and this was the most disappointing stay... More

I came to Albany for training and stayed at the Fairfield Inn. My employer chose the hotel without my input, if It was up to me I would not have chosen this hotel. The rooms are very old and outdated, definitely in need of a major renovation.... The green carpet throughout was just nasty. On a positive note the continental... More

Tired, that's about the extent of how I'd review this Fairfield Inn, I've enjoyed staying in Fairfield Inns when we're on the road, they're consistently decent, and you get a nice simple breakfast. This one missed the mark, however. It's pretty depressing from the lobby you go by a strong smelling pool and into a dank holding area where you... More

Nice location if you are just there to visit Albany or if you are on your way somewhere else only stopped to spend a night. Conveniently located close the Inter State. The front desk staff were very helpful.

My daughter's AAU team stayed at the hotel for two nights and I found the hotel to be clean and the staff to be extremely helpful. We booked very early in the year for a May stay and when an issue for my leg occurred, I contacted the hotel and they were very helpful in setting up a handicap room... More

Between a huge AAU basketball tournament going on across the street at University of Albany, graduation weekend for many local colleges and Memorial Day weekend, the hotel was slammed. Being there alone (my son was graduating college at RPI,12 miles away) I was unlucky enough to get perhaps the worst room in hotel. Not only was it near heavily used... More

We stayed on the 3rd floor. It was very quiet. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. Met the standards of Fairfield Inns. The breakfast was ample: hard boiled and scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, toast and English muffins, bagels, Danish, cereal, yogurt, fresh apples and bananas, fresh fruit salad, OJ, cran juice, coffee, tea. The exercise room was small... More

Stayed overnight with my daughter to attend a friend's party. Our room was clean and pleasant, beds very comfortable, temperature in the room easy to regulate. Didn't have time (or suits) to use the pool, but it looked well-kept up and inviting. Complimentary breakfast was better than expected, lots of options, food was fresh and plentiful.
