Nice location. Lots of breakfast choices. The staff were friendly and pleasant. Rooms was okay but not great. Bad odor in the room. Bathroom not completely clean when I arrived. No refrigerator in the room. Just not the best hotel experience I've ever had.

Nice area, plenty of parking. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The beds were super comfy and we didn't hear a sound even though we were 2 doors from the pool and breakfast area. We would stay again for sure if we are ever in the Albany area.

If you are going to Albany this a good choice. Rates are reasonable, rooms and hotel are always clean and tidy. I have stayed here a handful of times. The staff at the desk is friendly and helpful. The hotel is right across the street from the University of Albany. Easy access from I-90. Lots of restaurants and stores within... More

We stayed at the Fairfield Inn for the NYS Track meet weekend (2 nights). The hotel was full but it didn't feel crowded. Even with multiple sports team in residence, it was quiet- we only heard doors slamming in the morning- no sounds from the other rooms above or next door. The only street noise that carried was a fire... More

We tend to stay at Marriott properties for some reassurance that it will be a clean and comfortable place to lay one's head. Every once in a while, though, the level of service makes a property stand head and shoulders above the rest. This is one of those!

Although this hotel is very convenient and close to our son's college campus, I doubt I will stay here again. I was disappointed in this Marriott owned property. It felt creepy (for lack of better words). For example, the only ice machine was in the lobby so I had to go there for ice later in the evening. On my... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide candid feedback regarding your stay. I am terribly sorry that you were displeased with the location of the ice machine. Typically, our fitness center door is secure and guests are to use their room key in order to obtain entry. I am sorry that you found it unsettling that an individual chose... More

We stayed at the Fairfield Inn during graduation weekend at the University. It is an older property that really needs some upgrades. The front door is not even automatic. The lobby is small and hallways narrow and confusing to elevator. Our room had cracked tiles in the bathroom and a cracked toilet. The hotel staff was friendly and attentive to... More

Had a 2 queen room all very clean and updated! Nice modern lobby and coffee 24/7 that is a big bonus! Indoor Pool and exercise room. Nice free breakfast in the morning. Can't say anything bad about the hotel or staff. I recommend this place if you are in the area!
