I enjoyed my recent visit to Albany. The staff at the hotel are outstanding, and accommodating. The room was nice, but perhaps could use a microwave or mini fridge...not a complaint just a suggestion. The hotel is in a good location for you to travel about the city. It served its purpose.

The hotel is not new, but it has been refurbished recently and is nicely appointed. It was clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. It was convenient for us since it is close to I-90. Breakfast had a lot to choose from so I was able to fill up for the road.

My two friends and I stayed overnight on a Saturday night. There were no major problems that we couldn't deal with. The room was clean, beds comfortable. Enough room for the three of us. Bathroom door wouldn't close all the way due to some problem with the knob/lock but we dealt with it. We could hear the guests next door... More

I have stayed here a few times previously as a business traveler, but when my family decided to cut our drive in half coming back from Boston we chose Albany as the rest stop. The Fairfield had a great rate and was able to accommodate all 10 of us comfortably. The place is very clean and the staff quite friendly.... More

This is a typical Marriott Fairfield Inn situated across from the University and beside the New York State Thruway and makes a great stop-over on your way to Boston or New York City or a base if you have a family member at the University. The hotel has been upgraded with new carpet and room furniture since my last stay.... More

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.
