Late night check-in for business...overnight clerk was a grump...did not return my "Hello" as we entered....rude response when I asked how the breakfast was after commenting to my associates that FI had scrambled eggs and sausage as part of the breakfast menu. Thankfully, the room was clean, spacious, and quiet. I happened to see other reviews reportedly recent. We were... More

We wasted our Marriott points one night this summer at this hotel. We had originally booked two nights, but after staying there one night, we decided to check out. The hotel is old and feels it; the decor is shabby and the layout of the hotel is terrible. The first thing you notice when you walk in the front door... More

Located across from the University of Albany, the Fairfield Inn is an excellent lodging for business travelers. It meets all of the needs of the business traveler, including fax capabilities, multiple outlets, and even a Dunkin' Donuts nearby.

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 The rooms are very old and outdated, definitely in need of a major renovation....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.

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
