I am a Platinum member and stay at many Marriotts. Good service is synonymous with the name. We made our reservations at the last minute, but even so, the front desk person Tracy, and also Lucy, were absolutely terrific. They went out of their way to make us feel at home, gave great suggestions for gluten free delivery service, and... More

After traveling for over eight hours the last 2 through rain we made it into this hotel it was very nice, spacious and clean! The young man at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The bathroom was clean and had very good water pressure. I have to say they could use new pillows. The pillows were very hard!!... More

We stayed at the Albany Marriott the night of the Kentucky Derby. It was clean, and the bed was comfortable. There were soccer kids roaming around, and I expected it to be loud, but we never heard a peep overnight. The breakfast buffet was also very good. Everything was tasty and fresh. I would stay here again.

Stayed for one night on my way to New York city. Room was clean, quiet and spacious. The location is right off the interstate and across the road from the university. There are two other hotels next to it. The courtyard is obviously the best among the three, by both the appearance and the type of cars parked in front.... More

Stayed here one night on business. Super easy location just off thruway, mall a few miles down the road for restaurants. Very clean and comfortable room. Staff is pleasant. Dunkin Donuts in the parking lot, no free breakfast at this hotel.

Stayed here in April with my family for one night. Hotel room was very clean and staff was friendly. Restaurant/Lounge was closed but saw we just got in and served us to save us a trip out. Located directly across the street from the university of Albany. Free wifi was great. Bathroom was on smaller side but was very clean... More

Well located, immaculate, very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are modern and well appointed. Lobby is set-up to be very user friendly. My only recommendation is that the Bistro be open between breakfast and dinner.

We stayed three nights at this hotel, February 27-March 2, 2014. The staff were, overall, very friendly. We ran into one grumpy gal in the "bistro" but, otherwise, kudos to the staff. Our room was extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable. They provide four down pillows per bed. I really liked the down pillows but my hubby is... More

I'm a platinum member that is becoming a regular at this location. As a "road warrior" I appreciate the location (right off of both I-87 and -90 - directly across from SUNY Albany. There is a gas station and Dunkin Donuts in the same parking lot which both add to the convenience. This property has been through the Courtyard renovations... More

The room I stayed in was spotless, so clean! The front desk staff was wonderful and so were the maids. The only complaint I have was the nasty attitude of the women who knocked on my door while I had a "do not disturb" on my door she. Was very rude and not sorry that she had just woken me... More
