The room was smaller than we had come to expect from the Courtyard chain--almost European-style cramped. The location would be very convenient to the SUNY Albany campus, which is directly across the street, and to Interstate 90.

I've stayed at a lot of Courtyards over the years for work and this has to be one of the nicest ones in the country. Very clean and comfortable rooms and the people that worked there could not have been nicer! All in all, great place!

I found this hotel easy to get to (even though you had to make a jughandle turn in the U of Albany campus to enter the parking lot) and in a good location, right off Rt 90 and very close to Rt 87 (the Northway). The front desk staff checked us in quickly and were very helpful with restaurant recommendations.... More

We stayed here overnight passing through Albany. I would probably not stay here again. First of all, I expected it to be right off the Thruway and we actually got lost and had to travel through the University of Albany Campus to get to it. (It's the perfect hotel if you're attending an event at the campus!) The young man... More

This was a return trip for us. We visit the Saratoga Race Track every year, and when we do, we stay here at the Courtyard Marriott. The hotel is an easy ride from Saratoga, and very accessible from the highway. When we arrived, we were greeted by the same manager, Karen, who remembered us from last time. She was very... More

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.
