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

Just spent 2 nights at the Albany Marriott. Clean spacious room, efficient friendly front desk. Wish I had time to enjoy the great pool and gym. Good food (dinner and breakfast) - special compliments to Liz at the breakfast bar - delicious coffee, cranberry muffins and smile!

We stayed here on our way to Boston and I must say that the hotel is excellent. Clean and well equipped. The staff is courteous and helpful. Will definitely return whenever we need a place to crash during our road trips. We got to the hotel late at night and everyone was exhausted. The checkout was quick and the receptionist... More

I stayed here while passing through with my family. The hotel was very nice from the outside and had great curb appeal. The lobby was warm and inviting and the staff was friendly. Check in was a breeze and we had parking pretty close to the entrance. The room was as expected, no complaints.

After flying 8 hours and driving another 4 hours we wanted a easy to get to hotel off the Thruway where we could grab dinner without going out again. The Courtyard promised all of this.
