My wife and I stayed for a night on 6/25. Everyone was friendly, from the valet to the front desk. The room was clean, quiet and comfy. The bar and restaurant staff do a great job at making sure your accommodated. Thanks.

Right off the NY State Thruway in Albany, this Courtyard Marriott is comfortable, friendly and convenient for travel. The bed was comfy, the room clean, and the staff super knowledgeable and friendly. The Bistro restaurant serves vegan options for breakfast and supper, a plus for me, and the glass of Pinot Noir at dinner was very good. Getting back on... More

We were trying to drive through the night in a bad rainstorm, and we gave up and found this place to get some sleep. We were last minute guests, late at night, but still our room was clean and very comfortable. The late night person at the desk was helpful and friendly. The bathroom was smaller than other Courtyards where... More

Convenient to the NY throughway. All the workers were polite and helpful.Only problem was the constant noise of the HVAC system. Even shutting off the heat would not stop the noise.Would stay again but will bring our ear plugs

Had a very nice stay here. The hotel was clean & quiet and conveniently located to shopping and restaurants. Staff was pleasant and I can't think of anything that I would really say bad about it. Definitely would stay here again.

I visited the University of Albany and stayed at this hotel. It is right near the campus. The facility is nice and clean. Room is spacious and inviting. Breakfast was also excellent. There were a few noisy guests. When I approached the manager, he was quick to "nip it in the bud". It's ideal for a business trip.

I was working at the Port of Albany for two months and really enjoyed this hotel stay. It shares a parking lot with a convenience (with beer on tap!), and a Dunkin' Donuts. There is a Bistro that serves food/wine throughout the evening, with friendly/chatty staff. Rooms were nice and kept clean, as expected at a modern Courtyard. My only... More

Nothing but really good things to say about this property. I'm a loyal Marriott gold member and this location did not disappoint. Clean room, good breakfast, exceptional customer service. Front desk gave good dinner recommendations as well. Gym is a little small but I did not have a problem getting on the equipment. I would stay here again.

Stayed her several times over the past decades and came for an overnight to visit friends in the area. As always before, we were very pleased with our experience at this hotel. It is gracious without being fussy or overbearing. Everything you need thoughtfully available but without lots of silly extras. I was especially taken with the numerous well-designed seating...

My finace and I stayed here for a romantic get a way for Valentine's day. Thought it would be quite. I think they shouldn't put families with loud kids right next to people who want a quite retreat. It was loud and I barely slept. The staff though are amazing. They are so sweet and nice. They care and do... More
