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

We pulled in after a long day's driving. Front desk staff found us rooms side-by-side (the hotel was full, we were grateful for the thoughtful help). It was cold and snowy and the last thing we wanted to do was head out and find a place for dinner, so we settled into the Bistro bar area and ordered platefuls of... More

We arrived and Karen was terrific. She ensured that our rooms were close to one another and she made the required adjustments to our rates without asking, now that's nice. The hotel has a great location and offers easy access to shopping and restaurants. I only have on thing to say (and it's not against the hotel) but there are... More

Overnight stay with family members. Hotel is as consistent here as anywhere else. The room was large w/refrigerator, but no microwave. Beds slept well and internet worked terrifically. Hotel staff was accommodating especially when seeking a restaurant. Hotel has a restaurant and place of interest document to view if needed. Take a copy, it will come in handy. Parking was... More

I typically do not review Courtyards by Marriott; since, they are so consistent. However this one, with Mark and Janice, is just fabulous. Everyone is very friendly and say hello! I always look forward to staying there approximately every two months. Again, major kudos to Janice and Mark-major assets!!!

My husband and I recently had a great three-night stay at the Marriott Courtyard hotel in Albany. The hotel itself is very nice, nothing unusually amazing, but very solid in terms of lobby, room size, cleanliness, decor, staff service, etc. What made our stay wonderful were the little things: a list of the TV channels printed out and waiting under...
