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...

I stay at this property almost weekly and am a lifetime platinum member with Marriott. When you have stayed at as many properties as I have and are always on the road - it's the little things that mean a lot. This is your typical updated Courtyard - located right off I-10 and I-87. Every food you could ever want... More

Stayed for business twice last month. Easy to find right off the Thruway. Upgraded the first time to a very nice large "suite" (still one room). Only down side was room was on the highway side and you could hear cars all night. Helpful staff. The second time the first room i had smelled moldy and they immediately moved me... More

Stayed for one night. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Std Courtyard Marriott, little store with microwave and alcohol, bistro, off-lobby seating. Pool and hot tub looked decent but we didn't have time to try. Elevator at front of hotel. Plenty of parking out front. Carpets were typical browns, but they had nice blue and red patterns which was... More

Business has not brought me to town as much as it did last year until lately -- and yet it was still like coming to my second home. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Great property led by a fantastic GM and run by a thoughtful, dedicated staff. Appreciate a solid hotel like this... More

Situated perfectly across from UAlbany we enjoyed our recent one (1) night stay. Upon arrival we were offered a 1st floor room near the back exit. I was assured the floor would be quiet and it certainly was. A nice sizable room with a comfortable king size bed resulted in a relaxed sleeping experience. The shower - with strong water... More

The hotel is clean and renovated. the one thing that really sticks out for me (we stay at a lot of Courtyards) was that the rooms were huge. Significantly larger than most Courtyards. The location is very convenient to the interstate - but it in n way felt like an interstate-side hotel. It was a pleasant area.

Very nice reception at checkin. Good selection of drinks at the "market" next to reception. While only purchased some water, they had a large selection of alcohol. Overall room cleanliness was good. Bed was very comfortable - firm and not squeak. Bathroom was fine until I went to take a shower. Mildewy plastic shower curtain liner and the tub drain... More

Stayed here to split up a road trp to montreal. Hotel is located right across the street from Albany University. Small gym and pool in the hotel. Breakfast was average and they have starbucks coffee here. There is a dunkin donuts right next to the hotel. Big shoutout to Lamar's service, he was really great.
