The rooms ( I stayed in two different ones) were very nice. The beds were comfortable and clean, the couch and chairs were large and comfortable and the hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. We asked for a rollaway bed and got it at no cost and no hassle. The only down side was the tight quarters in the... More

Nice hotel. Close to restaurants and airport. Cleanly maintained. Only drawback was no complimentary breakfast, which I would have preferred instead of paying for the same. Little bit pricey compared to other hotels, but worth the cleanliness in the hotel.

This is the best hotel front desk staff. Very nice stay. Restaurant at night was very good, and the staff there was very friendly and attentive. I enjoyed being able to sit outside and relax at night with a glass of wine. Rooms were clean and quiet.

Standard marriott courtyard! Best for visiting albany u (SUNY at Albany). Limit is that real food is a hike! So if you are being fed on campus it works, otherwise get used to trying to navigate Albany's confusing street plan. (Or become a habititue of a courtyard dining that is among the most disorganized I have seen!) breakfast lineup went... More

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
