“Marriott close to Airport and shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

This Marriott is in close proximity to the Albany airport. It is also close by to one of the areas larger shopping malls, Colonie Center. The hotel is full service with a restaurant and bar. The bar/lounge area is very open and casual. There are plenty of restaurants close by to the hotel. If you are going to downtown Albany, this location would not be a good choice as it is a distance from the downtown business district. This Marriott often is the center for many galas, wedding receptions, and conferences so it can get busy. I have stayed here a few times and have always had very good service and a good room in line with what one expects from a Marriott. It is also a good location to host business events/conferences in the Albany areas.

This is a very nice airport-vicinity hotel. Typical Marriott. I was picked up by the shuttle promptly after phoning--less than a 10-minute wait. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated. The bed was very comfortable, with the usual Marriott bedding. The bathroom was small, but clean, since it was just me in the room, the size was not a problem. I do wish Marriott would consider changing the scent of the soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion. Bath and Body Works shampoo dries out my hair terribly, and I've never liked the scent. Room service was prompt, but the food was not good. If I had to pick just one thing that I could change about the hotel, it would be the room service food. I ate what I could, and I decided against breakfast. I again took the shuttle, and I did not have to wait for the driver. He was very capable and personable. If returning to Albany on business, I would most definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: A corner room gets you extra space.

I was looking for a new hotel 2 stay at on wolf rd--called 3-4 times to see if the bar would be open sun and mon ( new yrs)--got a diff answer each time---the drinks in the lounge were outragesly priced--great staff--but bar was empty--to expensive---the food was dissapointing--small frozen burger--but not priced as such----no free wifi in room---no free breakfast--after partying all night--couldnt get in our room--had to sit in hall way for a 1/2 hr while they tried to fix the computer system that apparantly didnt recognize 2013----they did comp my room but as far as im concerned the damage was done---very poor excuse for a marriott---i suppose if your a company w/ deep pockets -staying there isnt an issue--but 4 the avg vacationer---forget it---u can do much much better on wolf road.

Room Tip: stay somewhere else!!!!

Attended a conference here with a few hundred other people - wish I had brought my lunch! The entree was chicken parm - dried out and tasteless. It was served on top of overcooked ziti, and the sauce tasted like a can of pureed tomatoes - no seasoning, no taste. The only thing that had taste was the cheese they smeared on top. Salad was a joke - a sliced "wedge" of lettuce with tiny bits of bacon and tomato off to the side. Dressing was blue cheese and no other choice - my friend and I hate blue cheese, so requested and got something else that was some sort of balsamic and decent. Dessert was a large slice of some sort of fudgy chocolate cake - you could tell it was premade and frozen - still wet. Dirty cup on the table as well. Another colleague got the vegetable pasta - more colorless pasta with a few bits of carrot run through it and smeared in some sort of alfredo imitation. The room was huge and freezing cold. The only good things I can say is that the bathrooms were clean and the wait staff were very pleasant.

The hotel is on Wolf Road not far from the airport and malls. Several good restaurants nearby.

I actually stayed here because the last minute rate was better than the courtyard across the street.

Marriott bedding is always good and worth staying. Check in experience was great. Room service breakfast was promised in "45 minutes or less." Kind of long. Although it arrived in about 30 and was well done and presented.

I don't know why the Marriott doesn't comp Internet like all their other brands (e.g Courtyard). During this stay the room rate was low so I stayed here but I usually avoid the regular marriotts because of having to pay for Internet.

this is a really convenient hotel near the airport, corporate woods, and wolf road. the rooms are large and comfortable, the work out room is nice. The only issue that if it is raining you will get walk walking in the covered parking lot--puddles and ceiling drips--and then getting into the hotel. lounge is nice place to relax

Made a reservation for this place then cancelled it when I found out they would make me pay $10 for wifi in the room. Ya this is a business center. Who cares. People want free wifi in their rooms. Don't be so cheap. Add in no free breakfast and this place was a bad choice. Instead Booked at the Holiday Inn Express. In a word it was fantastic. Cheaper than the Marriott AND free wifi and a huge complete breakfast. Holiday Inn sells themselves short because they call it a continental breakfast when in reality it has everything from eggs to pancakes, fruit, cereal.....everything.
