We stayed here on a Friday night using Marriott Rewards Points. It is incredible to think that for only 10,000 points that we could stay right downtown. So happy to find free on street parking overnight on the weekend. Saved the $16 valet fee. The front desk staff are very efficient and friendly. The breakfast ran from 7-10 am on... More

What a great find in downtown Albany. Clean, spacious room with equally nice sized bathroom. Very quiet. Friendly, helpful staff. Many restaurants within walking distance. Very good breakfast with nice variety of choices. Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed for two nights in a very spacious corner room. The bathroom was large with a bath and separate shower and the large bedroom had a king bed, desk and chair.

This hotel closes to major buildings in Albany. You can find street parking in the evening as they do charge 15 for valet parking. Breakfast is nice. Bathroom is big and fancy. Pillows are very firm and comfortable.

This is the second time we stayed here. It's a very nice hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. The picture is of a grossness hairball in the shower and my wife found another long hair wrapped around the soap. I don't want to rate this place too low because it is quite nice. Just please follow up with housekeeping.

I was there for 4 days for a conference with another person who had the room next to mine. The layout of my room was quite odd as the bathroom was HUGE but it meant that there was only a foot and a bit around the sides of the king bed to get around. The person who had the room... More

Onessa at check-in/reception was excellent. I booked last minute, arrived late and she was friendly, organized and very helpful. She offered free cookies and tea/coffee (just off lobby area) and gave me information I needed about gym, laundry... I didn't like my initial room - she switched me to a better room.

This is a classic downtown Albany hotel which was recently renovated and rebranded as a Marriott property. The rooms are large and well appointed. The front office was very helpful and professional at check-in, check-out and throughout our stay.
