This is a very nice, comfortable hotel in downtown Albany. Our corner room was huge, with an enormous bathroom, which clearly had been updated recently. We also had a nice gas fireplace, which was a pleasant surprise. However, the best part of our stay was the friendly and helpful staff. We are brand-loyal to Marriott properties, due to my husband's... More

A good base for taking off on walking tours of the Capitol area. One drawback that immediately hits you is that there is no self-parking easily available. Be prepared for the added expense of valet parking, but the good news is that the valets were readily available and very courteous. Check in was smooth, as was check out. Our room... More

We stayed at this hotel on a Thursday night. We arrived at 18:30 in the evening extremely good reception and quick check it. No parking spots were available at the front of the hotel or anywhere near. We ended up parking in the back alley. The front of the hotel did have an open spot but it was marked no... More

We stopped for the night at this hotel on our way home from Cape Cod. it was a brief stay but everything was lovely. The gentleman at the front desk was polite and everything was done for us very quickly, the room was exceptionally clean and very comfortable. The area around the hotel is very nice with lots of restaurants... More

I came with my family from Canada and stayed for one night. The hotel is located in heart of downtown walking distance to many historical locations in the city. Polite and friendly reception people, clean gym, nice room. I will return for sure next time as I can not find this type of hotel with this price.

We liked it. It's in a convenient area of town and it was safe and quiet. Free breakfast is always a great perk and theirs is actually really good. Eggs, waffles, the whole spread not just 'continental'.

This property is clean, has a great breakfast. Large rooms and a comfortable bed with great pillows. They said it had a great view, but we were overlooking the street, but... Bathroom was huge, as was the shower. The room had a microwave and fridge. Staff was friendly. I would absolutely stay here again.

Hi there Barry M, Thank you for reviewing our property! I'm so glad you enjoyed your clean room and friendly staff. Being in the heart of downtown Albany our rooms with a view are considered "city view." I do apologize if that was misleading!

We chose Fairfield because 1) Marriott Rewards and 2) Proximity to The Capitol. When we arrived at dinnertime, there were a few open parking spaces right in front of the hotel entrance. It was easy to park and check in. Very friendly service. We took the elevator to our 8th floor double room and as soon as I stepped onto... More

We were a Canadian family of 4 coming down from Lake George checking out the city and initially booked the Holiday Inn Express on 300 Broadway (HUGE MISTAKE)...let's just say after a rude check-in and check-out at Holiday Inn, a hallway and room filled with smoke from a party the night before, and an unaccommodating manager who thought he could...

Arrived late and tired and was delighted that valet service was offered. Worth the $16 per day ( no extra in and out charge). Our room was quite large, updated, very comfortable and clean.
