We appreciated the manager's many attempts to find us a hotel with a pool, and her discount on our rate when it just wasn't possible. The staff were all excellent in every way. The rooms were also well done, and we found having one bathroom outside of the bedroom, and the other bathroom inside a bedroom, to be especially convenient.... More

Even though this hotel is not in downtown area it was really good. The breakfast was good and free. I was with a bunch of coworkers and one day the allowed us to use, in the afternoon, the breakfast room for a get together. The employees are really, really friendly and did their best so you could feel like at... More

I have never stayed in a TownePlace Suite and I was pleasantly surprised. I was meeting up with my daughter and her 4 children so we had a family suite for 6. When we arrived there were hot chocolate chip cookies and lemonade which was a big hit for the children. When we got to the room the suite was... More

It's always hard for me to leave a not-so-great review when the staff at a property goes above-and-beyond for their guests--they can't help it that the franchise owner of the property fails to keep the rooms updated. We chose this property primarily for the size of the rooms. That's it. We needed space. The location was okay. It is right... More

A nice place with large rooms. Has a kitchen living room and two bed rooms. They allow dogs and they also provide a free breakfast. You are across the street from SUNY Albany and 2 miles from the mall. Very convenient hotel and location. You are also 30min from Saratoga

This place has a great location and very friendly staff. The fitness area is very small, however, while staying there, you can work out at the gym in the nearby mall for free. I have stayed here my last 2 times.

This is our third overnight stay at the Marriott TownPlace Suites when travelling to our destination in Vermont with our pet dog. Each time we've had a very pleasant and comfortable stay. The staff are friendly and efficient; the junior suite very well appointed; and the free breakfast always plentiful with very friendly staff. We definitely will come back here... More

I travel a lot for business and typically can tell what kind of property I'm encountering by first steps on carpeting. This was no exception, this is a tired property in need of updating. Rooms are small and cramped, bathrooms too small and HVAC is from the 70's. Fitness room or closet is a complete joke. Recommend finding a nearby... More

We stayed one night. Great neighbor within walking Distance to University of Albany. The hotel was very cozy with a cottage feel. Front Desk Staff was friendly, room was nice. Breakfast was not what we expected for a Marriott hotel. Aside from the Breakfast this is a nice hotel and we would definitely stay again if needed.
