We traveled 12 hours to another hotel we booked through Expedia which turned out to be a nightmare. Upon our arrival to the First Hotel, we found our room had already been sold and, after a series of really bad experiences we cancelled that Hotel and immediately book this Hotel. What a completely different experience! We checked in with no... More

While the staff was very nice, there was something about this Fairfield that left me wanting to check out as fast as possible. The hotel itself just didn't feel clean. The beds were uncomfortable. The breakfast mediocre. And when we asked for directions, instead of giving them they proceeded to tear pages out of a binder. Sometimes a little human... More

I enjoyed staying here. The place is very nice and clean. I also enjoyed their free breakfast in the mornings. While staying here, was able to work out for free at the gym in the nearby mall. They only have a couple pieces of cardio actually onsite at the hotel.

Located conveniently off the NYS Thruway and next to the University of Albany. It offers decent rooms and a good continental breakfast. It has a small indoor pool with swimming availability for the outside pool with the adjacent Marriott property located next door. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

If I wasn't staying for business, I would have checked out and gone elsewhere. No, actually, upon driving up to the hotel I would've hightailed it out of there and not even have checked in. This hotel is so rundown and ugly. While the guest room was very clean (thankfully!), the public areas were not. There's no restaurant or bar... More

This is not the newest Fairfield in the world, might be your first reaction when you enter the lobby. Fortunately I was persuaded to look past the first floor's appearance by the demeanor and helpfulness of the two young women staffing the front desk. They gave me advice on where to eat, gave directions and helpful handouts. The next morning... More

I've stayed at the Fairfield several times while visiting my child at UAlbany and the location is very convenient. The additional pros to this property are the price and the decent breakfast that is included. There are a few hot items as well as the cereal, bagels, muffins and the coffee is good. There are a few things on my... More

We stayed at this property while visiting nearby SUNY-Albany. The hotel was fine, just what I'd expect from a Fairfield Inn by Marriott. I paid with my Marriott Rewards Visa from Chase to get the 5x bonus on dollars spent at Marriott properties, as I get on all Marriott properties everywhere. My statement arrived today and I received 5x points... More

Good price. Nice room. Great service. Would definitely stay again. $89 for a solo King bed room. It's beautiful. Beautiful bathrooms. Beautiful bed. Beautiful everything. And it's close to shops (mall and Walmart are about 5 minutes down the street) just absolutely great.
