Good hotel! It is right next to the University of Albany. Loved walking around it. Very 50's Sci-Fi architecture. Hotel staff were very friendly and the room was perfect! The eating area for the breakfast really isn't big enough for a full house so good to be an early riser.

We booked this hotel as a stopover on our way to the Fingerlakes area. It was nice and clean, and the service was excellent. Free breakfast was good. Very convenient to the highway. I would definitely stay there again!

We were on our way to DC and reserved at the Fairfield Inn near SUNY Albany. The staff was very welcoming. Our room was clean, and the WiFi worked great! The hotel was easy to access off The turnpike. The free breakfast was perfect to have a quick bite before hitting the road. I would definitely consider staying here again... More

Used Marriot Rewards points for a 2 queen bed room for four of us. Had to request additional towels and washcloths since there were only three towels and two washcloths in the room. The rooms and hallways were showing some wear. The hotel was fairly full, but we didn't hear too much noise from the hallway or other tenants. Beds... More

Nevin or Devin whatever his name was did not compensate me for the broken air conditioner at the Marriott Hotel by the Albany campus. I personally had felt uncomfortable around this individual. He was rude and non apologetic about the situation. And seemed like all he cared more about was just talking to the man next to him at the... More

The room is ok and the food was ok. The pool was only 3 feet for kids and people who can't swim. Customer service was good. Overall the money we paid was good. ORDER breakfast could be nice. IT is close to the University of Albany

The room was nice, clean and comfortable with a fridge and microwave.The free wifi worked well. The staff was very nice. There was an excellent breakfast selection that included cold cereal, instant oatmeal, breads and muffins, waffles, fruit, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, scrambled eggs and sausages. The ice water and lemonade in the lobby is a very nice touch. I... More

This location has become my Albany hotel of choice. A bit outside downtown but easy access to the highway, the property is predictable. Comfortable, well lit, good wifi and room service. Breakfast in the morning included. Both hot and cold and fruit and coffee to go. It does back up to the highway which I never found to be problematic.... More

We stayed for a night on our way to Boston. Very clean, nice shower and washroom. Breakfast was great, quite a few hot items. There was also a good sized pool but we didn't have the time to use it. Very friendly staff. I would recommend this hotel.
