On our way to Tanglewood, Lennox, MA. we could not find a decent hotel for less than 250 a night. Consequently we opted for an Albany, NY, close to the Thruway location. This hotel/motel has ample parking space, easy in an out despite the construction going on. The room are equipped with a small refrigerator and a microwave oven. Room... More

We stayed here while at a concert for DMB in Saratoga. We get the marriott rate, and this was much cheaper than staying in Saratoga Springs, plus I didn't mind the drive, as the mall is nearby. The hotel is clean, quick check-in. Even had a pack n play ready for my daughter. The only negative I had is that... More

We had a really great stay here. All of our preferences were met and staff was very friendly. The king room was huge and clean. We easily could have spent a few days here comfortably (two adults, one toddler). Location is across from SUNY Albany, close to major highways and just a few miles from really nice dining/shopping. Will definitely... More

Whether on a business strip, preparing for the NY bar exam in the city center or a family trip, this hotel is a good place to stay in Albany: large rooms, comfortable beds, ample place to work or study, this location has also a dine-in place where you could have a nice dinner. There are plenty of other dining options... More

Arrived at midnight and was pleased to see the overnight receptionist was as competent and capable as the day person. I've been concerned with a couple of less than great stays at Courtyards recently as I thought Marriott may be cutting back on their standards but I can say it isn't the case here. The property isn't new but everywhere... More

A very welcomed A/C oasis under heat dome after 8 days of B&B's with marginal or no A/C and climbing stairs in grand old houses. Today's temp on highway was 100 degrees F. We had a very comfortable king size bed in a decent sized room. Shower was great - plenty of hot water and strong water pressure. Room was... More

There are lots of hotels around the university here--very near throughway but roadwork made it confusing. Lots of college age people, too, which made me nervous but it was OK. We had a spacious "handicapped" room (not that we were). The bed was comfy. It was clean and pretty quiet. They made us (charged and paid for) coffee before the... More

The room was very clean and the service was wonderful. The staff were friendly and helpful. There is an indoor pool and Jacuzzi which we used. The Jacuzzi was excellent but the pool is very small. Luckily we were the only ones in the pool. It would have been crowded with three more people. That being said, everything else about... More

Friendly staff and management. Clean rooms and great location. Highly recommended! Easy access to SUNY Albany sports venues. Great shopping and restaurants located close by. Take a walk around the UAlbany circle!

Easy on, easy off. The thruway! This property is extremely nice and close to absolutely everything that you would want. We stayed in the most expensive room available (suite) as that was all they had at the time and it was of superior quality, very comfortable and we will definitely request it again this year. Wonderful experience.
