I chose this hotel for its proximity to the Adirondack Trailways bus stop at SUNY Albany. The location is right off I-90 and directly across Washington Street from the university. The pool and spa were clean and in good condition. The staff were very friendly and breakfast was good for a Courtyard. The only real drawback is the immediate vicinity... More

This property would be what you would expect from Marriott. It's a lower price point without a lot of the typical Marriott amenities, but that is what the Courtyard brand stands for. It's a great place to stop if your just looking for a clean, comfortable hotel right off the NYS Thruway. Lots of places to eat very close by!

I have stayed at this Courtyard 4-6 times a year for the past 3 years, each stay has been perfect. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, including Bistro staff. The Bistro food is good and they will cook to accommodate your requests and needs. The rooms are laid out nicely and very clean. The hotel is across the street from... More

We had a wonderful weekend stay. The room was excellent-very clean, updated, comfortable bed, very quiet, & very conveniently located. All staff we met were so friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The entire hotel was exceptionally clean and well maintained. This hotel will definitely be our choice for future Albany visits.

I travelled with my husband to the University of Albany for a football game. Not being thrilled with staying at a Marriott venue I kept an open mind. In the past we were big Marriott supporters but after 3 bad experiences in Orlando we switched to Hilton. But I must say this Courtyard was well worth staying with Marriott. The... More

We were on our way to Boston but wanted to spend a few hours in the Berkshires before heading east. What a pleasant surprise. Courtyard Albany was a great value. The price was reasonable. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The Bistro and desk staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is right by the highway but our room... More

We like Courtyards and use them whenever possible. The room is large and clean with good wifi (if you pay for the upgrade). Coffee in the room is usable or Starbucks is for sale in the Bistro. Food at the Bistro is also usable. There is a tiny work out room and a small pool and whirlpool. It is across... 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.

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
