“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2011

We have stayed at this hotel several times in the past 2 years to attend meetings. Two years ago the hotel looked fresh and newly renovated. It is starting to look tired, especially the carpet in the hallways. There is only one set of elevators servicing an entire floor. This time we were given a room farthest from the elevator. If you have any walking issues ask for a room close to the elevators. The closer rooms seemed to get cleaned earlier also. The rooms far from the elevators face the front of the building. It can be noisy when guests are entering hotel or employees are chatting at night in front of the hotel even from the fifth floor.
The staff at the hotel is pleasant and friendly. Coffee and tea were complimatery in the lobby in the morning as was hot apple cider in the evenings. They seem to want to please in every way except when it comes to the internet, which is not provided fpr free in the guest rooms. There is a business center off the lobby which you can use and print boading passes.
The breakfast and lunch they provided our group with was fine. Meeting rooms were OK too.
There is shopping and restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms closer to elevators that don't face front of hotel. They are quiter and no as far...

This Marriott is located very close to the Albany airport. Our room was clean and large with wifi. There was a gym and pool I could use while I washed our clothes in the hotel washer and dryer. Breakfast is expensive and not worth the price.

Room Tip: Rooms are large and beds are comfy.

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the years, usually when attending the horse races up at Saratoga in August. The hotel was recently renovated, and this was my first stay since the renovation. The hotel looks great, and is very comfortable.

This is a great value for anyone going to the races from late July to Labor Day. It's less than 30 minutes from the Saratoga Race Track, and is $100 to $200 less a night than hotels in Saratoga Springs. Wolf Road is also a great location for finding shopping and restaurants.

The Courtyard Albany Airport is a pretty standard chain hotel as far as decor, amenities and location. Very friendly reception desk, paid attention to our request for a ground floor room, room was adequately furnished (good work area; refrigerator; real glasses, not plastic), location is on a major thoroughfare near the airport but not noisy unless you open the windows, lots of chain restaurants nearby (Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Pannera, Starbucks), but nothing particularly memorable about it. Bathroom was rather small.

Low point was Friday morning when I was awaken by what sounded like druken revelers yelling to each other and banging around in the hallway. Turns out it was 8 a.m. and that was the housekeeping staff, which I figured out about 3 or 4 minutes later when they pounded on our door. I asked them to go away because we were sleeping. They did and never came back. When we returned very late in the afternoon and complained that our room was not made up, the front desk was very apologetic and arranged to have it made up while we were at dinner. The weekend housekeeping staff was not noisy and the rest of the stay was pleasant.

Overall, I'd consider going there again if I got a really good price, but I wouldn't particularly seek it out.
