Courtyard by Marriott Albany Thruway

Reviewed June 15, 2008

We stayed at this hotel for a night to attend a wedding in Albany, NY. This hotel is located directly across the street from Suny Albany. The hotel was clean, spacious, comfortable and located not to far off the thruway. We arrived very late at night and felt very comfortable walking through the parking lot and the lobby.
Our room was very roomy and clean. When calling for extra towels they were brought down immediately. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
There is a dunkin donuts and gas station located right next door which was helpful.
I would just recommend that you don't use the directions from the hotel's website. You could see it from the thruway but when getting off we got completely lost trying to get to it. I would recommend calling and getting directions from the hotel staff, they helped us take a different, more direct way.

It was an okay stay. My room was roomy but I didn't like the bathroom since there was stain on the floor. The service was good. Everyone on the front desk seemed to be willing to help. I might go back to this hotel in the future as long as I get a room with cleaner bathroom.

There's nothing plush about this Courtyard, but you can't beat the location -- it's 15 minutes from the airport, near the junction of the Thruway and other interstates, and only 15 minutes from downtown Albany. Rooms are surprisingly quiet, given the hotel's location sandwiched in between the Thruway and a major boulevard. Problems: There's only one small elevator serving the whole building, and its entrance is right outside the door to the first-floor swimming pool, which can be crowded with kids dripping wet. One night the front desk forgot a wake-up call. And the breakfast buffet is nothing special (stiff bagels, overcooked scrambled eggs, etc.). Basically this hotel provides a comfortable bed and pleasant room, but don't plan on really enjoying your time on the premises unless you're a child who likes to swim.

This hotel is very convenient to get to off I-87 and I-90. It is located directly across from SUNY at Albany and a short drive to downtown Albany. Even though our room faced I-90, we couldn't hear the traffic at all. The rate was very reasonable and worth every penny! We were extremely pleased with the service and staff. Check-in and out were very expeditious. The room and bed were very comfortable and clean. The bathroom was spotless, with enough towels, etc. Nothing in the room appeared to be worn, broken or otherwise in need of repair. Breakfast the next morning was very good as well. The food was a little slow being served but not unacceptably so. We would highly recommend this hotel to all.

The stay at the Courtyard in Albany was trouble free, the room was pleasant everything went to plan, wired free internet access, which has become standard at this brand of hotel chain, and certainly worth its wait in gold as we were able to change our plans with ease due to our next destination at Buffalo being snowed in and a state of emergency declared! Without the internet access i would have had problems.
