After traveling for over eight hours the last 2 through rain we made it into this hotel it was very nice, spacious and clean! The young man at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The bathroom was clean and had very good water pressure. I have to say they could use new pillows. The pillows were very hard!! I thought it was a little pricey but comparing it to the other hotels in the area it was average for the area and it was easy to access off the highway.

Stayed: June 2014

We stayed at the Albany Marriott the night of the Kentucky Derby. It was clean, and the bed was comfortable. There were soccer kids roaming around, and I expected it to be loud, but we never heard a peep overnight. The breakfast buffet was also very good. Everything was tasty and fresh. I would stay here again.

Stayed for one night on my way to New York city. Room was clean, quiet and spacious. The location is right off the interstate and across the road from the university. There are two other hotels next to it. The courtyard is obviously the best among the three, by both the appearance and the type of cars parked in front. Staff was very friendly. No complaints.

Stayed here one night on business. Super easy location just off thruway, mall a few miles down the road for restaurants. Very clean and comfortable room. Staff is pleasant. Dunkin Donuts in the parking lot, no free breakfast at this hotel.

Stayed here in April with my family for one night. Hotel room was very clean and staff was friendly. Restaurant/Lounge was closed but saw we just got in and served us to save us a trip out. Located directly across the street from the university of Albany. Free wifi was great. Bathroom was on smaller side but was very clean as well. I would recommend this hotel n would definitely stay here again.

Well located, immaculate, very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are modern and well appointed. Lobby is set-up to be very user friendly. My only recommendation is that the Bistro be open between breakfast and dinner.

We stayed three nights at this hotel, February 27-March 2, 2014. The staff were, overall, very friendly. We ran into one grumpy gal in the "bistro" but, otherwise, kudos to the staff. Our room was extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable. They provide four down pillows per bed. I really liked the down pillows but my hubby is allergic to down and had to go to the front desk for a non-down pillow, which they happily provided. For our first night, we were on the "highway side" of the hotel, which had a lot of traffic noise during the night. I requested a move the next morning to the "college side" of the hotel and this proved to be much quieter at night. They offer a small bistro on the first floor for breakfast and there's a Dunkin' Donuts on one side of the hotel and a Sunoco gas station on the other. They have a small exercise room, an indoor pool, and whirlpool, none of which we used but they appeared to be clean and in good condition. We were pleased with our visit and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for the third floor, "college side" of the hotel.
