We stayed at The Courtyard Albany Thruway for only one night on October 17, 2009. The girl at check-in was probably the BEST person I have ever encountered at a Marriott resort. She was quick, professional and very friendly. I noticed the Manager (I believe) was very present at all times and I think this made a difference.
There was a loud group of cheerleaders in the pool Saturday night. I did not stay in the pool due to their screaming and could hear them while in my second floor room. But it was very shortly thereafter that I think the hotel staff quieted them because the screaming stopped very quickly.
The breakfast buffet was good and has a limited selection of eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, fruit, juices, yogurt and pastries. The service was good with the waitress filling our orange juice and coffee quickly.
The hotel is very clean and well kept. Everything in our room worked and the room seemed very clean. The lobby looks to have been recently renovated and modern. The pool area was clean and the pool and Jacuzzi worked properly. The staff regularly placed new towels on the back of the chairs for the guests. They also straighten and cleaned the pool area several times during our stay.
The staff is excellent! I only wish I were able to spend more time at this excellent hotel.
