“Pleasant suprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We recently stayed here for 4 nights, November 5 checking out November 9. We came after a terrible experience at the Best Western Airport (see other review for details)

The entire stay was wonderful. The customer service is what I have come to expect from marriotts, and that is why I prefer to stay with this brand. Everyone made us feel welcome and our business appreciated.

The room is very comfortable and well decorated. We were in a studio suite and it had a queen bed, living area and nice sized kitchen with quality appliances. We never cooked but you could. We did have the breakfast each morning and the "snack" at night, and they also serve beer and wine on them. Nice to not have to go out in the evening, its right there.

I would have preferred to have the rooms inside instead of having to walk outside to get to business center, fitness center and eattng area but that was probably the only downside.

The breakfast is fresh and has something for everyone. The carriage house is clean and inviting. The workout facility has quality treadmills (I was usually the only one using them).

The location is perfect if you have business in the Albany area, we were very happy with that.

Thanks for a nice stay! When in the area I will be back!

Great location. Close to the Airport and all the major areas in Albany. Clean and newer rooms were nice as well. Very comfortable beds. I am not easy to please on that.

Free breakfast in morning. Not a bad place to lay your head for a night.Will return again as it works perfectly for me.

Our family of 4 (2 parents, 2 young adults) was in the area visiting relatives and stayed here (our second time) comfortably in one of the studio/loft style units. It was perfect-lots of space, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and 2 distinct sleeping areas. We did not use the pool or exercise room, but enjoyed the breakfast area.

Room Tip: Would request a unit at the back, although airport noise was present regardless of where you were.

Arriving in the evening, the hotel buildings were not lit very well, which made the buildings look old and dark. However, the front desk staff at the hotel was very hospitable and welcoming. Parking was very convenient for the building we stayed in. They have a nice pool and tennis courts as well.

When we opened the door to the room we were very impressed to see the updated renovations! Everything appeared to be new, clean and the room smelled fresh. All the appliances were very clean. They had a nice fireplace in our room and sliding doors to open for fresh air as well as a second window.

The fans for the a/c was a bit noisy but everything else about our stay was very nice.

Breakfast in the morning was included and the staff kept the tables and buffet area very clean and orderly.

Room Tip: I am not sure if the second floor level had an elevator but you had a better view from that floor...

I had to be in Albany for 3 days, and although our sport federation(usta) had proposed us a special rate to stay at the Marriott, I decided to stay at this Residence Inn.
I was a bit apprehensive after reading some reviews but took a chance. I was rewarded for it! The hotel has been completely renovated, and the studio room was beautiful! Granite countertops(kitchen and bathroom), stainless steel appliances, beautiful bathroom(great shower), a very good bed and pillows for every taste(firm to soft). The 42 inc. flat TV screen pivoted on a stand which allowed for viewing from any place in the studio. Fast internet was a bonus.
The continental breakfast was also quite good, you could prepare your waffles, and from sausage to eggs to cereals, nobody left the hotel with an empty stomach...
Add to that the wonderful staff, particularly Sarah at the reception desk, and you have a quite happy stay. A pool(outdoor) and mini tennis court completed the hotel.
The only negative: some noise coming from the nearby airport but it is closed at night so not a biggie.
I would definitely recommend the Residence Inn, my friends who stayed at the Marriott Albany payed only $5 less, and did not have half of the amenities I had.

This Residence Inn, is one of the best I ever stayed.. the most friendly's, and accommodating staff, they went overboard to help satisfy my family.Front desk Employee Mrs. Heller was very nice when we arrived in middle of night to check in, making sure we have all we need.

Stayed with family here two days on a Bi-level studio, excellent, excellent. Rooms are super clean, nice, elegant, fresh.

Only draw back is when the planes start to fly in early morning, its too noisy..

Other than that i will defiantly come back here with family..

Room Tip: The Bi-Level studio is excellent for a big family plenty of room, however you don't have too muc...

We stay here often and have always gotten great service for any issue that may have come up. This time, we were put into one of the new, updated rooms. Wicked nice! All new appliances - the stove is a vast improvement over the old ones. The look is new and updated and everything is comfy. Bed was comfortable, room is clean and roomy.

Room Tip: The buildings with the lower numbers (1-6) are on the side farther away from the airport and a bit q...
