Situated perfectly across from UAlbany we enjoyed our recent one (1) night stay. Upon arrival we were offered a 1st floor room near the back exit. I was assured the floor would be quiet and it certainly was. A nice sizable room with a comfortable king size bed resulted in a relaxed sleeping experience. The shower - with strong water...

The hotel is clean and renovated. the one thing that really sticks out for me (we stay at a lot of Courtyards) was that the rooms were huge. Significantly larger than most Courtyards. The location is very convenient to the interstate - but it in n way felt like an interstate-side hotel. It was a pleasant area.

Very nice reception at checkin. Good selection of drinks at the "market" next to reception. While only purchased some water, they had a large selection of alcohol. Overall room cleanliness was good. Bed was very comfortable - firm and not squeak. Bathroom was fine until I went to take a shower. Mildewy plastic shower curtain liner and the tub drain...

Stayed here to split up a road trp to montreal. Hotel is located right across the street from Albany University. Small gym and pool in the hotel. Breakfast was average and they have starbucks coffee here. There is a dunkin donuts right next to the hotel. Big shoutout to Lamar's service, he was really great.

Good location 15 minutes from downtown and directly across from the University. Rooms are fine and the staff makes the hotel. Food is available for both breakfast and dinner which is convenient as there is little within walking distance. Standard courtyard set up with good WiFi and lots of outlets.

The rooms ( I stayed in two different ones) were very nice. The beds were comfortable and clean, the couch and chairs were large and comfortable and the hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. We asked for a rollaway bed and got it at no cost and no hassle. The only down side was the tight quarters in the...

Nice hotel. Close to restaurants and airport. Cleanly maintained. Only drawback was no complimentary breakfast, which I would have preferred instead of paying for the same. Little bit pricey compared to other hotels, but worth the cleanliness in the hotel.

This is the best hotel front desk staff. Very nice stay. Restaurant at night was very good, and the staff there was very friendly and attentive. I enjoyed being able to sit outside and relax at night with a glass of wine. Rooms were clean and quiet.

Standard marriott courtyard! Best for visiting albany u (SUNY at Albany). Limit is that real food is a hike! So if you are being fed on campus it works, otherwise get used to trying to navigate Albany's confusing street plan. (Or become a habititue of a courtyard dining that is among the most disorganized I have seen!) breakfast lineup went...
