TownPlace Suites is a good location for visiting SUNY Albany -- it is right across from one of the campus entrances. It is not well marked and finding the “lobby” was an adventure. The rooms are of average size, clean and comfortable; typical for Marriott hotels. The kitchenette is small but fully furnished with microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator. Two two-room...

We were driving late into the night and just wanted a convenient hotel for the night. However, there was no one at the front desk at 11:15pm--just a sign saying "I'll be back soon-helping another guest". 15 minutes later and now with 3 other families standing in line in back of me--I started to wonder if something had happened to...

We appreciated the manager's many attempts to find us a hotel with a pool, and her discount on our rate when it just wasn't possible. The staff were all excellent in every way. The rooms were also well done, and we found having one bathroom outside of the bedroom, and the other bathroom inside a bedroom, to be especially convenient....

Even though this hotel is not in downtown area it was really good. The breakfast was good and free. I was with a bunch of coworkers and one day the allowed us to use, in the afternoon, the breakfast room for a get together. The employees are really, really friendly and did their best so you could feel like at...

I have never stayed in a TownePlace Suite and I was pleasantly surprised. I was meeting up with my daughter and her 4 children so we had a family suite for 6. When we arrived there were hot chocolate chip cookies and lemonade which was a big hit for the children. When we got to the room the suite was...

It's always hard for me to leave a not-so-great review when the staff at a property goes above-and-beyond for their guests--they can't help it that the franchise owner of the property fails to keep the rooms updated. We chose this property primarily for the size of the rooms. That's it. We needed space. The location was okay. It is right...

A nice place with large rooms. Has a kitchen living room and two bed rooms. They allow dogs and they also provide a free breakfast. You are across the street from SUNY Albany and 2 miles from the mall. Very convenient hotel and location. You are also 30min from Saratoga

This place has a great location and very friendly staff. The fitness area is very small, however, while staying there, you can work out at the gym in the nearby mall for free. I have stayed here my last 2 times.

This is our third overnight stay at the Marriott TownPlace Suites when travelling to our destination in Vermont with our pet dog. Each time we've had a very pleasant and comfortable stay. The staff are friendly and efficient; the junior suite very well appointed; and the free breakfast always plentiful with very friendly staff. We definitely will come back here...

I travel a lot for business and typically can tell what kind of property I'm encountering by first steps on carpeting. This was no exception, this is a tired property in need of updating. Rooms are small and cramped, bathrooms too small and HVAC is from the 70's. Fitness room or closet is a complete joke. Recommend finding a nearby...
