I recently stayed at this hotel while visiting my son who goes to UAlbany. I brought my young nieces and teenage son with me and we had a very comfortable night. The rooms look refurbished and everyone was very hospitable and friendly. Breakfast was great - lots of healthy options which made me very happy and Karen who works there...

I enjoyed by stay at the Courtyard. The room was clean and well appointed. The staff was friendly. The room was quiet. The only drawbacks: no free breakfast (but they have a cute bistro where you can eat; the staff isn't as knowledgeable as you would want (I asked for a super quiet room and they could not answer which...

During my trips to the US I have encountered several of these hotels under different names. They are all fine, convenient, and offer more or less the same stuff. They lack soul and personality but they can fix you up when you need it. In this case the room was large, clean, bed comfortable. Internet was ok. It is very...

Stayed here for 2 nights for business. Rooms were clean and secure. Small bathrooms. Friendly staff. The breakfast was standard fare for a reasonable price. 15 minutes to downtown and also to the Crossgates mall. Outside parking gets crowed at night. Very limited covered parking. Overall, would stay here again on my next trip.

I chose this hotel for its proximity to the Adirondack Trailways bus stop at SUNY Albany. The location is right off I-90 and directly across Washington Street from the university. The pool and spa were clean and in good condition. The staff were very friendly and breakfast was good for a Courtyard. The only real drawback is the immediate vicinity...

This property would be what you would expect from Marriott. It's a lower price point without a lot of the typical Marriott amenities, but that is what the Courtyard brand stands for. It's a great place to stop if your just looking for a clean, comfortable hotel right off the NYS Thruway. Lots of places to eat very close by!

I have stayed at this Courtyard 4-6 times a year for the past 3 years, each stay has been perfect. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, including Bistro staff.

We had a wonderful weekend stay. The room was excellent-very clean, updated, comfortable bed, very quiet, & very conveniently located. All staff we met were so friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The entire hotel was exceptionally clean and well maintained. This hotel will definitely be our choice for future Albany visits.
