I travelled with my husband to the University of Albany for a football game. Not being thrilled with staying at a Marriott venue I kept an open mind. In the past we were big Marriott supporters but after 3 bad experiences in Orlando we switched to Hilton. But I must say this Courtyard was well worth staying with Marriott. The...

We were on our way to Boston but wanted to spend a few hours in the Berkshires before heading east. What a pleasant surprise. Courtyard Albany was a great value. The price was reasonable. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The Bistro and desk staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is right by the highway but our room...

We like Courtyards and use them whenever possible. The room is large and clean with good wifi (if you pay for the upgrade). Coffee in the room is usable or Starbucks is for sale in the Bistro. Food at the Bistro is also usable. There is a tiny work out room and a small pool and whirlpool. It is across...

On our way to Tanglewood, Lennox, MA. we could not find a decent hotel for less than 250 a night. Consequently we opted for an Albany, NY, close to the Thruway location. This hotel/motel has ample parking space, easy in an out despite the construction going on. The room are equipped with a small refrigerator and a microwave oven. Room...

We stayed here while at a concert for DMB in Saratoga. We get the marriott rate, and this was much cheaper than staying in Saratoga Springs, plus I didn't mind the drive, as the mall is nearby. The hotel is clean, quick check-in. Even had a pack n play ready for my daughter. The only negative I had is that...

We had a really great stay here. All of our preferences were met and staff was very friendly. The king room was huge and clean. We easily could have spent a few days here comfortably (two adults, one toddler). Location is across from SUNY Albany, close to major highways and just a few miles from really nice dining/shopping. Will definitely...

Whether on a business strip, preparing for the NY bar exam in the city center or a family trip, this hotel is a good place to stay in Albany: large rooms, comfortable beds, ample place to work or study, this location has also a dine-in place where you could have a nice dinner. There are plenty of other dining options...

Arrived at midnight and was pleased to see the overnight receptionist was as competent and capable as the day person. I've been concerned with a couple of less than great stays at Courtyards recently as I thought Marriott may be cutting back on their standards but I can say it isn't the case here. The property isn't new but everywhere...

A very welcomed A/C oasis under heat dome after 8 days of B&B's with marginal or no A/C and climbing stairs in grand old houses. Today's temp on highway was 100 degrees F. We had a very comfortable king size bed in a decent sized room. Shower was great - plenty of hot water and strong water pressure. Room was...

There are lots of hotels around the university here--very near throughway but roadwork made it confusing. Lots of college age people, too, which made me nervous but it was OK. We had a spacious "handicapped" room (not that we were). The bed was comfy. It was clean and pretty quiet. They made us (charged and paid for) coffee before the...
