Booked a night at this hotel as it was the closest to the Times Union Center where my spouse and I were going to see an event. The property was very close and convenient. We did have an issue with the room but the front desk manager handled the issue quickly and to our entire satisfaction. Clean, reasonably priced, very...

We stayed at the Fairfield Inn for one night for a basketball game at the Times. The hotel itself is in a quiet area, so that's a good thing. Plenty of places around to grab a bite to eat. The room was clean, the shower was hot and the staff, specifically Andrea & Heather were personable and very helpful and...

Highly recommend this location, not just for the standard reason one would look for a hotel but because the staff ALL make you feel welcomed from the moment you enter the building. Front Desk, Andrew, helped with dinner recommendations, took care of our taxis each time and checked in on us each time we passed to make sure we had...

We were in town for a Friday night concert at Times Union Center and stayed one night. The hotel was fully booked, and check-in and valet staff were a bit harried but doing a good job of dealing with so many concert-goers arriving at once! The concert started at 7 PM, and we arrived at 4 PM.....arrive just a bit...

Was there for a concert at timesunion center, hotel was booked solid and was probably booked all weekend as it was three nights of concerts. The location is great and the kids working as valets were working extremely hard. We checked into the room which was freezing due to the drafty windows and found a space heater plugged in in...

A 5 minute, safe walk to the Times Union Center where I was attending a concert. Also short walk to Museum and the Capitol. I stayed during the week. Although the rooms were fully booked, the hotel was quiet. Two comfortable queen beds. Spotless room. Free breakfast plentiful and variety. The manager Mohammed Kahn promptly worked out a minor glitch....

I was in Albany for a basketball tournament. I selected this hotel solely based on the fact that it was only a block away from the Times Union Center. A week prior to my stay I called the hotel with a special request because I was traveling with my elderly mom. I spoke with Andrea at the front desk. She...

While traveling through New York on the way to ski in Vermont, we stayed a night in Albany. The Fairfield was in a convenient, safe location.
