This hotel was great because it was modern on the inside and right downtown. We were able to walk to everything we needed to and it was right next to Sixty State Street Venue which we were there to go to a wedding. Very convenient 15 min trip to the airport and lots of restaurants in walking distance. We also...

I was looking forward to staying at the Fairfield Inn in Downtown Albany because of the great reviews I read on Trip Advisor, and when I called a few hours before check in and spoke to the very friendly young man on the phone, he welcomed me and assured me that early check in was not a problem. When I...

Long weekend getaway with side trips to visit kids at RPI and Union. Great hotel in downtown Albany right at the state capitol. Room and bathroom were huge! Windows need a washing.

This hotel exceeded our expectations. Last year we stayed in the Hilton across the street which was AWFUL! When we came back to Albany, we really wanted to stay in downtown Albany, however we did not want to go back to the Hilton. The staff here was very friendly, the rooms were gorgeous, views were awesome, and my favorite part...

Stayed for two nights for a college visit. The room was nice, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was OK. Lots of staff hanging around talking to each other while the coffee was empty and the fruit needed to be replenished. This happened both mornings. At one point I could not get bread or a napkin because staff was leaning on the...

Love this hotel. My husband and I have stayed here for concerts as we live 2 hours away. ALWAYS clean, courteous staff.

Recently stayed at the Fairfield in Albany, this hotel is centrally located an makes getting around downtown very easy. They offer valet parking which was seamless and handled very professionally.

We were visiting the state capitol building and stayed at the Fairfield Inn by Marriott. It is a great hotel and a good value. Rooms are big and nicely decorated. We would definitely stay here again if visiting downtown Albany. Be aware that there is very little parking so you will need to temporally park out front of the hotel...

This is a very nice, comfortable hotel in downtown Albany. Our corner room was huge, with an enormous bathroom, which clearly had been updated recently. We also had a nice gas fireplace, which was a pleasant surprise. However, the best part of our stay was the friendly and helpful staff. We are brand-loyal to Marriott properties, due to my husband's...
