This hotel is a solid choice for travel to the Albany/SUNY Albany area. Check-in is good and efficient. I'm a Marriott Silver Elite Member and they recognize your loyalty when you check in - I always appreciate that. I wish that they had a thermostat control in the room, not the high/low warm/hot setting directly on the heater but the...

I just stayed here for 2 nights and experienced superb service from Mary and Jessica. They treated me as if it was a 5 star hotel, and made my stay in Albany very pleasant. Other than the hotel being clean and renovated, I highly recommend this hotel because of the service you will receive from these two wonderful people.

The overall appearance of the hotel can be improved. The room was not that spacious even with two queen beds. They ran out of food because they had a recall on eggs.The carpet definitely needs replacing however, the workers were very professional and friendly.

Late night check-in for business...overnight clerk was a grump...did not return my "Hello" as we entered....rude response when I asked how the breakfast was after commenting to my associates that FI had scrambled eggs and sausage as part of the breakfast menu. Thankfully, the room was clean, spacious, and quiet. I happened to see other reviews reportedly recent. We were...

We wasted our Marriott points one night this summer at this hotel. We had originally booked two nights, but after staying there one night, we decided to check out. The hotel is old and feels it; the decor is shabby and the layout of the hotel is terrible. The first thing you notice when you walk in the front door...

Located across from the University of Albany, the Fairfield Inn is an excellent lodging for business travelers. It meets all of the needs of the business traveler, including fax capabilities, multiple outlets, and even a Dunkin' Donuts nearby.

I recently wasted my Marriott points by booking two rooms here this summer! The hotel is definitely one that Marriott needs to tear down and start over. Beds were ok and no bugs to be seen, but VERY noisy air conditioners which prevented a good nights sleep. We have stayed at many FI's and this was the most disappointing stay...

I came to Albany for training and stayed at the Fairfield Inn. My employer chose the hotel without my input, if It was up to me I would not have chosen this hotel. The rooms are very old and outdated, definitely in need of a major renovation.... The green carpet throughout was just nasty. On a positive note the continental...

Tired, that's about the extent of how I'd review this Fairfield Inn, I've enjoyed staying in Fairfield Inns when we're on the road, they're consistently decent, and you get a nice simple breakfast. This one missed the mark, however. It's pretty depressing from the lobby you go by a strong smelling pool and into a dank holding area where you...
