Pro:This hotel is close to restaurants and malls Cons: Beds are too soft; pool is tiny and very cool The room was fine but smelled a bit musty. It was ok for a 2-night stay but I would probably not stay here again.

Had a nice room, very spacious and clean. Was only there briefly, overnight so I did not get to try most of the amenities. Used the conference rooms for my meetings. They gave us tasty food for lunch. The restaurant (cafe) was suffice for a quick breakfast.

If you are visiting the SUNY Albany campus, and have a rental car, this hotel is really perfect as it is across from the school and the accommodations are consistent with a three star hotel. There is no room service, but the staff is exceptional, friendly and professional. However, if you are a tourist or a business traveler this is... More

I was just "passing through" on my way to a family meeting. First, it is a great location. Right off the New York Thruway and directly across the street from SUNY. Second, this is one of those refurbished Courtyards. The room was indeed VERY nice. Very large room, huge flat screen HD TV, coffee maker, refrigerator, very clean. I love... More

great room, comfy bed, standard courtyard cafe but good food/service. the gym had several treadmills, weights and an elliptical. front desk people were nice. it was a little pricey at $200 (for a courtyard that's a bit too much)

I was pleasantly surprised by the condition of this hotel and cleanliness. I am pretty picky when it comes to cleanliness and my hotel room appeared to be very clean. Even though it is right off I-90 noise was not an issue. Would definitely stay here again!

We booked this place online without knowing what to really expect, and it exceeded our expectations. Very fresh decor, and very clean with a lobby market and bar that's open until 10 pm for sandwiches and such. I would definitely stay here again given the location on I90, as its so convenient.
