Very nice reception at checkin. Good selection of drinks at the "market" next to reception. While only purchased some water, they had a large selection of alcohol. Overall room cleanliness was good. Bed was very comfortable - firm and not squeak. Bathroom was fine until I went to take a shower. Mildewy plastic shower curtain liner and the tub drain...

Stayed here to split up a road trp to montreal. Hotel is located right across the street from Albany University. Small gym and pool in the hotel. Breakfast was average and they have starbucks coffee here. There is a dunkin donuts right next to the hotel. Big shoutout to Lamar's service, he was really great.

We booked this hotel on our way from Rochester NY to Manchester NH. Very comfrotable hotel, nice decorated rooms and bathrooms and very friendly staff.

Good location 15 minutes from downtown and directly across from the University. Rooms are fine and the staff makes the hotel. Food is available for both breakfast and dinner which is convenient as there is little within walking distance. Standard courtyard set up with good WiFi and lots of outlets.

The rooms ( I stayed in two different ones) were very nice. The beds were comfortable and clean, the couch and chairs were large and comfortable and the hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. We asked for a rollaway bed and got it at no cost and no hassle. The only down side was the tight quarters in the...

Nice hotel. Close to restaurants and airport. Cleanly maintained. Only drawback was no complimentary breakfast, which I would have preferred instead of paying for the same. Little bit pricey compared to other hotels, but worth the cleanliness in the hotel.

This is the best hotel front desk staff. Very nice stay. Restaurant at night was very good, and the staff there was very friendly and attentive. I enjoyed being able to sit outside and relax at night with a glass of wine. Rooms were clean and quiet.

Standard marriott courtyard! Best for visiting albany u (SUNY at Albany). Limit is that real food is a hike! So if you are being fed on campus it works, otherwise get used to trying to navigate Albany's confusing street plan. (Or become a habititue of a courtyard dining that is among the most disorganized I have seen!) breakfast lineup went...

The room was smaller than we had come to expect from the Courtyard chain--almost European-style cramped. The location would be very convenient to the SUNY Albany campus, which is directly across the street, and to Interstate 90.

I've stayed at a lot of Courtyards over the years for work and this has to be one of the nicest ones in the country. Very clean and comfortable rooms and the people that worked there could not have been nicer! All in all, great place!
