UAlbany visit

Stayed here for college open house. Right across the street from UA entrance. The staff was excellent. I think check in took 2 minutes. The room was spacious and clean. This is our second stay at a Marriott courtyard, the other was near U Delaware and the experience was the same. I think this will become my go to motel from now on. 2 for 2 good experiences.

Distance to downtown

By researching everything I could, I thought this hotel would be much closer to downtown. We were in Albany to see a show at the Times-Union. It wasn't close at all. It also took over an hour to get a cab to the hotel, which may not have been the hotels fault, but they never should have allowed us to wait that long. We missed out on dinner because of it. All in all, great hotel, but if your in Albany to go downtown, pay the extra and stay there.

Excellent choice (for Albany)

Was in town for overnight meeting-first time at this Courtyard. It was clean and staff was genuine. Room was large and the fact that they have 24 hour snack bar (wine as well) is a plus. Breakfast not included but available. Slightly more but worth it.

Perfect place when passing through

We just needed a quick overnight stay off the NYS Thruway in Albany, but I wanted something a step up from the budget option. It was after two long days of driving and a memorial service and the whole family needed a quick pick-me-up. Our room was nice, the beds very comfortable, and my teens were thrilled to see a pool. Located just a mile or so from the largest malls in the area, it was easy to zip over to the mall and grab some suits and enjoy some evening pool and hot tub time. The location right off the Thruway, directly across from SUNY Albany, and near the mall was super convenient, the staff was very friendly, and the accommodations pleasant.

Great room - my 1.5 year old daughter loved it too....

This could not have been any better. I booked this hotel as we were traveling from Niagara Falls on our way back to Boston. I just needed a place to sleep. But, man, was I wrong - I got a room that was GREAT!! The decor was awesome - fantastic upgrades to the room decor. Great couch, very comfortable mattress. Great, clean bathrooms, fantastic carpets. We were traveling with our 1.5 year old daughter, and she was playing in the room in exactly the same way as she would play at home - which means the world to me. She loved the place. In short, this place feels like home. Would love to stay here longer, but I have no business in Albany ;(

good location for the money.

Had stayed at Albany courtyard mattiot before. they're in the process of renovating so I don't know if I would've stayed there if I knew. New rooms and hallways are beautiful. I think i'll wait to stay again until renovation is over.
