I stay at this hotel every time I am in the Albany area. It is close to the airport and has some decent restaurants nearby. The rooms are comfortable, updated, and clean, but the common areas and hallways of the hotel make you feel like you're living in the 1970's. Try for a room on a higher floor for to avoid the transport back in time.

Room Tip: Try for a room on a higher floor to avoid some musty smells in the hallway that come with age/ pool...

I've traveled to Albany for work every week for the past 9 months, and, whenever I can, I stay in this delightful hotel.

Very clean and nice. The staff go out of their way to make you feel more than welcome!

I highly, highly recommend it.

The Albany Marriott made for a nice stay while in Albany to watch the NYSPHSAA State Wrestling Championships. Even when the hotel was loaded with testosterone the staff seemed to keep it under control. The room was good although there were no cots available as I am sure all the people with HS boys were figuring the same thing on occupancy. The hotel has a nice fitness center with elyptical, treadmill and bike machines. They also have decent free weights and nautilus. There is an indoor and out door pool with good hours and a locker room with shower which came in handy trying to get out of the room with all the boys.
Ample free parking

This Marriott is convenient to the Albany airport and we were welcomed by an enthusiastic staff at the front desk. The room was very nice,clean, and well appointed as you would expect from a Marriott. The bed very comfortable, which to me makes the difference. Parking is free and under cover which was nice on a winter morning. We only had a short night here but would highly recommend this property.

The hotel appears very stylish for the 1970's from the outside, but the accomodations were acceptable. Updates have been performed inside, with a few exceptions. The gym is the nicest I've seen. Each treadmill, climber, elliptical, and stairmaster has a TV attached. The weights are great. The pool is standard, one is inside and one outside. The spa could use some grout and a good scrubbing. The shower fixtures haven't been upgraded since the hotel's construction. The bar and room decor are new. The charges for the use of the business center/hotel computer are ridiculous and paying for print outs is like being at the public library. The walls are really thin and neighbors will be partying like it's the Player's Club, being that this hotel has that kind of feel to it.

Room Tip: Book early if you want a King bed. The reservations were made for a week, but only double bed rooms...

I have been visiting this hotel for several years now for my firms Winter Conference. Just stayed 2 nights and again was pleasantly surprised at all the staff and their attentiveness to all guests. Very helpful for any request. Truly felt treated as a honored guest. Highly recomend this hotel for any stay in the Albany area.

We have visited the Albany Marriott several times since the fall of 2008 when searching for colleges with our son. Since he chose to attend a nearby college, we frequent this Marriott about 4-5 times a year. From the friendly welcome upon entering the hotel, to the extremely helpful front desk staff, you are made to feel like a valued customer. Without prompting, they offer travel directions, restaurant reservations, etc. In particular, Scott at the Front Desk is outstanding. The rooms are typical, and could use some upgrading, particularly the bathrooms, but they are functional and clean. The Marriott bedding is wonderful. My husband has used the indoor pool and found it enjoyable and well-maintained.
The breakfast buffet is delicious with a wide assortment of quality foods to satisfy everyone's palate, including an omelette station. The restaurant staff are among the finest I have encountered in my travels. Attentive, friendly, helpful- they make every visit there feel like you are dining with friends. When we were new to the area, several wait staff made helpful suggestions for dorm room shopping, etc. Sherri, a long time waitress there, is just terrific. For these reasons, the Albany Marriott is always our preferred hotel .
