We stayed one night . The hotel was clean and reasonably comfortable. Not the best of the Fairfield Inns but just fine. I would stay again. Breakfast looked like the standard Marriot fare. I only had some fruit and coffee as we were planning a nice brunch somewhere on the way home. The real kudos for this place to go...

Really nothing to complain about, had another nice comfortable stay at this Marriott property. Really enjoy that breakfast is included in the price. The reception was kind and courteous. The area is not bad as far as I could tell and there is a Walmart in close proximity. Only a couple miles from the downtown area too.

I traveled through the Albany area twice in the past week from Ohio and both times I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff was friendly, the check-in time efficient and what I most loved was they provided free newspapers! The two biggest drawbacks, however, are there are no refrigerators in the rooms and the other residents' doors slam...

Not at all what I would expect from a hotel in the Marriott family. Room had a sparse appearance. Needs to be refurbished, especially the bathroom. Mold on the shower curtain. (When I reported the mold the staff was very apologetic.) Breakfast was fine. Location is good.

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.

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.
