Guest Recommendations
Best experience in Albany lodging, after you find it.
"The doorman and desk staff were incredibly welcoming, without being false. I lived in Albany area for seven years, and had to call for directions after one pass on Wolf Road, because your sign is all but invisible. Breakfast of blueberry pancakes were served so hot off the stove, that I actually had to blow on them a little - hot food in a restaurant? Almost never. I'd definitely stay again. The mattress was fabulous."
Andrea from Walton, NY US rated Albany Marriott 9 out of 10 on May 01, 2010
