Highly recommend this location, not just for the standard reason one would look for a hotel but because the staff ALL make you feel welcomed from the moment you enter the building. Front Desk, Andrew, helped with dinner recommendations, took care of our taxis each time and checked in on us each time we passed to make sure we had...

We were in town for a Friday night concert at Times Union Center and stayed one night. The hotel was fully booked, and check-in and valet staff were a bit harried but doing a good job of dealing with so many concert-goers arriving at once! The concert started at 7 PM, and we arrived at 4 PM.....arrive just a bit...

Was there for a concert at timesunion center, hotel was booked solid and was probably booked all weekend as it was three nights of concerts. The location is great and the kids working as valets were working extremely hard. We checked into the room which was freezing due to the drafty windows and found a space heater plugged in in...

A 5 minute, safe walk to the Times Union Center where I was attending a concert. Also short walk to Museum and the Capitol. I stayed during the week. Although the rooms were fully booked, the hotel was quiet. Two comfortable queen beds. Spotless room. Free breakfast plentiful and variety. The manager Mohammed Kahn promptly worked out a minor glitch....

I was in Albany for a basketball tournament. I selected this hotel solely based on the fact that it was only a block away from the Times Union Center. A week prior to my stay I called the hotel with a special request because I was traveling with my elderly mom. I spoke with Andrea at the front desk. She...

Stayed here for a conference. I was on the 5th floor in a room with a king bed. Very nice room, very comfortable. Large flat screen tv and clean bathroom. Some noise from adjacent rooms. Very small window. Heating unit fairly quiet. Small breakfast area in the lobby - nicely decorated. Lobby also has a gas fireplace. Location is near...

While traveling through New York on the way to ski in Vermont, we stayed a night in Albany. The Fairfield was in a convenient, safe location. We have never been to Albany before so that was the criteria. It was walking distance to several good restaurants/bars, had a very nice gym, and was a perfect place off the highway that...

Was given a room that was not clean. Went into bathroom in morning and dirty towels hanging on door and dirty tissues all over sink. When I asked to speak to GM I was told they were not aware when he comes in or what his hours are. Stay some place else!!!!!
