  Marriott Albany
by Bwana_Brown

Following our September, 2002 not very satisfactory stay at The Desmond Hotel, I was back in Albany again in March, 2003. This time the meeting had been arranged to be at a Marriott hotel. Although in the same general location, I enjoyed the overall setting and layout of this hotel much better than the previous visit!

Unique Qualities: Closer to the dining and shopping area in this part of Albany, the Marriott provided more flexibility to enjoy the local amenities. Overall, the quality of the hotel was excellent. Update: for my latest meeting of April, 2004, even the Marriott has priced itself outside my desired range at US$184/night before taxes! I decided to seek an alternative and found the very satisfactory Holiday Inn Express only a few miles away at an equivalent price of US$110/night! It makes a difference over 4 nights (see next tip)!
