Let's me start by telling you about our free wedding planner!

Every wedding we help with includes a free wedding planner (That's me!). And that's what sets us apart from all the other venues in Albany. Moreover, other locations will provide you a sales or banquet person to handle your wedding. With us, you get a true professional, certified wedding planner!

I've been planning and coordinating weddings for almost 10 years. Any of my services, when privately obtained cost anywhere from $2000-$5000. However, when you have your wedding with us, you receive all of my services for free!

I absolutely love what I do. I make it my top priority to make sure that each wedding I do is as unique as the couple getting married. Your dream day becomes my dream day!

Not only do I help recommend great vendors, but you can utilize my contacts to get better pricing as well. What’s more, I am great at helping you bounce around ideas that are feasible, and weed out ideas that may not be in your budget.

So whether you want help planning an engagement party, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner or the reception itself, I would be glad to be of assistance.

Newly Renovated Ballroom

Our beautifully remodeled ballroom is the ideal venue for all your wedding day celebrations. We can comfortably accommodate a shower for 30 or a reception of 150 guests. This space just underwent a $30,000 renovation Aug. 2012

Updated Hotel

Your out-of-town guests will enjoy the incredibly centralized location. In addition to our in house restaurant, we are within two miles of 42 restaurants and five miles from two of the area’s largest malls. What’s more, guests can enjoy our heated indoor pool, free complimentary breakfast buffet, and free wifi as well.

Free Shuttle Service

We will gladly shuttle your guests to and from the many nearby churches, and synagogues for your ceremony! Moreover, if your reception is happening somewhere else, your out of town guests can enjoy complimentary shuttle service there as well. Locations we shuttle your guests to/from are the Appel Inn, all area country clubs, and an assortment of banquet houses.

The Best Western Albany Airport Inn provides an elegant and romantic atmosphere in an ideal location for those planning a wedding in Albany, NY. Our full service Hotel & Conference Center is conveniently located less than 2 miles from the Albany International Airport. Our free shuttle service can transport your out-of-town guests to and from the airport!

Engaged couples love the fact that we work with their needs and budget. Although we offer three affordable packages, we can customize them to your liking so you receive exactly what you're looking for. They also appreciate that all of our wedding packages include a wedding cake from your choice of Villa Italia Bakery or Coccadotts Cake Shop and the services of our certified Wedding Planner, Stacie Blair, who has 10 years of experience.

Our beautiful ballroom has been recently renovated and can hold 150 guests comfortably. Our overnight rooms have also just been updated and the bride and groom will enjoy a complimentary night. You and your guests will all wake up to a free full hot breakfast buffet the next morning!

Couples can conveniently have their ceremony, reception, overnight rooms and farewell breakfast all at our hotel. We are also the perfect venue for a bridal shower and rehearsal dinner. If you would prefer to have your ceremony elsewhere, we would be happy to offer shuttle service.

For more information contact Stacie Blair at (518) 458-1000 or stacieb@bwalbanyairport.com. Schedule an appointment to come in and see everything our hotel has to offer for your wedding day!

Wedding was beautiful. Stacie did an excellent job and when one of the bouquets of flowers were left in the room, they drove it to the church with the shuttle. A little confusion with the fact that the majority of the guests could not check into their rooms before the service. This also made the shuttle even more confusing because no one knew to sign up for it. Overall it was a success.

Jeanne,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, it is greatly appreciated. Our goal is to exceed the expectation of all of our guests and I am very disappointed and surprised that we did not exceed your expectations or provide 5 star service. My dedication to the guests I serve has always been my primary concern. I am a detail-oriented person, I take pride in my work and I make sure I am personally involved with every aspect of my guests event and group lodging needs.

Since you did not elaborate on the wedding itself I would like to believe that we earned a 5 star review on that aspect. Should you have any concerns on the wedding please reach out to me.

In regard to the early check in request, we really did all we could do to accommodate your group of 30 plus rooms needing to be checked in prior to the hotel check in time. However, as previously mentioned in past conversation's, we can not guarantee early check ins, especially when the day prior was a sold out night. Check in time is at 3:00 pm. Some of your guests wanted to check in as early as 12 noon, and others throughout the remainder of the early afternoon. With a check out time of 11 :00 am for the guests from the night prior, and with the specific room placement request of pool side rooms, it was near impossible for us to be able to accommodate early check in's for each and every guest under the wedding block.

Again, you have our sincere apologies that we did not exceed your expectations. Should you wish to discuses this mater further,please do not hesitate to contact me.

It was a pleasure working with you, and your family. Thank you for allowing us to share in your special day.

Stacie did a wonderful job making our day very special. The set up and decorating was amazing. She went out of her way to assist us in the smallest details. Even pinning the flowers on my sister. If I have any suggestion for improvement, it would simply be for the staff to be aware of and follow the written instructions left by Stacie. For example cleaning of mirrors and providing comfortable chairs and beverages in the hospitality suite. I would definitely suggest Stacie for any up coming wedding planning. A special thank you to Colleen our bartender. She did a wonderful job.

We chose this location because of the many features this venue has to offer. Specifically, the great location (very close to the airport, and right off I-87-- for ease of travel), the fair price for the "all inclusive" package (the food and cake were delicious by the way), having rooms on premises (a must for anyone having a few celebratory drinks) and lastly; Stacie Blair. Stacie, a former wedding planner, was a valuable resource during the planning phase of our event.

Dear Renee,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. As wedding Planner at the Best Western Albany Airport Inn, my primary goal is to exceed the expectations of my couples and their guest's. Our affordable elegance, and great location, paired with excellent service seems to be the recipe that works, and the recipe that we stand by. I am so happy to have been a part of your special day. I know how much this day meant to you and all the time and though you put into the planning. Seeing the smile on your face is what makes it all worth while!

Please contact me if I can be of any service to you in the future.

My wedding guests had to wait for hours (some elderly) to check into their rooms at some specific time pre-ordained by the hotel. This was never mentioned to me in advance, and I was annoyed and embarrased. At this point, there was a long line for all hotel guests to be assigned rooms.
On the right side, the transportation to the wedding site was timely and convenient.

Dear User,

Thank you for the review.

The specified time you are referring to is called the check in time. Every hotel has a check in and check out time. You can find this info clearly documented on the contract you signed.

I am sorry if our 3 p.m. check in time was an inconvenience for you. The hotel staff needs time to clean the rooms from the gust the night prior before we can check in new guests regardless of their elderly age or not.

Stacie and the staff was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them for any event, large or small. Any question was answered and with the stress of wedding planning, Stacie helped things run very smoothly....I had some last minute changes and she didn't hesitate to take care of them...and did so without hesitation.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.

As wedding Planner at the Best Western Albany Airport Inn, my primary goal is to exceed the expectations of my couples and their guest's. We strive to provide affordable elegance, and a great location, paired with excellent service!

I am so happy to have been a part of your and Debs special day. I know things were stressful for you at first with the loss of your original venue, but I always say everything happens for a reason!

I greatly enjoyed working with you both, and wish you and your family all the best!


Please contact me if I can be of any service to you in the future.
