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 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!

Not only do I help recommend great vendors, 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.

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

We will gladly shuttle your guests to and from the many nearby churches, and synagogues for your ceremony!

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. Again, I would recommend her anytime!!

I was extremely pleased not only with the venue itself but with the professionalism and service I received from the banquet staff. I was also very pleased and grateful for the expertise that came along with this location. Stacie Blair is a wedding planner and was there to assist me every step of the way. Her staff were very accomodating and no request seemed to big or too small they always obliged with a smile on their faces. I would definitely recommend the Best Western @ the Albany Airport to any bride looking to make her day go as smoothly as possible. Thank You Stacie and all of the Best Western employees!


Blushing Bride,

Stacie was extremely helpful with setting up our wedding room block as well as questions we had along the way and she set up the shuttle for our guests to and from our venue - the Appel Inn. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and handed out our welcome bags to all of our guests. The rooms were clean and comfortable and we would recommend them to anyone needing a moderatley priced hotel to stay at.

the only reason we gave a 3 star for professionalism was because my husband had a couple arguements or disagreements with one of the waitstaff. he did bring it to the food manager's attention but it did continue. Other than that we had the best time!! Stacie was so great with helping me make my wedding day the best I could've imagined!! Thank you!! - Jennifer & Ryan Pechtel

Jenn and Brian,

Thank you so very much for your review. I do apoligize as I was not made aware of any disagreement. Am I correct to assume this took place towards the end of the evening after I had already gone?
Again you do have my apologizes. I am happy you were pleased with everything else.

Best Wishes on a long and happy marriage!
