          The Desmond is a one of a kind gem in Albany. Make sure to book your stay at the Desmond and you'll have a wonderful experience. The front desk is attentive to your needs and the shuttle service is a plus.

          Pricier than warranted by the out of the way light industrial locale with very little in the way of attractions. Good enough. Weird Williamsburg thing they're going for which ends up just being goofy.
