Reviewed 6 September 2016

We arrived at 3:30 a.m. and this hotel staff was pleasant helpful and courteous to see that we could get to our rooms and get our needed sleep for the rest of our journey to New Hampshire. This venue is extremely clean and our stay was absolutely wonderful. The staff deserve high applauds for their polite manner and friendliness.

The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. Whenever we arrived for breakfast they made sure to bring out a high chair for our little one and always cleaned it out before giving it to us. Everyone was very courteous. We will be back if we ever need to stay here again.

But what really sets this hotel apart from others is their outstanding customer service. The front desk staff are friendly and helpful and the other staff go out of their way...

The hotel is centrally located in Albany. The rooms are immaculately clean and beautifully designed. The common areas are as well. The pool area was particularly inviting. The staff could not have been more agreeable.

Loved the stay here, the staff were super friendly, baking cookies! Bringing some to my room even! They were very accommodating with some snafu around my company paying for the room, and when my car broke down and I had to stay another night I went back to this Hampton, even though it wasn't the closest hotel, because I enjoyed...

My business paid for a suite, but I was not offered 1 until the day before departure. Stayed 3 nights. Hotel did not fulfill obligation. Room was small and cramped. No dresser draws. The housekeeping and food service workers were very good.
