Came to Albany to visit daughter in college. This hotel is close to colleges but not downtown which we like. It has been renovated and everything is new and stylish. Staff was helpful and friendly. Parking is close to doors. We had a king room. My only issue was that we would have liked a real table in the room...

I stayed in the king room. Room was very spacious, clean and comfy. The sofa had a nice table that I was able to use for my laptop for further comfort. I would stay again. Complimentary Breakfast was delicious, hot and fresh. Huge variety of items to chose from.

This was our fourth stay at this Hampton Inn location and we return to only this hotel in the Albany area because we can count on easy check-in and checkout, a very accommodating and pleasant staff, cleanliness throughout the grounds, inside and out, and a great breakfast.

I enjoy this hotel because it is simply clean, affordable and the staff is great. I always can get a room. Beds are comfortable. Gym is adequate and not crowded, and complimentary breakfast is always a bonus
