Across the bridge and up the hill from the Capitol in Albany, drive time to this property is less that to the Wolf Road jumble. The greeting we recived upon arrival was genuinely warm, very efficient. I used points for this stay, so for us the large corner room we had was a tremendous value. At first I thought this...

Stayed here overnight with my husband for a visit to our son in Albany in October. Overall, we were very impressed with everything here,and the price was fair. The room was spacious enough with the usual appointments and amenities, quiet and CLEAN (the most important consideration for me). Bed was comfortable and the hotel accommodated our request for a non-smoking...

We were in town for a wedding in Troy and this location was perfect for us. We had a suite and it was great. Nice set up. Love the shelves in the bathroom. It allows you to spread out. Service was good all around. Breakfast was really great. We enjoyed the pool and hottub each evening. Nice that they're open...

We stopped here for one night on the way to Boston. It was conveniently just off the I90 and just east of any Albany traffic the next morning, a perfect location. I had called the week before to request adjoining rooms as we were travelling with our daughter and grandchildren. When we arrived they had that all arranged for us....

Stayed here for a few days last week. It was a decent hotel for a good price. They have a fairly robust breakfast bar and coffee on tap all day/night. It's located really near shopping and other eating spots.. (Avoid that Sports place... Ughhh). The rooms were a little worn, but it was clean. The Beds are a little soft...

Was here for 3 nights with friends. Even though we arrived early our room was ready. It was spotless! The front desk staff went above and beyond in finding and printing out directions for us as well as making suggestions to attractions in the area. Breakfast in the morning was very good.

I recently spent a night at this hotel...just one night but it was very nice...if you can, ask to stay on the top floor with the view of Downtown Albany. The other side of the building faces the road. Everything was relatively clean. The sheet did have what looked like a bloodstained drop on it but I didn't notice it...
