Good place

The hotel was really decent. Overall the staff was great and the room was excellent. However, something turned me off - I was in Albany for my NY Bar swearing in ceremony and I had no idea how long it was going to take. So I checked out and I left my overnight bag with the concierge. When I came back, they had no idea where my bag was and took me into the storage room and just had me find my own bag (without checking my ticket) and I walked out. When I did, I asked the person whether they thought that what they just allowed me to do was safe and secure and he just stared at me blankly.

Spacious room near The Egg

My room was well appointed and huge - the bathroom alone was larger than some hotel rooms I've stayed in. Helpful friendly staff. Totally convenient to the Egg and Empire Plaza and government buildings. (Note: downtown Albany is kind of a ghost town at night, tho there are a scattering of late night bar/restaurants about.) Very nice experience.

Great place!

I enjoyed my stay at the 74 State Hotel in Albany. Right in the center of downtown, it's easy to walk to local attractions and restaurants (well, that is, if you don't mind very pricey restaurants). Staff were very friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. I would stay here again.

TImes Union Concert Stay

While the overall stay was acceptable, the place could use a refurbishing. We asked to be moved from the first room and the second room was only marginally better. There were no ice machines on the floor, we asked the staff three times to bring ice. Finally we went to the front desk and got our own ice. Also, we called to ask that the valet bring up our car and 25 minutes later it still was not pulled around and in fact the message never made it to the runner.

OK, but restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. Short menu and needs some updates.

Best Friend Weekend

We stayed at 74 State the weekend of April 5th. The valet immediately greeted us. Check in took only a few minutes. The room was amazingly clean and comfortable. Although there were other guest at the hotel they spaced us out so we could be as loud or quiet as we wanted without disturbing anyone else. The staff was so friendly and helpful with EVERYTHING. They are absolutely my go to hotel in Albany.

GREAT for Devils games!

The only reason, and I mean ONLY reason, this place got 4 instead of 5 stars, is because there are no amenities in the room itself. That's it. Everything else about this place is great. Valet guys are cool, desk clerks were awesome, room was clean, quiet and comfy, and it's a 2 minute walk down the street from the TU. For a hundred a night, this is REALLY hard to beat. Do NOT hesitate to stay here if you're in town for a Devils game, or, if you're like me, you go to the Devils game and then you want to go out in Downtown Albany and get a good buzz on without worrying about having to drive home through Bethlehem haha. GREAT place!

The TU is a block down S. Pearl. 74 State is THE closest hotel to it!

Meeting with friends for dinner.

Check-in was understantable delayed; the Boston Celtics needed to check out first. Food in the restaurant was pretty ordinary.
