By researching everything I could, I thought this hotel would be much closer to downtown. We were in Albany to see a show at the Times-Union. It wasn't close at all.
It also took over an hour to get a cab to the hotel, which may not have been the
hotels fault, but they never should have allowed us to wait that long. We missed out on dinner because of it.
All in all, great hotel, but if your in Albany to go downtown, pay the extra and stay there.
This was our last stop after attending our granddaughter's graduation from Vassar. We had one night to relax and recuperate from a very busy weekend. The hotel is located a short distance from major expressways (easy to find), about 10-15
minutes from the airport and is quiet and the rooms are large and nicely furnished.
As this was our only night away from family, we chose to eat a quiet dinner and see a movie at the local mall. I would highly recommend Houlihans Restaurant in the Crossgates Mall.

Houlihans Restaurant in the Crossgates Mall. All their food is great but their fried donut balls in Bailey's dipping sauce is to die for!
