Just okay

It's an ok hotel. I didn't like the sour smell of the room and the towels had stains on them. That was a first for me with the towels it was a little disturbing to know that they don't dispose of the towels frequently enough because the second set I receive were still dingy. My bathroom had a sweaty smell that lingered through the entire stay. The carpet in the room had these wet looking stains everywhere. So I wouldn't stay here again.

Convenient yet unpleasant location

For my needs, an overnight stay between train trips into and out of Albany, the hotel was just fine. However, it is hugged by a multi-level interstate on two sides, and parking lots and non-descript buildings on the other two. Granted, noise insulation from the highway was quite good. However, approval of construction of this hotel likely lined the pockets of some government official. Despite trying both of the computers in the Business Center and contacting the front desk, which sought the help of the on-site IT person, I was unable to access my e-mail account, due to a "block by the System Administrator." Come on, folks, basic internet functions like e-mail should be the first things accessible.

great location

we were going to a concert at the Palace Theatre. The shuttle service to and from the venue was super convenient. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub and the breakfast in the morning. The beds were very comfortable and the staff was attentive and friendly. we would stay here again.

conference, work related

Toilet in hotel room would not work. When I asked that it to be repaired after one hour it still had not. When I asked for a credit as compensation for having to use the lobby bath room the hotel desk manager siad she could not offer any CREDIT as my room was booked through this service. She said credit would have to be authorized by the web service. In addition there were other problems using this web service in for work releated travel. Upon presentation of a Tax exempt form since I work for the State of NY the hotell again said they could not refund the state sales tax.

Convenient and comfy

Located right off the highway, but also an easy walk to the Egg, downtown, and restaurants. Above average complimentary breakfast, good free parking. Pool too.
