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.

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.

Good Experience

I have stayed at this hotel before and tend to when I go to Albany for business. The rooms are clean, the hot water and water presure in the bathroom is awesome! On this stay the room was overly warm and I could not seem to get it to cool down much, but considering all the other good things this did not cause me to give a bad rating. The complementary breakfast is nice and the hotel is decidely close to the Capital Buildings.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Try the El Mariachi Resturant on Washington Street. It is only 1.3 miles from the hotel and the food is exclellent and authentic. Easy to get to and back by car. Free parking after 6pm. on the side street to the left just past the resturant.

Convienent to the train service

Staff was great! Room was clean and well worth the price paid. Breakfast was good-not gourmet, but better than a lot of other hotels. The Sketchy neighborhood is far enough away that I felt completely safe leaving my car in the parking lot.

Excellent hotel stay

We were attending an event at the Times-Union Center. This hotel is just a short walk away so we didn't have to worry about parking/parking fees. Our room was very quiet and comfortable and clean. The woman who checked us in was friendly and gave us all the info we needed. We used the shuttle service, and the driver was really friendly. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. If I attend another Times-Union event, this hotel would be my only choice.
