Love the location here, across from the park, walkable to the Plaza and downtown. There were three couples and we drew for rooms. Keep in mind there is no elevator, 2nd floor OK but after that it is a walk up stairs with your luggage although they will help you. Breakfast is expanded continental but all very good and seating...

Morgan State Street is located in a beautiful, historic townhouse in Albany. The house is actually pictured in a book (they have several copies on display) of notable New York buildings. The inn operates in the main house and in another, taller property about two doors down. Both buildings are directly across from Washington Park and just down the street... More

This is a truly lovely boutique hotel with beautifully furnished spacious rooms - BUT - its really a converted house (actually two NOT adjoining houses). The houses have steep steps leading up to them which means you have to haul your baggage up which is a pain and in our case haul them down again and then along the street... More

What a beautiful place to stay, not only in the building and furnishing but in the owner and staff. We arrived to a very warm greeting from two of the staff. One unloaded our car and the other jumped into the car with me to guide me to the parking lot which is around the back on another street. Beautiful... More

Our room (the 4th floor, park view, main house) was adequate. But adequate is not a stellar rating, is it? We stayed at 7 different bed and breakfast inns on this vacation and this was the only disappointing one. Pros - Our room seemed clean and was very spacious with plenty of seating and room for luggage. Bottled water was... More

Stayed at the Morgan State House while in town for the Glimmerglass festival in nearby Cooperstown in August 2014. If you're not in Albany for something state government related, and want a hotel with a bit of character, the pickings are pretty slim. The Morgan State House is the solution--a beautifully restored historic townhouse across the street from Washington Park... More

This is a unique place to stay, not the typical B & B. We stayed in the "Artist Studio" on the uppermost floor of the main house. Let me say that there is no elevator so be prepared to walk up steep flights if you stay in this room. The room is very spacious and decorated nicely. My only criticism... More

Not being familiar with Albany NY I looked at reviews before booking a hotel. I saw the photos of the Artisan Suite and booked the room, only to later discover my oversight, it is a third floor walk-up, something I could not deal with. The folks at Morgan State House Inn were very accommodating and switched my reservation to a... More

This was a nice comfortable place in a good location. We actually stayed in the Washington Park building, which was three buildings down from the Morgan State House. The Washington Park building is a residential building with some rooms for rental. It was a regular building in the older side, the room was comfortable and quiet though. The room also... More

The Morgan State House is a very charming, inconspicuous cozy B&B Inn. It is not your typical B&B inn (at least compared to those that I have stayed in). Rather, you feel like you are staying at a friend's (very nice) home. The only way you know you have arrived at the right place is the address and the small... More
