If your job or travels take you to downtown Albany, the one and only choice to stay -- at the SAME price or even lower than the large/impersonal chain hotels -- is the Morgan State House. An historical brownstone off Washington Park on State Street, the MSH is beautiful with all the comforts of home. While the house was almost... More

I wanted to make a comment about this Inn, although I have not stayed there yet, but I hope to. My review is based on the people at the Inn who I have dealt with on the phone. The Inn keepers have been so lovely and have tried so hard to accommodate our needs. I have heard from everyone that... More

Our stay was in August. Perfect weather to enjoy the park across the street. We got lucky and parked in front of building. The building is much better than we thought or the pictures represent. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This was our first stay in a B&B. This place set the bar very high for our next... More

First time I stayed here. Very nice B&B. The staff was extremely helpful. The first floor is very comfortable for the guests to relax. The entire place is very clean and nicely decorated. I had a view of Washington Park.

Friendly and welcoming staff. Room was decorated nicely but pretty average for the price and chilly at night! Parking was ridiculous. They do have an off-street lot for an extra $10 a day but you have to walk to the parking lot and need a key and a code- a real inconvenience especially in the winter.

I arranged for me and four colleagues to stay here for an evening when we were in Albany on business. The building is beautiful and the rooms are furnished perfectly. The neighborhood is also lovely and has restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. We were all so impressed with the staff and felt welcome from the minute we arrived.... More

We were so pleased to land at The Morgan State House at the end of a long journey. The Christmas décor, the hospitable service & the privacy of the accommodations were a welcome! We are so glad we stayed and plan to stay again when we return to the Albany area. Thank you Morgan State House!

This B&B was researched by our son who spent 3 years in Albany, Pleasantly surprised by the great service and warm welcome from the staff. The home was unique and well restored. rooms were generous and full of amenities. Location was nice given the park across the street. Food for breakfast was terrific

We've stayed here a number of times while on business in Albany. We MUCH PREFER the main house. The public rooms are charming as are all the guest rooms. The Annex, on the other hand, is not so lovely. The one and only time I stayed there, the room was dark, dingy and dusty. I didn't feel at all comfortable... More

We stayed in the annex which is a mix of apartments and rooms. The room I had was spotless, very bright with lots of windows. The furnishings were lovely, very welcome change after the chain hotels. I had a great night's sleep and had just the right breakfast the next morning at the main house. It really was like being... More
