This was a beautiful hotel located right in downtown Albany. It was within walking distance of everything! The beds were extremely comfortable, which is often hard to find in a hotel. The bar was beautiful decorated as was the room. I would defiantly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Albany area!
