WOW! After 12 days traveling around Canada in interacting with Canadians we went through culture shock here. True New Yorkers...with attitude! Not very pleasant or helpful. Desk clerk # 1 sent me to there website vs. helping me at the front desk to solve a Hilton Honors problem...Clerk #2 (an hour later) helped me fix it at the front desk... More

Hilton Albany is a really nice newly renovated hotel in the heart of Downtown. Great alternative to the high rise hotels in the area. The hotel is primarily composed of 360+ rooms with a large banquet space. It is very low key and quiet for relaxing by the pool. No crowds or noise . The rooms are very spacious and... More

The Hilton in Albany is in a very convenient location in the heart of old Albany. The hotel has been renovated and updated for the most part and is pleasant and open. Breakfast buffet was the normal with made to order omelettes. The odd thing in the room that I was in was that the very small bathroom had been... More

My wife had to go to Albany for business and I decided to join her. What a great location in the heart of downtown Albany. I was able to walk to several attractions and it is blocks away from the capitol. The front desk was very helpful with providing me with recommendations and directions daily. The room was great and... More

Stayed over-night while attending a relative's wedding reception. The hotel is adjacent to NY Routes 87 and 787 that afford easy access via auto. It is a 15-story, imposing building in Albany's Capitol Hill area. Our arrival pinpointed the only negative about the hotel: limited temporary parking at the hotel's entrance that requires unloading baggage, and then driving your car... More

We usually stay at Hilton's or Marriott's. This was the first time at this hotel. Definitely not family friendly. You have to park in a parking garage and the parking garage is not connected to the hotel. Extremely difficult to bring all of your bags in one trip. There were none of the usual amenities and all things in the... More

The recently renovated Albany Hilton is a great hotel if you have business in the Capitol region. It is a beautiful facility, has a great pool/whirlpool/fitness center, has much better than normal hotel food and is a great place for meetings and conferences. The rooms are nicely appointed, and have a refrigerator and coffee maker which are very convenient. The... More
