I booked a Bachelor Party for a two night stay this past weekend with Emily in the Sales Department at 74 State. She couldn't have been more helpful. Planning an event is stressful, but she made the hotel booking process really easy for my group. Emily responded very fast to my emails and accomodated me with whatever I needed. She... More

My son and I stayed at this hotel while on a road trip. Check-in was fast and efficient. The lady at the front desk was terrific during our entire visit. We had a problem with the phone, and she took care of it right away. The room was fine, but we had a tiny, half window with no view. It... More

We stayed at 74 State before a concert at The Palace Theater. When we arrived we were greeted by welcoming staff who provided us with directions to local pubs, gave us free bottled water and helped us figure out parking and free wi-fi. Our room was very roomy, the bathroom was enormous and the beds were clean and comfy. They... More

Great location for events at Times-Union Center, spacious rooms and the most comfortable beds ever! Service and Staff were excellent and very friendly. Free breakfast, too! The only reason this review isn't even better is because there is no longer a working bar or restaurant on premises. Overall an excellent choice!

We stayed at 74 State on a recent trip to Albany for an event at the Times Union Center. Staffers were exceptionally friendly and helpful and the hotel itself was very nice.

We stayed here on a Sat nite and was very pleased with the courtesy of the staff, the amenities in the room and the continental breakfast. We had tickets to the Hart Theatre ("The Egg") and it was an easy walk. I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay here again when in the Albany area.

We stayed here just for one night after dropping the hire car back at Hertz (located in the nearby Hilton...which was full). Lovely reception from the staff and a little welcome goody bag.
