Stayed on a Saturday night. Had a room also with a very small window, but overall the room was very nice. The free breakfast buffet was good and staff was very nice. Being there on the weekend, parking was readily available on the street.

I stayed at the 74 State hotel for one night on a business trip. The other nearby business hotel was completely sold out for some inexplicable reason. The staff are terrific and the location can't be beat, if you want something walkable to the Capitol. My room, however, was grim. The window (intentional use of singular here) was about 1... More

Great service! Both Andrew W. And Andrew P went above and beyond to insure a pleasant stay. I would stay here again in a heartbeat because of their hospitality. The beds were really comfy as well. I really enjoyed my stay at 74 State.

On a recent trip to Massachusetts, we decided to overnight in Albany and chose 74 State due to its downtown location and price. Upon arrival, check-in was a breeze. Coffee (served 24 hours), lemon water and snacks were available in the lobby. The lobby and halls appeared a bit tired but very clean. Our room (#706) was quite spacious, clean... More

We were there for 1 night and it was good. Friendly people all around from the valet to the front desk. Clean room and comfortable beds. Only problem: thin walls but the guy in the next room only lasted 10 seconds to please her woman so it was not that bad. Free breakfast was a plus.

This is a great find in downtown Albany. Not only is it convenient and a great value but the service is outstanding. While some parts of the hotel could use some polish, everything was clean. While there may be a stain or two, you could tell that everything was CLEAN. More importantly, service was so good, I was confident if... More

If you are travelling through, arriving late and leaving early...this is a good value. Restaurant and bar in the hotel have been closed and used only for a complementary breakfast. Place is a little tired but the room was clean, bathroom large and the bed was very comfortable. Staff where attentive and polite. Price is definitely right.

Recently I attended a wedding in the Albany area and this hotel was recommended. I'm glad I found out about it. It's a small older hotel with real bathrooms not cramped water closets. The room was pleasant, clean and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Also, valet parking is very convenient and... More

Albany has long been a favorite stop on our travels. Great architecture, great surrounding countryside, great neighborhoods, great parks and great museums. The downer has always been the sad decline over the decades of the core area along lower State Street. This stretch is an American classic, rising from the long closed train stations at the base up toward the... More

I booked this hotel through AAA. I always read reviews on Tripadvisor before booking. I really analyze what people write and then go as far as seeing if they just do nothing but bash hotels. I discount those opinions as those are people that can never be satisfied. Anyway, we stayed at this hotel as a stop over before continuing... More
