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

Great place to stay in the center of things. Came on a weekday; was able to park overnight on the street. Clean. Chocolate-chip cookies and lemon-flavored ice water on tap in the lobby. Well-stocked free breakfast, waffle-iron included. About a 3-minute walk to the waterfront park & the riverside running path. Only confusing part: Forgot the name of the hotel... More

Nice boutique hotel in downtown Albany. Very large size rooms with nice furniture. Great friendly service at check-in and check-out. We really enjoyed our stay there. One thing though is that the free breakfast was very very basic. We would return there if in Albany again!

We stayed at 74 State this last week. The hotel is an older building that looks like it has been remodeled recently and the room and bathrooms were large with a comfortable bed and layout. The view wasn't much to look at, although we could see a little of the river from ours, but the room was comfortable enough that... More

74 th State is an older Hotel, in the midst of 18th Century historical Albany. The hotel lobby adorned in the warmth of wood panels, is spacious and comfortable. The smell of chocolate chip cookies was a nice surprise. The desk clerk was helpful, quickly checked us in and provided us with a verbal tour of hotel amenities. The parking... More

It's under new management so the two for one breskfast from last year is now free. The rooms are large and clean. Bed is really comfortable. The bathroom is large with lots of counter space. On...
