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!

Staff very friendly and helpful and pointed us in the right direction with some restaurant recommendations. Would recommend anyone going to Albany to book this hotel. Very... More

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 had a junior suite that was terrific, especially the bathroom. The location was perfect as the Times Union Center was right around the corner and there are... More

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.

The hotel is very nice and antique. I appreciate the design, cleanliness and the free buffet breakfast. What stood out to me most was the customer service; Andrew Patterson, who was the receptionist at the front desk. He was extremely helpful and courteous.

Parked right in front for valet parking. Greeted by helpful front desk staff. Room was clean and bed very nice. Enjoyed the continental breakfast before we had to check out. Would stay there again. Just around the corner from Times Union Center.
