A very pleasant experience at 74 State. The rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable, modern. The hotel has a friendly & accommodating staff, & a great breakfast. And it is right in downtown Albany. Can't ask for more!

My husband and I stayed here for the Eric Church concert at Times Union Center! We loved it! The location was excellent- we literally just had to walk around the corner to the venue!

We came into town for the Eric Church concert and we booked this hotel because of its proximity to the Times Union Center. It was great, a stones throw away and we were also able to walk to this great place for dinner called City Beer Hall! Hotel is clean, close to everything and the staff goes above & beyond!... More

I stayed at this hotel because I was seeing a show at the Palace Theater and this was a short walk away. The location and price (approx $80) was the biggest draw to this hotel. It also had free WiFi/breakfast, a comfortable bed and rooms were reasonably sized but this is what I didn't like about it: -no fridge in... More

I have not been in a hotel with staff this nice in a long time. I was greeted at the door; welcomed at the desk; given a "goodie" bag with Oreos, potato chips and bottled water; asked if I needed help with dinner reservations; and given directions to the Capital Rep Theatre upon my arrival. The next day, the breakfast... More

My girlfriend & I wanted to drive a few hours & stay in a city we'd never been in for a night, for dinner & entertainment. Albany was 3 hours away, & had a comedy show going on that night. The 74 State hotel was less than $90, & located right downtown, a 7 minute walk to Angelo's 677 Prime... More

First off, no parking lot or garage. $16 to valet park or drive around the block a dozen times until a parking place opens up. Friendly staff and a cold water at check in. No ice bucket or fridge to keep it cold though. Carpets are stained, furniture is scratched. One tiny window with blinds that don't reach the sill.... More
