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

74 State is a great hotel at a wonderful price. Great location (downtown - for work). Friendly staff and this place is soon to become a Marriott property - Fairfield Inn - so be on the lookout. One of the rooms had a hot water issue and they moved me to a different room in 15 mins time and evaluated... More

The night before a big expo that I was in as an exhibitor, I had driven my truck which was having some issues and needed to be on the convention center floor very early in the morning so I decided with the weather I was better served staying overnight. I chose 74 State that I was delighted I had given... More

Plenty of towels, plenty of electrical outlets, free wifi, and good selection of TV programming. The staff is very nice and free breakfast was quite generous. The bathroom was clean; looked like it was recently redone. The window was a 1' x 3' tucked in the corner of the room that looked out on an alley. The room is a... More

I accompanied my husband on a quick 1 night business trip yesterday and he was lucky enough to get a room here. The location was perfect for our needs, just a short walk to the event venue.

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.
