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

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

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.
