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. The staff was very friendly and made some excellent suggestions for food & drinks within walking distance. Also it was located just 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.

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.

This is a great find in downtown Albany. Not only is it convenient and a great value but the service is outstanding. While some parts of the hotel could use some polish, everything was clean. While there may be a stain or two, you could tell that everything was CLEAN. More importantly, service was so good, I was confident if... More

If you are travelling through, arriving late and leaving early...this is a good value. Restaurant and bar in the hotel have been closed and used only for a complementary breakfast. Place is a little tired but the room was clean, bathroom large and the bed was very comfortable. Staff where attentive and polite. Price is definitely right.
