The lobby was undergoing some major reno's so took a little away from our stay. The location for downtown Albany was perfect and the room was clean and very comfortable with fridge and a great coffee machine. One disappointment the 24"wide window - oh well the view wasn't much!

I expected really plush and high-end accommodations and that is what we found, but not at first. Always call the venue/hotel after booking a reservation with any discount travel service and confirm your reservation details. Don't be afraid to ask (nicely) for a king-size bed. It will save you a lot of headaches and frustration. The last thing any weary... More

We didn't have a reservation, but we luckily scored a room for last weekend when we arrived Friday afternoon. I ran in, asked if they could accommodate us for two nights, ran back out to tell my boyfriend that they could, we parked and registered. Kudos to the desk staff, Then...I mentioned that it was my birthday, and we were... More

This hotel is under renovation. I knew this only after I booked via Hotwire. I think Hotwire or the hotel should inform the customers a priori. Any way, our stay was not so bad. The room was clean but has a narrow window. Hotel itself is a narrow building on an inclined hill. A staff was very kind but many... More

Yes it is undergoing construction but it is perfectly lovely. The rooms are brand spanking new and large. The Staff couldn't be more accommodating. Given the recent reviews I was petrified to stay here and wound up being so satisfied and pleased. Love it!!!

We stayed here the night before catching an early train to NYC. It is an older, downtown boutique hotel. The building seems to be showing it age, but they seem to be committed to getting the facilities where they need to be. Renovations were in process, but staff was willing to go the extra mile to make the stay as... More
