I really enjoyed my stay here - the staff was very friendly and helpful, and my room was quiet, well-appointed and comfortable. Great location, nice amenities! My only complaint is their coffee - both times I drank it, there was a LOT of....debris....in the bottom of my cup. They definitely weren't coffee grounds, just dark floating specks, and I wondered... More

Was greeted by a smiling face and warm attitude, it got better from there. The entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Any advice they gave was spot on (They know where the amazing food, beer and, people are). The room (king size with jacuzzi tub) was awesome. Great view out the full wall of windows. walking distance to SOOOO... More

Lovely hotel that is currently being renovated. Rooms are very comfortable and breakfast is good. The front desk staff were super, helpful and friendly. Noise was not a problem. Great location but the valet parking is a bit of a challenge

74 State was under construction so it wasn't very pleasant to stay there. The only thing nice about it was how close downtown Albany is. Our room didn't have a window with any natural day light so it was dark and we had to rely on lamps. There is no pool. The breakfast was subpar, I've had better at Best... More

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.

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!!!
