We were very pleasantly surprised by 74 State Hotel. Lobby was nice, front desk staff very courteous and helpful. Rooms were great. Clean, nice size and great bedding. Only complaint was the free breakfast. Arrived downstairs 30 minutes before ending time, and there was no food. No bread, no eggs, no coffee. Staff was very slow to re-stock. Food eventually... More

I booked a room in Albany for a Saturday night though Hotwire and ended up with 74 State. Overall we liked the hotel but did have a few issues with it. PROS: The hotel is in a great location for the Times Union Center (you could walk) and is in a nice area of Albany. They offer valet parking at... More

Was in Albany on business and had to stay overnight. 74 State is very close to the capitol building (around 1/2 mile). The hotel is mostly no-frills: small lobby with a refrigerator full of bottled soft drinks, the rooms are kind of outdated and could use a refresh, but were clean. There are lots of restaurants/bars within walking distance, the... More

Just down the hill from the Capitol, so good location. Room was spacious, bathroom huge. But the bed was saggy and there was only one bedside table next to the king bed which means only one person can read in bed at night.. Decent breakfast. Staff was courteous.

Stayed here overnight on a lobbying trip, and 74 State did the trick for the most part. Room itself was clean and of a decent size. Amenities were OK, but for over $200 on a group rate, would hope for a little more. No bar, no room service, no restaurant, a tired old PC for business services, no minibar/fridge in... More

I was not sure what to expect when I booked a room for $97 in downtown Albany. I expected budget, but it was quite upscale. My room was spacious and the bed was perfect. Bathroom was great with a nice walk in shower. No tub. The staff was courteous and helpful. Gym was all cardio. No weights. Starbucks in the... More

The hotel staff was very accommodating and kind. I was surprising my boyfriend with a night away for his 50+. We couldn't get away some place tropical due to schedules and commitments but 74 State did the trick. We had a room with a fireplace and jacuzzi tub. The accommodations were perfect. The sheets on the bedding could have been... More

I was up in Albany for business and this hotel was recommended to me. I requested a king size bed and a room with a window having been told that there are some windowless rooms. The window as a half window but that was fine. The room was a decent size, the bed so very comfortable with a nice desk... More

I enjoyed the check in process, very quick. The room itself was small (queen) but the bathroom was very large which made up for this. The bed was amazingly soft. I was happy the windows had blackout curtains and we requested a fridge and it was already in the room. The problems: the room was very small and there was... More

I am giving 4 start because I didn't like the hotel, it was my first (and last) staying at "boutique" hotel like this, and I must say I prefer more "modern" ones. Hotel, besides interior decoration and theme, was quite satisfactory (that's why I am giving 4 stars). Location is pretty good, rooms are clean, all in all, it is... More
