Booked this room a week before our event and the pricing and availability was excellent. Even better once we got there and saw our room. Very enjoyable, room was quiet and near everything we needed. Included complimentary breakfast which was very good.

I was pleasantly surprised by how fresh the facilities are. Evidently from other reviews, renovations have been done recently. The results are great. The room was a single King on the rear of the building which was quiet from street noise. All of the furnishings and the bathroom were brand new. The room itself was very large by city standards...

The hotel was very clean and comfortable and the staff was very polite. We had 3 rooms for 1 night and they gave us rooms all right next to each other which was nice. The beds were comfy and the bathrooms were large. The free breakfast downstairs had a nice selection of foods (pastries, fruit, juices, waffles, eggs, etc.) The... More

A couple months ago I was told by the state we had a mandatory training in Rensselaer NY. I hadn’t been to Albany since 2013 so this was a welcome trip. When they told us the hotel they reserved a block or rooms for under the state rate I knew it was someplace I had not stayed. The 74 State... More

We visited this hotel just this past weekend while visiting a friend living in Albany. 74 State Street is currently converting to a Fairfield Inn, so there was a bit of confusion finding the location. As an out-of-towner, I was looking for a sign or a prominent street number and there was none. Fairfield Inn was clearly marked, but my... More

Front desk and other employees were very polite and helpful. The tubs in the rooms were too high and not user friendly, other wise nice.The young lady at the front desk was very helpful and she seemed to be the one in charge of the inn give her an A PLUS.

The hotel is undergoing renovations to become part of the Marriott collection. The debris and semi-abandoned equipment in different levels make that very obvious. That said, front desk staff were very helpful and attentive. Did not interact with cleaning crew, but from what we saw in the room they were not very thorough in their tasks: found discarded paper and... More

This was one of the nicest hotels I ever stayed at. Very affordable. Also front desk staff is very nice. There is this one guy who works in the evening who really knows how to make guests feel welcomed! Wish I got his name. Overall, great experience.

The 74 State Street Hotel, formerly of the Clarion Collection but in the process of being converted to a Marriott Fairfield Inn, feels like a work in progress and I am not quite sure what to make of it at this juncture - maybe I need a return visit.
