Perfect place to stay, friendly staff and very conftable place for sleep and rest after long day of meeting in Albany area. Great place to explore the city as well - near bus # 10 or bus # 11 can take you to Albany downtown in 15 min and to the mall for shopping in 10 min, so you don't... More

While the help were friendly and pleasant and beds/bath were clean the hotel needs to step up to current times. Elevators were small and slow, taking stairs to and from fifth floor was always quicker. There was only one elevator in the lobby and a long walk down a corridor to another. The carpeting in the corridors is dirty with... More

Nice location on Western Ave in Albany. Front desk recommended a nice Mediterranean restaurant down the street. Parking was ample. Hot breakfast was better than the average. Room was pleasant; no negatives to report. Our advance request for a quiet room with an extra pillow was honored. Senior couple.

Over the past several years the Sovereign Hotel has improved their rooms and has improved itself. The rooms are cleaner, the beds are better and the hotel has an overall better appearance. The breakfast is still the same, decent to be included in your stay. WiFi still could be improved. Was able to watch a full Netflix movie without interruption,... More

Hotel is older, needs a deep cleaning and major updating. When we arrived, our room had been given away, despite my having pre-paid for the room and having called the front desk to inform them I would be arriving late...the clerk on duty tried to do what she could, brought a lumpy cot that we had to jam into the...

All the front desk employees went above and beyond to make my stay enjoyable. Swimming pool and room of swimming pool was heated nicely. Hotel room was nice with some reasonable wear and tear to it. The exterior of the building was non-descript, but the interior looked fresh and new.

Near major highways and SUNY. Good parking. Easy access to areas outside Albany. Good choice if you are familiar with the area. However, if you need to be downtown or by the capitol the hotel is a bit distant. Very close to mall with several restaurants.

Would come back and stay again staff were very kind and rooms very clean. Close to down town for the Bruno Mars concert close to mall for my young daughter to shop. Would stay again if back in the area.

The hotel was reasonably priced, clean & friendly. The breakfast went way beyond our expectations! This Best Western will definitely be our hotel choice on future Albany visits. I'm fussy about pillows, so I should have brought my own for the best quality sleep. That's the only negative for me. My husband had no complaints.

The location is convenient to the thruway and also there was an Outback restaurant not too far away which made grabbing a quick dinner after a long drive easy. The decor is a bit old and tired. The pool is under renovation. The breakfast was adequate, nothing to rave about. No raisin bran, but some other cereals. A nice selection... More
