I would not recommend the Best Western on Western Ave in Albany, NY. There was strong odor throughout the hotel. The odor did not continue into the room but the bathroom water had a strong odor when it was used.

I was visiting my mother in the Hospital in Albany and was recommended to this Best Western about 15 minutes away. Very economical for the price I paid through the hospital but I was by myself. Friendly staff and all the usual amenities but if you can spend a little more you may want the Marriot or Hilton right by... More

Excellent service and very clean and comfortable. Will likely be staying here again as I am a travel nurse and value my comfort and sleep! Very close to the hospital where I am currently working. Enjoyed the on site restaurant as well.

This is a really good place to stay when I'm on a business trip. Clean rooms, good breakfast and friendly staff. It is really easy to access and tons of good local restaurant within a couple minutes of the the hotel.

Great service, good food and awesome amenities. The staff is simply the best. The facility is located near several excellent eateries and bars. My particular bathroom could use an upgrade. Other than that, it was great.
