The buffet for breakfast is simple, but plenty to choose from and staff is ever... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at this hotel for a local wedding in the area. The bride/groom had reserved a block of rooms for the guest months in advance. Some of the other people who arrived were told they had no reservations or they had been "lost". There was a lot of confusion and a hectic process to... More

I would recommend this hotel. Good location. Stayed here for business over the past few months. You really can't beat the value for the money. Centrally located, not too far from downtown Albany and public transportation. Easy access from the Northway and the NY Thruway. Clearly a lot of upgrade dollars have been put into this hotel over the past... More

Our daughter just graduated from The College of Saint Rose. We stayed at the Best Western Sovereign Hotel - Albany every time we came up to visit her. While not luxurious, the rooms are clean, the breakfast is good, and it's economical.

I stayed one night en route from Ohio to New Hampshire and my stay was less than satisfactory. The hotel is run down and there was some sort of construction going on in the lobby which made it very difficult to check in. Once I got to my room I discovered that the carpet was all wet...literally soaked through which... More

i attend suny and stay here 4 days per week. The staff is excellent, very courteous, very helpful, very pleasant and friendly. The hotel has been under remodeling for all of the past five months which does not allow us to best appreciate it. An improvement in breakfast offerings would be greatly appreciated and could be accomplished easily enough without... More

Cleaning staff were cursing at each other, Chicken enchlatas and blab beans were really good.. Commode backed up. Noisy 5th floor. I think from equipment on roof. Hard to get to generally poor location fortravelor/
