I travel all the time and typically I find myself at the same chain hotel time and time again. This weekend our I ended up at the Century House based purely on location. This place is dynamite- clean, outrageously comfortable beds, delicious free breakfast(real eggs!!!!!) and unbelievable service. The tavern restaurant is charming, offers a great menu and has a...

Easy to find. Convenient location. Great tavern with an outstanding menu. Most importantly very comfortable beds and pillows. I frequently travel to Albany. The Century House is a convenient place to stay. Have stayed here before. Will stay here again!

The Century House is very well priced compared to other hotels in the area. Though the decor is dated, the rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, and the showers have good water pressure and a consistent temperature. As a bonus, a cooked buffet breakfast is included in the price of your stay.

This hotel was a weird mix of good and bad. First the good: The rooms are great, decor is very nice, Breakfast buffet is awesome with fresh fruit and the restaurant is very delicious. Here's the bad: The workout room is terrible, the treadmills are not grounded properly so they literally zap you every 3 seconds while you are running.... More

Had such a great experience at the Century House! The rooms are lovely and the hotel is charming. The free breakfast is so much more than what was expected...wonderful food and presentation. The thing that stands out the most, however, was the hospitality and courtesy of the entire staff. The whole experience was exceptional.

This place is part of the Choice Hotels and was very different from the standard hotel. An older hotel with charming rooms and a great free (full) breakfast. We also had dinner at their restaurant and the food was delicious. Would definitely stay here again.

30 of us from our suburban neighborhood had a nice dinner in one of the several private rooms at the Century House. The food was great and the service exceptional. Give it a try if you've not been back there in a few years.

Century House is a comfortable, no frill, yet, well appointed property in Latham which is in the Albany metropolitan area. The room I stayed had a full bathroom, two double beds, a small desk, a fridge and microwave plus a coffee maker. They also offer complimentary tea and coffee next to the reception desk. Breakfast was included....eggs, sausages, bacon, french... More

When you see "Historic Hotel" one never is quite sure what you will get. Will it be ancient rooms that are not business friendly or rooms that have been updated but have kept their character? In this instance - it was the later. Rooms were nicely furnished - work well for the business traveler as long as you do not... More

Friendly staff and convenient resaurant with good food at a reasonable price. Room was very nice! It was very enjoyable to be able to stay and to dine here as well. So much so that the following week I went out of my way to stay here again as opposed to another location 20 miles away.
