Set in a renovated hotel attached to the old Proctor Theater in old downtown. Hotel history is that of a place where well known actors and their lady friends lived in the hay day of vaudeville the rooms are large and clean with large, we'll provided bathrooms. Staff for the most part was very friendly and helpful. The front desk... More

After looking over the hotel offerings in the Capitol District we were fortunate to select The Parker Inn and Suites. Great location, spacious rooms, oversized bathrooms, luxurious linens and an attentive friendly staff. The cost? Less then the local chain hotels!

The room had a full size TV on top of a full size refrigerator, with IKEA bar stools that were definitely not durable for hotel use and were breaking. The TV was up so high you'd get a neck-ache watching it. Total design disaster all around. I love the idea of re-starting an historic hotel, but something went really wrong... More

My husband and I were visiting from out of town and chose the Parker Inn and Suites. Parking is in the back of the hotel. After parking, you enter through a door in the back into a large hall that connects to the historic and beautiful Proctors Theater. The hall has a number of stores and entrances to the theater,...

We stayed at the Parker Inn last night in room 305. After reading some of the older reviews, we weren't sure what to expect. Obviously renovations have been completed. There is no noise. New management, Mazzone Hospiality, is on the right track. I hope they keep the rates as they are. We don't need a pool or the 60% higher... More

We stayed here just one night for UGC graduation - loved the hotel! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because we had trouble with the air conditioning - couldn't get it to cool down the room. I will definitely be returning as this is a great boutique hotel, close to Proctor's and restaurants.

We were in the President's Suite for my college reunion. Overall the experience was GREAT! I would have given 6 stars but we did have some housekeeping/maintenance issues in our room (no towel bar, missing blackout curtain, light bulb out, dirty sheets on pull out). However, the staff could not have been nicer!! It is my understanding that they are... More

I used to stay here all the time. Liked not being in a chain hotel. Yesterday. Super rude woman at check in, had to ramble on and on about not smoking and the $250 fine even though I don't smoke. Then I had to go out and put a parking tag on my car or "be towed" per the nice... More

When on a college tour with my daughter, we stopped in Schenectady to visit my niece at Union College. My brother recommended we stay at The Parker Inn downtown, and I'm so glad we did!
