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

I stayed at Parker Inn and Suites about 2 weeks ago. Check in went smoothly and the room was lovely. Check out staff were amazing and went above and beyond what one would expect! I would recommend staying here.

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! Starting with the front desk staff who couldn't be nicer, this small, boutique hotel exceeded our expectations. Our room had a king size bed, sleeper... More

My first experience with the Parker Inn was with their old management,and it was disorganized and unreliable (and this was booking a room block for my wedding). Once the new management came in they went out of their way to make sure my experience was good, from helping me find a room for my father-in-law, to even bringing up things... More

I cannot speak to the experience as a guest. I have been traveling both domestically and abroad for over a quarter century, for both leisure and work, and I have booked more hotel rooms than I could possibly calculate. Perhaps I've been lucky because in all those years, the first time I ever booked a room and received a confirmation... More

Had a very enjoyable stay. Top floor suite overlooking State street. Located right next door to Proctor's Theater. Great bed and nice new appliances. Rain shower water head in bath. Friendly staff. Would stay again.

I have never felt not save before in a hotel - but this was the first time I was a little worried for my safety - an un-manned hotel through the night and just a key pad to get back in at night!! I had two nights in this place, the room was very clean and tidy - unfortunately the... More

I'm traveling across the country as a cast member of the new tour of "The Phantom of the Opera" and when I was able to reserve a 2-week stay amidst a busy Union college reunion weekend, I was elated. In a city where I'd normally have to travel 20 minutes from Albany to get to work (as did the majority... More

I used the Parker Inn for a block for my wedding and stayed there myself with my bridesmaid. I worked extensively with a manager several months before the wedding, but none of the promises that were made by the hotel were fulfilled without extra work and request on my part. Instead of being a seamless and positive experience, there were... More

The rooms are dirty and in disrepair. The first room I was given had a non-working lock on the door, liberal construction dust, stained and chipped furniture, the light bulb was not screwed in and the lamp not plugged in. The bedspread had a bug crawling on it. I was upgraded to a room with a kitchenette. The floor was... More
