I was going to book at the Hampton, but since it was full, I ended up at the Parker. It was a pleasant surprise! The reviews on here seemed mixed, but I found that the Parker Inn was a timeless hotel with an interesting history. Many famous people have stayed there and a list is provided in their old-style elevator.... More

This hotel has lots of character and charm. The outside of the hotel retains its old architectural facade but the rooms have been nicely renovated. I loved the old timey elevator (It lists the names of famous people who have stayed at the hotel). In addition, it is located in the middle of downtown so you can walk easily to... More

The rooms are definitely nice. The Parker Inn under new ownership has definitely been revamped. It is in the perfect location for the theatre and restaurants. Their own restaurant is in the renovation process and should open shortly. Parking was not an issue- it is in the back with clearly marked signs. The staff couldn't be nicer. Perfect for either...

I have enjoyed my visits to the Parker Inn over the past few years. The rooms are lovely, modern, and now they have small kitchens included in the last 2 I have used. The bathrooms are beautifully tiled with nice showers, although the shower head in the last room could either be descaled or replaced, the pressure was limited, of... More

I am a seasoned traveler and this place is sub par. Bad enough there is no staff on duty at night, but no staff in the morning?! Because there is no restaurant, I left to get breakfast only to be locked out in sub zero weather. Ratty old elevator, creepy experience. Ugh!

The Parker Inn and Suites is located in the same building as the Proctor's Theater in Schenectady. We had an opportunity to attend a show at the theater and this hotel was the perfect location.

Some things about the Parker Inn are great, some are just terrible. The staff does try, but sometimes need a little prodding. When I had an issue I had to really give specific details of what I wanted to happen and then they got it done in minutes! The water quality is harsh (super chlorinated). The rooms are clean but...

I don't understand the stellar reviews the Parker Inn gets here. It's a cool building next to the historic Proctor's Theater but it was understaffed and incompetent. A total disappointment. No one was there when we got there. Waited in the lobby. Even called and let it ring and ring while we stood there. Finally a young woman came in,... More
