My second visit to this downtown Albany hotel this year. Consistent with my earlier visit I found the hotel room clean and comfortable, the hotel lobby nice and service very good. The location was very convenient. For the price, this is a very good value, but it is not an exceptional or special property. I could stay here one or two nights, but not a place I would choose for a special event or longer term stay. Perhaps the room I had (corporate rate) was one of the basic rooms on the property. There may be better rooms. Mine was on the 4th floor facing the parking lot at the rear of the building. The pick up and/or delivery of a dumpster at about 5:30 AM woke me up and I was not able to get back to sleep. The fluorescent/CFL lighting in the rooms gives it a "cheap" feel. But neither the early wake up or the "cheap" lighting affects my overall very good rating. This is a good place for an overnight stay if you find yourself in the area and in need of overnight accomodations.
