“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Great location, close and convenient to I-787.
Very clean, great service, amazing breakfast. Valet parking included as a service, with a $12 fee. All staff were very friendly. Elevator service was fast as we never waited very long for an elevator. Room was very clean and quite. The HVAC was perfect and functioned as expected.
The entire visit was as expected of Hampton Inn & Suites!
Strongly recommend!

Room Tip: Upper floors are best due to possible city noise.

A good hotel, desk personnel were very nice and helped me find cold medications within walking distance. I was on the top floor and the elevators were very noisy - I was two rooms away and kept the fan running but without the fan I could hear the machinary very clearly. Not sure if this was just the top floor but it was certainly noticable. Breakfast was Hampton Inn standard. Parking behind the hotel was very convenient and the attendants retrieved my car quickly (without a mandatory call ahead).

Room Tip: Ask to stay away from the elevator - especially if you are on the top floor.

This review forms part of a Cosmos tour we took to view the autumn foliage in New England.
This was probably our best hotel ? no complaints. Bed shower etc all excellent along with complimentary breakfast and hotel itself seems well located ? Not much time in Albany but would come again and stay here.

A good central location with big rooms and comfortable beds. Valet car park on site (at extra cost). Free breakfast with a good selection was available during my stay. Recommended. I would stay again.

My business booked this for me. Great hotel and the Empire Floor for women is fabulous. It little difficult for walking because it is at the bottom of the hill from all the sight seeing around the capitol building.

An average hotel. Nothing special, but a good location and a decent price. If you are sensitive to mattresses, I felt the mattress was too firm. Maintenance of the room could have been better. Typical breakfast buffet - nothing exciting.

Booked our weekend here because we purchased tickets at the Palace for the Jerry Seinfeld show. Had a lovely time and the show let out around 9 pm, We wanted to eat so we went into the Hotel's restaurant, Not impressed at all. Very, Very loud atmosphere, Not because of music, but peoples voices couldn't even hear my husband speak to me from across the table and pricey. He ordered a ale and I a wine, $22.18 for cheep wine, We left did order any food ended up eating @ the Olde English Pub Out side on the patio and what lovely people and great food, The Hampton inn it self for an Over night stay couldn't ask for a nicer place and very clean but as far as Restaurant they need help in that area. Just saying

Room Tip: Albany, New York you get free Valet Parking at the Hampton INN , Nice feature
