“Great rooms & amenities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

Stayed for 3 days in August. Nicely furnished 2 room suites. Great free breakfats and the free cocktails and dinner makes it a great value.

The staff is so friendly that it is really like coming home. The hotel and the rooms are very clean. When we had a problem they fixed it immediately. The food which was served was very good. It was so much like being home that I actually miss being there.

We stayed at this hotel twice - one was a 4 week stay and the second was a 2 week stay. I just found out we will be going back to NY so that my husband can take another class - we will be staying at this same hotel again if there is room available.

Room Tip: We reserved our rooms in advance since we were flying all the way from Oregon, we wanted to make sur...

As a longtime Hilton Honors member, I've had many opportunities to visit various Homewood Suites properties. Concluding that many folks will already be aware of the consistency and service of the Hilton chain, I sometimes neglect to even post reviews on Trip Advisor. I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Albany Homewood Suites with 6 family members including two small grandchildren; 3 and 1.

The 4th floor corner suite was fabulous. The gratis breakfast buffet every morning was adequate and so convenient for our large group. But I submit this posting because of the warm and friendly service we received. Carmen and a young lady from Ghana (cannot remember her name) greeted the kids with big smiles everytime we encountered them in the hall. The kids brought a few toys with them and after our room was cleaned, they arranged Fischer Price figures on the coffee table or whatever which made for a pleasant surprise every afternoon when we returned to the room after area sightseeing. Instead of being disgruntled at the various Cheerios and finger smears on the walls, the Homewood Suite Albany staff seemed pleased that we had chosen their property for a summer visit. (By the way, the anticipated airport noise was NOT a factor. My grandson instead loved seeing takeoffs out our 4th story window) Thank you.

Thank you for this incredible review of our hotel. It is so great that you have taken the time to recognize Carmen and Marilyn (from Guyana) and how they made you and your family feel welcome. Our housekeeping team or suitekeepers, as we refer to them, are the absolute backbone of this hotel and, as you have noted, it's not only about cleaning your room but the little things such as smiling and arranging toys in a particular way that make them so wonderful. They truly are the unsung "heroes" of this and most hotels. Thank you so much.

This is truly a great choice for a stay in Albany. Fantastic friendly service by all staff encountered. My suite was very clean and well fitted and furnished. The breakfast was fine and the evening meal (complimentary) was much better than I expected.
Overall a stellar choice for Albany and would definitely return.

Room Tip: Take a 1bedroom suite!

Thanks for the really great review. Travelers like yourself who experience what we have to offer and share it with the world on a stage such as tripadvisor is a form of advertising that we could never put a price on. We cannot thank you enough!

I took my daughter college hunting and chose Homewood Suites because of the great price for a suite - a bedroom with two doubles for my teenagers and a pull-out in the living room for Dad. The place was clean, staff was very friendly, and it was quiet, especially considering the freeway on one side and busy four lane street on the other. We took advantage of shuttle van to get us out to dinner the two nights we were there, and there were plenty of choices for nearby restaurants.

The breakfast wasn't great, but OK - mostly precooked items that got nuked to serve, but tasty nonetheless. I would stay there again and recommend others to do so as well...

Thank you for the awesome review! It was great to see that you enjoyed your stay so much. We have won back to back Food and Beverage awards, so to see your comment about our breakfast was a little disheartening but motivational. We will do our best to improve the food so that next time you can rate us even higher! ; )

I stayed at this hotel for six days while at a conference in Albany.

The room was a nice change from the standard hotel room. The suite was perfect for a business traveler who can appreciate the living and kitchen area.

The entire facility itself was clean, modern and comfortable. The pool and hot tub area were also clean and well kept.

It was great to be able to get back to the hotel and be able to have a drink and a light meal (at no additional cost) in the lovely, well landscaped courtyard.

I also used the fitness center while there, which was well equipped but small and crowded at 5 am!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would highly recommend this hotel. I will be back again when staying in the area.

Thank you for this really great review. I'm so happy that you had such a great stay with us but want you to know that we will be expanding our fitness center by year end. We will be almost doubling it in size and adding more equipment. I hope you come back and get to experience it!

I was a long term guest at the hotel. Used to come every week. I requested a specific room and was given one almost every time.

Rooms are very clean. Hotel arranges social hours every tuesday. It is either a poker night or a backet ball throw competetion. Winner gets free Hilton points.

Hotel serves breakfast and dinner every day. Included in the rate. Great value.

Hotel staff is courteous and friendly.
