We stayed at the HGI-SUNY Albany for a week at Thanksgiving 2008. I had to adjust our stay to add two days shortly before arrival, called the hotel directly and they extended the two days requested as well as the rate - bed & breakfast for $109. a night, which I consider a find for this quality hotel. The location is good and although its not close to the airport, it is convenient to most everything else in that area.
Check-in was quick and efficient, and although they don't have anyone to help you to the room, they do have an ample supply of large carts. The room was good size with nice furniture, and upon request they almost instantly brought us two extra racks to hold our open luggage. The Internet was included but local phone service was not, so we used our cell phone - a minor but noticeable inconvenience. Parking is available both around the hotel and in the basement, an unusual but convenient setup.
Breakfast was a combination cooked to order eggs, omelets, pancakes, waffles, etc. plus a very nice buffet with several fruits, juices, rolls, Danish, muffins, etc., as well as potatoes, sausage and bacon plus a daily entré - quiche, a breakfast pudding, etc. Very nice, but perhaps the best part was service by Sharon and her assistant - always prompt, friendly and personal! We had a family gathering there one day, and they made a room available for a private service on Sunday - a very nice touch! They also offer dinner and have a small bar, but we didn't try either as we were busy all week with family and friends.
Our new favorite place to stay in Albany, where we visit regularly. I'm just afraid we won't be able to find that rate or even one near it; it is a real bargain for the cleanliness, comfort and friendly service we experienced! A REAL WINNER!
