Right across the street from SUNY Albany... It looks small out outdated from the outside. The lobby is small, the elevator very outdated. Get past that.
Room was on the 5th floor. Quiet, all amenities present. Beds comfortable, pillow selection good.
Wall paper and tub surrounds sorta yucky, but clean. They've updated with new shower curtains, curved shower curtain rods and (most excellent) rainshower shower heads. Pressure for the 5th floor good, water was hot. Shampoo/conditioner too random to use, didn't try them.
Wifi was strong and fast.
They have a bar/restaurant. Food was okay, prices were on the high side, but okay. They gave me a $5 coupon (off of $15) at checkin. Almost enough for a glass of wine, and no complaints about that.
Room layout is a little crowded and the furnishings are clean and maintained, though they're getting to the point that they'll need to be replaced soon.
Breakfast in the morning was hot and decent.
Check in was easy, check out was easy. Parking not a problem. Recommend.
