We had stayed at this hotel almost 30 years ago and were not disappointed with our recent stay. The rooms were clean and nicely-decorated and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The interior courtyard is designed to look like a colonial village square and is very charming. The bar/pub was cozy and not very crowded. Our dinner in the lovely-appearing Scrimshaw restaurant was the only disappointing part of our experience. My husband enjoyed his meal, but mine was mediocre: both my salad and entree. There was a talented pianist playing which made our dining experience better, however. We would definitely stay here if we come to Albany again, but would choose somewhere else to eat dinner. Our breakfast in the other spot was tasty, but overpriced.
