I phoned from BWI airport at around 10:30 p.m. when I knew there was no way I was going to get to Albany in time for dinner - or even a drink. They arranged to deliver food, wine, and water to my room, for which I was very grateful at 1 a.m. having eaten only Southwest peanuts all day while suffering through delay after delay. The shuttle from the airport is invaluable, especially in such bad weather, and the hotel is very comfortable. It always seems a little expensive, but when you deduct the cost of parking at the airport, it is much more reasonable.
