I have stayed at the Holiday Inn numerous times while in Albany on business. I never have had a bad stay, but the Hotel is a bit outdated and has a rather strange layout with a combination multi floor guess room areas and a ground floor room section. This trip the elevator was out of commission the entire time and that made hauling luggage up the stairs a little less than fun. At check-in the clerk made no mention of this fact and did not ask if I had any physical disabilities that might have prevented me from climbing stairs. I would have hoped were I an elderly person that might have been brought to my attention. In addition the shower curtain came apart and leaked water on the floor. It should have been replaced a long time ago.
Otherwise, it was a clean and very comfortable room. The restaurant has good food and good service but is a bit pricey. They have an outstanding breakfast buffet but charge $12.00 for it at the same time their competition across the street has nearly as good a buffet and it is complimentary.
Don't me wrong, I always enjoy staying at the Holiday Inn, but there are more modern and luxurious hotels in the same neighborhood for about the same money.
