The hotel is conveniently located for getting around the Albany area and sits in a row of similar hotel choices on Washington Ave. I've stayed in 4 of them so far and the TownePlace Suites is a very good option. Was in town with my sister and her husband so the two bedroom suite was a perfect choice for us. The bathroom is a little awkwardly set up with the sink in one space and toilet/tub closed off. You wind up with two small spaces which are not very comfortable rather than one decent size bathroom. I get the idea of multiple people using the two spaces but in reality only one person at a time feels comfortable in the area. Our room unfortunately was located directly over the outside door which is opened via card key and slams quite loudly after guests have entered or exited the building. Everything else about the TownePlace Suites was positive. The people at the front desk were always pleasant and helpful, even went so far as to get me some milk from the kitchen area to go with the cereal dinner i purchased from the snack area. The snacks are plentiful and even included frozen dinners and fresh items so you could, if needed, eat in and survive. Our suite had two comfortable bedrooms with TVs as well as a TV in the living area which works well for a group with different viewing tastes. Breakfast is included in the room rate and it's pretty standard fare: toast, bagels, muffins, cereal, yogurt. One bonus is that they have a couple of waffle irons - while i didn't make one, the aroma of waffle cooking lent a great ambience to the breakfast room.
