“Could be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2011 via mobile

Sat at the bar had some drinks and food, at this point have been on hold for a hamburger for ever. Hope it is worth the wait. Nothing at this place is cheap, thought I was back in DC, this is upstate New
York after all. They do a lot of functions ie weddings etc. the hamburger was good and would rec it.

Thr hotel changed my room from a suit to a king but did not inform me

Great pet friendly option in the Albany area. The Century House accommodated us and our large dog with no problem. There were plenty of places to walk our dog without going too far, including a great walking trail behind the hotel. The staff were all very friendly and helpful for the most part. It was very convenient having access to the Century House restaurant, all though there were quite a few weddings and private parties going on throughout the weekend which got noisy at times. Nice that you could order room service from the full hotel menu, although we were charged extra on our bill for the room service without explanation. There was no added gratuity or fee disclosed when we called and the front desk did not refund the difference when brought to their attention. The food was ok, but could use some improvements, but still better than your average hotel restaurant or room service food. The free breakfast buffet was a nice feature. The room was clean and well maintained. All in all, I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: This is a pet friendly hotel. If you have allergies be sure to ask for a non pet room. If you dine a...

My family had a wonderful stay at the Century House this August during Travers week. Hurricane Irene arrived while we were there and the staff at Century House did an outstanding job of taking care of their guests. The restaurant stayed open even though only a limited number of staff members were able to make it to work during the storm. Other restaurants were closed in the area, but we were well taken care of by everyone at Century House.

On our drive from Cape Cod back to Canada we had reserved this hotel because of it's location just off the expressway north of Albany. We were very pleasantly surprised. Clean and superbly comfy beds with duvets in a quiet location away from the highway. Also the restaurant associated with the propery was excellent and service was very attentive. To our surprise, guests receive a free shrip cocktail.

Well worth the small detour.

Hotels can be so impersonal... But not the century house! We were so pleasantly surprised to feel more like old friends coming home than paying customers receiving a service. Although their location is a little off the beaten path, with the breakfast included, the restaurant on site (the lobster chowder is amazing), the outdoor pool, a nature trail and the most comfortable hotel beds we have ever slept in, we were in need of nothing more! This was our first stay but will definitely not be our last!
