Due to an unexpected and unpleasant traveling situation, I was recently stranded at Albany Airport (a.k.a. longest security screening line in the world :( for a couple of days. The Quality Inn & Suites on the Troy-Schenectady Road was recommended. Free shuttle to and from airport was a huge help, with hotel manager, staff, and shuttle driver graciously accommodating.
I must especially praise the hotel desk staff, Louis (or Mr. Lewis?) and the manager, a very kind lady whose name I'm sorry I don't recall. Their professionalism, courtesy, and compassion were a bright spot during what had turned out to be a vacation-from-hell.
The room was very reasonably price, especially considering the free airport shuttle.
My room was on the second floor of the main building, and was perfectly clean and surprisingly spacious. The bed was very comfortable, with nice linens, and the room was really quiet both day and night in spite of heavy traffic along the roadways nearby.
There was no smell of cigarette smoke as one reviewer at Google Maps experienced, except faintly and only out in the upstairs landing/hallway area.
This is obviously an older hotel which has been partly renovated, but they're also obviously trying hard to make things as nice as possible.
The breakfast buffet was perfectly fine, and the coffee great. An afternoon cookies, fruit, and beverages buffet, complimentary, also perfectly fine and certainly welcome.
I used the business center downstairs, which was small but certainly adequate, with all the necessary items one might need.
Across the parking lot, a rather large and very nice Asian restaurant ("Sake") was convenient, and takeout order yielded generous portions. Some of the items tasted great, others not so much. Very reasonably priced, though, especially considered the generous portions. Salad and other veggie items fresh and tasty.
The two days I spent at this hotel waiting for my flight home were, seriously, the best part of my vacation. I felt totally safe, and very much appreciate the manager, staff, and shuttle driver.
A special "thank you" to Louis or Mr. Lewis (I'm sorry I didn't catch the correct spelling), for arranging everything and being so helpful especially in light of my very late arrival time and very early departure time.
