“Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Alexis at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Beautiful hotel right downtown with good security. The rooms have a nice kitchen and everything is updated. The inn is full of history with a list of celebs who have stayed here. I would suggest that this place be your first stop if you are looking for a hotel.

had to go to a wedding in Schenectady. was told of the parker inn. called to make reservation. my first question: do you have early check in. I was assured they did. he even asked me what time I wanted. when we arrived at that time, not one, but two different women told us there was no early check in. refused to even discuss it. " check in is at 3:00." end of story. when my daughter arrived at 2;50, THEY REFUSED TO LET HER CHECK IN UNTIL 3. seriously??? she tried to explain that she had to get ready for a wedding that she was in. tough... check in 3:00. what in the world has happened to customer service. the primary reason I stayed there was because I was assured there was early check in. we were only there overnight, but we didn't see one other guest. then the room...adequate but not exceptional. the toilet seat was falling off, but they did send someone within the hour to fix that. you'd think they could provide a tea bag and a box of tissues. makes me wonder what in the world they were doing while forcing us to twiddle our thumbs until 3:00. certainly not stocking up on non existent amenities. only 2 small, flat pillows for the bed and no extra to be found. and after 11 p.m. no one to ask for one. they neglected to mention when I made the reservation that the restaurant was closed. we were told the hotel is under new management. I hope they read this and if they do, three pieces of advice. 1) take a course of customer service. we weren't asking for anything extraordinary, just to be able to check in between 1-2 as we were told we could. 2) your amenities are pathetic. I have stayed at $89.00 a night motels that have done better . and lastly, you might want to institute a dress code ( a thin white dress with no underwear seems a bit unprofessional)and insist your employees actually stay at the desk. i have no doubt this will be my first, and last, trip to the parker inn. I would advise anyone who is thinking about staying there to do some homework on the other available inns and if you still choose the parker, keep your expectations very low.

Room Tip: stay somewhere else.
