We visited here with family who live in the area. It was a very cool experience. The exterior architecture is beautiful; take a stroll around the property to fully appreciate the building. Part of the historic building had been transformed into a beautiful and modern hotel. The public spaces of the hotel were beautiful! The site served for many years as a residential treatment facility for those suffering from mental illness. We took a guided tour of one of the buildings. The guide was excellent: well-spoken, well-informed, etc.; I appreciated that the tour was a sober explanation of the facility and did not indulge in silly stuff or make light of mental illness. The older section of the building is in disrepair but still had a number of interesting architectural details to take-in, aided by the explanations from the guide. You saw several floors of one of the buildings. Overall, an off-the-beaten-path experience and one we quite enjoyed.

This is such a cool building inside and out. It's not really what you would expect inside but it's very neat. We've been here multiple times. It's cool just to look around. There's also a restaurant/bar which is nice. We've also been to weddings there. I know there are several tours as well, but we haven't done those.

In Depth tour is fantastic with great docents taking inside the complex where no one goes. Excellent presentation of mental health history in the only Kirkbride Whole health complex left standing. State money to build this complex was enormous and you will see Richardsons skills and similarity to the Albany capital. Must see if you can get a reservation. Get a tate of the complex by taking the free audio (7162493874) tour of the ouside to tempt the in depth tour or get brunch at the hotel Henry for a peak at the admin portion of the complex. A touch of the macabe will be felt if you get inside.

Eerie and fascinating. Eating at Hotel Henry was really good! We walked around, but I think they give tours, too.
