I stayed in the historic house... (the life long home of Alice Morgan Wright - look her up!). This place should be studied for How To Do It Right. The kitchen is stocked with coffee/tea/bakery snacks, etc... and I was encouraged to help myself. I was even shown where to find the dishes. Hello? I felt like a welcome and appreciated guest from the moment I walked in. I enjoyed breakfast on the patio... after years of covid and hotels calling granola bars breakfast, it was AMAZING to be offered a mushroom tart, fresh fruit, yogurt, bagels,muffins... YEAH!!! Happy Hour was a retrun to the patio with a bottle of wine and some cheese (that I provided for myself... don't want to send expectations too high!). Hotels - even the pricey ones - feel very formulaic; b&b's can be great... or not so much depending on the crowd. The Morgan State House has figured out how to be personal... without being overly so and has a historic home with incredible original detail to share with their guests. (I loved the door knobs!). Only downer... there is no elevator. But Alice lived in to her 90's and her art studio was on the 4th floor... so I am guessing those steps must be good for you!

Elderly well cared for mansion adjacent to Washington Park Comfortable well equipped rooms and plenty of sitting space inside but particularly outside in the well kept yard. The house is the star and is worth staying for that reason alone but take the parking option if it’s available when you book to give access to a secured parking lot behind the house. Otherwise it’s street parking, with a lot of difficult to interpret restrictions!

The perfect B&B for your stay in Albany. The historic house is located downtown in front of beautiful Washington Park. We were greeted warmly by the owner. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. Beautiful garden in the back to relax, have a drink or to eat breakfast.

We stayed here for just one night while passing through Albany. The owner greeted us warmly, invited us to spend time in the main house even though our room was in the comfortable condos a couple doors down, and gave us great tips about what was nearby. He also invited us to get snacks from the kitchen and make ourselves at home. The main house is absolutely beautiful and so tastefully decorated and preserved. The neighborhood is pleasant and within walking distance of many good restaurants, with an excellent park across the street. Our room in the condos was also beautiful and comfortable, with soft, fluffy bedding, a kitchenette, robe, and hot chocolate and popcorn stocked in the room. The next morning we awoke to find our rental car had been towed from the park. The owner had told us we would be fine parking there as it was a weekend, but unbeknownst to all of us there was a fun run going on that Sunday. When the owner found out what happened, he gave us a ride to the tow yard and paid the towing bill! His hospitality and service was exemplary and we are so grateful. Although Albany was just a stopover for us, we loved our time there in this guesthouse and also enjoyed visiting the beautiful statehouse, excellent state museum, and walking in the park across the street. We hope to return.

This beautiful old home, converted into a B&B, was the perfect spot for our overnight stay...the room ambience was great, very comfortable bed and good location. Our room came with a small kitchenette, which would have been perfect for a longer stay. The bathroom was small and the shower was not easy to access, the only negatives. And, for the price and it being a B&B, we expected a far better breakfast than an assortment of muffins and bagels...more fresh fruit than just the banana and a hot option would have been nice.

The MSH is a complex of two very attractive buildings on an exceptionally beautiful block of brownstones in Albany. My fellow traveler and I were greeted warmly by the staff, who graciously oriented us to our accommodation, the ample amenities of the inn and the inside scoop on food and other neighborhood attractions. Our room was in the ‘apartment building’, with it’s lovely paneled lobby and a charm indicative of its age. The vintage feel of the room belies the fact that everything inside works: keys, locks, air conditioner; the bathroom was compact but hit all the most important marks; the furnishings were both handsome and comfortable. It was an easy walk to Lark St. for a wonderful dinner (Savoy) and music (Lark Hall), while we left our vehicle in SMH’s convenient off-street parking. The next morning was highlighted by a lovely continental breakfast featuring fresh and local food, served in the brownstone’s welcoming kitchen; we enjoyed ours in the garden out back. Then the morning staff, without any hesitation, went beyond the call by accommodating my need for a small room with WiFi to attend a zoom meeting scheduled to occur right at checkout time. We walked out the door promising each other that we would return, planning more time to spend there on our next trip. Highly recommended!

The Morgan State House Inn is immaculate and has very warm service. The house portion is both beautiful and comfortable, with a park right across the street. The location is in the most elegant, hip part of the city. I highly recommend it.

Wonderful serene B&B. We enjoyed the suite with a kitchen and sitting area. The suite was beautifully appointed and having a kitchen was great. The breakfast was delicious and all the staff were friendly and helpful. We were happy with the off street parking arrangements which is a bargain at $10/day. Great choice in downtown Albany!

We booked almost every room in the Morgan State House for an upcoming wedding (for the bride, groom and family members). This booking was made months in advance. 18 days before our wedding they called and cancelled every room due to construction that was running late. We had spoken to several members of the Morgan State House over the phone during booking and they had never mentioned that the rooms were under construction or that there would be any chance the rooms would not be available. They were aware that this was for a wedding and in fact we were paying extra for their "wedding package". This is incredibly unprofessional for a business. And on top of it, the staff member who notified us was totally unapologetic and honestly a little rude. I would not recommend booking a room here for any important event

Response from Charles Kuhtic, Owner at Morgan State House
Responded Jun 28, 2021
We absolutely understand the frustration and disappointment of all our guests affected by the delay of our renovation project, and we are very sorry for this inconvenience. The last thing in the world we want is to call a guest and tell them that we are not able to honor their reservation. Unfortunately, it’s almost impossible to anticipate unforeseen issues when renovating a mansion built in the 1800s. The moment we were notified that there would be significant delays; we contacted all guests that were affected to give them time to secure other accommodations. We offered to help relocate every guest. We additionally sent a list of hotels near our location with contact information. We do not have a wedding package and there were no charges to any guests affected.
