I stayed here for two weeks (not including the weekends) as I did research in the NY State Library & Archives - a short walk away with most of it underground for chilly days. The staff is super professional, the rooms are clean and well designed with a good desk area, fridge, microwave, small coffee maker, the internet works well,...

VERY, VERY comfortable night's sleep in our room's king size bed. Complementary hot and cold breakfast served us well in the morning. Good size room. No complaints, good one night stay! Parked our car in front, nearby (but I think the hotel probably has a lot as well).

This hotel was great because it was modern on the inside and right downtown. We were able to walk to everything we needed to and it was right next to Sixty State Street Venue which we were there to go to a wedding. Very convenient 15 min trip to the airport and lots of restaurants in walking distance. We also...

I was looking forward to staying at the Fairfield Inn in Downtown Albany because of the great reviews I read on Trip Advisor, and when I called a few hours before check in and spoke to the very friendly young man on the phone, he welcomed me and assured me that early check in was not a problem.

This hotel exceeded our expectations. Last year we stayed in the Hilton across the street which was AWFUL! When we came back to Albany, we really wanted to stay in downtown Albany, however we did not want to go back to the Hilton. The staff here was very friendly, the rooms were gorgeous, views were awesome, and my favorite part...

Stayed for two nights for a college visit. The room was nice, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was OK. Lots of staff hanging around talking to each other while the coffee was empty and the fruit needed to be replenished. This happened both mornings. At one point I could not get bread or a napkin because staff was leaning on the...
