Arrived late and tired and was delighted that valet service was offered. Worth the $16 per day ( no extra in and out charge). Our room was quite large, updated, very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was included. This hotel was also conveniently located near some very fine restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Redemption value is terrific! Another... More

I didn't arrive until after 11pm on a weeknight and had missed valet service. However, there was parking on the street right in front of the hotel where I parked when registering. I asked at the front desk whether the spot would be safe all night, and was assured it would and there was little trouble with break-ins. So I... More

We stayed here on a Friday night using Marriott Rewards Points. It is incredible to think that for only 10,000 points that we could stay right downtown. So happy to find free on street parking overnight on the weekend. Saved the $16 valet fee. The front desk staff are very efficient and friendly. The breakfast ran from 7-10 am on... More

What a great find in downtown Albany. Clean, spacious room with equally nice sized bathroom. Very quiet. Friendly, helpful staff. Many restaurants within walking distance. Very good breakfast with nice variety of choices. Would definitely stay here again!

This hotel closes to major buildings in Albany. You can find street parking in the evening as they do charge 15 for valet parking. Breakfast is nice. Bathroom is big and fancy. Pillows are very firm and comfortable.

This is the second time we stayed here. It's a very nice hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. The picture is of a grossness hairball in the shower and my wife found another long hair wrapped around the soap. I don't want to rate this place too low because it is quite nice. Just please follow up with housekeeping.
