darxhow Thank you for your review! We appreciate the feedback. Good news, Capitalize Albany has acquired the buildings throughout the city with a plan to revitalize the downtown area. Hoping this is in the works come early 2019!

Thanks for the review. Our renovation was 3 million dollars to include all furniture fixtures and equipment. We are not at Wolf Road though, we are on Broadway, about 15 minutes away.

As the title says, location is good (never mind two freeways right outside) and convenient to the downtown. However, the room door was hitting the door-frame -- each time it took some effort to close it and the neighbors surely didn't love the noise. None...More
