This small renovated inn is just what I was looking for in Schenectady. It is conveniently located on the main street and the room was spacious and well-appointed. I would definitely recommend it. My only comment (and the reason for 4 stars instead of 5) is that we happened to be staying during a show at Proctor's. We left for the morning and when we returned mid-day, there was absolutely no parking left for hotel patrons. Even those spots designated for guests were take by theater goers.

Business associates booked this for me. Amazingly nice accommodations. Will definitely book again when in the area. Convenient to shopping, dining and entertainment. Parking was a breeze. The hotel staff, Melody and Maria, were excellent. I normally only stay in Marriott’s or Hilton’s. This was very nice and I plan to return.

I reached out to the Parker to inquire on rates and availability and was greeted upon arrival by the same person I had spoken too. Darsan was very accommodating, professional and kind. As a matter of fact, the entire staff that we met were as well. The lobby/lounge area was “fun” with quirky couches and chairs that draw you in to try them out. The detailed staircase and iron wrought elevator were straight from a bygone era that made me feel very nostalgic and peaceful. The small plaque in the elevator listing past patrons was very interesting and when I learned that I was walking the halls and even possibly visiting a room once occupied by Barbara Eden... i felt almost honored and had strong inclinations of crossing my arms and blinking my eyes (fans only will understand). The room was clean, the rain shower was heaven, bed and pillows were comfy with clean and crisp sheets. Breakfast was just right and the hot chocolate in the coffee machine (available 24 hours) was a yummy indulgence! Will we stay again? You bet!!! And you can also bet I’ll try to find out which room was Barbara Edens!!! Thank you Parker Inn... thank you Darsan.

I travel for work every week and tried several hotels and Airbnb's in the area, including Albany. My search is over now, I am a regular here. Clean and spacious rooms, great location, excellent staff, many classic touches, stores, theatre, etc. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Albany or Schenectady and surrounding areas. Great boutique hotel.
