This hotel is decent on the comfort, but better than average on the facilities.
Room was spacious and comfortable, bathroom a little better than most. Free wireless internet in the room worked well. A clock that I could see at night without being annoyingly bright was a nice touch.
There is a pool and hot tub, but I didn't use either.
The business center has free computers and free printing, much appreciated. You can also print from your laptop in your room.
This hotel is right across from the airport but hard to find if you have an older GPS because of street extensions (not the hotel's fault). If you use the actual address, an older GPS will route you are the "back way" (about 2-3 miles longer) because it is unaware that the road now goes through.
A very nice part was the 24-hour convenience center, which sells a small but useful variety of food and drink, including alcohol. Prices are convenience store, not "hotel" prices, which is nice. I arrived after the restaurant closed and picked up a sandwich and beer for about $12.
The small restaurant/bar stops serving food around 9-10pm, and there is nothing at all within walking distance, but a few restaurants within 1-2 miles. Breakfast was fine, they do a limited cooked-to-order breakfast with eggs, pancackes, etc.
One night, I treated our group to a round of beer and some snacks from the convenience center, and we sat by the fireplace drinking and chatting. The cost was about $25 for 5-6 of us, very reasonable for a hotel.
This is a good place to stay if you're flying in/out of Albany, especially with a later arrival or early departure. Otherwise, you can find more convenient locations. No issues with the hotel itself though.
