“Great location - exceptional staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We were visiting our daughter who attends a nearby university. Despite our late arrival (a little past midnight), we were greeted warmly, given great information regarding locale and breakfast and sent off to our room. Beds were very comfy (they are truly queen sized and not doubles), bathroom exeptionally clean - housekeeping is to be commended. We stayed two nights and were happy with the free wifi which let us get caught up on some work. Very convenient location - walked to a local restaurant recommended by the front desk staff (they really are terrific!) for lunch one day and were very pleased. And if you stay on a weekend, you can park on the street for free!

We arrived around midnight and was greeted by the front desk agent who was very nice. The hotel was a quick trip from the airport and is in an okay location. The only issue we had was the noise from the construction from across the street was very loud!

All in all was a nice hotel and nice staff.

For those of you visiting Albany I would recommend the Hampton Inn Downtown. The rooms were spacious with flat screen TVs and a large channel selection and the lobby gives you a "days of yesteryear" ambience.The hotel has a good hot breakfast and there are two restaurants, one a bistro type right on premises. The staff was courteous. I wish parking was free but he $16 you have to pay is not a budget buster and is secure. The downtown location makes it convenient to take in Albany's historic sites and being the capitol on New York would be a good choice if you are on government business. All in all, I was pleased with my stay.

Our family stayed overnight for a recent event at the Egg. Our room was very clean and ready upon arrival. I was happy to see that my extra requests were also completely filled upon entering the room. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the lobby set up that allowed for multi-use of complimentary breakfast in the morning and relaxation in the evening with local free newspapers. I would have given this hotel 5 stars, except for two things....the $12.50 valet parking which didn't seem necessary at all. The back lot is definitely accessible and easy enough to self-park. And, generally most Hampton Inns have complimentary hot water for tea and cocoa as well as hot coffee available most hours of the day/night..which I would have loved to enjoy after returning from the performance at the Egg late that night as well as in the afternoon when we first arrived at the hotel. On a personal level, I would not recommend walking from this hotel to the Egg. Although the distance was about a 10-15 minute walk, the area around the Egg was somewhat less desirable at night.

Dear RoamWorld (Saco),

Thank you for the review! We are so glad that you found all of your requests were completed upon check in, exceeding our guest’s expectations is what we strive for! We love our lobby and are glad that you found it comfortable and convenient to enjoy your breakfast in the morning and relax in the evening. We are very sorry if there was any confusion about our complimentary coffee station, we do offer one 24/7, however it is moved to a different counter in our lobby during the evening hours. We certainly hope you enjoyed your show at the Egg and hope to see you back again soon!

We chose this as hotel due to the ideal location near Times Union Center. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Friendly front desk staff, check-in was seamless. Nice choices for breakfast offered. Walking distance to many different places in downtown Albany.
