I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, the gym was adequately equipped and the staff were very helpful and friendly. I would recommend to anyone visiting AMC. The room was clean; there was a microwave and refridgerator and the bed was comfy.

The Hilton Garden Inn was lovely to walk into, and the staff was terrific. Everyone was smiling, and helpful. The room was spacious and clean. We felt secure with the key cards necessary to travel upstairs in the elevator especially because the homeless pan handlers in the parking lot were scary, but who can control that? Our girls hockey team had a lovely time, and the rooms were so cozy, they didn't even have to be chased to their rooms for curfew! Loved the Hilton Experience!

I stayed here the night prior to an interview at Albany Medical College. It was the perfect place to stay. It is literally right next to the college and medical center and as other reviewers have mentioned there's a bridge which connects you. This place is priced only marginally higher than the bargain chains in the area but offered a lot more. The building seems either rather new or recently refurbished. The rooms were very clean. The bathroom was spotless. The shower was remarkably clean--I think they actually glazed over the grout but that's another discussion. Everyone was very helpful, even the room cleaning staff. They were also not sticklers--they allowed me to stay in the parking lot after checkout. Internet was fast, free and seemed to work everywhere.

Breakfast is not free but I think this is for the better. It was $10 and included cooked to order eggs and a generous buffet with fresh fruit and pastries and lots of other good stuff. It's generally my experience that free breakfasts always leave something to be desired, while for $10 this was as good of a breakfast as I would have got at a diner or breakfast joint.

A few complaints (very, very minor, and mostly due to my own preferences)

-One of those places where music was playing almost everywhere. In the elevators. In some common areas. In the breakfast room. It's fine I guess, and the music wasnt offensive in any way but I dont think it adds that much and sometimes a little bit of quiet is preferable.

-Parking was somewhat scarce. I think people abuse the lot. I never was unable to get a spot but I did see people circling around on a few occasions. I also saw people come and park in the lot and then leave on foot. They check parking permits but appear to do so only after a certain hour and it seems that some people may have become aware of this. They may also have been restaurant patrons. Unsure.

Overall for the $$ this was a great value. Could not be more convenient for staying near AMC.

If you have any business in Albany Medical Center like I did, don't ever think twice of going into this hotel. I stayed here twice and was happy at both times. Specially on my second stay when it was extremely cold and subfreezing. There is a walkway to the hospital that you would not need even to take your coat with you from the hotel. There is Bank of America within 2 blocks, Starbucks at the ground floor that opens really early, there a decent bar with great food, too. It is one block away from Panera, two blocks from CVS, a Chinese restaurant, and lots of restaurants that deliver as well as shuttle service from resto to Amtrak and airport. It is also very close by to the downtown, Times Union Square, etc. I love this hotel.

Very clean.... convenient to Panera...Starbucks is downstairs as well as the recovery room. Great if you need access to downtown. Across the street from Albany Medical Center and close to colleges. Very secure as you need a room card to get to the room floors. There is a shuttle for the airport, but it doesn't start until 730am.

Superb, efficient and friendly front desk staff. Excellent breakfast to order by very friendly & courteous wait & cooking staff. Rooms are clean, accommodating and well worth the price charged. Location is excellent, especially if you're engage in business with either Albany Medical Center or St. Peter's Hospital.
