“Great place to stay in Albany”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Great service. Friendly staff at the restaurant and at the counter.
On a snowy/ice conditions, it was nice to park the car in hotel's garage. The sleep-number bed was great. The negatives are; refrigerator was noisy and they authorize $50 per night.

Everything was great. I ordered room service and received it in about 15-20 minutes. The breakfast was delicious. The lady who made the omelets was so nice. I went to breakfast on a Saturday morning and the young lady who served me was very helpful and on top of things in order to help me and others in the restaurant area.
The front desk was very friendly and a special shout-out to Tammy at the front desk for going over and beyond for her guests. Thanks so much.

Stayed here on New Years Eve. Content with service of front desk at check in, but why is it necessary to authorize an additional $50 on a credit card for incidentals (for a one-night stay)? $10 and $20 seem to be the industry norm. Not the end of the world, but people may want to be aware of this.

If our stay ended in calendar-year 2012, I would have given 5-stars.

Early in the morning on New Year's Day; we began to see the negatives, such as the dirty microwave and fridge. For the microwave, it looked like a housekeeper sprayed a cleaner once, and made one or two wipes in there and that was it. Similar thing with the fridge. Someone who may just open these items and not look probably doesn't notice, but as I did look, there was dried up spaghetti-sauce in the corners and something that resembled butter. The fridge had a couple hairs on the top rack. Probably don't notice those hairs if I didn't first notice the microwave and take a deeper look, but they were there. Felt safe using them, but they were not fully cleaned. That knocks it down from 5 to 4 stars.

Now, the internet. I had to log in about 5 separate times during the couple hours in which I tried to use it, and I tried both the wired and wireless connections. Called the desk about this, and they did a good job trying to troubleshoot and I was content with the way they responded, but it didn't really fix the problem. Knocked from 4 to 3 stars.

Very friendly staff, good comfy and clean rooms. Breakfast buffet was better than average but was dissapointed that the bar closes so early. Good Hilton standard, useful business hotel. I will certainly look to return next time I'm in the area.

Stayed here for one night when in town for a wedding. It was a very functional hotel; clean, quiet, no frills, reasonable cost. We'd stay here again if passing through the area. Good location, easy to find. Free parking. Decent breakfast in the morning.

My husband and I booked a room for a weekend get away. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Our flight was canceled due to Hurricane Sandy and we had to extend our stay. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were happy and taken care of.

Stayed here for two nights while in Albany on business. Check in was a breeze. Room was very clean and quiet. The hotel itself had a good fitness center. Very convenient to the interstate, the state offices and to SUNY.
