Unexpectedly diverted by bad weather to Albany, New York on a general aviation cross country flight. The Desmond was recommended by airport operations. Absolutely perfect recommendation. Hotel van arrived five minutes after request. Hotel staff could not have been more helpful or courteous. Entire hotel exquisitly designed and decorated in the 18th century style down to the most subtle details while providing the most modern conveniences.DInner and breakfast at the hotel tavern were superbly prepared, provided by outstanding servers in an atmosphere of 18th century simplicity and elegance. Business center was up to date and modern and provided fast and convenient access to the internet and flight planning tools. Absolutely zero wait for hotel van back to airport operations. I will return as soon as I can with family and highly recommend The Desmond to anyone who appreciates the elegant simplicity of an 18th century atmosphere with all the modern conveniences.
