The staff are very helpful, the location is right in downtown Albany, it's a fine place for the traveling business person, but gosh darn it there's hardly any place to plug in a lap top or cell phone. The hotel is right downtown, very near the waterfront. The walk up to the Capitol is a bit daunting, but for the healthy it's no big deal. All in all it is a fine place. Offers a good breakfast, just about the same as in all other Holiday Inn Expresses. But the big draw back is that there just aren't any electrical outlets in the rooms. In order to just use my lap top and charge my cell phone over night I had to unplug the coffee maker and table lamp. Other hotels have lamps, gang plugs, and other options which provide convenient plugs for these apparatus, but not here.
