We were in Albany for the day, for a family Baptism, and unexpectedly had to stay overnight. We showed up at this hotel with no reservations and nothing but the dressy clothing on our backs. The front desk was wonderful. Got a comfortable room at a great price (although we would have preferred a little firmer bed), and the front desk clerk gave us all the complimentary toiletries we needed (toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, combs, razor & shaving cream). They couldn't have been nicer or more concerned, asking us if everything was OK each time we passed the desk. The breakfast had good variety (fresh, fruit, yogurt, cheese omelets, sausage patties, pancakes, bagels, muffins, cinnamon buns, etc.) and "doggie bags" if you wanted to take breakfast on the run. Room and bathroom were very clean, with lots of towels, microwave, refrigerator and in-room safe. Would definitely stay there again on our next "unexpected overnight stay" in Albany. By the way, other relatives who stayed at another (unnamed), big-name suite-hotel nearby, for more money, and were "upgraded" to a 2-room suite, were very disappointed in their stay. Guess they too will be staying at the Holiday Inn Express Albany-Western on their next trip to Albany!
