BEST SERVICE & LESS EXPENSIVE!
We had been to Lake Placid and we were staying in Albany for only one night. My husband & I had a reservation at the Holiday Inn Express, but decided to seek other accommodations b/c their shuttle service would not begin until 8am. (We also had stayed at the Holiday Inn Express when we arrived to the area, it was pricey & the bed was very uncomfortable)!
We needed to stay close to the airport & leave at 7am to catch our flight from the Albany airport. I found The Clarion Hotel at The Century House online & we were not disappointed! The rate was approx $50 less than the Holiday Inn Express, and the room was much nicer...complete w/ comfy beds, coffee service, flat screen tv, microwave & refrigerator. We arrived around 6pm...just in time for complimentary drinks & hors d'oeuvres with the hotel manager, which was a nice. We then dined at The Century House restaurant at the hotel...very cozy & relaxing..the fire was lit...it felt like home. Much nicer than your typical hotel restaurant. I had the lobster roll & arugula salad, my husband had the chilled soup of the day & the filet. Everything was excellent! Another nice touch...for every entree purchased they donate a meal to the local food bank. Since we were hotel guests, they donated 2 meals for every entree. I really liked that! We settled in for the night, borrowing a corkscrew from the front desk so we could enjoy a bottle of wine in the room. The bed was very comfortable; nicer linens. The next morning, we went downstairs to grab a bite...I was expecting the typical continental breakfast. Again, we were IMPRESSED! The menu included eggs, bacon, hash browns, bagels & muffins, cereal, coffee, juices, & milk. It was great!
We had confirmed the shuttle service & departure time w/ the front desk before going to breakfast (service begins at 7am). When we went to the front desk to leave, the clerk said the shuttle driver was running late. They had called a taxi & he waiting for us outside, AND they had paid for the taxi! NOW THAT'S SERVICE! If we return to the area, we would definitely stay at The Clarion at the Century House again! They know how to treat guests!!!
