“Not a safe area..................”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

This hotel was recommended by Orbitz which are affiliated with Amtrak. I was told by Orbitz it was a 3.5 out of 5. My husband was picking me up at the train station, but got caught in traffice in New York. The amtrak attendant did not really know where this hotel was, so I started up the long hill on State Street. The hotel is in a terrible area, and has no curb appeal at all. I was prepaid through Orbitz. When the desk person came out, he was surly looking with red eyes. I was by myself and he asked for payment, I told him it was prepaid. He made some phone call to someone and then said ok. I fortunately had the confirmation printout with me otherwise I may have been hitting the streets again. I asked to see a room first. The rooms were spotless very clean and had been redone completely. I was the only person staying at this hotel. There was supposed to be a continental breakfast, there was some coffee thats it. I wanted to call my husband and could not get a line out of the room, I went to front desk twice and due to language barrier never did get a line out. My husband got there and we left first thing the next morning. Would not advise for woman on her own or even with another woman. Schenectady not a very appealing town police everywhere so you know somethings up.

Room Tip: Ask to see a room before you book.
