The hotel was ok and the breakfasts made mornings really easy.

I tried the elipticals in the gym and they didn't seem to be calibrated properly so i gave up on the gym.

The really big deal for me is I don't feel safe in the neighborhood - not even parking my car at night time. This made going out for dinner impossible by myself (I ended up getting food I could bring to my room).

I won't go back - not so much because of the hotel, but because i don't feel safe in the neighborhood.

We were in Schenectady to attend a play at the Proctor Theater. This hotel was conveniently located right down the street. The hotel staff on duty both for check in and check out (different people) were welcoming and extremely attentive, they would all recieve and A+ for service. The rooms were clean and quiet and the bed was very comfy. We walked away knowing that when we returned to attend another play we would definetely stay in this hotel.

We had booked here, found without difficulty, comfortable twin bedded room. The entrance looked very welcoming and had an attractive layout (even if some of the display books were designed as safes!). Got an excellent recommendation for a meal at the Aperitivo Bistro.

Happy with the choice of breakfast food but disappointed that it was nothing but plastic plates and cutlery

10/21 sunday night stay, had a great room with a nice large shower... I like the option of having the larger walk in shower opposed to the "tub/shower" design. Check in was great, front desk was fast, efficient and friendly. Nice quiet night, typical breakfast, with good service by the hostess. Front desk manager Leah Milewski does a great job and has the customers comfort and satisfaction as a core value. Its refeshing to deal with professionals. As a multi year Hilton Diamond, I highly recomend this property and will be back myself in a few weeks.

Visiting Union College, adequate for my wife, son and I to stay and have a place to rest our heads. Clean. Would return. Breakfast was included but we only had the coffee. Jay Street is definitely a place to see.

Very nice hotel. New, clean rooms & comfortable. Since we didn't know the area we asked the two girls at the front desk for locations of local bar/grills with in walking distance. The only place they knew of was the burrito place across the street. Which was maybe a step up if even from Chipotle. Really girls??? The next morning after check out we took a right hand turn out of the hotel on Clinton. Right behind the hotel was a bar/grill called Backstage Bar & Grill. How could they not know that was there???? Can you say Clueless???? The good news is the aweson Thai restaurant we found on our own right down the street.

We were very impressed by the friendliness, efficiency and helpfulness of the front desk staff both on check in and check out. We also stayed at a Hilton and a Hilton Garden Inn but we were most impressed with the Hampton Inn Schenectady. The rooms are beautifully decorated and ecerything is so clean it seems new.
