This Hampton Inn is located right next door to Proctor's Theater which was very convenient for us. We parked our car in their secured parking lot and walked to dinner and the show. Upon walking into the hotel lobby, there was a nice fireplace and lots of comfortable chairs all over the place. We stayed on the highest floor, the 5th. It was one of the quietest hotels that I have ever stayed in. I never heard people in the halls, doors slamming or any traffic at all. The rooms were clean and up-to-date.We didn't try the complimentary morning breakfast nor did we use the pool and hot tub this time around. There was a nice small bar very close to the hotel, The Back Stage, which I also would highly recommend. This will definitely be a hotel we will go to again if we ever go see another show at Proctor's.

Stayed here with my family over Thanksgiving for a family reunion. We had 2 suites which were huge, spotless and well appointed. Having the extra space gave everyone the privacy they needed to feel comfortable. The beds were comfy and the flat screen TVs were great. There were 2 in each suite (so we did not have to watch Sponge Bob all day!) Bathroom was clean and nice with plenty of towels and hot water. Kids made use of table in kitchen area for school work/coloring. Only complaint about the room would be that my 21 yr old son said the pull out was torture to sleep on, but then again, all pullouts are! My seven yr old did not notice that his pullout was uncomfortable, but hey, he's only seven. Breakfast in the lobby was typical, nothing special, but we appreciated having a free meal each morning and the woman who was supervising the buffet was very kind and accommodating. The hotel is located in the main part of downtown Schenectady, which has recently gotten a face lift. The facades of the shops and restaurants are charming, but for the entire 4 days we were there, the streets were empty (except for some homeless folks). We did do a bit of shopping on Jay street and had some crepes in a little place on the corner (yum!). Overall, this place worked out perfectly for us and we would most certainly stay here again.

Visited Union College with my daughter last weekend. It was clean; staff was friendly and nice. There was a mixup with our reservation and it was corrected immediately. Safe and secure parking. It was perfect for our needs. I would absolutely stay here again.

This hotel was located near the center of "town" where there was plenty to do. A big plus. The service was good (though for the 3rd hotel running, we were given 2 queen's instead of a king), and the breakfast buffet was excellent (and free).
The gym left a lot to be desired (2 treadmills, 2 ellipticals, 1 bike, some dumbbells, no machines), and running on the treadmill felt like concrete. I honestly think running outside would have been better on my knees.
The room was a good size, and the bathroom was very nice. The only complaint here is that the beds were very "squishy" so we didn't sleep that well.
Free, "private" parking was good too.

If you won't use the gym, and you like a squishy bed, the other parts of this hotel were fantastic, and would be perfect.

Our extended family stayed in Schenectady for a wedding. The rooms were great and so was the free expanded breakfast. There was a business center with a free PC. Our grandchildren enjoyed the pool. It was nice to have free, secure parking too.

I stayed at the Hampton Inn for one of my best friend's weddings in July. I was the first one to the hotel and allowed to check in at around 12, which was nice. I had an end room on the 5th floor which was a small upgrade from the normal room. The room was very spacious and clean. There was an LCD tv with an actual cable box, which provided a lot more channels than usual. Also there was free internet which is always important. The whole hotel seemed updated from the lobby to the hallways. However the best part of this hotel was the location. There is a restaurant called Bombers right across the street which was nice, bars in front of and behind the hotel, and a nice street called Jay St. with a bunch of little shops on it within walking distance. The location was important because as you'll see a couple wrong turns in Schenectady and you're in a bad area, which some of the other area hotels are located in. Anyway I would definitely recommend this hotel, it has everything you need and is in a nice area.

We had a two night stay at this hotel while we were in town for a wedding. The rooms were spotless and the check in staff were very helpful. We stayed on the second floor right above the front entrance. I was concerned that it might get loud but we had no problems with noise at all. We ate a late lunch at a pub directly behind the Hampton, I don't recall the name but you can't miss it. Great food and great service.
If we were ever in Schenectady again I would stay at this hotel.
