This hotel is made charming by its old style, large and comfortable rooms, and very sweet staff. Clearly, it is under-going renovations, and we do hope they will maintain its style and not transform it into another soul-less hotel chain under the new management. A much better value than the Hilton or any other hotel close by. We'd definitely stay...

In the centre of Albany, next door to the Capitol, next door to area with pubs and restaurants. Very nice spacious room. We got a deal for 79 usd plus tax. Only minus point. The breakfast room, a temporary situation, is a bit of a boring thing in a boring room. And free safe parking in front of the hotel.

This was my second stay at 74 State and another great experience. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Rooms have been renovated as they transition to. Fairfield Inn. Elevator interior seemed a little beat up but I'm guessing they've gotten a bit of abuse with new furnishing, etc. Breakfast is temporarily located in a meeting room but still generous. Will stay...

We picked 74 State due to price and proximity to the Times Union Arena. It was even closer than we thought and the atmosphere is what you would see in a 5 star hotel. The front desk personnel are always smiling and willing to assist you; they greet you when you are coming in or leaving. The rooms are not...

I stayed at the 74 State because it was close to the Times Union Center, I will go back because it was wonderful. Old World, clean, quite and comfortable with a very good complimentary breakfast and the greatest staff I have encountered in a long time If you need glitz go up the street to the Hilton.

We came into town for the Eric Church concert and we booked this hotel because of its proximity to the Times Union Center. It was great, a stones throw away and we were also able to walk to this great place for dinner called City Beer Hall! Hotel is clean, close to everything and the staff goes above & beyond!...
