I was booked into this hotel for two nights by personnel at the University of Albany. It was very convenient to the uptown campus, and although someone picked me up both days, I could have easily walked to the amazing complex that constitutes the university's "Academic Podium." Under a huge overhanging canopy roof are multiple three-story buildings housing the various...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 January 2017

The hotel is newly renovated and it's very modern yet inviting. There are many places to sit and chat with others in public without feeling "exposed". The breakfast offering is very good with plenty of hot items (eggs, meats, pancakes) and healthy option (fruits, oatmeal, yogurt). The Tuesday evening reception was wonderful, with chicken, veggie, qunioa, soup, and wine. There...

The front desk staff is exceptional! Very warm, very friendly, super helpful and professional! The hotel is well-kept, very clean, very comfortable - just a terrific experience! (And the breakfast is great, too!) I would definitely recommend this Hampton Inn to family and friends visiting the area.

Almost three years of coming to this area and every time a different hotel. We just couldnt seem to get the one that was overall right for us. Until now. This place is fantastic. Great staff, clean and comfortable rooms. The beds were new and the room had black out shades. The bathroom came with a sliding door that didnt...

Upon entering my room the room smelled like dirty gym clothes. I hated to complain, but I did only to be moved to a room with bedding that looked like a bug had been killed on it... yuck. The rooms were not cleaned to the standard of the Hilton name. However, the front desk staff and the food preparation staff...

What a surprise to open our hotel room door to see a beautifully decorated room and bathroom. The rug, the tile, the draperies and room darkening shade, and the wonderfully comfortable bed and bed linens...all nice. Everything so clean and fresh. We came to Albany for incoming freshman sessions and this may be our hotel for the next four years...

I always stay here when I have a volleyball tournament in the area. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. Breakfast is consistently good with the standard Hampton offerings. This is a very quiet location as it is set back from the road.

This was a great place to stay. Very comfortable room. The bed was great and the bathroom was very nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The fresh made cookies were delicious. Although I did not partake, I will definitely come back for the Tuesday manager reception.

Excellent location and staff. Our second home in Albany. We usually go there to visit our son studying at the university there. It is in a central location and close to many shopping places. Highly recommend it to families with kids. The pool was great, and this time the temperature was right, as it used to be on the colder...
