We arrived in Albany, NY to find a room. We stopped at Holiday express...no rooms available...we then stopped at The Hampton Inn and unfortunately they also had no rooms. However Alexa phoned every hotel in the area to find a room for our group of 4! Over and above in customer service! Thank you

Family gathered here to attend 2016 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in Cooperstown, NY. Beautifully remodeled hotel, friendly staff! Immaculately kept! Every staff member we encountered was above and beyond helpful, "went the second mile". Convenient to freeway.

Our family travels a lot for lacrosse tournaments. This is our second visit to the Hampton Inn Albany in three weeks. The staff is wonderful and breakfast great! Clean rooms, well manicured landscaping. Nice size fitness room. Close to Albany campus. Ate at City Line and Across the Street Pub. Would recommend both. We went to across the street pub...

In the Albany area and needing to be near Thurway and University area, this hotel was in an excellent location. It is also very clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good, however more basic choices everyday would be better, (eggs, meat). Also internet service was not the greatest connection.

Thank you very much for your review. You have given us two things to take a look at and improve upon! We do rotate the hot items offerings daily, so while we do provide scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon, we also offer some changes to the menu such as omelets and bagel toppers. Perhaps at check in we can let...

Went for a tour of University of Albany. The university was 1/4 mile away so the location was perfect. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff at the front desk were helpful and friendly. Would stay here again.

Of the 20-odd Hampton Inns I've stayed in during the past five years, this is the nicest. The location, whlle on a main suburban artery and less than half a mile from a mall with restaurants, is very quiet. It's an L-shaped Hampton with multiple access doors to the parking lot, so you are always close to your car for...

We used to stay here when it was a Holiday Inn Express, as the location was just what we wanted. Years passed and we learned that it was now a Hampton.
