Stayed here for a wedding. Hotel seems a little dated. Room was OK. Clean. Nothing special. Location is good. Very close to Troy and shopping centers. I would stay here again if it was my only option.

I travel a lot for my business. Been to all types of hotels. You can expect a Holiday Inn to be the same in different cities or that all Hampton Inn looks identical. What you will find here is a unique hotel... nothing to compare. Great look with a unique charm. Combine that with a friendly and helpful staff, you...

As a frequent traveler, a requirement for a hotel is maintaining basic standards. These standards are essential, cleanliness, comfort, courtesy and cost. The Century House is at the top of the charts on the basics, I can always count on them. The staff is prompt, professional, and accommodating. The property itself exudes an old world charm not found among their...

I stayed at Century House during a quick business trip to Latham and they easily met my expectations for hospitality and comfort. I could have opted to stay at the nearby Holiday Inn Express or Comfort Inn but my colleagues recommended this location and I can see why. Not only does Century House provide lodging, but they also have a...

We spent one night at this hotel after a late flight into Albany airport. Quick to get to from the airport. You cannot see the actual hotel building from the road, you only see the restaurant. But, turn at the restaurant and go around to the back. While this is part of the Choice hotel family, it is refreshingly different...

Passed H'orderves were NEVER passed, but were paid for, never saw half of the appetizers, such as scallops and shrimp. Hamburger bar was a joke. They could have put cardboard out there, it would have been the same. Were told short ribs were better than prime rib...........yeah, ok, that didn't happen either.

My wife and always stay at the Century House hotel in Latham, when we visit family in the Albany-area. Our visits usually also include a family as well, but that is another review. The Century House has one of the nicest breakfasts one will find, and the staff in hotel and breakfast dining room are always pleasant and helpful.
