This hotel offers just enough of everything to make it a place to return to! The rooms have (always) been specious and clean. The desk personal are extremely helpful ( through internet fiascos!), and the breakfast buffet is quite adequate but very well stocked and managed . Plasticware and plates are conveniently displayed for guest use - great when you...

We spent two nights here while attending a nearby geocaching event in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. There was no a non-smoking room available when we checked in, but the desk clerk worked the room plans so we could get what we reserved. No microwave or fridge in the room, which was a down-check. WiFi was reasonably fast, room amenities were good otherwise,...

I stay here occasionally when in Albany. This past time, I was able to get the top corner room overlooking the skyline. Awesome view, and since it is a corner room, quieter and it had more space. There are restaurants newarby and a Walmart and Target down the street. It is very convenient.

Stayed here a couple of days. Really super staff, from front desk to the person that services the breakfast buffet. Very friendly and efficient. Room are a good size but a little tired. The entire hotel could use some updating. Breakfast buffet was excellent.

This is a small HIE, there are no suites available....don't expect an upgrade...but they will give you 500 point OR a bag of goodies with ONE water bottle (regardless of number of ppl). It runs by a private company and from the look of it. It looks like a fancy motel...that was converted to a HIE! The rooms are very...

Dear Bewell4you, We also wish we had had more rooms, maybe a 4th floor! As an IHG Rewards Member you deserve spoiling when every possible!

We only stayed here one night on our way to Niagara Falls but I wish it could have been longer. High standard room and service. Breakfast room, food and ambiance just great. Cleanliness exceptional. Free WiFi. Staff were great. Also a quiet location with great views over Albany.

Large, comfortable room with separate sitting area. Bedding was comfortable, although pillows need to be replaced. The breakfast was typical of this type of hotel, and was kept clean and well stocked. Bonus...nice view of Albany.
