Stayed one night after a wedding. Most of the guests stayed at the Hampton next door. We decided to skip the generic hotel and stay here. (Plus it was cheaper) Huge room facing the street big bathroom with dual shower. Full size fridge and kitchenette. The bed was great and, although I was a bit hesitant being next to the...

What a gem! A beautifully renovated, utterly comfortable historic (1908) hotel, smack in the middle of Schenectady. Excellent in every way! Parking is free, in a lot behind the hotel -- really not a problem to find or to walk to. The staff are great. And there's an intimate feeling to the place -- only four rooms, I think, on...

Excellent hotel, close to Amtrak station, downtown, could not ask for anything better. Immaculate room, bathroom and kitchen. Even the amenities smell good. It is a good thing to have breakfast included in the price. Staff was courteous and friendly. Will definitely stay there next time.

We enjoyed having an 8th floor view of fireworks from surrounding communities on Independence Day. The room was spotless and the bathroom very pretty. Comfy bed! The downstairs coffee bar was fantastic! We loved staying around the old buildings and next door to Proctors. One issue is the coupons (attached to the Groupon) for eateries didn't work during our stay....

Love this place. So comfortable, well laid out with a perfect bathroom. The staff will take great care of you esp Ruth at the desk. The elevator will put a smile on your face-it's old school. Not as fond of the parking area as they would like you to be. Went to see the lion king one Wednesday eve. Nice...

The night I arrived after much drama (and could have been dangerous) in attempting to take buses from the Albany airport, i was greeted by a warm and friendly front desk staff, my lady Ruth. She was very knowledgeable with hotel operation and about the area. The location was great as I was there for my son's performance with the...

“I had everything i wanted overlooking State Street. Walking distance to Johnnys Restaurant across the street. Amazing!! Then out the ack parking lot to a great, friendly bar & restaurant " Backstage Bar" , great food and friendly people. The plays at Proctors Theater directly below your room Amazing.
