I was soooooo impressed with this hotel. It was such a great 2 days stay that I wish I could’ve stayed longer just to be in the room! The bed and the pillows were sooo comfortable! The staff was amazingly pleasant! We had a hiccup with the toilet clogging but they switched our rooms not once but 4 times until we were confortable in the one we were in! I will definitely stay here again! Loved it!

Breakfast was excellent, aftn snacks n ice water nice touch. No microwave was total bummer, I shouldnt have to request one from front desk. Some questionable characters constantly hanging around side of building but they were clearly on hotel grounds, uncomfortable for me as a single female.

The only thing lacking was the breakfast. It was supposed to go until 10 but most things were gone and not restocked at 9:40.

Excellent

Pros: clean, convenient
Cons: Room a little outdated, but clean and comfortable. Looks like they are renovating and expanding.
Location: This is right in the middle of the historic downtown neighborhood which is really cute and architecturally pleasing. Lots of restaurants and shops.
We stayed one night here in town for a conference. The hotel was very conveniently located in the historic downtown area, walkable to restaurants and shops. Staff was very nice and the room was clean. Nice extras like 24 hour free coffee, juices and teas. We will definitely stay again if we find ourselves in Troy.
