The room was clean and comfortable, there is a computer in the lobby where I did some personal online errands, and I parked right outside the door on State St for free until 8 am. Coffee and tea was available when I arrived, and breakfast was decent too. The Paul Mitchell products started my day off right. I will stay again!

Probably usually nice...UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Pros: i liked the valet staff, front desk staff, and cleaning staff. i liked that starbucks is across the street. i liked the shower, bathroom, & pillows.
Cons: lower your prices and advertise that you're under construction before people make their reservations. it's a pretty important thing to know.
Location: starbucks, subway, lots of bars, lots of restaurants,the times union event center, riverwalk, etc. can't ask for a more central location in DT albany
i was hoping for a nice quiet pleasant experience, instead i stayed at a construction zone. the room was nice enough and the staff were nice enough, so whatever. this review is more for the hotel owner...you should shut your hotel down during renovations. it's a horrible eye soar and unpleasant experience for a guest to pay money under the facade of gorgeous online photos and good reviews only to show up and have to literally step over a guy to get to the elevator because he was laying floor-tiles down in the lobby. close up for a few days or weeks, get the work done, and open back up. i'm displeased w/ paying over $100 for a room at a hotel whose condition would reflect that of a hotel that should be $45. it was loud, workers walking quickly everywhere, just not the vibe i'm into when i'm trying to relax at my hotel. again, the staff were really great, and the room itself was decent enough. so there's that.
