Convenient to the University, friendly staff overall. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Knowledge about Honors program and perks was lacking. No transportation to and from the airport, but they do have car service they recommend and this service was professional, reliable, and comfortable.

We will certainly stay there the next time we are in Albany. Quality is much improved from Holiday inn express.

This hotel had ease of access; with the use of the room key card, one could enter the hotel from the back, as opposed to creating a bottleneck at the lobby's front door. The room's sliding door doubled as coat closet door and bathroom door, saving space. Coffee was available anytime in lobby.

Great place to crash for a couple nights

Pros: close to airport
I came in after midnight and was exhausted. Close to the airport, super quick check in, and a warm room was the way to get some z's before the next morning. I'd go again if I had to fly out.
