Was given a room that was not clean. Went into bathroom in morning and dirty towels hanging on door and dirty tissues all over sink. When I asked to speak to GM I was told they were not aware when he comes in or what his hours are. Stay some place else!!!!!

I stay here for no other reason but proximity to my office when traveling to the area. So I will give it high ranks on location (though there's not much around downtown Albany). I booked my hotel on Priceline.com. The room was all paid for with my company credit card prior to my arrival. The booking email provided an option...

We stayed at Albany's Fairfield Inn & Suites to attend a concert at the nearby Egg. My first impression wasn't so good as I couldn't find the hotel - it is discreetly located on State Street with no front portico or parking area. I had to call the hotel to ask what to do with my car -- they said...

The quiet room was appreciated. You hardly knew that there were people in neighboring rooms. When we checked in we asked for a late checkout, as we had a 12:00 ceremony at the Egg. We wanted to return to our room and quickly change out of our dress clothes for the ride home. Andrew said there would be no problem...

I stayed here for two weeks (not including the weekends) as I did research in the NY State Library & Archives - a short walk away with most of it underground for chilly days. The staff is super professional, the rooms are clean and well designed with a good desk area, fridge, microwave, small coffee maker, the internet works well,...

VERY, VERY comfortable night's sleep in our room's king size bed. Complementary hot and cold breakfast served us well in the morning. Good size room. No complaints, good one night stay! Parked our car in front, nearby (but I think the hotel probably has a lot as well).

This hotel was great because it was modern on the inside and right downtown. We were able to walk to everything we needed to and it was right next to Sixty State Street Venue which we were there to go to a wedding. Very convenient 15 min trip to the airport and lots of restaurants in walking distance. We also...
