We stayed there on a Sunday night. As this is a boutique type hotel it was not busy. As many have written, it is under construction. I mean it is really under construction on the first 2 floors. There are 2 elevators but one is totally shut down and used to hold construction items. The other one lacks flooring..no carpet...

This place is a disaster. It is currently undergoing a massive renovation and about 95% of public areas are an active, and dirty, construction zone. The property will convert to a Fairfield Inn and Suites in October 2015, but until then try to avoid. While the rooms appear to have already been renovated, the (new?) air conditioning units are spotty...

Great clean rooms, reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Great location for a stroll in to Albany. Breakfast left a little to be desired but was ok. I enjoyed the stay overall and would visit again.

On my way to visit my folks, we decided to stop in Albany to split up the trip. I selected this hotel because the reviews seem good! But when we arrived, we were disappointed. The hotel is undergoing many renovations, only 1 elevator works and the free breakfast was not enjoyable (we heard pounded of hammers the entire time). The...

I decided to spend a little more money than I planned to stay at 74 State on my recent trip to Albany, as it looked good in the pics and had some nice reviews. This was a sad, depressing hotel. Forget the pix, imagine vending machines directly in front of you at check in. Construction debris everywhere. A windowless breakfast...

We stayed here mostly because it is close to the NY state capitol, and we wanted to tour the capitol. It was a great location for doing that, but also for enjoying downtown Albany, with its restaurants and events. The hotel is being renovated, but that didn't interfere with our enjoyment of staying here. The only criticism, and this really...

Mineola, New York
Reviewed 6 June 2015

Older hotels in remodeling transition will have pluses and minuses. The elevators are very antiquated, and one was not working. So you needed a lot of patience. The rooms, however, appear to be part of the completed portion of the upgrade. Spacious with amenities one expects of a high-end hotel: mid-sized flat-screen TV, free Internet, bright and decent-sized bathroom. Other...

An overnight stay brought us to the NY State Capital and this lovely hotel was our home for a night.
