Don’t stay in room 222 (fitness center with weights slamming down at 6 AM in the morning). Also, even after repeatedly notifying the manager about ice at the entrance, they did not spread sand / salt.

Dear Navigate41237524550, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your current stay with us. We are sorry that you had a less than peaceful sleep due to your location within the hotel and we wish that we were able to resolve that issue for you during your stay. Our number one priority is the safety and security of our guests and I apologize that you did not find us up to par. The moment after you and I spoke about the outside conditions of the hotel I notified both my General Manager and Chief Engineer. Our Chief Engineer immediately went and purchased sand as you requested and laid down a great deal at the front entrance. Again, I apologize, as it appears that we did not resolve the issue to your standard and we hope that we are given a chance to regain your trust in the future. Sincerely, Chelsie MacDonald Assistant General Manager 518-438-0001 Chelsie.macdonald@hilton.com

Dear jjms22, As this is the second time this review has been posted and I did not hear a response the first time, I apologize again that you feel that you had a bad experience. I think that possibly your review was meant for another property. We take incidents as those you have suggested very seriously and I have no knowledge of this occurring. Please contact me as soon as possible so that we may resolve this matter. Thank you, Chelsie MacDonald Assistant General Manager 518-438-0001 Chelsie.macdonald@hilton.com

Where are the designated smoking areas?
Hi! Thank you for the question. The smoking pavilion is in our back yard, across the parking lot next to our outdoor patio. The weather is warming up and should be a very pleasant space very soon!
