This Hotel was clean-- staff was great-- rooms comfortable- coffee good!! I would recommend this to anyone needing to stay in the Albany area-- close to Capital Hill and Universities. This Hotel appears to have been recently renovated. Parking is close to Hotel entrance.

This is an updated hotel, very modern, conveniently located and easy to find, with a nice pool and workout room. The room was clean and quiet, and the complimentary breakfast included many options, and was available for several hours, which was nice. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

No TV reception in my room and the AC was loose and rattled all night. When I reported this to the front desk she just said OK and left it at that. The Managers party on Tues was a nice touch. First time I has a bad experience at this hotel.
