The room was very clean and the service was wonderful. The staff were friendly and helpful. There is an indoor pool and Jacuzzi which we used. The Jacuzzi was excellent but the pool is very small. Luckily we were the only ones in the pool. It would have been crowded with three more people. That being said, everything else about...

Friendly staff and management. Clean rooms and great location. Highly recommended! Easy access to SUNY Albany sports venues. Great shopping and restaurants located close by. Take a walk around the UAlbany circle!

Easy on, easy off. The thruway! This property is extremely nice and close to absolutely everything that you would want. We stayed in the most expensive room available (suite) as that was all they had at the time and it was of superior quality, very comfortable and we will definitely request it again this year. Wonderful experience.

I stayed for one night on a business trip, and was generally pleased. A few highlights: They have very nice and attentive service. The breakfast area is unique as they have pods with TVs, so you can eat and watch TV in semi-privacy. Nice selection of breakfast items too. At evening time, you can relax in the same area with...

The room was clean and so was the pool. We booked a room that was called a suite. We have 2 kids and like to have a door between us. Where we were told would be a door there was a slightly narrowed opening.

Arrived Saturday afternoon, check in was quick and the check in associate, Gabriel, was pleasant, professional, and well-dressed. I contacted him several times from my room for various things and he was very accommodating on the phone also. Location: So this hotel is on a main road that has lots of other hotels on it. The navigating is somewhat confusing,...

Pro:This hotel is close to restaurants and malls Cons: Beds are too soft; pool is tiny and very cool The room was fine but smelled a bit musty. It was ok for a 2-night stay but I would probably not stay here again.

Had a nice room, very spacious and clean. Was only there briefly, overnight so I did not get to try most of the amenities. Used the conference rooms for my meetings. They gave us tasty food for lunch. The restaurant (cafe) was suffice for a quick breakfast.

I want to say thank you to Gabriel at front desk and Brian at the Bistro. Brian made the very best flatbread and special salad I've had the pleasure of eating. Please ask for him when you visit. Gabriel gave one of the warmest welcomes I've had with check ins. So anyone checking in or eating in the Bistro these...

If you are visiting the SUNY Albany campus, and have a rental car, this hotel is really perfect as it is across from the school and the accommodations are consistent with a three star hotel. There is no room service, but the staff is exceptional, friendly and professional. However, if you are a tourist or a business traveler this is...
