If you're going to an event at Proctor's, especially in the Winter, why not stay in a Hotel in the same building, with internal connections? Our room had a complete mini-kitchen, and a sleeper sofa, so a family with children could easily maximize their room-use. The complementary breakfast had only make-your-own waffles as a hot option, but there were fresh...

The rooms were updated, spacious and contained stoves, refrigerators and microwaves. We were disappointed that there was no coffee maker in the room, but you are able to access the lounge with an espresso machine 24/7. Located conveniently on State Street next door to the Proctor Theatre and across the street from several restaurants and a pedestrian shopping area. Front...

We stayed at The Parker Inn & Suites over the weekend; just a one-night stay to see a show at Proctors Theatre. It was a great choice for us. Not only is the hotel adjoining the theatre (preventing the need to carry a coat) but it’s also centrally located near plenty of downtown shops, bars and restaurants – as well...

We had the suite, so right when you walk in you see the kitchen which had a chunk of glass broken off the stove top. The shower had both the rain shower and normal shower heads, but the normal shower head barely came out as a dribble. Plus there was a huge moldy spot above the shower and the wall...

A unique hotel retaining its individual charm. Right next to the fascinating Proctors Theatre and a short walk from the Historic District. Don't overlook Schenectady, its a remarkable place. The hotel room was clean and spacious, great old fashioned and well maintained bathroom.

I booked a room here literally on the fly when a freak snowstorm happened today. I was here from NYC on business, and had every intention to drive home this afternoon but the weather made it unsafe.

Do yourself a favor and stay at the Hampton Inn a block away, as the Parker Inn is simply horrible in almost every aspect. The rooms are not only outdated but so warn that it has the feel of short stay motel. The floors creak, the furniture is beyond grungy. Just stay away at any cost; I sure wish I...

By chance found this jewel, very reasonable rates, perfect location right next door to the famous Proctor theater. Full of charm stayed in an efficiency style room very pleased. Central to everything downtown no need to deal with parking(provided by hotel). Great experience.

I've stayed at the Parker Inn several years ago and enjoyed it. So this time I booked the Presidential Suite to pamper my self a bit. What a huge disappointment. First of all, the elevator was in dire need of a paint job and refreshing. This should have been my first clue. Upon entering the room, I was in awe...

A great place to stay in Schenectady, fantastic room, right down town with tons of places to eat and drink. All within walking distance. Very historic area but with up dated rooms. I highly recommend the Parker Inn & Suites. Next to the Proctor building, lots of Broadway shows and happenings year round. Ward
