“Don't miss this Albany gem”

Empire State Plaza Convention Center
Reviewed 27 November 2016

Do not miss this architectural gem of a Plaza where all the government buildings of New York State are located. The complex is approximately 100 acres and contains 10 beautiful buildings which reflect in the large pool at the center of the Plaza. It's a must stop for taking great pictures with the pool and the Egg building.

Albany is the capital of New York State. It is a mixture of old and new buildings. The plaza is a mix of old and new buildings. Quite peaceful just to walk around. The "egg" is totally made of concrete.

This location was the perfect setting for an Irish Dancing Competition. The meeting rooms are very large, the Main room is huge. The vast expanse of space and seating made it easy for families to relax while waiting during the day. The building is very elegant with the highly polished floors, well marked venue rooms, and spacious washroom facilities. We were not able to travel up to visit "The Egg"' as it is closed outside of performances, but the convention space sits directly under "The Egg".

Attended a dance competition for my youngest daughter. Could not find access nor directions to the parking garage - drove around in circles for 15 minutes before finally parking on the street. Then we couldn't find a door to get into it - another 15 minutes wandering around. Once inside there were no signs nor anyone available to indicate where our event was located in this HUGE venue.
As a former event planner, I would NEVER recommend this venue to anyone!
Only positive thing was the plaza level that was good for taking pictures.
