Needs major updating. Carpet was a mess. Needs a restaurant. Evening front desk personnel was really great.

On ouf way back home...

Posted Aug 12, 2014
On a very quiet sunday night, after a long shopping day at Woodbury commons, a clean, friendly, relaxed hotel close to the highway, far from the noise. Good price, superb restaurant (Jack's, an institution in Albany) close to the hotel, would defenitively come back!

First room we were in had a bad odor but the staff was great and made a change to our satisfaction. We would stay again- the hotel is right downtown and within walking distance to most downtown venues.

Nice location, poor breakfast, ill-equipped room.

Posted Aug 3, 2014
Pros: The bed and location. Friendly staff.
Cons: Tell people they can request a fridge upon check in. Say you have continental breakfast or just say breakfast. It wasn't a buffet like one hopes for.
Location: You can take a nice walk to Lark street from there. Also, there are bars and restaurants close by.
This hotel was just okay for me. The bed was really soft and comfortable (huge plus) but everything else...just not that great. The breakfast wasn't good. I was expecting a hot and cold buffet breakfast like advertised, but it was basically a continental typical breakfast with some instant scrambled eggs and sausages. I chose this place over Morgan State House (which states having a continental breakfast) because I thought I was going to get a really nice breakfast here, but was very disappointed. Plus there is no fridge or mini bar in the room. Upon check out, I told them it would be nice if they added a mini fridge to the room, I was told I could've requested a fridge. What? Who requests a fridge? It should've just been in the room.

Comfort and convenience in downtown Albany

Posted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: Spacious rooms, helpful staff, great location..
Cons: A mini-fridge in the room would be nice.
Location: Provided that you don't mind walking uphill, 74 State is very well located for exploring Albany, especially the State Capitol and Empire State Plaza.

Middle of everything

Posted Jun 22, 2014
This hotel is great! I can't wait to stay again. It's in the middle of everything. Huge comfortable beds and a very large bathroom to match. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful with everything. Even breakfast was good.

Nice hotel in downtown Albany. Staff is very good

Posted Jun 15, 2014
Pros: Rooms were comfortable, air conditioning good, bath room clean. The staff was friendly and helpful.
Cons: Breakfast. Pretty dreadful and served in a dreary room. The person in charge spoke to no one and looked as if she would not welcome any questions.
Location: Plenty of restaurants. It is downtown.
Enjoyed hotel for its location and comfortable bed, clean bathroom. The complimentary breakfast was dreadful. Even the coffee was bad. Also, some of the other guests were poorly kept and not what I would call up market.

Very clean! Extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and professional staff! Such a convenient location in Albany! Can't rave enough about this jewel in lodging at the incline of Capital Hill on State Street in the heart of this historic Capital City! A June 2014
