Great place to bring a pet

Posted Sep 12, 2017
Pros: Very close to the interstate so easy to find. Staff were very personable. Great breakfast.
Cons: The water pressure for the shower could have been better.
The room was very spacious, large enough to put our dog crate in and still feel incredibly roomy. They have a nice pet walk so that we didn't have to dodge vehicles. The beds were comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with many options.

Nice place to stay close to the airport

Posted Sep 3, 2017
Pros: I liked the general quiet atmosphere with nice landscaping and always available hot tea and coffee. The breakfast was amazin!
Cons: The bed was too soft for my liking but that's only a personal response.
Lovely facility with old fashioned comfort and attentive staff plus wonderful restaurant. It was a peaceful place to stay and end my visit to the Albany area.

Great airport option

Posted Aug 24, 2017
A great choice for the night before and early flight. Love that it is pet friendly and has a beautiful walking trail. Breakfast was good, room was clean, no complaints.

Very quaint place to stay!

Posted Aug 4, 2017
Loved it here! The carpet as you go in could stand to be replaced. Other than that it was perfect!

A real gem near Albany Int'l Airport.

Posted Jul 15, 2017
Pros: Everything, especially the quiet location and close-at-hand dining.
Cons: Quieter room air conditioning and more flexible availability of the free airport shuttle service, which now has limited hours.
Location: About 5 miles from Albany airport, near enough to get places but far enough away from the downtown to ensure a quiet, peaceful stay.
The Century House was our second choice for a hotel near the Albany airport on a recent combination business and pleasure trip to upstate NY and the Catskills region. We are quite happy that our first choice didn't work out - if we ever have reason to revisit the area, Century House will be our first pick! The staff was wonderful (especially Andrea, who checked us in and made us feel quite welcome), friendly and helpful, room was clean and spacious and the hotel's off-the-highway location made for a quiet and restful stay. There's a bar, restaurant, small exercise room, a pool and a quaint nature trail for short hikes without leaving the grounds. The colonial decor wasn't overdone (thank you, whoever made the decision to keep it minimalist rather than overstuffed and chintzy) and the attached Century House restaurant served good food and reasonable prices and the free breakfast was one of the better we've experienced in travels around the country. The icing on the cake? Our room was half the price of the hotel we initially had selected. The Century House is a real bargain.

Priced well for what it was.

Posted Jul 14, 2017
Stayed here 25 years ago and this was a blast from the past. Asked the front desk for a forgotten comb and another guest asked for a do not disturb sign......none to be had. Dinner was very good.

Good price for a quick stay

Posted Jul 7, 2017
First visit to Troy/Albany. No elevator to second floor, for those who absolutely need one. There was a water stain on the roof. Plenty of towels. Good breakfast with a variety of food. Good location around several hotels. Overall, a pleasant one night stay.

Great getaway

Posted Jul 7, 2017
From the moment I got there till I checked out, I felt like I was on vacation ( and I live about 10 minutes away ) Beds were super comfy, pool was very inviting, took a little walk on the wilderness trail. My children had such a wonderful time that when we checked out they asked" when can we come back" I want to thank the whole staff for making our mini vacation so great!

Excellent beds!

Posted Jun 26, 2017
Pros: Nice grounds, off the busy road so absolutely no noise.
The room was spacious and clean, the bathroom was spacious and clean. The beds were fantastic. Firm but with soft toppings and nice sheets, the 2 twin beds came with 4 pillows each! Not just the usual plain pillows but 2 FEATHER Pillows each bed! I was in heaven!
