Comfort of bedding. Accommodating staff Looks ready to close. No amenities stated on website are any longer available. Restaurant closed down in January as did the lounge. My son said he felt like we were in an abandoned haunted hotel
Location and comfortable Price lol, they were doing construction at the time
The staff were perhaps the nicest people I have met in hotel hospitality in a long time. Everyone....and I mean everyone (doorman, check in gal, breakfast hostess, check out guy) was happy and helpful. Although there is no restaurant in the hotel, that was not a problem. I was given a "goodie" bag upon arrival with bottled water, Oreo cookies and potato chips. There were also large cookies available and I was told that snacks and desserts would be available later in the evening. The complimentary breakfast was perfect: eggs, sausage, waffle station, whole fruit, fruit salad, cold cereals, yogurts, all kinds of bagels and breads. Also a perfect location for the Capital Rep Theatre.
The room was nice but the bed seemed smaller than a standard king. The breakfast was not very good at all, and swarmed by fruit flies. The hotel is under construction which is fine, but less than ideal.
Good location. Close to restaurants. Friendly staff. The rooms have been updated and are quite comfortable. The hotel room have all been renovated but the lobby area is still under renovation which really isn`t a big deal if you don`t mind dust. The rooms could use grab bars in the shower and an extra night stand on both sides of the bed.
Loved the big bed, huge tub and the fireplace. The location was convenient for all downtown activities including the Times Union Center. It was being updated during our stay but it really wasn't a big deal.
Great spot in albany, only 1/2 mile walk to the palace, plenty of great spots to eat & historic buildings to explore. Room was updated & very clean. Bed was super comfortable & even though hotel fully booked, I didn't hear a thing all night. Staff super friendly, cookies & tea/coffe in lobby & water & snacks given on check in. Some parking out front or convenient valet. I will definitely stay at 74 state anything in albany.
We stayed at the hotel over the 4th of July weekend, and we were given a room on the upper floor facing the capital, so that we could see the fireworks. The hotel has a nice indoor pool, but because the heat was not working well and the water was pretty cold, our kids spent a lot of time playing in the hot tub (which was warm but not hot). The fireworks were fantastic from the hotel, even with a slightly obstructed view. With our youngest one asleep, it was perfect to be able to stay in the hotel with the older one, who could go right to sleep when it was over. We ordered room service twice, and it was a challenge both times to be understood by the person taking the order. One time we were bounced around on the phone and had to give the order to three different people. There are a variety of fees for room service, including an 18% "service charge" that the menu says is not a gratuity but that comes up on the bill as a gratuity, so it was unclear whether we needed to add an additional tip for the server.
Front desk staff was not informative about facilities / hotel stay.
Location was great, nice bar, staff was pleasant. AC was not working well, can't open windows, toilet didn't flush well, not enough luxury for the money spent. I will not go back.
The staff was very friendly and attentive. None
Staff was very informative and showed me various features (breakfast room, PC room, exercise room). Room accomodations were very comfortable - and flat screen tv!
Short walk to the Empire Center, helpful staff, clean - shuttle service available. Loud HVAC - had to turn it off to sleep.
The room was newly renovated. Room had a fridge and microwave. Shower has a wide shower head, which makes for a pleasant shower.
