My girlfriend & I wanted to drive a few hours & stay in a city we'd never been in for a night, for dinner & entertainment. Albany was 3 hours away, & had a comedy show going on that night. The 74 State hotel was less than $90, & located right downtown, a 7 minute walk to Angelo's 677 Prime...

First off, no parking lot or garage. $16 to valet park or drive around the block a dozen times until a parking place opens up. Friendly staff and a cold water at check in. No ice bucket or fridge to keep it cold though. Carpets are stained, furniture is scratched. One tiny window with blinds that don't reach the sill....

The night before a big expo that I was in as an exhibitor, I had driven my truck which was having some issues and needed to be on the convention center floor very early in the morning so I decided with the weather I was better served staying overnight. I chose 74 State that I was delighted I had given...

Plenty of towels, plenty of electrical outlets, free wifi, and good selection of TV programming. The staff is very nice and free breakfast was quite generous. The bathroom was clean; looked like it was recently redone. The window was a 1' x 3' tucked in the corner of the room that looked out on an alley. The room is a...

Stayed on a Saturday night. Had a room also with a very small window, but overall the room was very nice. The free breakfast buffet was good and staff was very nice. Being there on the weekend, parking was readily available on the street.

I stayed at the 74 State hotel for one night on a business trip. The other nearby business hotel was completely sold out for some inexplicable reason. The staff are terrific and the location can't be beat, if you want something walkable to the Capitol. My room, however, was grim. The window (intentional use of singular here) was about 1...
