Mineola, New York
Reviewed 6 June 2015

Older hotels in remodeling transition will have pluses and minuses. The elevators are very antiquated, and one was not working. So you needed a lot of patience. The rooms, however, appear to be part of the completed portion of the upgrade. Spacious with amenities one expects of a high-end hotel: mid-sized flat-screen TV, free Internet, bright and decent-sized bathroom. Other...

An overnight stay brought us to the NY State Capital and this lovely hotel was our home for a night. We chose a room with a fireplace and were pleased with how well-appointed the room was: from a desk that separated so a part on wheels became a dining or work table fireside, to a footstool that was cleverly tucked...

A nice walk to the Times Union Center. No need to get in your car and drive home after a concert or show. This hotel is the perfect place to stay instead! Rooms were large, clean and comfortable. We had dinner at there dinning room and it was easy and pretty good.

Lovely staff! Very welcoming and warm people! In one week in the US, that is in that hotel that we had the best experience thanks to hotel staff.

We stayed in Albany for two nights. I recommend this hotel because of the location, room and the staff. Nick, Cassie and Sheldon were just wonderful, always willing to help. The room was updated and very nice. If we ever go to Albany again we would definitely stay there.

We had a great stay in this hotel. At the moment they are renovating the hotel. The rooms we got are ready. Everything was new, so nice. The staff at the desk was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was still under construction so the breakfast was now in a conference room. It was a very simple breakfast but for...

The hotel is in the middle of an extensive renovation. While I stayed on a renovated floor, it was obvious they hadn't completely finished as the windows were absolutely filthy. Some of the things in the room didn't make sense. They had a pod coffee maker in a place impossible to plug in. There were NO towel bars in the...
