Positive Reviews

Reasonable quality accommodation

Although guests report minor concerns with the rooms and suites at this hotel, they do tend to concede that they offer acceptable levels of comfort and cleanliness. The accommodation is due to undergo a complete renovation program in 2016, so any issues will presumably be addressed in due course. .

Good location near attractions and dining

Guests love the proximity of the Hudson River to the Holiday Inn Express Albany - Downtown, not to mention appreciate being within walking distance of many of the area's attractions. Also of note is the selection of popular dining spots near the hotel. .

Pleasant and helpful staff

The service at the hotel attracts positive feedback, with guests describing the staff as friendly and helpful. The front desk team is happy to help out with directions and local area information. Plus, the shuttle driver is pleasant and ensures airport runs go smoothly. .

Negative Reviews

Some plumbing issues

A fairly significant number of guests mention that the water pressure in the bathrooms is quite poor, so it seems that a great shower might not necessarily be on the cards. Also, there appear to be some issues with slow draining sinks and toilets. .

Some rooms subject to noise

Although many guests describe the hotel as quiet, it does appear that rooms located on the same side as the freeway are subject to some unwanted traffic noise and less than appealing views. It probably goes without question that you should aim to secure one of the rooms on the river side of the property. .

Parking is not guaranteed

Several guests describe the parking availability at the hotel as fairly limited. During busy periods, you should be prepared to find a parking space elsewhere. Unfortunately, this will likely come at additional cost. .
