Yes, Hampton Inns are usually comfortable, clean, and in good repair. That is all true here, too. But there is an extra level of service and little touches that make this a standout property. For example, the desk and other service staff went out of their way to warmly greet us and engage us in pleasant conversation (not in a...

This is my fourth stay within the past 2 months. Overall I'm very pleased and that's why I keep coming back! The staff are absolutely the best! Everyone is friendly and accommodating. Some go above and beyond, like Matthew, Victoria (the chef), Kathy (the manager) and so many others. Check-in/check-out is fast and easy. They try to fulfill every request....

We were staying at the hotel because, as in the past, we use their conference rooms; it is a convenient and efficient use of time. The Hilton re-do of this hotel is noticeable - lovely, modern, and yet comfortable. The staff were welcoming and helpful - quick to meet our needs/requests. All-in-all, it was an easy stay. Business was accomplished...

Stayed here for one night while traveling. Once again, Hampton Inn pulls off a wonderful stay. Room was immaculate, bed the comfiest ever, and the service above par. The hotel is easy to find off the highway. The staff gave us wonderful recommendations for dinner, which we took. Ate at Black & Blue - great steak and service.

Can this designer come do my house? The rooms are immaculate and the colors they've chosen make the rooms seem huge. The traveler photos of the room above are not accurate. The '90s brown carpet and yellow walls are far gone. The hotel has been renovated, so look at the management photos. Breakfast was dreamy. They actually had healthy options...

The go to place in the Albany area. The hotel was far enough off the interstate that there was no noise. I felt secure as a solo traveler walking around the grounds. The staff went out of the way to make me feel welcoming. I WILL be rebooking at this hotel.

I came here to stay with my daughter while she was doing her New York Bar Exam. I was pleasantly surprised by the room, the beds were amazingly comfortable, the room was clean & so was the bathroom.
