We just returned from a weekend stay at Cannon Suites. We were visiting my son at RPI for Family weekend. By the time we had decided to visit Troy, all the hotels were booked. I was a little worried about booking Cannon Suites because there were very few reviews and they were so mixed. We decided to give it a try anyway.
Cannon Suites has just been taken over and the new management was very attentive and professional. Their office on the second floor was open on weekends. And the apartment, 2 bedroom Suite #405 was just beautiful. The style and furnishings were extremely well thought out and very comfortable. It could have come out of a magazine. There were lots of extra towels in the bedroom closets. We wanted for nothing. It was a pleasure to come back to the room and hang out. It truly was a home away from home. The full size kitchen is great too. They should post more pictures on their website. We had so much room for the same price of a double room at any of the hotels in the area.
The only caution is that the room had it's own water heater. Because we live in an apartment with municipal water, we weren't used to the limit of a water heater. We like our hot water showers, LOL. But we quickly learned how to accomodate each other and had plenty of hot water for all.
The area is very sweet and we found so many great shops and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. Not to mention the views of the Hudson river from our room was terrific. Loporto, an italian restaurant on 4th street was just terrific too. We quickly filled my son's dorm room fridge with leftovers. There's a lovely coffee shop downstairs. Dunkin donuts is down the block. Troy's downtown area is great for exploring.
We will be back to Cannon Suites on our next trip, for sure!!
