Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by enjoyinglife13 No parking
We couldn't find parking and they told us we would have to park down the street. This should be made clear to people when they make a reservation! They finally let us PAY to park on site but that is awful, since we paid to stay there too. Who in the world would build a hotel and then have no parking, do they think people WALK to a hotel??? We will never stay here again.

Your facility was impeccable as I have grown to expect them to be. Your staff, however, was just exceptionally warm, caring and supportive which was perfect after a three hour drive from a very cold NYC. In the a.m., everyone was just very nurturing!

The whole staff really makes you fee like family when you are away from home. Cathy the manager is always nice to me and all the guess at the hotel giving them a first class experience! From the guest room, fitness room, lobby and breakfast this is a first class operation. Richard made sure that my rate and room where correct. I have been staying here for over 18 years and it has been a wonder ride with this place! I Love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by soccerfan16 Holiday Inn Express our home away from home
Every time we need to stay over in Albany, we stay at the Holiday Inn Express on Western Avenue. The staff, from the room cleaning ladies to the front desk to the restaurant employees are beyond compare. We always look forward to our next stay at Holiday Inn Express.

I had to make an emergency visit to Albany last Friday. The staff was very willing to make the reservation for me that afternoon and accommodate my daughter and me. We have stayed here several times while visiting our daughter at the University. I highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cedarpointtrio The only place to stay when in Albany
Check in - fast, staff - helpful and very friendly, location - excellent if you have family in the nearby colleges, easy off and on for the interstates, shopping nearby, great morning breakfast, price was very reasonable for what they offered (have paid a lot more other places getting a whole lot less)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 21Sue Love our stay here each time we visit Albany
We've stayed at this Holiday Inn Express three times in the past year, owing to the overall positive experience we've had. Rooms are clean and up-to-date; staff is friendly and helpful; fitness room and pool area are well cared for and clean; complimentary breakfast is well-stocked and there is a variety of choices. We would, hands down, recommend this hotel!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hunter531 Clean and comfortable
The room was ready when we checked in. It was clean and comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was excellent. It had a lot of items to choose from. We would certainly come back for another stay and would recommend this hotel.

We didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel this time because we were on a mission, however, as always everything was top notch. When traveling to or through Albany we most always stay here.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JRMM Room request
When I made my reservation, I specifically requested a room on the first floor near the lobby. I was assured that this could be done. When I arrived I repeated my request. They gave me a room on the fourth floor, the top floor. It was described as "right next to the elevator". It was actually the last room at the very end of the hall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AdkBandit Great H.I.Express
We have stayed here both reserved and spur of the moment stays and have had excellent service from all staff. The nicest is the NOON check-out, you don't have that rushed feeling when you just want to relax. The complimentary breakfast is consistently good and the food service people very nice. The pool is a nice area also.

Awesome property and phenomenal staff. Hotel is immaculate, rooms are comfortable and the staff is one of the best I've ever experienced. We stay here all the time when in Albany to see our daughter at The College of Saint Rose. Highly recommended.

I stay in this hotel everytime I come to Albany. I always find it to be comfortable, well maintained, extremely comfortable bedding and pillows and staff who go out of their way to make you feel at home. Can just about anytime about a problem and maintenance is knocking at your door a few minutes later. Wouldn't stay anyplace else in Albany.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fred16 One of the best HI Express experiences
We often stay at HI Express, but this one really impressed us. The hotel, on the busy Western Ave, was readily available off I-87. Plenty of restaurants, gasoline, drugstores and shopping mall nearby.
On arrival we were immediately struck by the attractive site and landscaping, and once inside, we could feel that care had gone into the fresh, colorful and imaginative interior. Our check-in was efficient and the room met our usual high expectations. We had to leave early the next day, before the 6am breakfast was "ready", but the desk staff encouraged us to help ourselves to coffee and whatever else was ready. He could not have been more pleasant. We travel through Albany often and will undoubtedly return to this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pentel Friendly Staff
Recently, we went on a road trip of several states and one Canadian province. This hotel was far and away the best one we stayed in and that includes other hotels in the Holiday Inn chain. The staff were friendly, and helpful and cheerfully volunteered information to make our stay more enjoyable. The room was excellent with all the amenities you could ask for. The only slight drawback was the breakfast selection. It was not bad by any means, but it could use a little more variety in terms of hot breakfast items. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in or passing through the Albany area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VMPJ suprisingly good! Great breakfast!
I had to make this reservation last minute on a holiday weekend, unfortunately to go to a very stressful and sad family funeral. The staff was so nice and helpful, the room clean and quiet, and I loved the breakfast - what a life saver! The pancake machine was so cool and brought a much needed smile. Thanks again and although I hope I never have to come to Albany again for such a thing, I would stay here again! Thanks!

I was referred here from another HI Express that was booked for a local conference. They called this property and made me a reservation at same conference price. The staff was very friendly and helpful on check-in. Room was standard HI, but very clean and didn't smell. Excellent! I'll be looking to return for a week in November and a week in December.
