Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SCHSTeach Good service, sketchy neighborhood
We had a good experience at the Downtown Holiday Inn Express in Albany. The staff was friendly and the service was good. The floor that we stayed on had a very strong cigarette smell to it. The door to our bathroom was off the hinge at the top and would not shut. The coat rod in the closet was not attached. The hotel is right beside the highway which is a good thing for convenience in and out of the hotel, but the traffic made it hard to sleep at night.

This is close to the train station but also close to downtown. Staff was very pleasant and the shuttle was welcomed. I enjoyed my sleep, my room and my breakfast

We arrived late but had no problems getting checked in. We had some business to conduct (printing off a real estate document, signing it and getting it returned asap) and the front desk staff (Rachel!!) was a huge help. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Creme7 Truly impressed with my stay!
Overall the stay was acceptable. The staff was great, the complimentary breakfast was very impressive! I have to admit, it was the best spread I've had for a complimentary meal at a hotel. I still can't get over the freshness of the cinnamon rolls...delicious.
Besides my wifes missing leggings from our room, we had an awesome time at this facility!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fred M Big disappointment
The person checking us in did not check to see if we had gold status or not, or if he did he did not acknowledge it. We did not get a room upgrade, or comment that none were available. When we went back, he realized for the first time our status, and then said no upgrades were available. Hmmm. The toilet was slow to drain, and then got very much slower. We called at 8PM and then several hours later when no one showed up. At the second call we were told we could move to a suite, but given the hour chose not to. The next day we mentioned it at check out and the person indicated nothing had been registered about our service request.
Not at all up to the standards we've grown to expect of the various Holiday Inn brands.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick from Port Perry Great proximity to downtown. Comfortable stay at a reasonable price.
We stayed at the hotel for the McCartney concert an extra day. Staff was great in every way. Not sure when I will be in Albany again, but if so, would return to this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rudwung Great place to go after Paul McCartney concert in Albany, NY
We loved the Holiday Inn Express mainly because of being able to relax and not drive after a great concert that was only minutes away by walking. The front desk staff were great. The Inn was totally filled the night of the concert yet it was very very quiet. We slept in and missed breakfast and left around 11 a.m. The shower was wonderful. I slept very very well. There was some road noise outside but nothing that was problematic. Overall a great place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigToe Great weekend!!!
Conveniently located right off the highway, this place was not only comfortable, it was clean, and all the employees were so helpful. Even the shuttle driver Mike (or was it Mark). He played No Cash Cab and asked trivia questions about the city and gave fun facts about landmarks we passed along the way. I got directions from a lady who was so helpful, I didn't need to turn on my GPS. She was so amazingly helpful and nice that my wife commented on it and she doesn't like ANYBODY! Come to find out it was the GM. Imagine that!!! Breakfast was unbelievable for a free hotel breakfast. A huge variety and everyrhing was fresh. The automatic pancake maker was pretty cool too. All in all, a wonderful experience.
