Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 153 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by taxes Was not told about the added taxes at any time until I got the bill. August 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MGYSGTCARR Good locale - Good stay. Place speaks for itself. Proximity also meet my business requirements which will make next trip easier. August 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Our visit We stayed at this Holiday Inn for the first time. We found it to be clean and convenient. We would consider staying at this property again when we travel to the Capital Region. August 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bath Tub I found the bath tub to be extremely stained It appears the gripping material used stains very easy and can not be cleaned. It gives the appearance of a dirty stained bath tub August 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and wonderful hotel workers I was really impressed by my visit to Holiday Inn Express in Greenbush NY. It was comfy and cozy with wonderful hotel staff especially the ladies who came to clean and stock the room. Loved the breakfast - messy patrons but that was not the hotels fault. Loved the beautiful views. August 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by comfortable, clean room the staff was curtious. breakfast had varied choices. hot tub was welcome! August 19, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Room type identification The room was listed as a suite. In my experience a suite has 2 rooms and a bathroom. In the case it was one large room with a pull out coach. This does not give privacy to the person in the room if someone is using the coach. We had 3 people in the room (a couple and a child). August 14, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great Staff, all helpful I would recommend if it was cleaner. I would be willing to give a 3rd try. I believe if you don't know what's wrong you can't fix. So maybe next time I will like how clean it is and want to come back. Please remember that you staff where great everywhere except for rooms not so clean. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient location Clean quiet room, friendly staff, hotel located close to work. August 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice breakfast and helpful front desk staff. We used our reward points to stay at this hotel as we needed to be in the area for business. We had a very very pleasant interaction with the front desk staff, who were very helpful and nice. The room was nice and the pool/jacuzzi were very nice and well needed on a hot and exhausting summer day. The morning breakfast was very nice, better than most Holiday Inn Expresses, and we were very happy to see that they had BOTH a choice for either bacon or sausage (or both). Overall our experiences at this hotel were very positive. August 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service Checked in late after a round of golf and dinner. Treated extremely well and all questions answered. Breakfast the next morning was great. On my way for another round of golf. August 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by staff and service We had booked many months ago for a wedding party to block a group of rooms for an overnight stay. Unfortunately many of the rooms were not available at the time mentioned for check in. My son, with too young children could not check in until almost 4 pm. This made it very difficult for them to attend a family party at 5pm. I realize staffing may have been an issue, but these reservations were made months ago, and if the hotel was busy, maybe more staff could have been added. August 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Relaxing night and good breakfast Enjoyed a nice, relaxing night. There was a beautiful sunset over the Albany skyline. Breakfast had many choices--hot and cold. All staff we met were friendly and helpful. Would stay again. July 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by “Great Service, Nice Staff, Great place to Relax" Fantastic place! Clean, conveniently located, and, most importantly, safe. Staff: friendly, helpful with any questions and suggestions. Rooms: basic, but clean and comfortable July 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient and Comfortable After overcoming a few obstacles in signing in as there were many guests arriving at the same time for the wedding and another event, things ran very smoothly. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The shuttles ran efficiently back and forth from the hotel to the wedding venue. The Sports Bar graciously stayed open late to accommodate our guests for an after-party. The breakfast from six to ten the next morning was the perfect ending to a beautiful weekend - a variety of dietary choices and a delightful atmosphere to thank our guests for coming and to say our good-byes. July 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay All staff were excellent and responsive, polite and smiling. We had a very comfortable stay and recommend this location to anyone...Also had a fantastic view!!! July 22, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Run Down Room The sole purpose of a hotel is to provide a comfortable, clean, quality room for a good night's sleep. The fixtures were rusty, the bathroom door did not shut completely, the toilet was rusty or dirty, the air conditioner worked sporadically (hot then cold), the mattress was too soft, the pillows were flimsy with warn sheets, the drapes wouldn't close (so we woke up at 5:30 a.m. sun), and the wallpaper was coming off of the wall (bubbling). July 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HANYS Clean, comfortable room. Friendly staff. Convenient for business meeting attended. Great complimentary breakfast. July 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean, comfortable stay. Stayed overnight for business. Staff were wonderful and very helpful. Room and bathroom were very clean. July 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel I stayed here one night for a business meeting. The staff upon arrival were friendly and courteous. The rooms was great. My only suggestion is easier access to an electrical outlet for cell phones. I had the same staff for checking out as well and again, they were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel. July 14, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Smoking or Non-Smoking? Oh! You need towels! I made my reservation for two rooms for two nights a week before I stayed. Somehow I was not offered a choice of smoking or non-smoking rooms on the HI website. I don't smoke, nobody in my party does, but because I didn't specify, we got stuck with two smoking rooms! The hotel was booked completely and could not change our rooms on the first night. As soon as I got off the elevator it was very evident that the whole floor stunk of smoke! Our room wasn't too bad because it was also a handicap accessible room. The other room stunk like mariijuna or a skunk! My son complained and got relocated for the second night. When we got back to our room on the evening of the second night (after 9) upon using the bathroom we discovered only one single hand towel and two wash clothes. No problem...called the front desk and the person said she had some if I came down to the desk. I did, picked up the towels and went back to the room. Guess what? They weren't towels afterall, we got 3 bath mats! Have you ever tried to dry yourself with a bathmat? Unfortunately it was the next morning when I discovered their error. How could the maids make up a room without putting in the towels. Full hotel, broken laundry, not enough towels to go around. We got $20 per night off our room! Big Deal. Good way to treat your Priority Club members! July 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Staff are Excellent and attentive Check in and out really fast. Staff friendly and efficient Rooms are adequate. Hotel is showing its age a little bit in some areas, Lobby, bathrooms. etc. Breakfast was very good and well stocked. July 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay Quick one night stay went great. Very good continental breakfast. Great desk people. Will diffidently stay again. July 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this location! I have been at this location many times and I am never disappointed. Erin at the front desk welcomed me as an IHG Rewards member and offered me a welcome bag or 300 points. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. Being able to control the air conditioner in the room came in handy on such a hot and humid night. I am sure I will return. July 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good -- clean, neat, quiet, gets the job done! Polite, prompt and courteous front desk staff. Clean, quiet room. Ceiling needed some minor repair. It was a nice hotel to stay at, a good overnight rest, going to and coming from a long drive to and from a visit with wonderful family! July 7, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Attentive staff, comfortable bed Comfortable bed, great service. Problems with plumbing for which we were refunded a part of our payment. July 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A very pleasurable stay Great location, nice amenities, very nice skyline view of downtown Albany, very close to shops and restaurants. Easy to get in and out of parking lot. July 6, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Needs Improvement Hotel is always out of towels for pool and room. Beds are old. Way too much chlorine in the pool. Halls smell like smoke. View is not what they say. Breakfast was nice. July 3, 2014
