Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 216 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Tempurature control We complained several times that the temperature in the room was extremely hot. A serviceman came once. Said he fixed it and left. He did not and we called several times afterwards but nothing was done. We could get much sleep both nights March 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kiwanis Mid Wnter Conference Had a wonderful time. Food was great, service was excellent. All staff very polite and very helpful. February 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Staff was very courteous and friendly I arrived several hours before the check-in time, and checked with the front desk. I was told that they had some rooms available and I was checked in early. I didn't expect to get in so early. Some hotels are not that flexible. I needed some information on a business in the area, and received very good directions on how to get there. I was there for a conference (500+ people on Saturday). All the wait staff were very courteous and friendly. Even when serving dinner to that many people, they still had time to say excuse me and to respond when some of us said thanks. February 26, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service, bad temperature control Unfortunately the air conditioner in my room was terrible. i was there for a convention and many people in my group complained about the same thing. The room was really unbearable to sleep in. I had a room on the 1st floor and there was no outside window to even open to get a cool breeze. I lowered the air conditioner unit down as far as 65 degrees and still it made no progress in cooling the room off. The rest of the room quality was fine, clean and spacious. The rest of the hotel was fine also, 205 on Wolf had nice atmosphere . I attended a gala reception in for ballroom and the food and service were good. February 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great food and facility! Spent three days there for large conference. Service was good except trying to feed 200 plus folks on their own Saturday morning in the restaurant. My organization should have made better arrangements...not blaming the hotel. Great place to stay. Many rooms to accomodate breakout sessions and all of the events required of a large group. Staff always smiling, thanking you for staying with them and very accomodating. I would not hesitate to return and look forward to my next stay. Love the Towers! February 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Place to Stay We spent two nights at the Holiday Inn on Wolf Rd in Albany. The hotel is a comfortable place to stay. The room was spotless and comfortable. The atrium and pool deck is a great place to mingle and relax with other guests. Plenty of parking. The only problem was the food in the restaurant and the during the dinner we attended was average at best. Better to eat out on the town. Still, overall a nice place to stay. February 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by a relaxing day and evening with family. i took my family for a couple of days to the turf in albany for some nice quality / relaxing time last week during school vaca. and we had just that. everything at the hotel was great,room,food and pool. great atmosphere and clean. the service was also great. only one bad thing happened at the lounge my favorite college basketball team got beat. the orangeman. i highly recomand this hotel. February 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Air Crews get shuttle first! Called the hotel around 2 PM on 2/22/14 for a shuttle back to the hotel to pick up the car after a week. The girl at the desk said: You'll have to wait, we have air crew to transport first and then you'll get a ride. Just go outside and wait..they'll be there soon. When we went out, there was a hotel van just picking up crew to go BACK to the hotel. The driver told us he'd be right back......OK, no problem. Well, we waited for another half hour and NO shuttle. I again called the hotel..The same girl asked me: "are you air crew of guests?" I said guests. She said, "I told him, but he's got to get the air crew taken care of." About 15 min's later, the shuttle showed up with ONE air crew that went to the terminal and we were then transported back. The driver was very nice, but we got the idea from him, that the hotel caters to air crew BEFORE guests, because of obvious reasons. From now on, my company will consider another hotel that cares about it's guests. That girl should NOT have said what she did! NOT SMART!! February 24, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor example for hotel let me start by saying for the past 5 years I've been spending half of the year (minimum) in hotels. This was the worst hotel I've stayed in. Staff was top notch, food was excellent and well priced. Hotel is very warn and needs much updating, rooms are very loud, you can hear everything outside like there is no walls. During snowfall the plow service this hotel uses plowed in half the cars like they were playing a prank on a friend. Room service couldn't seem to get food prices right or same, one meal was $12 and change, next time I ordered same it was $18 and change, shouldve been in the middle both times, but after mentioning something it was 12 and change they brought back $6 the second time. With the snow, again the plow service did not clean sidewalks or access to sidewalks. By time my 7 day stay was over there was 2" thick of ice outside the door. I will never stay here again. February 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by February stay... a very happy stay I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The 2 ladies who checked me in, were very accommodating and very friendly. The housekeeping also did excellent job with regards to replenishing my towels and keeping my room clean. I am also grateful to the drivers of the van who were willing and always ready to drive me around town February 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A decent airport hotel Clean and nice large facility with 2 restaurants! The rooms are clean, but in need up an update. The place was quiet, and I got some quality sleep time. The restaurant 205 was quite decent - a martini bar with modern ambience. Staff was courteous and professional. February 11, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wheres the Coffee? Don't expect complimentary coffee in the lobby in the morning as is the Normal in buiseness class hotels. They have a little store area where they sell coffee. The hotel lobby area and comomn areas are really nice and modern etc... the room I had was kind of dated but clean and comfortable. February 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Business Stay I stayed overnight for a business trip. The room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. The staff was friendly, good service all around, I would recommend this location again. February 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great room Only thing that need is some updates like water changing when taking shower. January 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by front desk staff and maintance staff I stay at this property offten, the front desk staff (Jim and Lexie) always great me with a smile and know me by name. In the past I have forgotten things in my room upon check out. The staff has found and held them for me until my next visit. Danny, from the maint staff is always helpful weather it be a door that won't open or a plumbing problem and always with a smile. He's just great. Room service cheesburger is top notch January 28, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by poor value for the price I have been to this hotel every January for last 16 yrs. for business and the state of the mechanical/plumbing systems, room décor, carpet and furniture is the same as it was many, many years ago. This place needs some serious investment to modernize if they are going to keep our business. our group occupies a lot of rooms and many of the group have been increasingly unhappy with this place. It's getting run down and there is no evidence of any improvements. On a brighter note: Staff is great and very polite/helpful. January 27, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hotel is very tired I stayed in a courtyard room. It was dirty, the toilet didn't flush well, the faucets dripped, and the room was dirty (yes I said that twice). The roof leaked in the courtyard over our exhibit booth. The fitness room had poor equipment and didn't have proper supplies to clean the machines after use. The staff did a fine job but I will definitely stay in another hotel for this conference next year. Other than the bar, this hotel needs a total redo. January 26, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by no recognition for platinum member should have more benefits to platinum members, such as a free breakfast. January 17, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Coin toss I've stayed at this hotel many times. My son loves the indoor pool, indoor area to run around, and the arcade. This place really is a great place to get away from snow and cold, if you have kids. With that said, my most recent stay was made less enjoyable due to the room's environmental controls. It was 78 degrees (F) in the room, and the only way I got it down to 76, was to leave the door open. I had to turn the thermostat to off, to keep more hot air from coming in. II am sure they have corrected the problem by now, but that is why I titles this 'Coin Toss' January 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location- Price i stayed at this holiday in albany ny and it was great.!! Iwas near all the attractions as well as a great restaurant ( Dinner was fantasic -and a wonderful pool n hot tub.. The room was clean and very comfortable!!! . I was with my granddaughter and i cant wait till bring her again. Thanks for a great time.!!!! January 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Big Room and great service We were moved into the king suite and it was huge with a lot of space to put shopping bags. A large table to eat at and a sofa with two chairs. The sofa bed was not comfortable but a cot was brought in at no charge. The King bed was comfortable. Only strange thing was there was only one tiny bathroom which didn't make sense with such a huge room. There was so much space to have a much bigger bathroom. the other inconvenience was that the pool closes at 9:00 p.m which was much too early for us. January 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service The front desk people, as well as the bellman who drove us to dinner, were hospitable, accommodating and and very helpful. January 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Visiting Colleges Great location! Near airport, universities and malls. Front desk is very friendly. Thank you for a pleasant stay. December 26, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Filthy rooms Linens weren't changed from the last guests, second room the bed was so saggy I felt like I was sleeping in a hole. Nasty room, room service platters left in the hall at night by other guests were still there in the morning. December 10, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Samll and dark room The room was tiny and dark with a small window opening into a very noisy hallway en route to an elevator. If this is how they treat their priority club platinum members I wonder how they treat others. December 9, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible I stayed for business here numerous times almost for a month total. I am platinum member and was not given a room in the much quieter tower or upgraded to a suite however I was placed first in a smoking room which smelled terrible and then a room overlooking the indoor pool after I was told there were no other rooms. The noise at the pool did not bother me however on Friday night they had some sort of party reception where the music has been blaring loud since 9pm. I called to ask how long it would last since I had to work next morning early and be up at 430am. I was told 11pm which is beyond absurd and totally unacceptable. It literally was a concert going on outside my room. As a platinum member that has spent 23 of past 30 days at this hotel I will NEVER give them my business again and will discourage my numerous business associates that come to town to avoid this hotel as well. I would rather stay at a hotel that respects all guest that are paying money to stay rather than placing priority to a once a year reception party. Management should be ashamed...advise to others find another hotel where you can get good night rest December 6, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and good service Beds were comfortable and room was clean but carpeting in room bothered my allergies. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. We arrived on a Thursday evening and noticed soiled room service trays on the floor throughout the hallways and when we checked out two days later, the same trays were still in the hallways and had not been picked up. December 4, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by In need of renovation This place has not been updated in over 20 years and it shows. Stayed in a room as advertised by the indoor pool. The room was worn from the many conventions but overall it was clean. The beds were small but fairly comfortable. The woman who checked me in was nice but when leaving the guy at the desk acted like I was wasting his time asking for a printout. In fact he didn't even give me one and told me they would email it. Guess what, I never got one so I'll have to verify the charge to my card. December 2, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Average Directions to use the wall thermostat which didn't work. Toilet that ran on after flushing. Typical hotel room that needs attention by management. December 2, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by One of Our Worst Stays Ever We chose this property to be close to the Albany Airport as we had an early flight the next morning. We were given a room around the perimeter of the indoor pool. The room smelled of chlorine. There were a number of young people making noise around the pool at 9:45 PM. I called the Front Desk, and was told that quiet time began at 10:00. At 10:30 I went to the front desk because the noise hadn't stopped. It was after 11:00 before it finally quieted down. We had to leave the hotel at 3:00 AM. Needless to say, it was a very short night. November 27, 2013
