Guest Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 288 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service and zero stress experience I was there for one night, I had to take two classes over a weekend as part of the requirements for my license. Since we were kind of a big group, inconveniences always happen (not by the hotel's staff ). But Lori, manager at front desk, solve everything without hassle or inconvenience for no one other that her! Lori, thank you to you and your team who solve everything, working in a team effort. I am looking forward to see you on my next trip, the weekend of Sept. 26-28 March 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel with Great Service One of the Best Hotel staffs I've ever seen. Everyone is extremely friendly and accommodating March 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Two weeks here felt like being home We had a somewhat unexpected, extended stay in Albany, and we couldn't have found a better place to stay. We had a family get-together in the very comfortable lounge, which is spacious and attractive. Best of all, the staff was so friendly, welcoming, and sympathetic, we couldn't have asked for more. The pool is beautiful, and was thoroughly enjoyed by our grandchildren. I would stay here again, if we find ourselves in Albany in the future. Again, the staff is outstanding, as good as you could find anywhere. March 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clean, comfortable We booked your hotel because it is on a route we will be taking for the next three years, and it is a good middle stop for our trips. The main reason that we picked you is for your indoor pool. We had our grandson with us and he couldn't wait. The water was freezing. Me and my grandson popped in for a second, my wife didn't get in past her foot. It was really something we all looked forward to. The staff, room,and breakfast were all fantastic. Thanks, Doug and Cathy February 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 excellent service, staff, and very clean One of the best hotels in Albany! Great value and a clean, quiet room. I especially love the refrigerator and bottled water free to every guest. February 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great rooms, great service, great prices. Read the title...that says it all. Clean, comfortable rooms. Friendly service. Reasonable prices. February 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic Hotel From check in with Lori at the desk to check out with Donna our stay the HIE was fantastic. Clean rooms and hallways. The pool was a real pleasure to hangout in for a while with the tables and lounge chairs. Breakfast was amazing with eggs pancakes,danish and much much more. I do not know what the deal was with the guy who said there was no parking because the parking surrounded the building like a normal hotel with plenty of spots.Very quite hotel. Nice little store inside hotel for snacks soda toothpaste etc. February 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well worth it! Nice place and quiet. Breakfast was enjoyable and the carpets, paint, etc. were fresh. February 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service I travel for business and always stay here when in Albany. They have a great staff that is always willing to make sure that their guests are taken care of. The managers are always visible which is great and have never had a problem with checking in or out. February 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wind Chill As always, the Staff at the Holiday are professional, kind and considerate. It is always immaculate in my room and the Manager's terrific idea of having hot soup available in - 6 degrees at a "Meet and Greet" with her is not only clever but allows other guests to mingle.- she really cares. January 27, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by People Do make the Difference 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! Thanks! January 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Home away from home! 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! January 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reliable, excellent service As always, very reliable service, excellent responsive staff. We come often to the area, and get the best deal and service when we come here. December 31, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Couldn't have been better Even though they were working Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, staff were cheerful and helpful. They treated us great. Room was very comfortable. Breakfast was very good. Probably our best hotel stay. Thank you. December 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emergency Visit 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. December 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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) December 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! R&S December 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent place to stay! I have stayed here a few times and I am at the point that whenever we are in Albany this will is where we will stay! The rooms are nice and the cost is very affodable.... I am very pleased with this hotel! December 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Always the best 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. December 10, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very clean and fresh By far the best Holiday Express thus far. Exceeded expectations. December 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wish I could have stayed longer... I felt so comfortable during my stay that I would definitely be back! November 28, 2013

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very welcoming, comfortable and immaculate 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. November 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Accomodations 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. November 12, 2013
