We were originally scheduled for a weekend in Atlantic City, New Jersey, but Hurricane Sandy
forced us to change our plans. A friend of ours recommended the Albany, New York area and staying at the Desmond Hotel. We were very impressed with this hotel! Our room was a two-level Duplex Suite with a spiral staircase leading to a loft. The suite was super-clean and well appointed with many amenities, including a wet-bar. All of the staff, from the front desk to the restaurants, were exceptionally accommodating. The hotel has a beautiful indoor courtyard with a lovely fountain and koi pond. Best of all, was our experience at the Desmond's Scrimshaw Restaurant, which provided a very romantic setting with a live piano player. The menu was reasonably priced and the wait service rivaled that of many five-star restaurants. At the end of our dinner our server presented my wife with a red rose. Awesome! We will definitively return to this hotel.
