Stayed here for Paul McCartney concert at Times Union, which was fantastic! This is my first time staying at a Holiday Inn Express. The location is close (approx 6 minute walk) to Times Union, but the abandoned building next door is quite a turn off. My biggest gripe was that I booked this room 2 months prior, nervous there wouldn't be a room available with Sir Paul in town. Since I booked early, I did not expect to get a room across from the elevator and a view of the freeway. The room was clean, a little small, toilet seat wobbly but I was surprised that at the price I paid there was no refrigerator or microwave in the room! That was surprising! With that said advantages: 6 min walk to times union, close to downtown attractions in general, breakfast was adequate, there is a pool, room was clean. Disadvantages: close to blight, 90 parking spaces 135 rooms (does that make sense?), wobbly seat, no refrigerator, no micro.
