We now consider the Holiday Inn Express Western Ave to be our go-to hotel when visiting family in Albany. This was our second visit to the hotel, and the experience was FAR better than our first. The service is first-rate: friendly, supportive and immediately responsive. We did not take advantage of the breakfast service, so that's no longer an issue for us. The location cannot be beat: anything you want from shopping, fine dining, quick meals, highway access and other amenities are within a very short drive from the hotel. In fact, some wonderful restaurants and coffee shops are DIRECTLY across Western Avenue from the hotel. (Not a walkable distance, but an easy drive.
The best news? It's QUIET! Given the central location, you might think noise would be an issue. The hotel is set back off the main road and nestle around residential neighborhoods and office parks. We did not hear a THING at night; you would have thought we were in the woods.
I just don't understand why this Holiday Inn is #2 among Albany area hotels. It should be #1.
