This is a great hotel at which to stay in Albany. I have already stayed at this hotel twice. The hotel is clean, it is easy to get to from the thruway, the staff is extremely friendly and, since the hotel is recessed from the nearest road (Western Avenue), the hotel is in a quiet area. Breakfast (including hot food such as omelets and sausages) is included with the price. The hotel is also extremely close to SUNY Albany (practically across the street).

We have been staying at this lovely Holiday Inn Express over many years, most recently on July 4 and 5, and will be there again on July 24. It is an especially nice Holiday Inn Express, set way back from the main road, with lovely landscaping. It feels like more of a full-service hotel and even has a pool (which we did not use.) The breakfast staff are always helpful. This last stay we had a problem with our air conditioning unit and wonderful employee Jabar G. went out of his way to make sure that everything was attended to promptly and to our liking. The hotel is just down the road from SUNY Albany, for those of you who have students attending college there. It is also about three miles to downtown and to The College of St. Rose.

Room Tip: If you are particular about your room at any hotel, call ahead and ask for what you want. The staff...

We were driving from Boston to Rochester and wanted to stop over half way. We also wanted to visit the Schyler house, the home of Alexander Hamilton's wife. We were happily surprised to find a 99 restaurant nearby for lunch. We loved the holiday express , the room was exceptionable, very clean and very cozy. Our daughter was with us and we went in their heated pool and she went to the work out room. They have a great breakfast buffet and a little garden in the back set up with tables and chairs. This stay started our trip off wonderfully.

Dear Priscilla M,

Thank you for choosing us for your stop over! I am glad that you enjoyed your stay.

If you ever stop over again, there are a number of great Historic houses to check out. Cherry Hill, The Ten Broeck Mansion and the Pruyn House to name a few. You are probably already aware of them but just thought I'd mention.

Thank you again!

I recently attended a 3 night training in Albany, and had stayed at the hotel. The training was held right on sight in the conference room.

This was super convenient. Easy place to find, right off the highway. Close walk to good restaurants/ bars. Short drive to downtown.

Hotel room was very good. Service was very good. Continental breakfast was above average.

Although it was off of a main road, it was in a nice, quiet neighborhood, mostly residential.

Nice pool, limited workout room.

I had a great experience here. The place to stay in Albany.

After a long drive from Bangor a very nice clean room and comfortable bed was what I needed and that is what we got here for our 1 night stay. The kids liked the warm pool. Breakfast was very good with hot omelets and pancake maker plus all the regular breakfast menu items. I would recommend this place. The cold beer at the lobby snack area was a bonus.

This Holiday Inn Express continues to provide excellent value at a reasonable cost. It's definitely among the top 5% in its category. Our manager, Jafar, was MOST helpful in meeting some of our special requests and housekeeping was responsive to our request to have our room made up ASAP. Our room was ample and the beds were most comfortable.
We plan on staying here on future trips.

Room smells musty and is small and feels like a cheap motel. Didn't bother to use any of the amenities. Dingy hallways and worn furniture. Really a disappointment and way overpriced. Has ruined any chance of us coming to a holiday inn express again.

I am very sorry to hear about the issues surrounding your stay with us. Our goal is to provide a quality stay, clean and comfortable rooms and excellent service, all the while exceeding our guests expectations. We clearly did not provide this for you.

Please contact me directly either through this site or at the hotel directly so we can make this right. I am on vacation until Wednesday but will look forward to being able to discuss this with you soon.
