“Cheap and Cheerful”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

The Clarion Hotel at the Century House was a great place to stay while we were in town visiting family. It was easy to find, clean. very comfortable, and quiet. Complimentary breakfast was continental, but good and the dining room was pleasant. Additionally, we were traveling with our two dogs and the hotel (a) didn't charge us very much for them and (b) had a nice trail behind the tennis courts where we could walk them. (Replete with doggie-do-do bags!)

We had no complaints and would recommend this hotel as good place to stay if you are in the Albany area.

Our flight from Albany was cancelled -- United, so what's new? -- and we needed a place to stay overnight. The Century House was the least expensive choices provided by United, so we chose it, having no idea what it might be like. Our mood was not good waiting for the complimentary shuttle to the hotel. But a very nice and polite young man fetched us and our mood began to brighten. We were met at the hotel by a very efficient and helpful desk clerk. Our room was clean, comfortable and even had complimentary wifi. We dined at the hotel restaurant, again not knowing what to expect. Again, we were in for a pleasant surprise. The menu was considerably more interesting than we expected and our meals were excellent. The onion soup was the best I have ever had. Our wait person was appropriately attentive -- neither hovered nor ignored. There was a party of about 15 senior adults seated next to us celebrating a birthday. Their (and our) waiter sang "When You're Young at Heart" . He obviously had musical theater training. Another pleasant surprise was that a full buffet breakfast was included in our room rate. The bacon was outstanding. But what really was outstanding was that buffet attendant came around to each table to inquire if everything was to satisfaction. Another gentleman dressed in a business suit also made the rounds. When it came time to take the shuttle back to the airport, we were surprised to find that the gentleman in the suit was the driver. He, Andrew Sypniewski, turned out not only to be the morning shuttle driver and breakfast manager, but also the hotel manager. Talk about multi-tasking! He, along with his entire staff were very courteous, friendly and helpful. Although we still had to face a United flight back home -- ugh -- our spirits had been lifted by an unplanned, but very positive experience at the Clarion Hotel at the Century House. We would judge this establishment a definite best buy!

I have stayed at the Clarion Century House on multiple occassions, and every one was great. The beds are comfortable, rooms clean, the staff outstanding and the bar (and guy on the piano!) make for great entertainment! Home away from home. Thank you!

OUTSTANDING !!!!!! I have been staying at the Century House for many years now I would not stay any where else the hotel staff are the best, they are there when and if you need them, the Breakfast is by far outstanding and the food plus drink in the lounge is beyond anything else .

This was my second stay at Century House for a business trip. I would highly recommend it. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Food is excellent. The location is very nice with a nature trail near by. The building has old world charm with modern day amenities. Only problem was the Wi-Fi was having problems during my stay.
