Stayed at this hotel while moving my son into RPI. My husband walked back from campus one day and it took about 7 minutes. Dinosaur BBQ is right across the street (highly recommend) and the town of Troy has many, many small restaurants and shops within walking distance. The Hudson River is just across the street and was a great place to hang out during our last few hours together before our tearful goodbyes. The breakfast was good, the lounge area was very nice and we loved the infused water and treats that were always available in the lobby. The vending machine was a little odd - tampon, condoms and eye drops right next to the chips and danish - and it needed some better snack options. The manager was very helpful and pleasant.
