The Hilton Albany provides upscale accommodations, having recently received a $16-million renovation. Upgrades include revamped public spaces, a new restaurant and remodeled guestrooms and suites.
The hotel has a total of 385 guestrooms and suites, each one equipped with a mini-fridge, coffeemaker, flat-screen TV(s) and a spacious bathroom. Standard rooms have one king or two double beds, while suites have king beds and spacious living areas with sleeper sofas. All beds are equipped with Hilton Serenity Beds and deluxe bedding, including down comforter duvets. Cribs and rollaway beds are available upon request.
The hotel provides a fitness center and an indoor swimming pool — the largest pool in the area! And the hotel’s newest restaurant, Charter Restaurant, is actually one of four onsite dining options; the others are Sessions, a casual lounge; The Mr. B’s Coffee, serving Starbucks coffee, pastries and other light bites; and room service from Charter Restaurant.
Located in the heart of Albany, New York, the hotel conveniently puts families close to Albany International Airport (about 15 minutes away) and Albany Rensselaer Amtrak Train Station, just 5 minutes from the hotel.

Great location but that’s about it! Got a handicap K room because hotel was full. Moldy smell. Wimpy pillows. Waitress at breakfast forgot about us. Luckily manager made up for that the next day at breakfast!

very busy hotel in a great location for our purpose. The staff was friendly and helpful, room was clean and comfortable. I was supposed to have access to the concierge room for a little extra cost but my room was moved to a different floor. Was told the room was closed anyway and not available. Received breakfast instead.
