Explore Hotel

Our award-winning hotel is located 0.4 miles from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and at the center of historic downtown Troy, NY. The Best Western Plus Franklin Square Inn Troy/Albany offers comfort and convenience within a short distance of all the major Albany, NY attractions.

Troy, NY is where the Hudson River meets the Erie Canal. The one-time shipping center is no longer an industrial powerhouse - but architectural reminders of its glory days remain. Federal-style estates, industrial-era factories, Georgian brownstones, and 20th century bungalows lend a sense of history to leafy neighborhoods and cafe-lined waterfront.

Stay at the Best Western Plus Franklin Square Inn Troy/Albany as you visit historic Troy, NY, tour RPI, or attend your next wedding or event at one of our two luxurious ballrooms;the Franklin Plaza and Franklin Terrace.

We look forward to having you with us!

Hi Sir, Thank you for leaving a review with us and providing feedback. I looked at your reservation and the difference was state and local taxes. Booking.com only quotes the room rate. I apologize for the inconvenience and hope you were still able to enjoy your stay with us. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the hotel directly at 518.274.8800. Best, Sarah C.
