When staying at our Albany hotel, a trip to the Crossgates Mall is a must, whether youre here for an event at SUNY Albany (Albany University) or just getting away from the city.

A great academic community, the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) and the College of St. Rose are also in the neighborhood. We cater to all guests, whether youre a healthcare professional at Albany Medical Center or simply touring a nearby college campus, our friendly staff members will make you feel at home.

Catch a game at the Times Union Center or take a stroll around Washington Park. The Palace Theatre always features exciting shows and dont forget to attend a SUNY athletic event. They bring athletes and fans to the area from around the country. Take in a Guilderland Soccer Tournament or visit the Saratoga Racecourse for an adrenaline rush.

Even if youre here to take the NYS Bar Exam, its important to treat yourself after those months of studying. How about a trip to the Altamont Fairgrounds to see whats happening? All year-round there are special events taking place. Employees of General Electric (GE) and Global Foundries are a couple of our regular guests, and we prioritize business travelers who want to feel at home. Close to the Amtrak Rensselaer Station and Albany International Airport, traveling is easy at our Albany hotel.
