Pros: location is terrific, staff is very friendly and the hotel is unique in its architecture and how it captures the history of the area
Cons: rooms are a little tired - meaning carpets and bathrooms could use a refresh but otherwise everything was great.

Pros: We received a really nice welcome from Tiffany at reception (in spite of the fact they were dealing with no less than 6 wedding parties that day!). Room was spacious.
Cons: The hotel is rather dated, and our room smelled damp. The swimming pool is tiny...really just for kids to splash around. Location is handy for the airport, but a good 15 mins from the centre of Albany.
