    We liked the location of the hotel. We did not care for the way that you had to reach the lobby from our fourth floor room. It was very convoluted and out of the way.

    I was there for the bar exam. I liked the fact that the hotel staff was genuinely concerned that our stay would be comfortable in order to take the exam. In other words, they took it seriously. I used the restaurant, room service and dealt with the front desk. They were fantastic. One night my air conditioner started to make noise and the maintenance guys were there in less than 5 minutes and corrected the problem immediately. Very professional staff and if I am ever in Albany again, I will definitely stay at the Desmond.

    Not a bad thing to say...

    Comfortable rooms, nice amenities (pools + hot tub, gym facilities), and an excellent effort by staff to provide concierge, airport shuttle, etc services

    Room service was sloppy. (two mornings in a row, no toast was delivered with breakfast, and the wrong charge was listed on one room service order.)
