Simpsons...our attendance at two philadelphia orchconcerts the trak...the pools and workout room
All was lovely and I hope to be back fro some r & r in the fall.....looking for specials whenever u care to send them..thank you
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.)
The staff are friendly and make me feel like home. The food at the hotel was better than expectations.
The hotel smells like a nursing home and the shower is not that great.
Spaciousness and cleanliness of the room, comfort of the beds, very good food and service in the dining room, variety if selections on the menu, complimentary use of computer, monitor, and keyboard in business center, convenient location for travel in the Albany and outlying area.
No bad marks.
I loved it, very quaint, quiet, romantic, little on the pricey side though, most people in our convention there stayed somewhere else because of cost.
The layout of the center court and swimming area. Privacy.
The interior courtyard was charming, The staff behind the desk were very helpful and polite. Food in the dining room was delicious.
Overall, the staff was friendly and the services were great.
I was staying at the hotel for the sole reason of taking the Bar exam. While the place was beautiful and the staff very pleasant, there was one major flaw. I stayed in room 351 and the room was repressively hot. No matter how far down we turned the thermostat, it would not get any cooler and the air coming from the vent felt the same (read: warm) no matter if the thermostat was on 60 or 75. I don't like to complain, but it was very disappointing.
