If you are staying at the Hilton at the Albany Medical Center, make sure you ask for a room near the elevators. If you don't walk well, it can be a bit of a hike to the rooms at the end of the hall.
Nice hotel and very nice staff. AARP discount is 10%. AAA is 5%.
Microwaves and Refrigerators, Complimentary Coffee in rooms.
Ask for bottled water at check in. They'll give 2 complimentary bottles.
If you ask for down pillows after check-in, no problem.
Easy access to hospital.
Charge for parking- $10.00
There are cheaper hotels in the area, but the place is clean (I checked under the mattress corners for bedbugs..there is a bedbug invasion in NY), and right at the hospital.
