We left our lock at the Guard Gate bound for Amsterdam. We had quite a ride in the first lock, Lock 7. We were locking through with our buddy boat, the Gray Fox, when the lock had a malfunction and the water came into the lock from only one side and pushed us away from the lock wall. Gray Fox was pushed all the way across the lock. We were able to get a line secure to only get pushed halfway across. Luckily, ...

We've met a couple from Iowa that are doing the Great Loop on a boat named Gray Fox. We’re both headed west towards Buffalo so we’re traveling together for a while.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Hotel Albany
This was my first time staying at the Crowne Plaza in Albany. There was a bunch of people staying there to catch the BIG RED FREAKOUT hockey games for RPI in Troy. The service was great, and the rooms were excellent. They were nice and spacious, always kept nice and clean...and you are given a nice little welcoming package in your room upon your arrival! What a nice treat!!! Not to mention the the hotel is very close to the highway, and other shops....making the location great. The one small thing that I was not happy with was there parking structure. It wasn't attached to the hotel, so you had a bit of a walk, which is not too enjoyable when it is really cold out...and doesn't seem to justify the parking fees! But what a great place. I would recommend it without hesitation. It is a great place, especially for the price. I would stay there again in a heart beat.
We stayed for two nights. Got a great deal on the room and were very pleased with our stay. The bed was great and the extras at the hotel were able considering the great deal we got. The gym had a lot of cardo equipment but was short on weights. The view was great. Directions to local attractions and airports were very detailed.
Excellet! A Great Improvement
Beds were heavenly! Slept better there then I have in any other hotel. I have stayed here for the past 3 years and I must say that they have improved this place dramatically! Staff was efficient and friendly, very relaxing by the pool. Just heaven.
TV not kid friendly
We stayed overnight on July 17-18 and found the room to be fine for the price, but we were shocked by the television. While flipping through the non-premium channels with my 11 year old daughter in the room at 4:00 PM in the afternoon I was quite surprised to stumble upon a very hard core porn channel. I was even more surprised when I quickly hit the next channel, only to find a second hard core porn channel. Parents should be warned about the television at the Crowne Plaza.
I've stayed in many hotels throughout the US and in Europe and have never seen these very graphic channels offered on a non-premium basis. Guests should be able to see what is on television without having to ask their children to leave the room.
Am writing for two adults...the food was tasteless, cold and overpriced.
Two of my friends and I recently ate at the main restarunt and found our dinners to be mostly tasteless. What did have taste..the cream sauce on tuna steak and in the seafood plate was totally disgusting...to add to our dissatisfaction was the fact that the meals were lukewarm to top them off. Neither dinners were more than sampled and left for the dogs. It is no wonder that the dining room was empty when we arrived and empty when we left.
We stayed at the Crowne Plaze for one night. It is an awesome location if you are going to the arena! Only two blocks away. Definately worth it to not wait in traffic! Nice rooms, comfy beds. Nice lounge. Desk staff was very friendly. Would recommend.
BIG Customer Service ProblemS
In Albany once a month for business, I have spent 8 nights at the Crowne Plaza this year. (35 nights for our group total). The location is ideal, saves the morning commute. Everything else is - well - questionable. Check-in is slow, often 15 minutes or more, Check-out is worse 30+ minutes there. Room service is great, but the restaraunt, though empty, makes the check-in counter seem speedy. Cold showers, substituting smoking rooms, lost reservations, attempted rate swapping, make the broken pop machines seem like perks! I'm still waiting on a toothpaste delivery....
Nice place to stay
Thought this hotel was in a great downtown location. The room we stayed at was wonderful with a great view of the city. The dinner we had at the hotel wasn't that good, but breakfast made up for it. Overall a nice hotel.
Good but not Great
Stayed here for one night when I went to a concert in nearby Coca Cola Arena. It's about two blocks away from the arena which makes it an ideal choice. It is also one of the nicer hotels in the area. However, I felt that for the price it could have been a little bit better. My only true complaint is the price.
A bit disappointing
The Crowne Plaza-Albany is a beautiful hotel outside. The restaurant inside was very good. The rooms were well-appointed. However, it was impossible to control the room temp and it became so warm and uncomfortable during the night, I had to open the window. In addition, no soda machines were available on the floors, so there was no way to cool off except to grab some ice. A bit disappointing for a Crowne Plaza. 2 1/2 stars if I could rate it that way.
