Historical Traveler Reviews Morgan State House Albany
What a Place!!
I have had a chance to stay at the State House a few times now and it simply gets better and better. I would have no qualms about recommending it to anyone who needs to be in Albany, or anyone who just wants to go to Albany and spend a wonderful few days surrounded by elegance, comfort and attention. Even if you don't have to go to Albany...GO!....just to stay here!
Quaint and Fabulous!
We had an absolutely wonderful experience staying at the Morgan State House. The alluring smell of breakfast served downstairs was the only motivator to get us up out of the extremely comfortable bed. The bathroom was delightful and there were two robes for us to use. The State House is close to museums, restaurants and bars. We look forward to a future stay!
A Rare Find
This gem in the heart of a small, charming city is underpriced. The depth of service is unmatched outside of destination spas. The high-thread-count bedclothes, the luxurious terrycloth robes, and the immaculate common spaces befit inns and B&Bs costing twice the price. Friendly staff willing to do anything asked of them, tips about bars and restaurants (including whom to speak to at the front door), service that includes the owner riding guests to the gated parking lot around the block; who gets this type of help in today's market? If your stay is for pleasure or your business requires peace and quiet, you must get reservations at the Morgan Statehouse. It will amaze you.
Excellence in Albany
I live in New York City and often travel to Albany, a few years ago I discovered The Morgan State House, and I can truly say that it was a great find. Being use to excellent service in Manhattan, I can say that the Morgan State House meets every high standard that I expect from a Bed and Breakfast.
Wedding Night - Amazing!
We stayed in 4B (king with large tub). Everything was perfect. Wonderful staff. The garden was gorgeous. My new in-laws stayed in 808 (queen, condo with beautiful city view) and they absolutely loved the room. The robes were cozy and fresh. Breakfast was delicious and they even have their own blend of coffee. We loved the hotel so much that we bought a down bed set for ourselves. (They gave us a discount for being a guest). If you are in the Albany area, you must stay at the Morgan State House. 5 STARS out of 5.
first of all, I stayed in one of the rooms in the Washington Park State House, so I have no knowledge of the rooms inthe main house.
The room we stayed in was decaying, and not worth the price. The bathroom had mold on the walls, and the nastiest towels I have ever seen in a hotel. I was reluctant to touch them. The sofa was stained, and the walls were thin (we could hear everything next door).
The only positive thing about the room was the bed, which was very comfortable. It was also a good location, within walking distance to restaurants and government buildings.
Again, perhaps the rooms in the main house are much nicer. We did have breakfast in the main house, and it seemed gorgeous. However, rather than spending money on fresh flowers, perhaps the owner could invest in some new towels??
I would not reccomend this place unless you can get it for under $100 a night.
Warm and Wonderful
Just returned to Florida from a weekend trip to Albany. The weather was cold but the Morgan State House was warm and wonderful. The staff was courteous and the accomodations perfect. The room, 4th floor front, was spacious and clean. The beds are heaven. The inn was decorated beautifully for the holidays. Highly recommended.
Lovely place, polite and helpful staff
had a terrific, luxurious weekend. no complaints whatsoever...
Quiet area within walking distance of many restaurants
We stayed here for one evening. We were in the Master Suite on the top floor. The room was nice, but alittle off. Nothing major, but just little things that I wouldn't have expected in a room that we were paying $200/night for. There was peeling paint and the big window was broken.
It was clean and comfortable with very gracious hosts.
Breakfast was self serve communal of juices, coffee, bagels and other baked good with two choices of an egg dish (one with meat and one without).
The garden was well kept.
I would recommend this inn because it was convenient, quiet and safe. I'm not sure I'd stay in one of the higher priced rooms again though because I'm not sure it was worth the price.
If you are traveling to Albany on busines or pleasure I highly recommend the Morgan State House Bed and breakfast.
The fee was reasonable, the rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. However, the thing that really sets this place apart is Janine and the rest of the staff. They really make you feel at home.
The state house is not only beautiful and well maintained but also within walking distance to Empire State Plaza and the Capital building.
If you want a nice steak and and a cocktail after your business meeting I highly recommend Mcguires. All in all, I was very surprised and pleased with the quality of these accomodations. Happy Travels,Don

... There's nothing like being surrounded by English-speaking people whom you can relate with completely. Plus I missed burgers and chipotle too much.
In an attempt to answer everybody's favorite question which I will probably be hearing for the next few months anyways, my favorite place that I visited was hands-down, Ireland. Seeing its countryside was a breathe of fresh air from all the cities we had previously we had been visiting. The Irish are also extremely friendly and ...
... of President Van Buren at the Ellis Island Museum. President Van Buren signed the order that sent the Cherokee on the Trail of Tears. I had to ask about it and our ranger guide said that Van Buren, even though he didn't support the spread of slavery into new states, was really not an abolitionist or human ...
... outing to Olana for the group this sunday but there were not enough takers so it was cancelled and oddly, there we were, four of us! Including Emma. Emma and I had to run because our house tour was just about to begin. I really enjoyed the tour and the description of the Churches' life there. Then we headed back home.
We departed the Lowell area across Hwy 2 towards Western Massachusetts, entering the Mohawk Trail across the Berkshires. We were welcomed with beautiful color, muted by the rains, yet nothing like we have seen before. I shot some iPhone photos which are below. We looked for possible campsite but everything was shut down for RV's like us.
We continued south along Hwy 7 then crossed over Into eastern upstate New York to catch the Taconic Trail just ...
... The road winds through forested hills and the Fall foliage was just beginning to show its mettle. There are scenic lookouts at various spots and we sampled the Hairpin Turn and climbed to Whitcomb Summit (in the car, I might add). The scenery was stunning and we enjoyed a brief picnic in the warm sun. Then back into North Adams before climbing up to the highest point in Massachusets, Mt Greylock (almost 4000 ft up), with views ...
