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

... the Christmas Tree Stand. I had to leave it in Sunderland with the hopes of Dan proudly displaying it in December. On the bright side, I fit about 90% of my shoes in Princess.
Toby is not handling the move well so far. He's tried to go home with neighbors and their dogs on several occasions, and is currently on a hunger strike. Hopefully once he realizes he is not airplane bound this time he will calm down. He has a pretty legit bed in the backseat of Princess and ...
Third day on the road, went from Rhinebeck to Waterford, NY. That's about 110km. It was quite a long day. Sores are starting to appear... you know where. The ride was very nice along the Hudson river. Went through Albany, capital of New York, which seemed like a very cool city. Then cycled to Waterford to the "campsite", and just a few meters before we got the place, my tire went flat. First flat tire of the trip, and I know, not the ...
... ropes through the locks and they were so close together, time didn't allow for too much photography.
Once we made it through the Troy Federal Lock, we headed to Albany, NY.
... during our journey so far. Our vertical height is 22 feet. Many of the bridges we have traveled underneath are so close that we can reach up and touch the bottom of them if we are on the flying bridge. The canal is extremely high right now and that makes the height of these bridges much less giving. ...
... the toll booth to get a ticket, and get off the turnpike almost immediately, so the toll is a whopping $0.00. I think they need to charge more because the roads around there were terrible!! I wonder how much paper they use printing those tickets? We got to Albany and followed Alice (you remember, that's the Garmin), thru some pretty bad looking neighborhoods. Hmm. I wondered how safe Roxy, and George would be? Turns out the hotel had a fenced, well ...
