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

... drove by the lovely Catskill park, walked in the little town of Hudson where we ate a hamburger in a very American style diner, aluminium counter and little stools.
He took me to the Olana state historic site, the house and estate of a famous landscape painter, Frederick Church, I downloaded one picture (of course not allowed to take pictures), and I accompanied him to an auction, I love to see the auctioneer going fast and hitting the hammer!
... back to beautiful river views. Our anchorage at Houghtaling Island was very pretty and we felt like we were in a jungle..... the birds were so loud and as the afternoon progressed the crickets took over. In the morning we were lucky to see a bald eagle right near our boat... after the fog lifted a little. We waited a little until it was clear before Marty pulled up the anchor. It was really hard to get up and really muddy- but we wouldn't have gone anywhere in any wind for ...
... those times when you go for it because this confluence of paintings all in one place may never happen again. This Van Gogh and Nature exhibit features nearly fifty paintings and drawings from thirty museums and private collections around the world. And Van Gogh is one of my most favorite artists! So how could we not go!
No photography was allowed – but interesting enough is that if you want to ...
... maybe we will treat ourselves to a dinner while we are here a few nights. We have ordered extra filters and will pick them up downstream at Lock 1 on Friday, so we will try to stay here until that time. We'll take advantage of the close walk to the store and stock up on more food before we leave. I might even do a real laundry instead of washing a few items at a time in the sink because that's not a far walk ...
... of the Hudson River School. You can see the landscape just as it was when they were originally painted. If you think about it, how terrific is it that this area has done such an amazing job of preserving land from development – and this effort is privately funded. I had been thinking that we would do that Art Trail, driving from spot to spot with a bit of walking, but it's Labor Day weekend and it ...
