    All of my family, friends and bridal party chose to stay at the Hilton Albany. The bridal suite was the perfect spot for the bride and the bridesmaids to get ready. I was wed in the church right across the road and had my wedding reception about 20 feet from the Hilton Albany at 90 State Events. When I came back from my wedding, there was chilled champagne waiting for us in our bridal suite. The next day we hosted a delicious brunch at the Hilton Albany from 10 a.m. to noon. The service was excellent, the food delicious, the service impeccable. We were not rushed at all and Kim, our attendant, was wonderful. I had a bunch of left over floral arrangements from the night before, and the Hilton Staff graciously took them and used them to decorate our buffet tables (which were already pretty). The staff and the Hilton helped us with all of our last minute "emergency" requests pleasantly. Parking was a breeze and the shuttle took us everywhere we needed to go for photos. It also picked up guests from the train station and the airport. I truly believe my wedding would not have gone as well as it did if we did not stay at the Hilton Albany. I highly recommend it.

    The Hilton Albany provided us with the perfect place for both bride and groom to get ready, as well as a beautiful location for all of our wedding guests to stay. The Bride’s suite overlooked the the NYS Capitol which gave a perfect backdrop for some incredible shots. The hotel staff, especially Shannon Canter, was the most accommodating and helpful throughout the entire process...from our initial booking to the morning-after breakfast. The proximity to everything in Albany is fantastic as well. Walking distance to lots of restaurants and bars, close to Patsy’s Barber Shop (a must-do for the groom on the morning of the wedding). And, if you don’t want to walk, their shuttle service is super fast and convenient. To top it all off, the Hilton Albany rate was just about the same as some of lower-end, budget, options available in Albany.

    We booked our venue only a few months ahead of our date. Jennifer, the coordinator at the hotel, was beyond perfect - she was helpful, accommodating and full of suggestions on everything from the room layout to centerpiece styles. Everything turned out exactly as we described to her.
