Wonderful Venue - Highly Recommend
I can't speak highly enough of Tom Nicchi and the staff at the State room. My daughter's wedding was there this past weekend and it went beyond our expectations. They were highly organized and helped with planning the perfect wedding reception every step of the way. The staff are very friendly and extremely professional. The food is like no other. So fresh and delicious. Our guests raved about their appetizers and entrees. Tom was with us from the beginning of the day until the end. Check out their website and then call and arrange a visit to view the beauty of the architecture and decor. There is no venue in the Capital Region that compares to the State Room.Sent on 05/27/2019

Dream wedding! When my son and his fiancé were looking at venues, the reviews for the state room were almost too good to be true! But we quickly found that the State Room is worthy of all the reviews and many awards! We could not have been happier with every part of the event from start to finish. Tom, Eric and Tara are exceptional! Whether you have a big budget or small budget the State room has a package that is incredibly competitive. We thought the price was extremely reasonable for all that was included. Their attention to detail will allow for all of the wedding party and the guests to relax and enjoy the day! The downtown photo’s: stunning, the vault: SO cool, the food fabulous! The service excellent! The building in itself is a wonder...so much character and charm. We all wish we could do it again! Thank you for making the day so special!Sent on 11/13/2019

Tom and his courteous and friendly staff at the State Room are a pleasure to work with! I highly recommend the State Room to anyone looking for a truly unique venue in Albany. The professionalism is unparalleled.
The breathtaking view from the main events area is unforgettable. And the experience and skill of the events team always makes weddings go perfectly. It's a special experience to photograph at the stateroom, because it's always apparent that guests are having a special life experience. I highly recommend them!
