The Elevators should function better. Each night another unit was not working. One night an Elevator became stuck and had to be rescued.

The hot water handle in the bathroom would not turn and some of the wall paper was peeling above the shower. Over all EXTREMELY clean.

The only thing I can complain about is that the elevators were horribly slow. There are 15 floors, with four elevators, one being out of service. They could not handle the volume of people, noting several conventions and a large concert at Times Union. Had that other elevator been working,perhaps the delays could have been avoided. However, in the long run, that was a small inconvenience to us. Our room was clean and spacious and the bed was very comfortable. We had the buffet breakfast; it was generous in selection and good. We were there for a concert at Times Union. The walk was about a block away and we felt secure walking back at midnight. Overall a good experience for an overnight stay.

Terrible Hotel... When I checked in in to the first room the tub has mold on it and the ceilings were covered in mold... asked to change rooms and then the room that I changed to had paint flaking from the ceilings like ice sicles... Horrible... woke up in the morning with flakes of white paint laying in the bed... There seems to be no quality control... Extremely Disappointed... This is a Hilton Property.... wow.... Do yourself a favor and do not stay here...
