How to Get There
We stayed at the Morgan State House for one night while waiting for my sister to meet up with us in Albany. Our room was absolutely gorgeous, with a separate sitting area. It overlooked the garden, which was lovely (and a great place to sit with a glass of wine and relax). The bathroom was spacious. There is no elevator, so it's not for those who can't shlep their suitcases (or themselves) up the stairs, but that was not a problem for us.
Our only criticism would be of the continental breakfast, which we found to be a little sparse. It consisted of cold cereal, yogurt, some muffins that were cold from the fridge, toast, and bagels. In other words, uninspiring. Given how wonderful the rest of Morgan State House is, I'd suggest adding some protein options and maybe warming up the muffins. I understand it's a continental breakfast, and therefore nothing warm, but I've had many with protein like cheese and meats. Just a though!
In all other ways, Morgan State House was a wonderful and memorable stay!
We wanted a getaway trip from NYC for the 4th and our stay at Morgan State House Inn is beyond satisfaction. The staff (Janine, John! and Amanda) are so welcoming and the property is very well maintained and professionally managed. The beautiful brownstone has all the convenient facilities inside that makes the stay both convenient and pleasant. The garden at the back is lovely and romantic. Its location is superb, places such as Washington Park, great shops and restaurants in the neighborhood and the Empire State Plaza (where the fireworks are) are all in walking distance. Reserved parking spots are available right at the back the of building. The staff are so thoughtful that they provide recommendation for activities and also coupons for shopping and dinning in the nearby shops and restaurants. We love the space so much that we extended out stay for one more night. We will definitely come back to stay here when visiting Albany again. THANK YOU again to all the Morgan State House Inn staff for our great experience! We highly recommend them for anyone who is looking to have a real taste of Albany in her warmth, history and charisma:)
This is a beautiful home in the historic center of Albany, near many restaurants. The rooms are nicely furnished and the bathrooms are beautifully renovated, but the house could use some updating for the price of staying here. Appreciated the availability of gated parking and the availability of snacks and breakfast in the kitchen.
The biggest problem is that the window air conditioning units are not sufficient for the very large size of the rooms, so I would be cautious about staying during hot weather.
