Albany was discovered in 1609 by Henry Hudson and settled by the Dutch in 1624. Benjamin Franklin's Plan of the Union was presented here in 1754, which is the basis of the city's moniker, 'Cradle of the Union.'
The area around our hotel in downtown Albany is brimming with history. Take a walking tour and visit the 18th century mansions and monuments in the Empire State Plaza. The Theatre Arts District is just two blocks away. You'll find Broadway shows, rock concerts, classical symphonies and plays on stage at venues such as the Palace Theatre, Sawyer Theatre (housed in the “Egg”) and the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall.
The Albany Institute of History and Art was founded in 1791 and is a must-see destination. You'll also find a tremendous amount of shopping near our downtown Albany hotel, from the Colonie Center Mall downtown to the specialty stores and boutiques of Lark Street.
