Completed Summer 2013

$16 million renovation

The hotel’s  $16 million renovation repositioning resulted in renaming the hotel as Hilton Albany on March 8, 2013. Firmly established as Albany’s first choice hotel for travelers and meeting planners, all areas of the hotel have been provided a new look meeting or exceeding the sophisticated designs and elements of the Hilton Hotels and Resorts’ stringent brand standards.

The exciting improvements include:

  • New Main Entrance

  • New Elevators & Landings
  • New Fitness Center
  • Enhanced Indoor Pool Area

Guests now enjoy the new generation guestrooms. Refrigerators have been added to 100% of the guestrooms

The function and event spaces will be enhanced with a new and sleek progressive design to create a controlled environment that professional meeting and event planners have been accustomed to in major metropolitan markets.

Most noticeable on the Event Level is the addition of a glass atrium enclosure overlooking the large indoor heated pool.  Complimenting the pool on the hotel’s Patio Level is the new Hilton Fitness Center featuring Precor® exercise equipment, low impact flooring,  Aquaverve® water cooler and filtration system, along with many SPRI®Fitness accessories.

The new Porte-cochère is only a hint to changes for the lobby and restaurants. These areas reflect the most noticeable change of the hotel’s floor plan. The complete redesign of the main entrance level assures four-season comfort in the lobby featuring a new expansive revolving door. Greeting guests will be the guest agents themselves at the open registration desk design  – immediately portraying an inviting and comforting experience for the guests.
