Albany should not be a hotel cos it does not have the actual stds of a hotel. The 1st room i was given room 39 was dirty nbi has to go to reception to ask foe another one. The reception is deceiving cos it looks clean but joooo. From 1st floor the smell of the carpets is unbearable considering that its the breakfast place. Then the others floors n rooms are not welcoming from walls to carpets need a redo. In fact i regretted cos i wanted my family to have a great time but we did not cos i guess its mangement do not care
