4.5 out of 5. Based on 418 guest reviews, Very Good

Property Description

Our award-winning hotel is located 0.4 miles from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and at the center of historic downtown Troy, NY. The BEST WESTERN PLUS Franklin Square Inn Troy/Albany offers comfort and convenience within a short distance of all the major Albany, NY attractions. Troy, NY is where the Hudson River meets the Erie Canal. The one-time shipping center is no longer an industrial powerhouse - but architectural reminders of its glory days remain. Federal-style estates, industrial-era factories, Georgian brownstones, and 20th century bungalows lend a sense of history to leafy neighborhoods and cafe-lined waterfront. Stay at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Franklin Square Inn Troy/Albany as you visit historic Troy, NY, tour RPI, or attend your next wedding or event at one of our two luxurious ballrooms;the Franklin Plaza and Franklin Terrace.We look forward to having you with us!
