A vital part of New York for nearly three centuries, tourists flock to this capital city every year for good reason. To the north is Adirondack Park Preserve, one of the largest state parks in the country. Located within the Park is Lake Placid, site of the 1932 and 1980 winter Olympic Games. A trip to the top of the ski-jump tower is breathtaking regardless of the season. South of Albany is the smaller, but equally well-known Catskill State Park. A great spot for fresh water sports, the Catskills is a fun day-trip from Albany. Whether you're in town for a meeting at Albany's capitol building or you're a nature buff looking for a place to relax after a day of hiking, golfing, or fishing, Extended Stay America's Albany hotel is a perfect choice for you.
