Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I'm currently in the middle of a five day stay at the Parker Inn & Suites with my family, and it's been a really terrific experience. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the amenities make it feel like I'm living in my own apartment. The manager, Darshan has been kind and helpful at every turn; he's been an integral part of why the stay has been so nice. Also, it's conveniently attached to the Proctors Theatre so you don't even need to go outside to see your favorite shows; lots of great places to eat steps away.

I would like to emphasize how much I enjoyed staying at the Parker inn & suites.
I had a spacious room with a kitchen. The room has been serviced daily to my best satisfaction.
The stuff was friendly and very helpful and attentive for all my requests and inquiries, especially Bob and Christine.
I highly recommend the Parker inn &suites.

Went to a wedding in Proctors and it was so wonderful having a hotel in the same building. Darsan and Christine are AMAZING. Christine was a wonderful babysitter for me while I was being a drunk fool going back and forth to my car and any other foolish thing I was doing. She kept me safe. Darsan is an amazing Boss and really looked out for us when we needed a room. The rooms are adorable and the showers are HUGE!!!! We love you guys and will absolutely be back again. xoxo Le’Anne and Jesse

I understand we are in unique times but my fiance and I have a wedding coming up in August and had some questions regarding our reservation. 20+ phone calls, and 6 emails over the past month and a half have gone unanswered. Hotel Phone doesn't have an answering machine so can't leave a message.

Really just looking for another way to reach someone to make sure we aren't charged for rooms and can request our new date. Once that is done I am fine with editing/removing this review.

Let me know the best way to reach someone.

Like other reviews, we have not been able to reach this hotel. We have called and emailed. We also tried via contact screen and it doesn’t work. We never received an email confirmation and there is no option on line to manage our reservation. We need to cancel as our plans have changed but are finding it impossible to reach them. It sounds like this is their MO which at best is bad business and at worst a ploy.

This small renovated inn is just what I was looking for in Schenectady. It is conveniently located on the main street and the room was spacious and well-appointed. I would definitely recommend it. My only comment (and the reason for 4 stars instead of 5) is that we happened to be staying during a show at Proctor's. We left for the morning and when we returned mid-day, there was absolutely no parking left for hotel patrons. Even those spots designated for guests were take by theater goers.

I travel for work every week and tried several hotels and Airbnb's in the area, including Albany. My search is over now, I am a regular here. Clean and spacious rooms, great location, excellent staff, many classic touches, stores, theatre, etc. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Albany or Schenectady and surrounding areas. Great boutique hotel.

Loved The Parker Inn & Suites. Super convenient location--one block from the train, YMCA, restaurants and shopping. Perfect for seeing a show/working at Proctors as it is attached to the theater.
The rooms are comfortable, clean and bright. Darshan, the manager, is so nice and accommodating and helped us arrange a group reservation with ease. Would highly recommend choosing this hotel over others in the area!

Answer from Andrew S

I'm thrilled to see we are all in agreeance about the status of Schenectady! To add to what these lovely guests have said, the city of Schenectady employs "Ambassadors" for the city who help those new to the area. They will hold an umbrella for you, give you information about the city, even walk you to your car!
