Hotel Overview

Show More / Less

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!
