Millenium. This was built in 1972 or 73 as a Sheraton, and was a Sheraton up until recently. It became Millenium a few months ago. My aunt and uncle had their wedding reception here in 1995 and it was really fun (even though I was only 4 I still remember it!!)

BTW to tell you the truth I do kinda like Comfort's new logo..at least they kept the Sun!! LONG LIVE THE SUN!!!!

It seems that some of the chains (Red Carpet being one, Econo/Travel Lodge I know of also) have been used on pre-existing, formerly independent, often older & smaller motels - in order to get the benefits of a known name and the services that come with it, assumably.  The only problem with that is that when you see a listing for one of these, you really have no idea what it will be like.

Actually, some are Buffalo, some are Michigan, some are canada, and some are in Pensylvania (I do quite a bit of traveling). I'd say theyre all about even. Quite a bit are from the Buffalo area though.

Do you guys remember Susse Chalet ??  I liked this hotel chain.  They had nice, recent motels troughout the northeast.  I liked their logo and name too because it was different than the usual words "inn" or "lodge" .

They had around 35 hotels and most of them were new constructions with a common style.

Some locations featured a bedside control center wich is probably inspired by Hojo's pamper panel.

Check out this link to a former Susse Chalet in Plymouth NH.  Its now a Best Inn but the old website remains

Ok Jag, thanks. I do a bit of traveling myself..heh. I'm hopefully coming out to Buffalo this summer to visit friends..

And, Zayre, I do remember Susse Chalet. There were two in Albany, but one is now an Econo Lodge, and the other is now a Holiday Inn Express.

The Econo Lodge one is on Wolf Road - but the other one (if you're talking about the one off Exit 9 of I-90 in East Greenbush) is now a Fairfield Inn - The Holiday Inn Express at the same exit is a newly built (within the last couple years) hotel.  If that's not the one you meant, I don't know where else there was a Susse Chalet in the area.

According to the 1992 brochure, there is the one on Wolf road (Albany/Colonie), and the one on route 4(East Greenbush).  The two other hotels are in Glens Falls and Spring Valley NY.

Does anyone remember the old original "Knights Inn" brand?
The hotel was laid out in a white and brown painted castle setting.  Now days, the Knights Inn name is often used on converstion properties and the old original Knights Inn buildings are called something else.  Does anyone remember these from "years" ago.  Have any in your hometown you can post a pic of?
