I’m newly engaged and looking for some help! We’re planning a May 2014 Albany wedding.
My fiance and I both have HUGE families, and we’re looking at a guest list of over 275. We’re hoping for an actual count of closer to 220, but need to find a venue that can handle our capacity and our budget. We’d really like to be as close to downtown Albany as possible, or at least close (15 min or less) to multiple hotels.
Does anyone have any suggestions on budget friendly venues downtown that can host over 200 guests? Thanks!!

We are having our reception at the Historic Warehouse at Catskill Point May 2013. Obviously not in Albany, but accommodates large groups (our group is also 200+) & is very budget friendly (not sure what your budget is but it is a $1500 site fee), but also very DIY. Hotels are 15 minutes either north or south on 87. It isn’t the fanciest place but the grounds are beautiful (right where the Hudson River & Catskill Creek meet) so for us it is perfect! Congrats & good luck!

Not quite downtown, but I went to my friend’s wedding at Treviso:
I’m pretty sure it could hold that many, and it was very centrally located.

- Wedding: June 2012 - Franklin Plaza
We got married at Franklin Plaza in Troy… Pretty sure it can hold up to 300 people and is very close to multiple hotels. Good luck!!
