Hotels close to the Studio

Last update: August 12, 2003


If you're coming in from out of town for one of our events, you've got several decent hotel choices. We can put them in two groups:

  1. Very close in downtown Schenectady
  2. A bit further out in the suburbs.

Downtown Schenectady

Both these hotels are less than two miles from the Studio of Bridge and Games. You'll be able to get back and forth in about five minutes. The downside is that downtown Schenectady is not the greatest place on earth. It's not a war zone or anything, but it's worth mentioning, especially if you're sensitive about things like that. If you're looking for food, you'll see a Friendly's (with notoriously slow service) from the parking lot of either of these hotels (they're actually right across the street from each other).


Days Inn Schenectady
167 Nott Terrace, Schenectady, NY 12308
(518) 370-3297

Their standard rate is about $80 (plus tax), but you can probably get a rate closer to $60 if you book ahead on the internet. We also negotiate a group rate for Council.

A bit farther out in the suburbs

These hotels are within eight miles of the Studio of Bridge and Games. A one-way trip is about ten minutes. The directions are all very direct; not a lot of twists and turns, so your risk of getting lost is low. As you drive along Troy-Schenectady Road (also known as Route 7), you'll see several places to eat. All of these hotels are also very close to Exit 6 of I-87 (the Northway).


Cocca's Esquire Motel
979 Troy-Schenectady Road, Latham, NY 12110
(518) 785-5571

Their standard rate is about $50 (plus tax) for a single bed room, and about $60 for a two bed room. We also negotiate a group rate for Council.
