Albacon 2014.5 will be held at the Best Western Albany Airport Inn on Wolf Rd. in Albany, NY. This location is very convenient to both I-87 Exit 4 and the Albany International Airport. They are also one of the few hotels on Wolf Rd. with a traffic light to make getting out of the parking lot much easier.

There is lots of information here, please read it all.

The rate for guest rooms is $92/night (plus tax) for either a Double Queen or a Single King room (there are no suites). That rate includes complimentary WiFi Internet and a full hot American breakfast buffet from 5:30AM to 10:00AM daily. There is a complimentary shuttle that runs from 4:15AM to midnight which serves the Albany International Airport, any Wolf Rd. location, and for Albacon members, the Amtrak train station. Every room has a refrigerator and microwave and the hotel has an indoor pool and fitness center (sorry, no hot tub / spa). Late checkout (until 4:00PM) is available for Albacon members at no charge upon request (pending hotel availability). You can visit the hotel’s website here.

The hotel is two stories and does not have an elevator! If you have trouble with stairs, make sure you request a room on the first floor when you make your reservation! If you need a handicap accessible room, please contact the Albacon Hotel team to insure that you get the room type you need using the Hotel Special Request Form located at the bottom of the Hotel Reservations page.

This property is entirely non-smoking.
