The Convention will be held at the Saratoga City Center and THE SARATOGA HOTEL & CONFERENCE CENTER. The main overflow hotel is The Courtyard by Marriott. Our secondary overflow hotel is the Hilton Garden Inn.
Both the Saratoga Hotel and Conference Center and The Courtyard by Marriott are sold out. We booked over 95% of the rooms at the Saratoga Hotel and Conference Center. The hotel is holding the additional rooms and will not release them to us. The Courtyard will not release more rooms to us. The Saratoga Hotel and Conference Center, the Saratoga Downtowner, the Holiday Inn and the Hilton Garden Inn are all on Saratoga's main street. We have also arranged a small number of rooms at three additional hotels in Saratoga as described below. We will have a complimentary shuttle service between these six hotels during the days of the convention.

However, as a resort destination Saratoga has a number of bed and breakfasts and smaller hotels, many of them within walking distance of the Convention.
