So, you’re going coming to the Assembly for the first time? Great!
Our hotel is in the heart of Albany, NY, the state capitol. In addition to attending recovery meetings, your assigned committee meeting, and the plenary sessions on Saturday, here are some tips and tricks to enjoy some of your time away from home.
Check-in starts at 3 pm and checkout ends at noon.
All rooms have refrigerators, microwaves, and coffee makers. Also, the hotel has a coffee shop on the ground floor.
Breakfast is NOT included in the hotel room rate. The Garden Grille, on the second floor near the reception desk, is open for breakfast from 7 -11 am; there are both a a buffet and a menu to choose from.
The Recovery Sports Grill, on the first floor, is open 11:30 am-10pm on Friday and Saturday.This is subject to change. (No, they didn’t change the name of their restaurant just for us; they always call it that.)
The hotel has a swimming pool, a fitness center and guest laundry.
We have reserved the Touhey Boardroom for an OA meeting on Friday night (8:15- 9:15) and Saturday morning, 7:45-8:45. Attendees will select a leader and topic of their choice. These meetings have a special flavor, in that you can hear other fellows’ stories and have fellowship with other OA members in Region 6.
