Announcing the all new Capital Center, an 82,000 square foot meeting and conference facility in downtown Albany, New York's historic capital city.
Construction of the facility is underway and will continue through mid-year 2016 when it is set to open. The Capital Center will be connected to the Empire State Plaza Convention Center and the Times Union Center arena, creating a meeting space triple the size of any other convention center in Upstate New York.
The Capital Center will contain 12,300 square feet of Pre-Function Space, 28,000 square feet of Multi-Purpose space, almost 10,000 square feet of meeting space, in addition to administrative and support spaces and three levels of underground parking. More information on the Capital Center can be found at the Albany Convention Center Authority website.
There are multiple hotels within walking distance and near the Capital Center including 74 State (74 rooms), Hilton Albany (386 rooms), Hampton Inn Downtown (165 rooms), Holiday Inn Express (135 rooms), Hilton Garden Inn at Albany Medical Center (125 rooms) and the TownePlace Suites (106 rooms). The historic DeWitt Clinton hotel adjacent to the Capital Center site is also undergoing a $48.5 million renovation to become a 204-room Renaissance by Marriott with a scheduled opening of mid-year 2015.
