On behalf of the Albany County Convention & Visitors Bureau, we are delighted to welcome the New York Physical Therapy Association 2013 Conference to New York State's historical Capital City.

We are certain your conference experience will be productive and personally rewarding, but will also provide you with an opportunity to discover all that Albany has to offer. From shopping to dining, to arts and entertainment opportunities, and countless cultural cuisine venues, Albany has it all for you to take in!

The Desmond Hotel & Conference Center is centrally located. You will find many options for shopping and dining in close proximity, including over 40 restaurants and Colonie Center Shopping Mall which features L.L. Bean, P.F. Chang's, The Cheesecake Factory, Sephora, Christmas Tree Shops and Regal Cinemas Stadium 13.

Recreation and relaxation are yours for the taking at the Desmond.  Take advantage of the two heated pools and fully equipped fitness center featuring state of the art exercise equipment, flat screen TV's and Jacuzzi. Additionally, cap off your day in the richly furnished, yet intimate and cozy on-site Old English style pub, The Tavern. Cocktails, cordials and an endless line of beer taps accompany a lite-fare menu of appetizers, salads, sandwiches and burgers. 

Just a stone's throw away from the hustle and bustle of Wolf Road is the Crossings of Colonie, an ideal place for walking, running, biking and skating. Conveniently bordering the Crossings is the Rudy A. Ciccotti Family Recreation Center, one of the most comprehensive fitness facilities in the Capital Region.

Approximately 20 minutes from Wolf Road is the contemporary design of the Empire State Plaza, completed as a vision of Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller in 1978. The Plaza was built not only to serve as government offices, but as a center of arts, culture and community activity. The New York State Museum (the largest State Museum in the country), the Empire State Art Collection and the Empire State Performing Arts Center (known as The Egg for its unusual and distinctive design) are all contained at the Plaza. In addition, you will be able to visit the NYS Capitol as well as the Albany Institute of History & Art.

During your stay, be sure to take advantage of Downtown Albany's Fall Restaurant Week taking place October 19-25, 2013.

Listed below are several useful links that will provide you with additional information regarding services, shopping and dining in the Capital District. If there is anything we can do prior to your visit or while you are here, please contact Debby Goedeke, Convention Services Manager at 1-800-258-3582 x 100. Please enjoy your stay and come back soon.
