On behalf of the Albany County Convention & Visitors Bureau, we are delighted to welcome the 2010 USS Albany Reunion to New York State's historical Capital City.
We are certain your reunion 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!
Hotel Albany is located in the heart of downtown Albany. A few blocks from your host hotel 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. Make a special stop to see the USS Albany Exhibit at the Albany Visitors Center, which includes the original bell from the USS Albany CG-10. All of these venues are within walking distance of the Crowne Plaza. In addition, you will be able to visit the NYS Capitol as well as the Albany Institute of History & Art. Our rich 400 years of history compliments our contemporary destination.
