Healthy Housing: A Prescription Ordered for All Communities

The 2018 annual conference will be held at the Hilton Albany, located at 40 Lodge Street in Albany, NY, (518) 462-6611. The block room rate of $115/per night is no longer available. There are other hotels nearby that may have better rates. You can visit the Downtown Albany Business Improvement District website, and select ‘Lodging’ from the navigation menu on the left hand side of the page to search for nearby hotels. Rooms are filling up at all hotels very quickly, so you may need to widen your search.
