We've secured a block of rooms at the Adria Hotel and Conference Center in Bayside, about a 10 minute drive to our meeting site at the US Merchant Marine Academy Museum at King's Point, NY. $130/night plus tax (free on-site parking and breakfast included)- a rate that's hard to beat in the NYC area. . . and a 5-minute walk to the Bayside station of the LIRR if you plan on spending some time in NYC while you're there. Phone the Adria direct at 1-800-272-3742 to reserve your room by telling them you're with the "SMSC Group". Our rate covers October 5-6 only, so book early if you want to extend your stay at the same rate, since room availability is limited.
