Local Accommodations: Near By:
You have some very interesting choices in Saratoga Springs, but beware: The rates skyrocket in August with the racing season. You'll probably enjoy staying on the main drag, Broadway, where you can rub shoulders with the college students and get a good feel for the social life in Saratoga Springs. Just 5 minutes from the college is the Inn at Saratoga (231 Broadway; 518-583-1890), a historic Victorian structure with 34 rooms. Rates range from moderate to expensive and include continental breakfast. The Adelphi Hotel (365 Broadway; 518-587-4688), open from May through October (weekends only in May), ranges from moderate to very expensive. Prime Hotel (534 Broadway; 518-584-4000) is a good modern pick with an indoor pool, sauna, weight room, and tennis and golf privileges. Rates range from moderate to expensive. The Holiday Inn (232 Broadway; 518-584-5000) is another safe bet. One of the majestic old resort hotels, the Gideon Putnam Hotel (Saratoga Spa State Park; 518-584-3000) stands amidst 1,500 acres, with loads of activities including golf, swimming, tennis, cross-country skiing, and ice-skating. They even have mineral baths. Rates vary with the season, from moderate to expensive. Bed-and-breakfasts abound. Westchester House (102 Lincoln Ave.; 518-587-7613) has 7 guest rooms. Eddy House (Nelson and Crescent Aves.; 518-587-2340) has 5 rooms, with prices in the moderate to expensive range. Six Sisters Bed and Breakfast (149 Union Ave.; 518-583-1173) is 10 minutes from campus (as are the others), and the prices vary from moderate to expensive. Inexpensive accommodations can be found at the Grand Union (92 S. Broadway; 518-584-9000), about a mile from Skidmore.
