In preparation for the 2020 season, we are excited to share some information about housing for the 2020 Eastern Synchronized Skating Championships, which will take place January 15-19, 2020.  We have contracted with over 20 hotels, some of which are in the heart of the state’s capital, others may be walking distance to the arena or conveniently located close to the Albany airport or near SUNY Albany.  We will be using a “Request and Place” process of assigning hotels as described in more detail below. Please see the timeline below and save these important dates!



Please use the form above to make all hotel requests for Easterns 2020. This form will ask for specific information about how many rooms (and what type) you need for each night as well as your top choices based on the hotel list provided.

Visit to view available hotels and information about each. 



  • June 1, 2019 – We will begin taking hotel request forms

  • July 1, 2019 – We will begin to communicate hotel assignments and teams will be asked to finalize the details of their contract with the hotel directly

  • August 1, 2019 – Teams will be required to complete hotel bookings and contracts with their assigned hotel

  • December 2019 – Deadline for any final changes to hotel bookings with assigned hotel

ALL hotel rooms are required to be reserved within the 2020 Eastern Synchro Housing Block by using the form posted above. Teams who do not book through this block will incur a fee which must be paid prior to the team receiving credentials at the competition. Hotels have been instructed not to complete bookings with teams without going through the above process. We will do our best to ensure that all teams are staying together and all teams stay in a hotel that meets their needs.  We can’t do this without your cooperation so please make note of the timeline above and wait for further instruction before trying to book your room on your own. 

Please also see the information below on local bus companies, local restaurants and venues that may be good for team meals and team activities, and suggestions on what to see and do in the Albany area! 

In the meantime, if you have any questions you can contact us at

We look forward to welcoming everyone to Albany in January 2020!
