Lodging & Accommodation Information

Members and friends attending the event will make their own lodging arrangements.

There are many hotels and B&Bs in the area, but here are not many lodging options

in Hyde Park itself.

return listings for hotels that are not even close to Hyde Park.

Some will even be on the other side of the Hudson River in Ulster County.

 Make sure you get an accurate location before making your reservation.


Hotels and B&Bs fill up fast at this time of the year.

Some require a two-night minimum stay

so make sure to ask when making your reservation.
