-Heather and Mary Jo, Sales Team:
As the busy convention season has begun to come on strong for the spring of 2012, we just want to remind you that we are here to help with any of your upcoming events. We look forward to reaching out to our planners as we continue our sales efforts in the capital region and surrounding areas.
We are very excited about a new project that is underway that our planners will be very pleased with. We are adding an additional 300 parking spaces via a new parking garage located right off of Woodlawn Ave. which is one block off Broadway behind the Saratoga Downtowner Motel. This parking garage will now accommodate 450 vehicles and it is complimentary parking! Please take a look at the link below of a publication from Saratoga Today that highlights the details of the project. The completion date of this project is scheduled for July 31, 2012.

Please remember that we are here to work with you to insure your entire event is a great success! Please contact Heather McElhiney or Mary Jo Janis today to set up a site tour of our beautiful city and all it has to offer.
