Hotels & Transportation

Hotel/Lodging

Organizers for the 2020 ISOCM/SVS Symposium have reserved a block of rooms with a reduced rate of $149/night at two local hotels.

 

Each hotel has free parking, wi-fi service, and a full breakfast available for those attending the Symposium. (Breakfast will not be offered at the seminary during the Symposium.)

Each hotel has also graciously offered the $149/night rate for those attending the 2020 Symposium who wish to arrive early or stay beyond the dates of the Symposium, depending on room availability.

 

Please contact the hotel of your choice directly via links below to make your discounted reservations for the group: SVOTS/ISOCM Music Symposium as soon as possible, as the hotels routinely sell out and will be unable to provide us with additional rooms closer to the dates of the symposium.

AirBnB

The online reservation service for homestays has a number of local options in Crestwood and the surrounding Yonkers area.

Airline Reservations

Organizers suggest checking www.cheapoair.com for the best airfare into and out of New York as there are 4 possible airports: Newark International (in New Jersey), JFK International (Queens, NY), LaGuardia (Queens, NY), and Westchester Airport (Westchester, NY).

 

Summertime airfares in and out of New York tend to increase by early spring.

 

Rental Cars

All major car rental companies have facilities at New York airports, however plan on 30-60 additional minutes to rent or return a car at LaGuardia while the airport is under construction.

 

Uber/Lyft

App based transportation services are available in Westchester County and between the airports and Seminary. These tend to be significantly more affordable than taxi services from any of the major airports.
