At the third light, continue following signs towards I-87 & I-90. The hotel will come up on your right, before the highway, exactly 8/10 of a mile from the third traffic light.

If you are arriving from the SOUTH or from the WEST:

At next traffic light, go left on Albany-Shaker Road. You will pass under the highway; do not get back on I-87 south. Rather, proceed straight through the intersection, and prepare to make a left turn. The Desmond is the first building on your left, set back from the road.

If you are arriving from the EAST:

Take the Mass Turnpike West to Exit B1. “I-90 Albany West”. Remain on I-90 West for 15-20 miles; you will see downtown Albany to your left about midway through the trek. Stay on I-90 until you see signs for “Saratoga Springs North”.  Exit I-90 and enter the Northway I-87 heading NORTH towards Saratoga Springs/Montreal. Exit at Exit 4 (Albany Airport exit). At bottom of ramp go left onto Wolf Road. At next traffic light, go left onto Albany-Shaker Road. You will pass under the highway; do not get back on I-87 south. Rather, proceed straight through the intersection, and prepare to make a left-hand turn. The Desmond is the first building on your left, set back from the road.
