Accommodations Near Stony Brook

Since hotels on/close to campus are already almost fully booked due to the holiday season, our main recommended hotel is Ramada Plaza Hotel in Holtsville (11 miles from Stony Brook University). The Department of Physics and Astronomy will sponsor bus transportation during the mornings from the Hotel to Stony Brook University (from Tuesday to Saturday) and back on the evenings (from Tuesday to Friday), ~20-30 minutes after end of sessions. The cost of an equivalent taxi (uber) ride is around 40 (20) usd. Very close to the Hotel, there is a bar/grill place (Sonoma Grill). For the day of arrival, the hotel is reachable from Ronkonkoma train station by taxi for around 20usd including gratuity (or you can use uber).

The second option is the Holiday Inn Express Stony Brook, just 3 miles from Stony Brook University. We have a block reservation from Monday to Friday, but only a very limited number of rooms is available from Friday to Saturday (presently 25), at a higher rate. If you book very early you might be to get a room for the whole period. A free shuttle is available from Stony Brook/Stony Brook Train Station to the hotel and back (ask the hotel for more information).

The third option is the Hilton Garden Inn Stony Brook. This is geographically the most convenient option, since it is located directly on campus, 10 minutes from the workshop venue. However, the hotel could not provide a block or rooms because of the high demand on the weekend, but please check on booking.com (or other sites) if you still find a room from Tuesday to Saturday at a reasonable rate.

Hotels with booking.com

We recommend to check booking.com for special deals and rates, even for the other recommended hotels.

We can only provide transportation from Stony Brook to a single hotel (Ramada) and back, but people planning to rent a car can consider other options as well.


Another possibility is to book a room or appartment on AirBnB (link).

Tax (~10%) is not included in the rates provided here. Each participant is responsible for making his/her own reservation and should make the reservation as early as possible since we expect a large demand for rooms during the Workshop period. Please mention the reservation code when reserving rooms if you want to make use of the block booking.
