New Haven Info

SCHEDULE AND TRAVEL INFO:
Once you have registered and paid for the course – – www.eiskillsgroup.com/certification-2   – – there are three things to do before the workshop:

Accommodations:
Omni New Haven Hotel
155 Temple St New Haven, CT

Probably the closest to the workshop location. I often stay here.
The Study At Yale
1157 Chapel St New Haven
888 430-9267
www.studyhotels.com
Newer place, close and near restaurants. Hipper and cooler than the Omni but almost always more expensive.
Courtyard by Marriott at Yale
30 Whalley Avenue New Haven
(203) 777-6221 or 1-800-465-4329
You can walk to the workshop location from here as well. Less expensive than the Omni or The Study.
New Haven Hotel
229 George St New Haven, CT 06510
800-804-6835
Very close. Not as fancy as the Omni but also less expensive. And more centrally located than the Courtyard.
Graduate Club
221 Church Street, New Haven, CT, 06510
(203) 562-3147

Looks like an interesting option, less expensive than other options but also an easy walk. Call them and read the reviews to see what you think.

OTHER OPTIONSGenerally, see http://www.bedandbreakfast.com/new-haven-connecticut.html
AirBnB
A few people have used AirBnB. CONTACT ME before booking in order to make sure you find a place in a good neighborhood!

When you search for “New Haven” hotels you will see cheaper rates nearby – in Milford, East Haven, West Haven, Stratford, Hamden and even other parts of New Haven. Downside is getting to campus each day and finding parking or finding a reliable ride to campus – and the expense. Please see below about parking lots in the area and factor in a daily parking rate of about $25.

Train
There is hourly Metro-North service to New Haven from Grand Central Station in New York City at Park Avenue and 42nd Street – about a 90 minute ride. For further information, call 800 638-7646 or see http://as0.mta.info/mnr/schedules/sched_form.cfm.   Amtrak service is scheduled daily from Boston or via Penn Station in New York. Take a cab from the RR station to campus.

Plane
Tweed-New Haven Airport – HVN is the closest airport and is approximately four miles from the Yale campus. It is serviced by American through Philadelphia. Taxi, bus, and car rental service is available but you really don’t need to rent a car. It’s a small airport – no crowds – and limited service.
JFK – about eighty miles to campus. You can take the Go Shuttle – https://goairportshuttle.com/ – to New Haven.
Laguardia (LGA) – is about seventy-two miles to campus, again served by the shuttle.
Newark International Airport – EWR – Newark, New Jersey — ninety-two miles to campus. Amtrak goes from the airport to New Haven. Although Newark is the furthest major airport, Amtrak (www.amtrak.com) stops at the airport and takes you right to New Haven – probably the easiest way to get here from a long distance (west coast, international). Amtrak stops in NYC but most trains are direct so carrying bags is not a huge deal. There are always cabs at the New Haven train station.
Bradley International Airport – BDL – Windsor Locks, Connecticut — fifty-three miles to campus. Some people rent a car to drive to New Haven, but again, you don’t need a car when you are here unless you decide to stay at a remote hotel location. Hy’s Limo can pick you up.

International participants: fly into JFK or Newark (EWR). Many people come early and stay in NYC and then take the commuter train into New Haven early Monday morning (Metro North RR from Grand Central Station has trains every hour). Or look for connections from the Philadelphia airport into New Haven.
