Room Rates (per night)

Our preferred rate is $140.00 a night (regularly $199!)…and that rate will be offered 3 days prior and after the conference. We recommend booking early as this hotel is not as large as last years Toronto Sheraton and it will book up fast! Free Wifi Available.

We encourage members to join the Marriott’s Rewards program prior to booking in order to enjoy free wifi in your hotel room, along with other member benefits.
