Dear ISH Colleagues,
   Please see the information below about the Room, Meal, and Parking rates for the Toronto meeting.
NOTE: Here’s<> a link to the Chestnut Centre Residences for information purposes. But attendees should probably book through the conference website.
TAXES: Our best understanding of the tax rate is: 13% (national and provincial sales taxes combined), plus 4% (accommodation tax, varies between provinces) plus .5% Destination Marketing fee. [It is likely that the .5% might be removed from the bill if you ask (as it's a fee not a tax, no obligation to collect) but might also not (the hotel is entitled to charge it).]
Room rates (all rooms have a private ensuite washroom)
U of T Departmental Rate

  *   Double Room (for two people, two double-sized beds in the room): $179.80+tax/night

  *   Rates include breakfast, served in the Dining Hall

     *   A take-away bagged lunch can be provided for a fee, for a group of any size, with a minimum of 2 weeks’ advance notice: $18.50+tax/person
  *   Dinner is available for a fee, and is served daily in the Dining Hall:
