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

Additional meal rates

Parking information & rates

The underground parking garage (6-foot height restriction for vehicles) offers daily and monthly rates. Security staff patrol the garage on a regular basis. There is elevator access from all garage levels to the main lobby. The entrance to the parking garage is located on the North-West corner of the building, on the East side of Chestnut Street. 

Rates are subject to change without notice. Please check with the Front Desk to confirm the most up-to-date information.
