Hotel Booking Information:
-Reservations opened on Monday July 16, 2018 at 11am, at a room rate of $170 plus taxes, which will be honored until the room block fills up, or November 13, 2018 – whichever occurs first.  As of October 17, the room block is at 100% so there are no more rooms available at the above rate.  There are rooms available at current rates however.  Contact the hotel directly to inquire.
-Guests are able to make their own reservations by calling in toll free at 1-888-627-7175 and stating that they are part of the Irish Dance Teachers Association of Canada or simply quoting the group code ‘0L04AA’ (zero L zero 4AA).
-To book online, use this link: https://www.starwoodmeeting.com/Book/0L04AA
-One night’s rate will be taken as a non-refundable deposit.
-There is no mandate to stay at this hotel, however we need to maximize reservations to benefit from discounts and rebates to off-set the high costs of running this event in a top downtown hotel and to afford and international panel of judges and musicians, among other costs.  Thank you for supporting the event by booking out the host hotel.
