Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel

Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel is the perfect destination for both work and play. It offers opportunities to explore the best of the city.

As the designated conference hotel, the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel has reserved a block of rooms for delegates. The special room rate for the conference is $270 plus taxes per night for a standard room or double room. The special rate is only available until 5 p.m. on Friday, November 3, until the room block has been filled. Reservations can still be made after November 4 but room rates will vary and are subject to availability.

Please book in advance. If booking on behalf of a group, please ensure a guest’s name is assigned to the room and only reserve needed rooms. Unlike in the past, the hotel will not be creating sub-blocks for colleges to hold rooms. Therefore, the colleges will have to book directly into the main block on a first-come, first-serve basis.

To make a hotel reservation, please call the reservations office by dialing 1-888-627-7175 and reference the Higher Education Summit or Colleges Ontario.
