As the designated conference hotel, the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel has reserved a block of rooms for delegates. The room rate for guests is $219 plus taxes per night for a standard room or double room. This special rate is only available until 5 p.m. on Monday, November 5, or until the room block has been filled. You may still make a reservation after November 5 but room rates will vary and are subject to availability.

Please book your rooms in advance. If you are booking on behalf of a group, please ensure you assign a guest’s name to the room and only reserve the amount you need. The hotel will not be creating sub-blocks for colleges to hold rooms. Therefore, colleges will have to book directly into the main block on a first-come-first-serve basis.

If you would like 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 or group ID 2K022AA. You may also reserve online by visiting https://www.starwoodmeeting.com/Book/2K02AA.
