We will be using the Chelsea Hotel in downtown Toronto. This page will include information on how to book so conference attendees receive their free night and have access to our special rate.


Our preferred rate block is now the maximum: it extends three days before and three days after our dates of July 20-22. NECTAR participants can book at our conference rate within the range of the night of July 17 through to the night of July 24 (e.g. check out July 25) on a first come basis. 

Anything outside of those dates requires a separate reservation at the going rate; but a room change would not be required, as long as the entire stay was booked all at once.

How to book accommodation at NECTAR rates

Reserve before June 20, 2022. After the cutoff date of June 20, the conference rate is subject to availability.

Do not book your NECTAR conference accommodations at the Chelsea using any other platform (e.g. Expedia). Please use the booking instructions shown below.
