Hotels in Halifax

Participants are advised to book their accommodation early as there are other conferences in Halifax at that time. There is a sufficient number of hotel rooms in all price categories, but hotels tend to have high occupancy rates (historically, hotels are running at 94% occupied this time of year).

Hotel Block Bookings — block bookings have been made at three hotels to ensure room availability. Please check the expiration date of the block bookings below. We cannot guarantee that you will be able to find a hotel room after this date.

Independent Hotel Reservations — most hotels offer a refundable reservation option, meaning you may reserve a refundable room now and you will have up until 24-48 hours before the conference to cancel your reservation without penalty.

We strongly recommend reserving a hotel room now and canceling it later if you are unable to make it.

The downtown Halifax core is a small area and all locations are within walking distance.
