We have been working hard over the last 24 hours to ensure hotel rooms are available at Furnal Equinox 2013. After numerous discussions with staff at the Sheraton Toronto Airport, we are able to announce the following:
- There are limited rooms available on Friday and Saturday night, including a small selection of rooms with two queen beds. More rooms with a king-size bed are available.
Once those rooms sell out, there will be no further rooms available at the con block rate of $119 per night. Some others may go up for sale, but they will be at a higher price.
- There are no rooms available on Sunday night. You may be able to get rooms with a king bed online on Expedia or other sites, but you will pay a lot more money for doing so — the cheapest rate we found was $180 per night. The hotel is experiencing some high demand that evening, and not just from us!
We recommend that attendees consider booking or changing your reservation to a king size room if it would meet your needs. Most of the king rooms contain sofabeds, and for those that don't, the hotel will provide cots at no charge. If you can, we also recommend setting Sunday as your checkout day when you book (otherwise, the hotel reservation system will report no rooms available).
Our room block with the Sheraton closes on February 14, 2013 at 5:00 pm. After that point, hotel rooms will only be available through general sale.
If you are unable to book a room at the Sheraton before the block closes on February 14, please e-mail email@example.com as soon as possible and we will provide you with further recommendations.
We'll continue to post updates as we get more information over the next week and a half.
