    Hotel FAQs

    What are the hotels like?

    Located right on the waterfront, the Westin Harbour Castle stands prominently on the Toronto skyline and boasts breathtaking views of the city and Lake Ontario. A contemporary-style, pristine venue that has ample space for all sorts of events, it’s also a convenient location for all major travel routes and easy to find.
    The Strathcona Hotel is a cozy, compact option for those looking for an affordable stay, located just minutes away from Union Station and a short walk to Furnal Equinox’s venue. Its ultra-modern styling is complimented by the generous dining and amenity options all around the area.

    How do I get there?

    What’s there to do around?

    With a plethora of sights and events to see – from the wondrous aquatic experiences at Ripley’s Aquarium to the daunting heights of the CN Tower, the cultural events at the Harbourfront Centre to sporting venues including the Hockey Hall of Fame, downtown Toronto is a playground filled with adventure for every type of attendee.

    What dining/nightlife options are available?

    The surrounding Harbourfront area has no shortage of dining and nightlife, and all within a few minutes’ walk from the Westin and The Strathcona. From affordable bites such as Tim Horton’s and Subway to rockstar-level cuisines in and around the hotels, you’ll never be without options. There’s also a pretty cool pub called “The Fox” just two minutes away from the Westin – they’ve got some great affordable fare. And for our coffee lovers, there’s a Tim Hortons across from each hotel.

    Is smoking/vaping allowed?

    There is absolutely no smoking or vaping allowed in hotel/convention spaces unless designated by the venue. Please respect and abide by these rules.

    Why is there a one-night deposit now required for the Westin?

    We want to ensure that rooms in our hotel block are guaranteed. This not only helps the convention plan accordingly for the volume of attendees, but provides more security in reserving your room for an epic convention. Your credit card will be charged a one-night-stay upon time of reservation, which is fully refundable up to 72 hours before your check-in time.
    (Please note: Visa/MC Online Debit cards are acceptable; however, we do NOT recommend using them.)

    I can’t book a room! Have they all sold out?

    Our rooms sell as fast as rock concert tickets do, so make sure you get yours as soon as possible! If there are no available rooms appearing through our booking partner, wait a few days before trying again – we might just need to snag a few more rooms for our convention block. Alternatively, you can also try looking at ConRoomies for potential room shares and ride shares!

    If you have any further questions about our venue, please e-mail us at info@furnalequinox.com and we’ll get back to you!
