Accommodations

This year’s Canadian Respiratory Conference (CRC) will be held in Niagara Falls, Ontario, at the Sheraton On The Falls hotel. We have negotiated special guest room rates at the Sheraton On The Falls and at the Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls-Fallsview.

Staying at our host properties facilitates networking for our delegates and offers them quick access to meeting and conference venues. Most importantly, choosing our host hotels supports the CTS. In order to provide the meeting space and rooms needed to hold the CRC and affiliated meetings, the CTS makes commitments years in advance on behalf of our delegates. Help CTS avoid costly penalties and extra costs by booking within our room blocks!

Niagara Falls is a very popular destination. We are expecting our room blocks to fill before our cut-off date. We encourage you to book early! The cut-off date to reserve a room in our group blocks is Friday, March 13, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. local time at the host hotels. After the cut-off date, it is at the hotels’ discretion whether to accept additional reservations, which will be subject to prevailing rates and availability.

The negotiated guest room rates for the CRC 2020 will be offered for three days prior and three days after the conference dates, subject to availability. Guest room rates are based on single or double occupancy; triple and quadruple accommodation when available is at an additional rate of $25 per person. Children under the age of 18 stay free in the room with an adult, and rollaway beds are available at an additional rate of $25 each. Rates are quoted in Canadian funds and are subject to a $2 per night Transient Accommodation Tax (TAT) and a 5.9% Promotion Fee (PF). The room rate, TAT and PF are subject to 13% Harmonized Sales Tax (HST).
