Room Rates (Standard Guest Room): $234 + applicable taxes and fees

We are offering three hotel options for conference attendees, based on availability. The JW Marriott Parq & The DOUGLAS are connected and both are available for conference attendees at the same price. The two hotels share the same reservation database which promises a seamless experience for guests at either property. Please note the OPUS offers a luxury chauffeur drop-off service within the downtown core and is a 7 minute walk (approx.) to the conference.

UPDATE: The JW Marriott Parq, The DOUGLAS and the OPUS Vancouver are at full capacity.

As attendees shift their arrival and departure dates, rooms at the JW Marriott Parq and The Douglas may become available in the future. Attendees can continue to call the JW Marriott Parq (1-888-236-2427) and The Douglas (604-676-0889) to see if any rooms are available. Since it is after the January 14 deadline, there may be rooms available at the hotels, but they will no longer be available at the conference rate.

Please contact Natalie Alfano natalie.alfano@cairp.ca if you have any questions regarding the hotels.
