Accommodation Guide for IACS3 2018, Toronto

Please find below a collection of local hotel recommendations and lodging information. The options in the main table are associated with the numbered map above for ease of reference. Each of the urls included in the main table is coded for the date ranges of July 12-15 -- please adjust these to your needs based on the length of your preferred stay. Each tinyurl will lead you to a Google Search option where you can see filtered rates through best rate crawlers such as,, and for the best deals.

Note: We recommend that all IACS3 guests book their hotels/accommodations as soon as possible due to a very active July travel season in downtown Toronto, making it likely that room rates will rapidly (and precipitously) increase during the weekend of our conference.
