The conference hotel is the Fairmont Chateau Laurier. All the sessions, the Continental breakfasts, the annual lunch, and the Thursday and Saturday receptions will be held there. It’s a grand old hotel, and it should be fun. We have negotiated what is for this hotel a remarkably cheap rate of Canadian $189 for a basic double room. To obtain the rate you should telephone 1-800-441-1414 or 506-863-6310 and indicate that you are booking for the ASLH Annual Meeting. Rooms for the meeting may also be booked through a special website that the hotel has arranged. (Do not use the hotel’s regular website; you won’t be able to get the special rate that way.) In order to obtain the rate you must book before October 12. Also, all Canadian hotel rates (including those listed above and below) are subject to an additional tax of 15%.
A variety of bed & breakfast inns are available, with rates ranging from a low of $70 to prices higher than our rate at the Chateau Laurier. Look for locations that are close to Parliament Hill and the ByWard Market. For details on bed and breakfast accommodations, see www.bedsandbreakfasts.ca/ottawa.htm.
