Accommodations for CACS/AIC AGM attendees have been arranged at the Best Western Village Park Inn. This hotel is located near the University of Calgary campus, and just across the street from McMahon Stadium (home of the CFL's reigning Grey Cup champions, the Calgary Stampeders). The hotel's address is 1804 Crowchild Trail NW.
The meeting organizers have negotiated a special room rate of $139 CDN per night (single or double occupancy) plus taxes (4% Room Tax, 3% Destination Marketing Fee, 0% PST, and 5% GST). Your room rate includes the hot breakfast buffet in the hotel restaurant each morning during your stay. The hotel provides complimentary high-speed Internet access in all guest rooms and meeting spaces. Outdoor parking is free, while underground parking is $10 per day (plus GST).
Reservations can be made by calling the hotel directly at 1-888-774-7716 or 1-403-289-0241. Please identify yourself as a "Canadian Association of Computer Science" meeting attendee. Credit card or deposit required to guarantee reservation. Cancellation policy: 48 hours prior to scheduled arrival date. Check-in time is 3:00pm. Check-out time is 12 noon.
Our room block size is limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment. Most of the rooms have one queen bed for single or double occupancy. A few of the rooms have two queen beds, in case you are bringing family along with you for the trip. Please make your reservation accordingly. (Note: extra people beyond double occupancy are charged at a rate of $10 per person per day).
The hotel cut-off deadline for making reservations is May 1, 2015. Please make sure to have your room reserved before this date. There are lots of other hotels in the "motel village", but few are as nice as the Village Park Inn, and most will have higher rates.
The CACS/AIC room rate is available from May 20 to May 24, for anyone who wants to spend some extra time in the Calgary/Banff area before or after the meeting. Banff information will be available in the hotel lobby. Hiking trail suggestions are available upon request from the local organizers.
Transportation suggestions for getting to the hotel are provided on the travel information page.
