This residence is a beautiful heritage building in the heart of downtown.

    • 1 single bed with sink, fridge and shared washrooms $44 per night.
    • 1 double bed with sink, fridge and shared washrooms $64 per night.
    • 2 single beds with sink, fridge and shared washrooms $69 per night.
    • 1 single bed with private bathroom (maximum available: 22 rooms) $74 per night.

(All rates are subject to tax of approximately 19%).

Reservation will open when registration begins in early January 2018.
