Are you travelling in from out of town and looking for accommodations? 
Unfortunately, we could not set a block of rooms aside at a local hotel as we had hoped, but both the  Hotel Novotel Toronto Centre (45 the Esplanade) and the Strathcona Hotel (60 York St.) have offered us a discount. This discount is applied to limited rooms. Please book as soon as possible. Both of these hotels are a short walk from Union Station and about a 10 minute drive to the Argonaut Rowing Club.
To book with Novotel: Please call 416-367-8900, ask for Yvonne. If she is not available, please tell the agent that you are booking a room under the business rate with ROWONTARIO. They said that the rooms at this rate may fill quickly, so the sooner the better.
To book with Strathcona: Please call 416-363-3321 and ask for the I Love Strathcona (ILS) rate.
If you do choose to go with a hotel closer to the Argonaut Rowing Club, please feel free to email Ereka for assistance.
