The hotel that will give us a discount is Staybridge Suites Downtown.

This comfortable hotel offers free breakfast, and is halfway between downtown Hamilton and McMaster Campus at 20 Caroline St South. That is about 10 minutes by car to the campus, and somewhat more by bus. About 40 minutes walking. The regular fee is $140 per day; we hope to negotiate $120 or less. That probably depends on numbers. The keynote speakers will be staying here.

You can opt to stay for up to 5 nights at the negotiated rate. Hamilton has stunning botanical gardens, and is about 1 hour and 15 minutes' drive to Stratford, should you wish to stay an extra day. It is also about 1 hour to Toronto.
