We have negotiated special hotel pricing for serving members and Alumni at the Radisson Blu ( 249 Queen’s Quay West, Toronto, ON M5J 2N5) just a few minutes from HMCS YORK. There are a limited number of rooms in the booking and are offered on a first come, first served basis. Once the reserved booking is full, rooms will resort back to regular pricing. Those that contact the hotel to reserve their room should give, “HMCS YORK Centennial Celebration Weekend” as the event code. You may call 1-437-886-9667, or email frontdesk@radissonblutoronto.com.
