Hotels Near the Dance Centre
It is the responsibility of the participants at the 2013 WDA-Americas Conference & Festival to locate, reserve, and purchase lodging if they are visiting Vancouver. Please note that the July and August months are considered “prime time” for lodging establishments and rates may be in the upper annual range. Making arrangements and reserving your accommodations early will guarantee your rate when you arrive! Please make sure to take your time investigating your options. Public Transit is well established in the Vancouver Metro, so know that you can search outside the direct area of the Dance Centre when looking for lodging.
The deadline to reserve a room at the group rate has passed and the unreserved rooms have been released to the public. If you are still interested in a room at the Holiday Inn, please contact their representative Angela zan den Byllaardt at 604-623-6894 and tell her you are with WDA-A and the Dance Centre. There may be discounts available for those staying several days. Note that the tail end weekend of our event is a holiday weekend in BC and finding a room may be difficult, so book early!

WDA-Americas has negotiated with the Holiday Inn located just three blocks away and around the corner from the Dance Centre for a reduced rate during this prime rate time. Participants that register for the conference & festival can rent a Two Double Bedded Room (sleeps 4) or a King Bed Room (sleeps 2) for a reduced rate of $159/night Canadian Funds, plus applicable taxes/fees. Some of the rooms may also have a pull-out couch which can accommodate additional sleepers (limited rooms available by request on a first reserved basis.) This reduced rate is available from July 26 – August 8 for participants in case they wish to come to Vancouver early or stay after the conference & festival.
Note that there are a limited number of rooms on hold for WDA-Americas participants who will receive this discount (20 King Rooms and 20 Two Double Bedded Rooms.) Participants that have registered for the conference will receive a promotional code to use when they call to reserve a room which will be valid until all the available rooms have been reserved. On June 15 (45 days before the conference & festival) 50% of the remaining rooms that have not been reserved will be released and become unavailable. On June 29, 2013 all remaining rooms that have not been reserved will be released and the promotional discount will become unavailable to participants. Reserve your room early to ensure you get this discounted rate! The promotional code will be emailed to participants within 1 week of registration for the conference & festival.
