I've booked a room at the Beaverbrook with two queen beds from Wednesday night to Sunday night, inclusive, and am looking for a roommate to share costs for the nights they stay with me.
You can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
See you there!
Book Your Hotel Room:
Reservations at the Crowne Plaza Fredericton Lord Beaverbrook Hotel can now be made online by visiting https://aws.passkey.com/e/49078864?utm_source=55344&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=274033641
Or you may still call the hotel directly at (506) 455-3371 and ask for the PWAC Conference rate; this rate is not available through the Crowne Plaza toll-free registration number.
Our home base for the 2017 PWAC Conference & AGM Thursday, May 18 through Sunday, May 21, 2017 is the elegant Lord Beaverbrook Crowne Plaza Fredericton Hotel (www.cpfredericton.com) in the heart of downtown Fredericton.
PWAC hotel rate is just $129 + tax, single or double.
Thanks for letting us know that Marie. I'll see if I can get us an online form for reservations. We were very excited about the rate as well. The rooms are beautiful!
Hi again -- I just wanted to let people know that to book the PWAC rate at the Lord Beaverbrook, you will need to phone the front desk directly: 506-455-3371. (This rate isn't available online or at the 1-800 number.)
Trudy, you did well! This is a luxury hotel at economy rates. Thanks!
The UNB option is 2 kilometres away and the St. Thomas option is 2.5 kilometres. These are university residences so I'm sure on the bus route and taxi fares shouldn't be too outrageous. I'm checking into the bus route and taxi fares and will post when I have the info.
How far from the conference site are the alternative accommodations? Walking distance, easy access via transit, or need a car? Thanks.
Alternative accommodation to hotel
Some people have asked about staying in summer campus residence as a less expensive option to staying at the hotel during the conference. Fredericton has two universities with this option. Here are the details for both:
UNB Summer Residence
The nearest to our conference site is at 20 Bailey Dr, about 2 kilometres away.
Rate info from the UNB:

That's great Kim. I'll include that people should check out/post on this forum if they are interested in sharing rooms in my next update! See you in May.
I've booked a double room, and am open to sharing if anyone wants to reduce accommodation costs.
Hi Nancy. Excited to have you join us in Fredericton in May! The hotel says it will honour the rate three days before and three days following. Let me know if you have any problems when you book.
