Hotel Accommodations: 
Please be advised that due to the proximity of the event dates, all NEW RESERVATIONS, MODIFICATIONS or CANCELLATIONS will be handled directly at the GSA 2014 hotels.  Call the hotel directly and ask for in-house room reservations and identify yourself as attending GSA 2014 to request the negotiated group rate.   

See HOTEL DESCRIPTIONS for a list of hotels with phone numbers.  The Renaissance Harbourside (Phone: +1604 689 9211) and Marriott Pinnacle (Phone: +1 604 684 1128) still have availability and will honor the GSA group rate. 

As you prepare to travel to the annual meeting in Vancouver:
CHECK YOUR ARRIVAL DATE:  If you do not arrive at the hotel on your scheduled reservation check-in date the hotel will charge you a “no show” charge equal to one night's room/tax AND they will release your room for the remainder of your scheduled stay. To avoid this contact the hotel directly if you cannot arrive on your scheduled arrival date. Even if it is after 6 p.m. the day of your arrival – contact the hotel to change your reservation arrival date to avoid cancellation of your entire reservation. 

Write down and take with you the physical address of where you will be staying while in Vancouver.  You can also print your hotel acknowledgement or have it available on your phone!

Use of the housing bureau saves you (and GSA) money and provides reservation protection, flexibility, and assistance by

  • Safeguarding you from potential scams via unauthorized booking companies;
  • Guaranteeing your accommodations if a particular hotel has oversold rooms; and
  • Supporting you should any issues arise with your reservation.

The Annual Meeting hotels were chosen for the numerous benefits they offer when booked through GSA’s housing bureau, including

  • Complimentary Internet in guest rooms;
  • Friendly booking terms with no pre-payment required (you will be asked for a credit card number to hold the room; no charges will be made to that card until check out); and
  • Networking opportunities with other attendees staying at the same hotel.


Upgrade/Suite Raffle

When you reserve your room for a three-night stay or longer by 26 Aug., you will be entered in a raffle to win an upgrade (Jr. Suite or Deluxe Corner King) for your entire hotel stay. Winners will be notified via e-mail.


MCI Group Canada will send your housing confirmation number to you via e-mail. If you do not receive a confirmation or if you have questions, contact the housing bureau with “GSA Annual Meeting” in your subject line.

Changes and Cancellations

Please modify your reservation via the online system through 1 Oct.  If you prefer to have assistance, you may be charged a reprocessing fee of $50 (Canadian dollars). Canceling within 72 hours of your arrival date will incur a fee of one night’s room rate plus tax, depending your hotel’s cancellation policy. Please confirm your length of stay with the hotel when you check in. Should you decide to leave early, the hotel may charge an early departure fee.
After 1 Oct. please contact the hotel directly for all changes/cancellations


Groups may request sub-blocks of 10 or more rooms, which will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. The number of rooms and requested hotels cannot be guaranteed. Please contact the housing bureau for further information. Fees apply for sub-blocks.

Room Sharing

Use the GSA Travel & Housing Bulletin Board to share housing, airport shuttle, and/or carpool.
