Hotels

We have secured a limited number of rooms with favourable pricing at the following hotels. We recommend that you book a hotel as soon as you decide that you are coming to the PostgreSQL Development Conference. There are other conferences taking place in Vancouver at the same time and we expect hotel prices to rise as we get closer to the conference date.

Sutton Place Hotel

The Sutton Place Hotel at 845 Burrard Street is offering a rate of $319(CAD) plus taxes and fees for a renovated room with 1 king sized bed. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the conference venue. This is a very good rate for downtown Vancouver and we expect the block of rooms at this rate to sell out quickly.
