The ISNV Symposium and Conference on HIV in the Central Nervous System will be held at the Omni King Edward Hotel in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This is also the site of the OHTN meeting HIV Endgame: Closing the Gaps in the Care Cascade. Located in downtown Toronto, the Omni King Edward Hotel is Toronto’s first luxury hotel and has long been the first choice of Toronto’s elite, as well as convention goers, political figures, and business travelers.

Built in 1903, the hotel combines elegant accommodations with a recent $40 million renovation that offers 21st century comfort and amenities. The hotel is conveniently located near the financial, entertainment, and shopping districts, and close to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Sony Centre, The Distillery District, Eaton Centre, and the St. Lawrence Farmers Market. The hotel includes two restaurants – Victoria’s Restaurant and the Consort Bar – that feature local, seasonal ingredients combined with classic cooking methods. The area around the hotel also offers a variety of fast and not-so-fast dining options.

Rooms are no longer available at the exclusive meeting rate of $229 (CAD) per night. However, rooms may still be available at standard, non-negotiated rates. Room reservations can be secured by phone or through the online reservation system:
