Moreover, the Hilton has rooms listed on their website (linked from the 
conference page) for as low as CDN$189 a night for double occupancy, 
advance purchase. Even their "no restrictions" rate is $5 less than the 
negotiated conference rate. I wonder if it might not be possible to 
request the conference rate be reduced?
