Revision as of 07:35, 11 August 2008


  • GO consortium meeting will be held on October 21-22, 2008 (Tues-Wed)
  • SAB meeting will be held on October 23, 2008 (Thurs)


Mont Gabriel, 45 miles north of Montreal.


  • Reserve your room by calling the hotel at 1-800-668-5253; ask for "reservations" and identify yourself as part of the Northwestern University group.

Sorry, no online registration.

  • If you participate in both the GO meeting and the SAB, you should check in on the 20th (Monday) and leave on the 24th, as we are planning full days meetings.
  • You will need to pay a 50$ deposit by credit card at the time of reservation.


  • There is a choice between three kinds of rooms (depending on availability) Tyrol ("Superior" room with balcony), Rustique (log cabin-style) (there are only about 8 rooms available of this type), and Marquise (smaller rooms). All rooms are the same price.


  • The cost per day is CAN $208.00 (~208$ USD), including dinner, accommodation, breakfast and lunch (which includes taxes and service). If you plan to miss a meal, the price will be adjusted accordingly ($17 for breakfast, $22 for lunch, $43 dinner).
  • If you want to share a room (two double or queen beds); in that case the price for the room is the same, $126, so that's $63 per person.
  • We will need to charge a small fee (10-15$ per day) for coffee breaks but this needs to be done separately.


Wireless internet will be available in the conference room and in the rooms.


  • Bien sur, the menu is French-inspired, which means quite a bit of meat. However, there will always be fish and vegetarian options. Fill in the table below or contact me if you have special requirements.


  • Fly to Montreal-Trudeau Airport (YUL). This airport used to be called Dorval, you may still see that sometimes (for example, on Google maps...).
  • The hotel offers a shuttle from the Montreal Trudeau Airport for up to 6 people for a flat rate of $140.
  • A taxi would be about 100$ (Taxis des Pays-d'en-Haut, 450-227-3000; I suggest you call in advance).
  • You can also rent a car from the airport. YUL-Gabriel Driving instructions.

To do

On site

Tennis and golf should be open; I am not sure about the pool. It's possible to go jogging on the golf course just outside the hotel.

If you want to explore Montreal

In the Laurentians
