PHSC Symposium 2019

Sheraton Hamilton Hotel, July 18-21 2019

Not just another stamp show!

The main venue for the PHSC Symposium 2019 is the Hamilton Sheraton Hotel, located at 116 King Street West in Hamilton. If traveling by car, the hotel is a short distance from Highway 403. Please note that King Street is a one-way street. There is very convenient parking available underground at the hotel, which you can access on King Street.

If you are arriving by air at Toronto Pearson International Airport, there are a variety of ways to get to Hamilton. Rental cars are of course available, but please note that there is a daily parking charge at the Hamilton Sheraton Hotel that is not included in the room rate. There is an inexpensive Express GO bus that departs Pearson for Hamilton every hour near the half hour. Here are direct links to schedules:

GO Bus 40: Pearson to Hamilton

GO Bus 40: Hamilton to Pearson

Alternatively, a pdf of the schedule is available. The GO Transit centre at Pearson is located on the lower level, Terminal 1. The arrival destination in Hamilton is the Hamilton GO Centre, near Hunter and James Streets. This is a few blocks from the hotel, which could be reached on foot or by taxi (see the map above, on which the GO Station appears as a blue train icon).

There is also GO Train service from Toronto Union Station to the Hamilton GO Centre. Use the Lakeshore West line: eastbound, westbound.

If arriving by car, approach Hamilton from Highway 403 and take the Main Street exit. Merge on to Main Street West, follow it 1.9 km to Hughson St. Turn left on to Hughson and then left on King Street. The hotel and parking will be on your right.
