Hello all,

Half a dozen people have contacted me individually to ask about hotels. Let me consolidate in one reply to the list, since this seems a topic of general interest.

I do not yet know precisely where the meeting will be yet as we are talking with a potential host with many buildings in Brussels. I am going to hold off on booking a hotel room for a few more weeks. There will be no "conference hotel" and you are free to stay where you like. For those working for companies with travel offices, you may have guidance to follow from them. Once I have a better understanding of which location we are looking at, I will post to the mailing list with where I'm going to stay and details of any options I looked into. No point all of us doing the same work.

If you are looking to reserve a hotel now anyway, the best advice I've heard is to pick something near the railway. For those with modest travel budgets, the Ibis chain is popular. I have not stayed in the Brussels Ibis, but the Leuven Ibis was fine. Nothing at all fancy, but clean, organized, and the wifi worked. For those with more generous expense accounts, most of the American brands are upscale, moreso than in the US, with price tags to match. I had a good experience at the Radisson Blu. As a rule the hotels in Brussels will have English speakers on staff. I am told that it is hard to go wrong.

More as I know more.
