What will my room look like?

We took a video so you don’t have to wonder

When traveling to conferences, many times we try to imagine how will our room look like, will we need to bring our own bedding or toiletries?

Well, we are happy to provide you with all that information. As this is a four start hotel all toiletries and bedding are included. You will need to bring your own things such as toothbrush and toothpaste and other personal items you may need.

For convenience we have included a short video for you to see what the venue and it’s rooms will look like. Please take time to watch it.
