Re: [council] Block booking for hotel rooms in New Delhi
I'll give a response a try since it is late for Glen. The number of
rooms available at the venue is extremely small. Nearly all ICANN
staff is staying off property also. The blocks of rooms available
were claimed by a few parties the day of the posting. I will check to
see the types of advice and information available and will coordinate
dissemination of additional information if needed with Glen and Diane.
I know that this is not as helpful as you would like but at least
we're in the same boat.

Let me see if I understand this correctly. The hotel information
was just posted in the last 24 hours and the venue hotel is already
booked? So we are looking at a possible situation like we
experienced in Luxembourg, one that was terrible in terms of
getting to and from the meeting venue from our various hotels. Can
anyone explain how this happened?

Subject: [council] Block booking for hotel rooms in New Delhi
Some New Delhi hotels have been posted on the website http://
The meetings will take place in the Taj Palace Hotel, Sardar Patel
Marg, Diplomatic Enclave New Delhi 110 021 http://www.tajhotels.com/
This hotel is currently sold out.
There is a possibility of having a block of rooms for the Council
members at the ITC Hotel Maurya (room rate $468 USD) Sardar Patel
Marg, Diplomatic Enclave, New Delhi
This hotel, I am told, is within walking distance of the venue
hotel, but there will also be transportation from the hotels to the
venue each day.
'Le Méridien' (room rate $379 USD) 8, Windsor Palace, Janpath New
Delhi 110001 rkhan@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx http://www.hotels-new-
has also been indicated as a good hotel.
Could you please give me an idea, off the Council list to:
<gnso.secretariat@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> if you would like to be included
in a block booking by COB Central European Time (CET) tomorrow,
Friday 21 December, as available space is going fast. Travel dates
are not necessary for the deadline tomorrow.
Thank you very much.
