In preparation for the Forum, AWID has reserved blocks of rooms at 15 Cape Town hotels from November 13th-18th, 2008. AWID has negotiated special rates for Forum delegates at all of these hotels, with prices ranging from approximately $56 USD to $150 USD per person, based on double occupancy ($75-$260 based on single occupancy). Please note that the hotel rate includes breakfast and all applicable taxes.
We recognize that, unfortunately, due to the high volume of tourists and international events that occur in Cape Town, hotel prices are high. The hotels AWID offers were selected based on their proximity to the conference venue, the safety of the neighborhoods, and the capacity of the hotel to accommodate large group reservations.
Important clarification: A double room is for two people who wish to share a room and a double bed (for couples), while a twin room is for two people sharing a room but not sharing beds (ie, for roommates, not couples)
Please note* For delegates not staying within walking distance from the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), shuttle busses will be available to transport you to and from the CTICC
