IEEE 802 has made a special arrangement with Manotel Group’s 6 business class hotels in downtown Geneva to provide rooms with special rates for IEEE 802 Plenary Session attendees.  Each Manotel hotel provides guaranteed reservations via major credit card on a special IEEE-802 webpage with NO-penalty for reservation cancellation requests received more than 7-days (≥168 hours) in advance of arrival date & time, free guestroom internet, business traveler amenities, and optional breakfast and restaurant services.  They are all 4 and 3-star properties, and each has its own unique style that allows for a variety of guest preferences.  We recommend that you visit our website to see the different features, prices, and their convenient locations to make your selection, and then book online as soon as possible to ensure you get your preference.  The number of rooms available is limited so please book early.  You can always cancel if your plans change but once our block is sold out, no more rooms may be available.  All of the Manotel hotels have highest customer ratings for comfort, convenience, and service.  They are a very safe choice for those not familiar with Geneva.  Please use the following Link to reach the IEEE 802 reservation site and book your Manotel reservation:
