I am at Le Meridien as well. I got a similar rate. Phil is right that it is pre-pay, but I prefer the close proximity. The Board and staff are likely to be in one of two hotels, the Le Meridien being one, and sorry, I can't remember the other, but it is very close by.

i just booked into Le Meridien.  #5-rated on TripAdvisor -- right across from the venue -- $160/night through Orbitz.  what's not to like?

How about the Marriott (Rue Auguste Orts 3-7/Grand Place) or the Renaissance (Rue du Parnasse 19)? -- both have rates that are substantially lower than the Meridien's lowest (which requires full advance payment, non-refundable for a low rate) and that incur no penalty for cancelation or date changes prior to date of reservation -- it appears from looking at the map that they are fairly close to the meeting venue, but I would like your feedback. Thanks.

The Square Meeting Centre is a refurbished venue in central Brussels on the Mont des Arts.
It is very well served by many hotels in various price categories.
In the top price category:
Le Meridien (comfortable if a tad austere)

A little further away but still an easy walk to the conference venue is a wonderful and pricy boutique hotel:
And the Radisson SAS is fab and reasonable close.

Very nearby is the 4 star but comfortable
Royal Windsor
Next door to the Meridien are three cheaper Hotels:
Best Western Carrefour d L'europe
Ibis Grande Place (Note there are other Ibis in Brussels).
If these hotels book up then look at alternatives towards the centre (Grande Place / Bld Anspach)
Avoid a postcode that is not 1000.
The Brussels Hilton(s) are a bit far from the venue.
The Sheraton and Crowne Plaza at Place Rogier are also a bit far.
PS Must see Tourist info will be provided nearer the date !
