G-Anime has a suggestion for you!
We have a partnership with the Four Point Sheraton is linked to the Palais des Congrès by a sky bridge that goes through the Maison du Citoyen, which means you don’t even have to take a single step outside during the cold winter!
Furthermore, we have negotiated a special rate for all of you! The Sheraton Four-Points is offering G-Anime participants a room at 155$ with 2 beds.
This is really the best quality-price you can find around, but hurry up, the offer is valid for a limited time.
