Special room rate offer for TitanCon 2012 members

Days Hotel

Days Hotel is located just a short walk from our venue at the Europa Hotel, actually it's the second closest place to stay outside of the Europa itself and a good deal cheaper than the Europa or the Fitzwilliam. The room rates are higher now than they were in 2011 and almost double what they were when I first stayed here two years ago, but rising prices appears to be a trend in hotels across the city anyway so despite the price we confidently predict that Days will be the hotel of choice for most TitanCon attendees.

We are pleased to announce that we have arranged a special room rate offer for TitanCon 2012 members. Days are holding 25 rooms for us from 21st September for 2 nights - 15 twin rooms and 10 double rooms. The rates are:

Rather than post the booking codes on a public website we will be including the details for how to take up this offer in your membership confirmation email.

Please note that the TitanCon offer rate includes breakfast and the facility to cancel your booking without charge if you should need to. The standard hotel rate for these options is £65.95 per night single occupancy and £72.90 double occupancy.

I have stayed here the past two years and have been pleasantly surprised by how good the rooms are, for the price I had been expecting a smaller room and lower quality service. I would not hesitate to stay here again and I probably will come September. Just remember to put your keycard in the slot by the door to switch the lights on as SamanthaofTarth found out!

Standard room rates start from £51.67 per night (advance online purchase, no cancellations).
