The Pacific Hotel is giving us a special rate so you will have to specify "ECHO Forum" in the subject line to receive the ECHO rate which is 
       Single room (including breakfast): 35,000 CFA/night
       Double room (including breakfast): 45,000 CFA/night

Please be aware that there is a pool at the Pacific Hotel so feel free to bring your swimming suit.  The Pacific Hotel also provides free wireless internet.

Please note that no childcare facilities or activities will be provided.

Other hotels, guest houses and housing arrangements exist in Ouagadougou.  If you chose to stay elsewhere, ECHO will NOT be responsible for your transportation to/from the Pacific Hotel.


In an effort to keep the costs of this forum down, breakfast and evening meals will not be included as a part of this package.  There will be a coffee break each morning so this might compensate for the breakfast.  The Pacific Hotel is located near Avenue du Dr Kwame N'Krumah which has a number of dining options available to you within walking distance.  A map of restaurants in the area will be made available to you at the forum.  A closing banquet, which is covered in your registration costs, will be offered on Thursday evening immediately following the closing ceremonies.
