All members of At-Large who are travelling to Paris will be staying at:

Novotel Paris Gare Montparnasse
17 rue du Cotentin
75015 Paris

Tel (+33)1/53912375
Fax (+33)1/53912376 http://www.novotel.com/fichehotel/fr/nov/5060/fiche_hotel.shtml

ICANN will pay the room and tax only. You should not be asked for a credit card when you check in, however, any incidentals that you accrue will be your responsibility and you will need to pay those upon checkout. .

Note that hotel room and tax paid by ICANN covers the nights of 21 - 26 June only unless you have made arrangements to the contrary with ICANN staff in advance. You are welcome to stay before and after, but the costs of doing so will be paid by you when you check out of the hotel.

Access to internet from your room is included in your room charge. Breakfast is also included.


To/From the Airport and the Hotel

To/From the Host Hotel

There are four basic ways to get from the airport to Le Meridien.

Train – Air France Bus – Shuttle – Taxi.

The most expensive is a taxi – it will run approximately 60 Euros depending on the traffic.

The easiest transportation solution is to take the coach: Air France offers a coach service between Charles de Gaulle and Gare Montparnasse – just in front of the Meridien Montparnasse (and a short walk from the Novotel. Line 4 will cost 14 euros single and 22 euros return. The bus does make several stops in the airport.

For the Metro: The fastest route is to take the RER B train to central Paris. Montparnasse Bienvenue is on Metro lines 4, 6, 12 and 13. As such it can be accessed from the following RER B stations: Gare du Nord, Chatelet and Denfert-Rochereau. The first two stations are main hubs so it may be faster and simpler to change at Denfert.



Breakfast: Is included in your room charge and is served 06:30 - 09:30 daily in 'The Restaurant'
Lunch: Attendees are on their own for lunch.

Dinner: Attendees are on their own for dinner except where otherwise organised and specifically announced. There are currently no At-Large-specific dinners hosted by ICANN planned.


Note that all participants to the ICANN meeting are kindly requested to register themselves - the link to do so is: http://par.icann.org/en/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=6



The amount of the per diem for Paris is USD150.00. This will be paid by wire transfer prior to the meeting. If you prefer another form of payment please arrange with Stacy Hoffberg.

There has been a revision to the per diem rate which will now be $150 USD per day. The reason for this revision is the following:

·We have negotiated with the Novotel to include breakfast which is served daily from 06:30 – 09:30 in ‘The Restaurant’

·We have negotiated with the Novotel to include internet in your hotel room


Although the per diem is $150 USD we recognize that your account may be in a different currency. Therefore please advise the currency you desire for your per diem to be transferred in.


Per diems will not be transferred until I receive your response. Send your response to stacy.hoffberg@icann.org.
