The Golden Tulip Hotel

This year, we welcome you to a brand new venue. A few steps (literally) from Lyon, with its 133 rooms, large conference halls and a 4 star rating Golden Tulip Eurexpo makes an excellent choice for our convention !

The hotel is fully equipped with elevators, a bar, a wide terrace, as well as a garden where the restaurant grows their own vegetables (ed: sadly, they don’t grow limes). It is surrounded by a pretty public park where you can have your morning walks ! Sounds idyllic, isn’t it ?

Prepare yourself for good noms and comfy rooms!
The hotel even has 24/7 roomservice & secured parking!

About the hotel

The fully equipped with a nice terrace and a garden where the restaurant grows their own vegetables (ed: sadly, they don’t grow limes), the hotel is surrounded by a pretty public park where you can have your morning walks ! Sounds idyllic isn’t it ?

Rooms

Rooms meet your expectations with standard double-beds, comfortable and most of them having a pretty nice views. All rooms are for 2, no exceptions. Include Free wifi, ecological A/C and 24/24 room-service for those who need more.

N.B : As the hotel meets High Quality Environmental standard (HQE), you won’t find mini-fridges in your room as these little demons hold about 75% of energy consumption of a hotel room !

Breakfast

Yes the american-style buffet breakfast is included with the room, but have you tried your fresh croissants with it ?

Surroundings

For direct surroundings, pictures will talk by themselves.

Walking about 10 minu tes, you will meet a shopping mall where you can find your usual supplies.

Pétanque, s’il vous plait !

We almost forgot to mention there’s a Pétanque court at the hotel. Come play some “boules” games, balls and jacks are at your disposal at the reception desk. Your non-playing friends will still be able to admire your ball-playing skills since the bar terrace is right above the court.

NB : Limes are not considered as valid balls for this game.
