We do not recommend that you stay at the Northgate hotel as it has a bad reputation.  It is super cheap but also questionable – You have been forewarned.

We will be negotiating a corporate rate at both hotels and will have details about room prices shortly.  Please ask them for the corporate rate under Free Flow Dance Centre.
