I could either drive up early on Friday or come Thursday in the afternoon. If we plan something like that, I think it would be best to stay in the same hotel with all who are coming.

Well, not preferred, but I stayed in Hotel Beau Site (http://www.beausitebrussels.com/home.htm) before and quite liked it.

It seems to be nicely in between the FOSDEM venue:

and the "Grote Markt" which is the center of town:

... and to the Friday Night beer Event:

I don't know it the hotel has a conference room or a room that could function as one. Also the site says wifi is available in *selected* rooms.

Cheers,
