Well, there are 434 sleeping room in the Conrad Seoul according to
their web site so I expect that the 400 in the IETF block were
essentially all the ordinary rooms and all at the IETF rate while the
remaining 34 are all larger/special rooms at higher rates. The other
participating hotels have reasonable rates and seem fairly close.

Thanks,
Donald
