This is helpful to know.  As pointed out before, this year is the first
year we're working with the Brussels Booking Desk to negotiate discounts
for visitors.  Any comments (positive or negative) are welcome.

Note that the difference between 115EUR and 107EUR sounds a lot like
city tax.  I would be interested to know if the rate you  were quoted
actually includes that.  Some hotels like to charge it separately (you
can guess how I feel about that practice).
