We were only stopping off for the night in Ghent and had a reservation at the Sandton Reylof, On arrival alas they had overbooked. After several hours driving I was simply too tired to complain but the hotel had instead reserved us a very nice room at the Marriott. It was a great relief to arrive at the Marriott. We don't really know Ghent that well and entered via the modern entrance on the carpark side of the building. We were very pleasantly surprised. The atrium provides a nice wow factor. The staff were very helpful, welcoming and professional. We had been allocated a Suite and the room was very comfortable, very quiet with a great bed. We had a couple of drinks and ate at the bar. The Club sandwich was great, the frites to die for. It was only when we went for a stroll and left via the rear of the hotel that we realised how wonderful the location was. You walk right out on to the water into the heart of Ghent. I'm only sorry I didn't book at the Marriot first. Arriving at night you don't realise how cleverly shoe-horned into the area the hotel is. The facade is traditional and in-keeping with the wonderful architecture around but inside you are surprised by modern airy spaces, curving glass structures and strong modern architectural lines. We'll certainly be back. Alas it was just a stop off with a late check-in so we didn't get a chance to use all of the facilities but I'm sure they would be very good.
