“Great location, Super friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

If you want to be right in the middle of everything in beautiful downtown Ghent then this is the place to be. The staff is exceptionally friendly and service-oriented. The hotel ambiance is great with the traditional front facing the canal and the newer building facing away from the canal. The rooms and bathrooms are of a good size and well appointed. The reception area opens into a large atrium with a bar and lots of areas to sit and relax. The breakfast rooms are on the smaller and cozier side, facing the canal, and giving the guest a nice view of the old town and canal. The breakfast is pretty basic and would do well with an upgrade. Parking is available for a fee inside the parking garage of the hotel or also close by in one of Ghent's parking garages. Wifi is free and working great in the public areas and rooms. Valerie was one of the staff members who went out of her way to make us welcome right from the start. We loved our stay in Ghent and this is definitely also thanks to our pleasant stay at this hotel.

Location as you can guess is superb, the hotel itself is very welcoming ,smart and very clean and comfortable room.We had breakfast , which was better than most, and cocktails in the atrium style lounge. . We stayed here at the beginning of a 10 day tour of France ,Belgium , Luxembourg and Germany and it stood up well to the others. Only niggle , the shower wets the floor a bit, but that in 4 out of 6 of the hotels. Would recommend it.

I rate a hotel by the quality of the nights sleep.......and this Hotel is immaculate. Great bed really comfortable......but what makes this Hotel are the staff. Pride of Ghent - I don't know but Ghent should be proud of ALL the staff at The Marriott. Genuine Smiling faces, cheerful attitude and they all cannot have been more helpful.
It doesn't matter if they are behind the front desk, or housekeeping staff around the hotel, all of you take a bow.

You must book a river facing room! Large spacious rooms. Fantastic front desk service on arrival. We were advised on the layout of the town and what to see and do, Awesome surrounds and you don't really need a car!
Fantastic restaurant in hotel as well across the river.

What a joy it was to stay here. First the location could not have been better. The room was well appointed and very Clean.. The beds were extremely comfortable but the best thing about this hotel was the STAFF.. So helpful polite and spoke perfect English. They made our stay a highlight in Ghent especially Davey. This is by far the best Marriott I have ever stayed at! I can't recommend this hotel enough.

This was my first visit to this hotel. Very modern with good sized rooms. What made this hotel exceptional in my opinion was its location. The Marriott is located in the historic centre of Ghent - immediately adjacent to the central plaza and canals. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars within a few hundred metres - and the pancakes are to die for !!! If you are self-driving then the hotel has its own underground car par, but do not use the Garmin or TomTom Satnav location default address - this directs you through a pedestrian precinct with restricted vehicle access and you could get fined. Navigate to the end of Drabstraat instead. The car park entrance will be on your right. Whether on business or pleasure I'd definitely endorse consideration of the Ghent Marriott.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the canal end of the hotel have great views on to the old town and local water ways.

First time to Ghent- chose the hotel was we could get 2 adults and 2 children in one room. Lovely facade to the hotel - easy parking and perfect location. The staff were excellent and the hotel was clean, comfortable and just what we needed.
