We were in Brussels for one night and wanted to stay near the Grand Place. It is a block from the hotel and easy to get to by crossing the street!
We arrived from Amsterdam at the Gare Du Midi and decided to take a taxi to the Marriott. You can take the train to Gare Central which is close to the Marriott, but we decided with suitcases, to take a taxi. We were met at the hotel with a warm welcome by the entire staff. The check in was easy and our rooms were ready. There were 6 in our party and my husband and I had a king bed and our children had adjoining rooms with 2 doubles. The other two had a king bed as well. The rooms were big for Europe rooms,and it was very clean. The windows were rather small, but you could still see a little bit of a view.
We didn't eat at the restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We walked to Grand Place for our meals and were very happy. There are so many shops and cafes to choose in the area.
Our only problem we encountered was due to wi-fi. It was the only hotel that we were to stay at during our Europe vacation that didn't offer free wi-fi. I knew that and was prepared since we were only going to stay one night. However, when we arrived the front desk said we would get free wi-fi. When I double checked, they were so very nice and told us that we would have free wi-fi. (This stay was paid for with our Marriott reward points, we are Gold members) But it was a hassle and I wish we had just stuck with no wi-fi for the night. The code wouldn't work and when we went down to the front desk, they had us to go ahead and click order wi-fi and they would take it off in the morning. Well, the front desk staff the next morning said they couldn't take the charge off b/c our Gold Status had recently expired. The only reason I am writing about it, just be aware that there is a charge and it can be stressful to have it taken off. This is on me and the reason I gave them 5 stars instead of 4. I should have stuck with my plan!
We would stay here again because of the staff and the location!
