“Perfect central location to everything”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

After completing a week Bike and Barge trip from Holland to Belgium, we spent two days in Ghent. The Marriott was a perfect location... right on the canal. Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean. Ooooo... loved that the tub that was long enough to really stretch out fully in. Our room (#430) faced inwards to the hotel atrium. The bad was that there was no outside view.. The good was that it was very quiet and therefore easy to sleep. Our room didn't include breakfast but the local patisserie shops make it very easy to pass up the hotel fare.

After reading the trip advisor reviews, i booked this hotel thinking it would be good. We were given a room whose only window looked onto the main passage of the hotel, so if our curtains were open at any time everybody walking by could look into our room. It was terrible. This room should be used as a store room, not a room for paying guests.

Very nice hotel, in the perfect location to walk around the beautiful city of Ghent. Literally right on the canal, check-in was fast and easy. Our room was large and clean. Parking was very convenient with their underground parking garage.

We were in Ghent for a company conference. The hotel has a beautiful facade built from three old building which have been retained for the old world feel. Our stay in the city was made very enjoyable by the hotel. They were very helpful in providing us with directions to the places of interest. The hotel was clean and comfortable and opens out to the wonderful walks by the canal. Truly memorable stay.

Only complaint would be our suite was not ready on our arrival at around 3 pm and asked to wait in the bar for a short while.Would have been nice if the drinks were complimentry as we were paying 250 Euros per night without breakfast,but no after a short wait of around 45 minutes we booked in and I returned to the bar to book the drinks to our room.
Apart from that a very nice clean hotel.
One other thing the hotel restaurant is closed on Sundays.

As a travel agent, I use trip advisor a lot, but some must be read with a pinch of salt. I hope my views will help people make a decisive decision if the hotel is ideal for their individual needs.
Getting to the hotel from Ghent railway station - sound advise take a taxi. It is a 10 minute drive from the hotel.
Having spent 2 nights in Marriott Ghent - location is PERFECT.. right there by the river boat tours and located by all the main attractions. If you enjoy history and architecture - this town is packed with it all. Restaurants over the canal are nice but very pricey - venture into Patershol area (10 minute walk) where the locals tent to dine out. Lesson learn't, book a dining time at the restaurant that you want to dine at rather then showing up as getting a table on a saturday night is difficult...
I travelled with my husband and a 3 year old. Our room was large,spacious and clean. Had wonderful views overlooking the glass foyer which kept my little one entertained at night with the different colour lights it illuminates. The Poppi Lounge- bar area host happy hour only on Friday from 5pm - 7pm. Drinks are half price and warm snacks are provided. Service was very good and staff were friendly.
The Korenhuis Restaurant - breakfast is served here and has a variety of fresh breads, waffles machine, warm breakfast and cold breakfast. Worth while having breakfast here..but pricey.

When booking the Marriott Ghent for a deal book 21 days prior to arrival - the price will be far better then a last minute deal.

I have rated children activities average because there is was no activities for my daughter but the Marriott staff spoilt her to bits.

Room Tip: We had room 330 - very large and spacious - ideal for families. Does not have canal views..
