The Ghent Marriott is a 5 star hotel. It is located in the heart of old town Ghent and when you walk out the back door of the hotel to the view of the canal with the century's old city as a backdrop you will literately be transported back in time. The staff was very attentive, friendly and for those of you like me, who failed to learn any Flemish at all - they speak fluent English. The rooms are large with a seating area and the beds were very comfortable, Lots of storage space, free wifi and plenty of power outlets for your electronics. The only negative is that if you want a room with a view of the canal you will need to spring for a more expensive room- but you are not in your room long enough to notice. You should also go ahead and purchase the breakfast each day as well- it offers a great buffet style service with many, many foods to choose from, as well as cook to order breakfast if you desire. If you are brave enough to try , the hotel has bicycle rentals for you to try to act as a local as well. Local sights, a large variety of restaurants, and access to the local tram service is less than a 5 minute walk in any direction. The hotel restaurant also has a outside seating area overlooking the canal to hang out, have a glass of wine ( or one Belgium's many brews) to people watch, stare at the beauty and relax. Ghent was our favorite place in Belgium to visit out of the 5 cities we visited. Had we stayed at another hotel I just do not believe we would have had the same experience- I came home relaxed and believing in dragons..so will you!
