“Concept Hotel with no personality”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

I have stayed many times at the Courtyard in Brussels cause of meetings in the area and i still think it feels cold and boring.
The rooms are nice, the beds are nice and everything is "nice" but personality... Not at all. You know what you get when you check in at a Marriott and it´s the same.

The staff is the plus at the Marriott, they shall not be blamed in any way. The check in desk are fast and know Brussels and the restaurant and bar staff are fantastic and nice to have short chat with while they serve you.

But still, the feeling when you leave is like you just had a hamburger at McDonalds instead of a nice lunch somewhere else.
but i have friends that love Marriott so this is my opinion.

just comeback from weekend break in Brussels.stayed in Courtyard mainly because i used them before in other cities and it did a job for me.so i kind of new what to expect.this courtyard was by far best where i have been to.staff on top.cleanliness on top.the rest was just as good as it should be.it is about 30 minutes bus journey from city but is worth it because of monies you pay for a stay.if i have to go to Brussels again i know where i will be staying unless is changes in pricing policies.

i stayed in courtyard Marriott Brussels as my last night from a business trip coming from Germany. After my high speed train arrived from Brussels -Midi, I took the train going to Brussels airport where I waited for the hotel shuttle. There is a billboard with the phone number to call the hotel for shuttle pick up. It took 20 minutes before the shuttle arrived, which was what they told me. check-in was efficient; went to my room at the fifth floor, since i preferred higher level room. definitely none smoking, a mark of Marriott hotels. My room was spacious, quiet, with safe, closetm good sized bathroom. I was able to reserve a pick up by the shuttle bus for an early morning trip back to the airport. Bus was punctual.
The hotel restaurant served delicous tuna salad. I will stay in this hotel again.

My wife and I stayed at the Courtyard Brussels in September 2012. We had taken the train from Paris to Brussels. One of the passengers on the train got us on the correct tram. We got off at the correct stop and asked people at the stop where the Courtyard was located. They didn't know it by Courtyard but knew Marriott. We found that the case in several European cities. One person told us it was a 5-minute walk. Actually, it would've been a lot longer than 5-minutes if we had walked the entire distance. We got up to a intersection, walked through it, met a lady and asked directions again. She told us to go back to the intersection, take the tram for two stops. We still didn't see the hotel, so, we asked a person getting gas at a gas station. They said it was about 200 meters and on the right. As we walked we saw the glow of green lights. The lady we talked to earlier mentioned we would see green. We got to the hotel, checked in, and I went to the exercise room. I have to say, their setup is by far the best I've seen at any Marriott or Marriott chain hotel. They had three treadmills, two eliptical trainers, two stationary bikes, two recumbent bikes, one stepper, a universal gym, dumbell free weights, separate male/female saunas, lockers, and private showers. It was awesome!!! The room was pretty standard for a Courtyard. We were so tired from traveling we were just glad to be with our old friend. The hotel staff were super!!! They were friendly and provided us with all the information we needed to get to the train station the next morning (a different station than we had arrived at). Brussels has three main train stations. The only thing that could be better is the directions to the hotel, including what trams and buses would get you within walking distance. I do recommend this hotel and I'd go back in a heartbeat... just for the exercise facility.

Room Tip: Hard to make this recommendation. This was my first stay at this hotel and I don't have any oth...

stayed at the Courtyard Marriott recently during my stay in Brussels.
Found the hotel quite comfortable and nice to stay.
Rooms are nice, large, clean and comfortable.
the hotel is slightly outside the main city, which can be a big negative if you need to travel into the city, there is only a bus available towards city from here; else a taxi is the only option.
The airport however is close by, about 15mins and there is a shuttle (not free - 7Euro) available from the hotel.
Restaurants are decent, there was a Greek food festival on and the food was quite good, though I found the service quite wanting both at dinner and breakfast. Slow, sluggish at best; and completely unavailable at times (just 1-2 waitresses in the entire restaurant)
For a change used the gym at the hotel, it is in the basement away in a corner. The gym is spacious but very very basic. The treadmill is so basic that it started squeaking and making noises as soon as one started it!
Overall an ok hotel, good to stay for a short trip, especially if your office/business is close by. Not recommended if you are in Brussels to see the city.

Have stayed at this hotel three times now. It is out of the central Brussels area but convenient to business locations and the airport. For the few times you need to go downtown, it is a relatively simple taxi ride. There are a couple of supermarkets walking distance away though not open on a Sunday. There are no outside restaurants within walking distance.

The hotel is relatively new and well kept. Rooms are a good size and well appointed. Wireless internet works well though the daily registration is a little annoying.

There is a single restaurant/bar in the building, Zinc. Lunch and dinner menu is relatively short but there are choices for all tastes. Breakfast buffet offers a good range of choices though there is no daily variety so if you have an extended stay can seem a bit boring.

Staff at the front desk are helpful.

overall pretty good. had a room on the main road that was too noisy - no double glazing seriously - but moved next day no problem.

rooms are decent size, maybe due a refurb in a couple of years

good but pricey facilities

inexcusable to charge for internet in this day and age otherwise 4 out of 5
