“"Felt like a boutique hotel"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2011

Location, Service, Rooms - this hotel had it all ! We started our 7 day belgian holiday with a 3 night stay at the Marriott Ghent - the hotel is wonderfully located, right on the main canal and has an exit straight onto the canal. The staff is very efficient and friendly. We upgraded our room to a junior suite (the regular rooms were nice as well) - this had a lot of space and was on the top floor, so very quiet as well. The breakfast was nice - we had al a carte, but most people had the buffet ... most outside places open only after 9.30 am - so breakfast in the hotel is a good idea. There are some nice shopping options around the hotel. Ghent is a beautiful town and we had a wonderful stay, made all the more nice by the hotel. Will definitely stay here if we go back to Ghent.

Room Tip: if you want some extra space, go for the junior suite non-canal view

Stayed at the Marriott in Ghent. Perfect, not a multi-story monolith, but a compact modernised hotel behind the preserved facade of a historic canal-side building. Perfect location for explorations of this historic on foot. How soon can I go back.

The Ghent Marriott is definitely one of the nicest Marriott properties in Europe. It's located in the city center, right next to the medieval port area. The architecture nicely combines the old Flanders townhouse with contemporary elements. Rooms are nice and reasonable value for money. The bar is spectacular and excellent value for money, so is the restaurant.

The only downside is the lack of a lounge, but the reasonably priced lobby bar compensates adequately.

I recently stayed here for 2 nights and was overall very pleased with this hotel. The rooms are large with everything you would expect of the Marriott chain. Location wise, I dont think you could be in a better spot; right on the water with plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby. The main shopping street is also situated just over the bridge and so very easy to explore.

All in all, a great experience. The only grumble that I have is the lack to wifi. At this time there is no public wifi offered in the hotel (including rooms and lobby). There is a wired connection in the room (for which there may be a fee) and also some PC's available for use by the reception area.

Pulled into this hotel in the middle of the night, so couldn't quite get a handle on where exactly we were. Once inside, the unique architecture greets you - a mix of old and new. Original brick house mixed with modern glass...very beatiful. I noticed a small door in back of lobby and guessed that it headed outside and once through it, my jaw dropped. The hotel sits right on the main canal in Ghent and the view is astonishing! Steps away from outdoor cafes, music venues, canal boat tours and the historic square. Hotel is smaller than most Marriotts and has a boutique feel to it which is nice. Staff were young and friendly. Breakfast restaurant is in original old building and the food was fabulous.

I visited Ghent in May 2011 with a friend. Ghent is a wonderful, small city with great architecture and great shopping. The Marriott was perfectly located, in a small street right behind the canal. Several good restaurants and shops in easy walking distance. The tram system was not easy to understand, so I recommend that you take a taxi if you arrive by train.
The rooms were large and clean. Very good bathroom with bathtub. Breakfast was not included and rather expensive, so I recommend going out for breakfast. There is a little place right around the corner, on the other side of the Design Museum.
The front desk staff at the Marriott were very friendly and helped us get reservations at a late hour as well as get taxis. We had a great time and we`ll be back.
