The Marriott Hotel Brussels Review

Marriott Hotel


On our European city break last month to Brussels we were lucky enough to stay not just at one hotel but at two and I love how adaptable toddlers are too change, Mr A loved the first hotel but equally enjoyed packing the backs, walking across the city centre to our next stop the Marriott, which is in a great location about 30 seconds from a metro and tram station and a 5 min walk to the Grand Place

The great thing about the Marriott is that no matter where you are you can be guaranteed a certain level of customer service and facilities and this one did not disappoint. Upon arrival the staff were friendly and informative and offered us some fresh fruit, city maps and help with our bags. We had a king-sized bed with plenty of comfy pillows. Even though we were offered a crib for Mr A we always opt for sharing the bed (everyone gets a more sound sleep this way) it was no issue as the bed was big enough.

The room was spacious and had a lot of seating, including a table to work on, a large TV, chest of draws, wardrobe as well as a mini fridge, kettle of coffee station. The bathroom was beautiful, with a lovely deep bath, lots of towels and toiletries.

Homemade burger


We decided to have supper in the Midtown bar at the Hotel, we tend to always eat at local cafes if we are not doing self-catering but after a full day of exploring the city it was nice to relax and the staff were very attentive and great with Mr A, who was so taken with the waitress. I opted for a lovely fresh roasted veg salad and John went for the house burger, both got the thumbs up. They also have a very well stocked Hotel bar with local beers and wine and Mr A enjoyed his pasta.

The breakfast was very impressive with so much choice, especially the fruit salad bar which I loved. They had cooked options which John went for as well as "make your own" Belgium waffle machine, pancakes, pastries, lots of different cereals with healthy granola, muesli and yogurt options plus coffee brought to your table.

So how family friendly is The Marriott, Brussels? From start to end the staff were amazing with Mr A, going out of their way to make him feel welcome. In both the restaurant and breakfast there were healthy options for children and the rooms are more than large enough to fit all of us comfortably and it wasn't even a "family" room. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel as it had everything we needed and a little more.

  5. Brussels is just amazing. We stayed at a small hotel about 3 blocks from The Marriott and we loved it. I could only imagine the real life experience at The Marriott and their excellent service. Great to hear you got to experience a great atmosphere.
