Everything you would expect from a Marriott; large, clean, outstanding rooms and bathrooms, easy to find with GPS, on-site parking, incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Unfortunately, it appears there were quite a few business meetings/seminars going on and all the rooms opened up onto the central "grand lounge" where the masses congregated. My wife and I were woken up in... More

What a beautiful city, much forgotten by most of the world. After a hard day seeing the sights of this great city, checking in to the Marriott was an absolute pleasure. Such lovely friendly staff on reception. Great décor in the public places and better still, lovely rooms, even at the lowest grade. We had every comfort that we could... More

Stayed here for 1 night on a business trip, and on arrival found a parking space easily, although they are very small spaces, and headed to reception. Was upgraded to a suite with canal view and on arrival at the room was very happy. Staff at the desk were very helpful, and gave me a map and some recommendations for... More

My parents and I took the train from London to Ghent, and spent a three-day weekend at the Marriott Ghent Hotel. Overall, we had a lovely stay. The hotel is perfectly located alongside the canal. We greatly enjoyed being able to walk straight out the door and enjoy the delicious Belgian beer and food that Ghent offers on the waterfront.... More

Staff goes out of their way to be helpful; personal assistance when key didn't work and then couldn't get internet access. Was carrying three bags across lobby and gentleman offered assistance. One of the best Hotels in Europe owned my major chain.

We normally don't stay in big chain hotels when we travel in Europe. But this was a great exception. The Ghent Marriott is located in the center of the canal right in the middle of Ghent. When you step out the door you are in the middle of the most picturesque spot in town. The rooms are unusually spacious and... More

The Marriott in Ghent is located right on the Canal. Choose Canal view rooms and you can probably see most of what is to be seen in Ghent. Right in the centre of everything that is in the beautiful city. Rooms are grand and chic. A nice blend of business cum leisure hotel

This hotel is perfectly situated along the canal/river. The rooms are spacious & have everything you need for a comfortable stay, including an iron & ironing board if you are doing laundry. The parking is not cheap at 30 Euros per night but the convenience of not having to drive around Ghent is worth it. We did not dine in... More

Chose this hotel because we wanted a great location in Ghent and like to keep our loyalty with Marriott. Marriott Ghent gets it right in every way. It is a first class operation about as superbly located as a hotel can be, but at the same time is not huge and overbearing in a historic neighborhood where a giant modern... More
