Our stay at the hotel started in a very bad way but thanks to the profesionalism of Maaren and Thomas we were able to enjoy the rest of the weekend. Those guys are really reflecting the values of the Marriott Group.

The Marriott Ghent Hotel is a great example of contradictions. The front entry of the hotel is not appealing at all, very generic and in fact a bit dirty but the back side that opens onto the canal is stunningly beautiful. The rooms were everything you would expect from a 4-star chain hotel: spacious, well appointed bathrooms, good amenities, comfortable...

The hotel is situated right in the heart of Ghent, making everything within easy walking distance. The staff were delightful, helpful and so enthusiastic. The room was a river view room, which was well worth the extra. It was spacious and clean, with a very comfortable bed and the one thing that my husband finds very important, due to being...

Overall this was a pleasant stay. We arrived quite early, but the very efficient staff on the desk managed to get us a room virtually straight away. The rooms are large and very well maintained, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The television showed a lot of British channels, which unfortunately meant I had to sit through Strictly Come Dancing!!!...

Visited for a weekend with a group of friends. Hotel is very nice with a modern look. Room was very spacious and modern too. Tv was bigger than mine at home but only issue was it needed 50 minutes to update when turned on each time. Would recommend this place and would certainly book here again.

I don't mind paying good money for a luxurious hotel experience and have stayed at quite a few Marriotts, but for the first time in 20 years of intensive traveling i canceled a reservation just hours before we were due to arrive. I had booked a room, breakfast ànd a rather expensive parking spot (30 euros). When i called, while...

Never park your car there. they raised the price to 30 euros a day. You should eat in the restaurant if you want bad service and overpriced meals. While the location is good, the staff were terrible. They have hired a lot of new staff who do not know what they are doing

It got better after check in. We had to wait some time to check in and then our room card didn't work despite being redone twice and we had to keep going back to reception. Main problem seemed to be in the lift where it was also required, but we couldn't get in the room either with the second card....third...

Pre-booked this for a 2 night stay last week. Lovely hotel, with friendly staff. One of the main advantages, is the location - alongside the canal, and across a pedestrian bridge to the centre, in which was a nice Christmas market. Some people have complained about the parking, however I decided to pay the fee to ensure my car was...

We only were here for one night, but it was a great place to explore from. By the water, with all the shops around. From booking in, with helpful staff telling us the best places to visit, a large, clean room and a super comfy bed. Parking is best done round the corner in the underground car park, three minute...
