My husband and I just spent 3 wonderful nights at the Marriott Brussels Hotel. The hotel is across from the Bourse so you can easily find it. We took the train from the airport to Brussels Midi and then took the metro (underground tram) to the Bourse, and we were there. We had an early arrival (0930) but the hotel had a room for us.
The room was clean and well maintained. Everyone was as nice as they could be. The area is busy all day and night. My husband heard street noise all through the night but I did not. We had access to the Executive Lounge which had a great breakfast but the happy hour was not quite as deluxe as other European Marriott's. Although they had small signs around the lobby reminding us that thieves blend in, I did not find it offensive but that is because I have several colleagues that have had bags stolen in the train stations in Belgium. However, I felt safe while I was at the hotel.
We were very close to the Grand Place, which is not to be missed. Also within 2 blocks of the Mannekin Pis. We did the "chocolate walk" around the Grand Sablon and bought many different chocolates. I think it was only about a half mile from the hotel. When on the street headed for the Mannekin, there is a place that sells tapestries, authentic Belgian made ones. If you are interested in purchasing one, you can negotiate. I asked if the price offered was the best they could do, and the sales person immediately deducted 10% from the sticker price. Maybe my fellow travelers could do better but I left feeling happy.
On Saturday late morning, instead of leaving the hotel and going left towards the Bourse, we took a right. There was all sorts of activity going on in the back streets: cafes, farm stands, and places selling fish and other goodies from counters along the sidewalk.
All in all we had a great 3-day weekend. It was lighthearted and fun. The hotel was a delight to visit.
