It was a nice place. The rooms were nice, clean, and it was decently priced. The location was good as well, maybe only a 25 min walk to get into the real center of town.

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Points by Sheraton Brussels
The best hotel: friendly, clean and great room.
I just returned after 1 night stay in Brussels with my wife and brother- and sister-in-law. We booked 2 rooms from the internet for only Eur. 69,- / room for 2 adults. This is very cheap for staying in a 4 stars hotel in Europe.
The hotel is hidden in the Louise Avenue that for only a single tram we can go to the city center, stop at the front of the palace. The hotel is also reachable with a single tram from the south railway station (Brussels Midi/Zuid) where international high speed trains stop in Brussels.
The room is big and clean with 2 small chocolates on our pillow when we entered. Though our window faces to a roof of houses in the opposite of the hotel, but we don't care it too much. The room is with a king bed and a big armchair that we loved it so much. After strolling in the city for hours, sitting on the chair is so relaxing.
Staff is very friendly and kindly help us. One of the staff could still remember me that I've stayed in the hotel last year. One night we went back from the city at late and finding the shop on the corner near the hotel was close. We hadn't eaten and the restaurant in the hotel was also close. We asked to a staff for something we can eat and he kindly tried to find some food from the kitchen. Though it was only a french baguet, but it helped us and it was free of charge. What a nice touch.
I have stayed twice in this hotel and I love it so much. We will definitely stay in this hotel again if we want to visit Brussels.
Cozy and convenient
My husband, three kids, and I enjoyed this hotel very much when we went to Belgium. The hotel staff, overall, were very helpful and kind to all of us. We had to book two rooms because the rooms in Europe are generally very small. The rooms were adjoining to one another. One room had a microwave and small refrigerator. We took advantage of this amenity and purchased groceries from a deli on the corner. The food in Europe is extremely expensive, so it helped that we can buy food for breakfast and lunch and eat it at the hotel room. We felt that the rooms were decent and accomodated us. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone travelling in Brussels. We would definately come back to this hotel on our next visit. It is close to Brussels square and there is public transporation to get around. People are generally nice in Belgium.
I stayed at FP with my husband in March 05. Thanks to Easter offer, it was the best hotel deal we had for long, long time. I had lived relatively close by a few years ago, and I knew that the location of the hotel is very good. It is very nice that it is not located at busy Avenue Louise (LOT of traffic noise...), but one block away of it.
The room was very big, with small kitchenette. It was very well cleaned, and it was nice to watch TV on a lazyboy.
The hotel has very cute garden at 4th floor, unfortunately the weather was slightly too cold to sit out there, but I can imagine that it is very nice at summer.
We did not have breakfast at the hotel due to its expensive price (18,50 euros, which is -unfortunately- very common in Europe). However, there is a nice coffee shop round the corner serving Illy coffee, sandwiches, salads...
Small con: the hassle with safety deposit box keys. Unfortunately it seems that the hotel does not have a consistent policy with the safety deposit keys (customer may keep it, or the reception may store the key).
Nice surprise at this hotel
We stayed at the 4 Points and were pleased with the 2 rooms we got.
They were clean, although not ready until much later after we arrived in the early AM. But once we got in our rooms, we found the beds to be comfortable. Bathrooms were large and accommodating for 2. But the best part of the hotel is the spa area at the top of the hotel. It looked like a full service facility that had just been opened to the public. Steam shower, LARGE wrirlpool, and since the hotel wasn't crowded, my brother and I had it all to ourselves.
Good place. You won't be disappointed
Classy part of Brussels
I stayed in this hotel after alot of consideration, and what swayed me was the reviews on this site!! Well I was absolutely delighted with the hotel and the location it was in! It was a short, say 15 minute, walk from the city centre, but it was in an excellent location (I would say the more classy part of Brussels). And over the road was a delightful Irish pub, which was good fun. The hotel itself was clean, modern and excellent value for money. There was also a sauna room, with a jacuzzi etc, which was also a bonus. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would definately visit it again!
Selected the hotel from the reviews on this site and glad to say made a very good choice. Hotel is as described by others, smart, modern, clean with large rooms and beds. It is ideally placed just outside the main area with some nice restaurants within easy walking distance and a nice drop of Guinness at the irish bar across the street. Everybody we met was friendly and helpful. Very handy location for the trams in all directions
As for Brussels itself I was a bit disappointed as very little of interest to see and more shabby than I expected.
What a Great Hotel - Gold Star!
I had read all the reviews of this hotel, and I was expecting a great hotel, and boy, that was exactly what I got.
The hotel was clean, tidy and spacious.
The staff, particularly at reception, could not have been more helpful and they all spoke fantastic English (I was a little worried about this as my french is non existent!)
My room was fab, it was spacious, quiet, clean and very cool. The air conditioning made all the difference and the coffee available in the hospitaility tray was lovely.
I must be honest, I conduct Hotel mystery visits as my main job, but this was a personal leisure break, and this hotel would have scored top marks, and that is saying something.
A tip, the hotel is located just off Avenue Louise, a little outside of the historical and tourist bit of Brussels so will need to get the tram into town (only a five minute ride though). The trams run on the road outside the hotel, and the staff will happily give you directions to the tram stop, a map and tell you which tram to get, but they also sell the tram tickets at reception, and they are cheaper than if bought on the tram itself, so definately get your travel tickets here.
We ate the the cow themed restaurant, and when we walked in it was very quiet and I thought that might be a bad sign, however the starter, main course and desert were all fantastic. Order the fillet steak, delicious! Also get the coffee, as the milk comes in the funniest cow shaped jug and take some time to look at all the cartoons on the walls, they are really good.
If you fancy eating out the hotel (but not to far away), walk out the hotel heading from Avenue Louise, and just keep going straight, past the Irish Pub (can't remember its name) and go for two blocks till you get to Roxi on the corner on the left hand side, their food is great and there are loads of locals there too.
I am not normally this a positive person and normally have at least one small criticism (or ten!) but I do not have one about this hotel. If you get the chance definately go to this hotel, and I hope you have as good a visit as I did.
After trekking around Europe, feeling tired and messy - this hotel was definitely one of the best in Europe to come 'home' to. Put your feet up and relax after sightseeing. Service was outstanding. the rooms are huge! Very clean (which is my # 1 consideration). The lovely dooners and pillows will whisk anyone away into a dreamy sleep. Very quiet street and the room I had had a lovely outlook onto an enclosed garden. Close to all boutique shops and a quick hop over to the newer side of town for a huge variety of restaurants if you can't find one closer. Have to admit, the restaurants closer seemed to be geared towards 'tourist' style including the price. But there are plenty of other delish places nearby. Enjoy!
Nice hotel with little sauna
Was here last fall and I really liked the hotel. We booked it by an internet travel agency and they have cheap weekend rates, the breakfast was included, and there was also a small sauna on the top floor. The neighbourhood was good, close to the nice Louizalaan. There is a tramstop close by if you don't like to walk to the center. Car park under the hotel. And the staff was very friendly. I probably go back to this hotel for my next visit to Brussels
Best kept secret
My company booked me into this lovely hotel. Hidden in a sidestreet of Avenue Louise it's a very quiet place with very friendly staff. I specially enjoyed the small garden behind the hotel.

... The basilica itself was… interesting. We walked around it and then stepped inside, admiring its beauty. Then, we decided it was time to hit the WC, and saw signs to a cafeteria, which was the first indication of weirdness. When we walked down, there was a restaurant and bar. Directly underneath the altar.
Inside the restaurant there was also a stage. According to the posters lining the walls of the bathrooms, the basilica, at night, ...
I wandered into a chocolate shop and bought a small sampling to try. They require a minimum of 5 pieces so that is what I got. I tried passionfruit, coconut, violet, orange and tiramisu. Some were milk chocolate, some dark chocolate and some white chocolate. I think the violet was my favorite! For lunch I bought a sandwich with camembert cheese that was delicious. After one last look at the beautiful Market Square, it was time to ...
... armed dudes in camo. Our bus arrives. There are two tourist bus lines in Brussels, red and blue. We are on the red, which takes us past the typically sights, Kings palace, grand palace etc. we swap to the blue line, which takes us out to the Atomium. Talk of big kid, I want/need to take the light to the top of this one. So we "hop off" and join the other tourists at the big balls. Great fun, good view. The Atomium was original but in 1958 then revamp in 2006.... I think. ...
As Sophie's house is located in the boarder between France and Belgium, we, of course won't miss the chance to visit " the country of chocolate." We took train from Douai to Lille Flandres (7.2 euro) and then to Bruxelles midi (30 euro). My sister loves to take photos for every train and every ticket we have taken. She got excited easily when the train's head is in cooler color or fancier shape (like a bullet or double levels). Sophie was with us and her ...

We were excited to see Alpha on tap at the airport parking lot beer garden but unfortunately the keg was dry. Instead we shared a final cheers and said our goodbyes with yet another variation of Freddo Cappucchino.
