Seems ok spelt either way? A gem of a city located in the Flemish area of Belgium.
This day was Father's Day in Belgium so Bernie can celebrate twice! and excellent weather; sunny, blue skies, cool in the shade.
Our hotel was located in the heart of city center next to the canal. Erin and Brian started the day enjoying the hotel's Sunday …
... and there was music everywhere. Bands were playing 60's and 70's music and in the main squares there were concerts with all types of music. John was pretty impressed as there was also free beer! You paid 2 Euro for a glass and then could drink as much beer as you wanted. Afterwards you gave the glass back and they gave you the 2 Euro back! The treat of the day was Belgium Frites! Translation: double fried chips served in a cone with a ...
... told us it. We then drove through France to get the ferry back to England. Once there it was back on another bus to get through to London to the hostel where it first started for the people who had been on the full 29day tour. Sarah and Ben, this awesome couple that actually got engaged in Switzerland during the tour, had decided they would stay in a hotel that night and couldn't get their money back from the hostel so I ended up taking ...
... opinion) tastier brews. It also didn’t help that our server from the previous evening told us that they don’t always pour the Max fresh, that they are sometimes leftovers from failed attempts at finishing the entire litre. True? Who knows, but I was quite satisfied with my Rochefort 10 and Bink Bruin. We settled up and headed ‘home’ to bed. Finally get a taste of the Westy 12 tomorrow. Can’t ...
... head back to Joke’s. And guess what…I got lost as usual. I knew the general direction I had to go, but I still ended in streets I haven’t seen. Lucky I had most of the map loaded on my phone, otherwise I would have been screwed. Took me a while, but I got back. Did a little bit more writing, had some food, and played a bit of guitar. I was listening to some of the voice memos on ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Ghent Hotel
Gets no better than this
This BRAND NEW hotel is fantastic. Large rooms, nice baths, etc. etc. The staff were very very very helpful. I would liken it to a 5* hotel experience in almost every way. Great value for the price, stay there if you can!
It must be noted that the location cannot be beat in Ghent - picturesque, close to plenty of dining and drinking options as well as sight-seeing and shopping. You are really in the middle of it all there. We absolutely loved the hotel.
Beer selection in the minibar, however, was poor considering this is a hotel Belgium ;) ha ha
Booked a very last minute stay at this hotel through expedia. Managed to get a canal view room with king sized bed for £300 for two nights. As it turned out this was one of the best bargains I've ever found.
Comfort & location
My husband, my two sons and I planned to spend the first night of our two car driving trip to Denmark at this hotel. We changed our arrangements mid trip to include this hotel as our final night as well.
It is well up to Marriott standards of comfort and I love the toiletries provided. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the location was perfect for exploring this beautiful town.
It was unfortunate that we had to park off-sight on our first visit but not a major problem. The staff were very helpful with directions and with handling our luggage.
Spent a very enjoyable weekend at this impressive hotel which is situated in a perfect position to see all the main sights of the lovely city of Ghent.
We took advantage of a last minute deal to stay in the #2 ranked TA hotel for Gent. I booked it direct with the hotel and found it to the usual high Marriott standard.
When arriving by car this property is easy to find. Once you've entered Gent Centre just follow the signs for the St. Michiels parking. The hotel is in the same street. Parking structure of the hotel is convenient and it costs € 15 per day.
Good price -- maybe because I stayed here on the first week of opening. Nicely furnished spacious rooms. Excessive number of pillows!
Visited this hotel after having to re-book due to an accident and first comments are the hotel were terrific, delaying our reservation until our son was well, even though we booked a non-refundable/non-cancellable rate.
Nous avons passé 2 nuits au Marriott Ghent, et avons beaucoup apprécié ce très bel hotel. De l'extérieur, il se fond dans le vieux Ghent avec beaucoup de bonheur...il est caché derrière 3
RThis hotel is truly a gem! Ask for a room overlooking the canal. The atrium lobby and colored lights make hanging out in the lobby a one of a kind experience. The room was very comfortable with flat screen tv, and all the amenities. My wife and I really enjoyed their bar called Poppi and their very friendly staff.G
