Conrad Brussels - Enjoy! A review of Steigenberger Grandhotel
Pros: Immaculate Accommodation. Superb Staff. Excellent ambience. Attention to detail.
Cons: It's not usually cheap, but some great deals can be found - as we did.
The Bottom Line: Enjoy the ambience and be pampered.
We had looked forward to spending our anniversary at the Conrad for some time and we were certainly not disappointed. It being our wedding anniversary, and being a Hilton Hhonors Gold VIP member, we were given an upgrade to a duplex suite at an astonishingly good rate, although it is clear that any room at this hotel would be delightful. A fax and five telephones may not be at the top of the wish-list for a leisure stay, but two floors, two bathrooms, two televisions, dining room, settee, two armchairs and the most comfortable bed (with incredibly comfortable pillows) on a huge mezzanine floor certainly impressed; the room was immaculately clean and well furnished. Discreet delivery of complimentary champagne on ice as a welcome was the jewel in the crown.
Brussels is a city well worth exploring and to return to find that your curtains have been shut, your slippers have been laid out by your bedside and luxurious bathrobes have been laid out on the bed makes you feel totally pampered. Breakfast was delivered to our room promptly, as ordered, and was delicious.
Staff were friendly and efficient - from the front desk to the housekeeping staff. OK - so there was a bit of confusion at check-in, but this was actually quite amusing as it happens and was dealt with professionally by the duty manageress.
In conclusion, a fantastic stay at a world-class hotel. Go there - and enjoy it!
