Last spring my wife and I used Marriott Points for a week's stay at the Ghent Marriott, in the middle of old Ghent. What a beautiful location and a great staff. Although the weather was typical Belgium with some days having sun, rain, snow, and windy conditions one after the other, we still managed to thoroughly enjoy our time there. We loved the Belgium Waffles and other typical foods to include a really neat soup restaurant which we went to more than onc time. We drove to Oostend on Easter and the whol town was alive with pedestrians and even had a community band performing in the square even though the temp was about 40 degrees with a 20 mph wind blowing. By all means, try the Ghent Marriott...you won't regret it.
Ironmen52, could not agree more. Got back a week ago from 5 nights in the Ghent Marriott and 2 nights in the Brussels Marriott and had a fabulous time. I put a huge trip summary and tons of pictures on Insider last weekend.
