not worth the money they charge
The Sheraton Brussels Hotel and Towers is in the business district of Brussels...IBM, the US Embassy and the stock exchange are right down the street. The city’s HUGE shopping mall, City 2 is also right down the street.
This hotel isn't in the 'touristy' area, but have no fear..the train station is right across the street, so you can go anywhere and it’s a short walk to the Grand Place and Mannekin Pis.
There are plenty of little places to eat around the property, as the hotel restaurant can be pricey.
My room was very spacious...a rarity in Europe. I had 2 queen size beds, big closet and work desk with high speed internet. All rooms have high speed internet, but there is a charge of $10.00 to use it. Perhaps they'll realize that smaller hotels are offering it for free.
The bathroom left a lot to be desired. It looked “old” and drab…badly in need of an update. The counter had curling iron burns on it and the hairdryer cord was about 3 inches long, making it almost impossible to use.
They do offer 24hour room service, and have 3 restaurants onsite…none of which I visited.
The real joy of this hotel is the 30th floor fitness center, sundeck, pool and sauna. It overlooks the city center and has some GREAT views. This is the only hotel in Brussels with an indoor, heated swimming pool.
The concierge was very helpful in offering me a train map and dining recommendations.
Over all, the hotel was in a good location and the lobby was really nice, (smoke filled) but the hallways leading to the rooms and the rooms themselves, needed renovations. Just to make them more ‘updated’. Especially for the rates they charge, the hotel rooms should reflect a luxury property.
If you arrive by train into Central Station, you’ll need to catch tram 90 to Place Rogier, follow the exit signs, and the hotel is right across the street.
