Occupying a 27-floor tower on the chic Boulevard de Waterloo, The Hotel is a bastion of luxury at the heart of the Belgian capital. The Hotel has built a reputation as the destination of choice for discerning guests from all over the world.

With clean lines and a striking design, the 422 rooms do away with the usual desk, armchair and lamps — replaced with a stylish cream leather sofa running the width of each room in front of the window and a sleek oval table providing a space in which to work or relax. Sliding, semi-transparent panels replace curtains, bathing rooms in natural light, while electric blackout blinds guarantee a great night’s sleep. The spacious bathrooms form a natural extension to the open-plan space, allowing guests to take in the city vistas.

The 24th-floor Panorama Lounge is a haven for Panorama Deluxe and Suites guests, where they can enjoy breakfast, or a free drink or snack from the all-day bar, or browse in the library.

Eight stylish meeting rooms, spread over the 25th to 27th floors, provide an inspiring space for events, with first-rate facilities and stunning views over the capital. The largest rooms can accommodate up to 160 delegates.

Two ballrooms and an exhibition-reception space on the first floor offer an ideal, festive setting for celebrations. The Park Ballroom overlooks the Egmont Park and the Grand Ballroom, which can be divided into three distinct spaces, overlooks the bright lights of the Boulevard de Waterloo.

The 23rd-floor Urban Spa & Fitness offers superb facilities for relaxation and workouts. The Urban Fitness features an airy, ultramodern cardio and strength training space. The Urban Spa includes two relaxation rooms, three treatment spaces offering massages, beauty treatments and more, plus a steam room and a spacious sauna.

The restaurant, headed up by chef Pierre Balthazar, brings an element of surprise to plates with a ‘menu of the moment’ that’s all about spontaneity. Rather than planning menus weeks in advance, Pierre and his chefs collaborate with trusted suppliers, relying on their suggestions to select the very best produce, from superb meat and fish to fresh fruit and vegetables.
