Summary
Towering high above the Brussels skyline on the Boulevard de Waterloo, the high-end fashion-shopping street of Brussels, The Hotel lets you escape the city rush and relax.

Regularly praised for its impeccable service, elegantly appointed rooms and vibrant atmosphere, guests are invited to enjoy the spectacular views from the iconic building while meeting for business, or indulging in a well-earned treatment in the spa.

The Hotel is superbly located and is merely a few minutes away from the main attractions of the city: the famous fashion Boulevard de Waterloo, the historic Grand Place and the European Parliament buildings.
Main activities
The hotel has 421 rooms and 18 suites. Facilities include a restaurant, a bar, an executive lounge, meeting rooms, a spa and a fitness.
History
The hotel was built in the 1960s on the Boulevard de Waterloo in Brussels, a shopping area running from the Porte Louise to the Porte de Namur. It was one of the first international hotels to be built in Brussels. At that time, the buildings along the Boulevard de Waterloo were all in neo-rococo, neo-classical or neo-renaissance style. The hotel building, however, caused a rupture with those styles being a massive tower containing 27 floors. The architect agency that designed the building was Montois Partners Architects, an agency located in Brussels.

The 94-metre-high hotel is the highest public viewpoint in Brussels. The building is really one of the most widely recognised sky-high building on the skyline of Brussels. When city officials decided that for the long-term tall buildings should disappear in Brussels, they decided not to include the hotel on the list with buildings to be removed. This decision proves that the building has become a landmark, and a part of Brussels city centre.

In March 2014, U.S. President Barack Obama and his entourage rented a total of 283 rooms of this and another hotel in the city (Crowne Plaza) during a single overnight visit to Brussels, with the president staying at The Hotel Brussels.
