A dream come through - staying at Conrad Brussels

I have lost count on the times I have visited the Belgian capital. Many visits I stayed with a good friend up by Avenue Louise, an elegant wide street in the borough of Ixelles. This is the wealthy part of town, with designer shops, expensive restaurants and exclusive hotels, and among the most exclusive places to stay is Conrad Brussels.

Conrad Brussels is a large and very impressive luxury hotel. It is conveniently located in the part of the avenue closest to the city centre, close to trams and the subway. It was opened in 1993 but its contemporary architecture blends in with the grand old facades along the avenue.

The Conrad Brussels is one out of two upscale luxury brands in the Hilton corporation, named after the founder of the hotel chain Conrad Hilton, from New Mexico of Norwegian origin. His father came from Hilton, a farm outside Oslo.

It offers 269 business class rooms or suites, a first class restaurant, and lobby bar. Guests have direct access to the hotel's exclusive health club, Aspria Avenue Louise, with a 17-metre pool, gym, sauna, jacuzzi and a dedicated spa with over 60 treatments.

As this hotel caters to the wealthy traveler, I would recommend you to check the prices, as this luxury is often followed by a hefty price tag.

I am happy to say that in November Enjoy Food & Travel will indulge in the luxury at Conrad Brussels. As a friend and I are traveling to Brussels we found that www.hrs.de could offer us a double room for €159 per night, a very favorable price to stay in this hotel.

I cannot wait to get there, but in the mean time do indulge in some of the luxury, by looking through the hotel website. Do take the photo and video tour to experience the beautiful rooms, the restaurant and bar, and the beautiful pool.

See you at Conrad's!
