Brussels Hotel Deals Capture Belgium's Wintertime Splendor

From Luxe Rooms to Frosty Festivals, the Ice Magic Package Demystifies the Best of Brussels

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM--(Marketwired - Dec 30, 2013) - There's something to be said for magic. It makes a great plotline for movies and adds a layer of excitement to holidays. But taking the concept to an entirely new level is the Ice Magic package now available at the Brussels Marriott Hotel and the Renaissance Brussels Hotel. With competitive rates, numerous perks and some of the most convenient hotel locations in the city, this is one promotion that makes magic an attractive reality.

No matter which Brussels, Belgium hotel travelers opt to stay in, they will encounter an enticing blend of history and luxury. Guest rooms are coolly contemporary, amenities including high-speed Internet and fully-equipped fitness centers cater to modern needs. Restaurants are destinations in their own right among locals and visitors who demand regional ingredients within cosmopolitan dishes. Best yet, these accommodations offer direct access to Brussels' best museums, shops and cafes.

Of course, guests can enjoy all these advantages and more when they book the Ice Magic package. In addition to staying in some of the most spacious and attractive hotel rooms in Brussels, visitors can look forward to complimentary breakfast and, upon their arrival, a welcome glass of Glühwein, that beloved regional drink made from red wine mulled with raisins and spices.

The promotion involves more than a warm welcome. As one of the most exciting Brussels hotel packages available, Ice Magic also includes one voucher booklet that lets visitors experience the best of Brussels' wintertime attractions. The Bruges Snow and Ice Sculpture Festival - whose theme this year is, appropriately enough, Ice Magic -- is made even more accessible thanks to the buy-one-get-one-free ticket voucher. (Inspired by tales like "Harry Potter" and "The Lord of the Rings," the sculptures express a literal interpretation of ice and magic.) Art isn't confined to frozen water, though. Guests will also find a voucher for a 50-percent discount on adult rates to see "Art of the Brick," a traveling exhibit of LEGO-built art that is making its European debut in Brussels. Ice skating, free Ferris wheel rides and other goodies are all included in the booklet as well. Plus the Ice Magic package includes proper kitting for sightseeing in chilly winter weather -- guests receive a complimentary scarf and pair of gloves upon arrival.

Rates for Ice Magic are based on double occupancy and start at EUR 81 per night at the Renaissance Brussels Hotel and EUR 129 per night at the Brussels Marriott Hotel. The package is available during weekends only until 9 February 2014. Travelers interested in booking the package should visit www.marriott.com/brussels, choose a hotel, choose dates and view the available packages.
