What a pleasant surprise to see the response from the manager of The Hotel (formerly the Brussels Hilton) to the posting "March EPL Brussels: new Hilton same as old Hilton."
"Important decisions are being made every day and we are doing our utmost to guarantee a high level of service and standards .... I can assure you that the renovations and refurbishments of the other areas of the hotel (restaurants, banquet rooms, guest rooms) will follow in the very near future ....We aim to provide a secure environment and are therefore not allowed to store any items from non-residents. We apologise if this has caused any inconvenience for you."
