Hotel Description

Ghent did well to pedestrianize its historic city center: in so scenic a city, walking (or biking) allows time to linger with longing over its sumptuous frontage. Right in the thick of it all sits Sandton Grand Hotel Reylof, spanning a 1724 townhouse and its 20th-century neighbor — a union which is almost a perfect metaphor for the contemporary boutique hotel, balancing local authenticity and personal intimacy with global, forward-looking standards of service.

The public spaces exemplify Empire style to a tee — ornate mantelpieces and wainscoting, pedimented doorways — and bear the names of a slew of Ghent’s finest, from Valerius de Saedeleer to Emile Claus to Lieven Bauwens. (It’s okay if they’re not household names.) The whole enterprise honors Baron Olivier de Reylof, a wealthy poet from a time when such a thing was imaginable. Yet this hotel also puts modern “green hotels” to shame, incorporating sophisticated micro-cogenerators and heat-recapture systems throughout in a marvelously competent display of sustainability.

In the rooms and suites the décor skews less theatrical, favoring an eggshell-and-tan palette spiced with warm tones and parquet flooring, all naturally lit by floor-to-ceiling windows; complimentary wi-fi, Nespresso machines, flatscreens, and rain showers evince a thoroughly contemporary approach to comfort. Besides enviable views from private terraces, suites add gratifying touches like freestanding tubs and integrated sound systems.

The orthographically unorthodox Zen-Senses@Reylof handles things on the wellness front, including a sauna and an indoor pool, while the restaurant, Lof, balances modern French plates with classical technique in a series of artful preparations bursting with as much color as flavor. There’s a courtyard garden for al fresco dining, weather permitting, but the real hit is the bar — its 11,000 LED lights make for an endlessly fascinating conversation piece, and the seemingly endless champagne list certainly doesn’t hurt.
