About us
The contemporary Crowne Plaza Brussels Airport is located a stone's throw away from Belgium National Airport and next to the Brussels Ring, which connects to all major capitals in the Benelux. The hotel is part of "The Corporate Village" which consists of 76,000 m2 office space and is home to many national and international companies. All 315 guest rooms, including a range of suites and a Club Floor, are designed using the latest trends and are the perfect haven of peace. Restaurant memories come from many places. The sights, sounds, scents and, most importantly; the service. The moment a guest steps into one of our hotels, they walk into a genuinely memorable experience. As a Front Desk Agent, you'll not only be the person they rely on to handle transactions, offer local insights and anticipate every detail of a friction-free experience. You'll also create the warm atmosphere that makes our guests feel at home in any location.
