Over a period of 6 months the Brussels Marriott Hotel offered all their empty meeting spaces to a student organization in order to provide students a place to study: Co-Study Spaces.
As the hotel was open but on limited occupancy at the time, the hotel started a collaboration with BRIK, putting all meeting spaces, the restaurant and the executive lounge at their disposal for a total of 80 to 100 students daily. The students were spread throughout different rooms to guarantee social distancing.
The hotel was able to help a group of young, local people and at the same time it brought some life and joy back into the hotel.
Thanks to the students, the hotel associates felt once again a drive and motivation with people arriving in the hotel on a daily basis. Through a dedicated application, the students were able to see each morning whether there were still seats available at the Brussels Marriott. Upon arrival they registered at the Front Desk and signed out before leaving so that the number of available seats was always indicated correctly on the application. With the start of this initiative, other ideas were born like a special student room rate for the students who wanted to stay overnight during their exam period.
The hotel additionally helped one specific school to organize their exams in the hotel as the school had insufficient space to guarantee social distancing during the exams.
