I guess I should elaborate.

I'm not looking to stalk anyone. I'm searching for suitable/desirable hotels to suggest to the company for our soon to start BRU to LOS flights.

I'm sure staying near city center would be the most desirable, but not sure the transportation issues would be acceptable to the hotel or the company.

Is there a train station at or near the BRU airport?
 
Used to stay at the Europa Crown Plaza. Subway station in the basement or about a 20 min walk to the main downtown area.
 
Avoid ALL airport area hotels unless you want complete isolation! $$$$!!!

Downtown is only 15-20 minutes away from BRU and I know crews from various airlines stay at the Sheraton, Hilton, and Crowne Plaza.

Lucky you, where are you staying in LOS? get your shots and shooting skills up todate.
 
Avoid the airport hotels, if possible. A ground handling company (like AviaPartner) can easily arrange crew transport to/from your hotel in the city.

Plenty of crews "downtown" at the Hilton Brussels (on Waterloo) and the Crowne Plaza Brussels City Centre (Le Palace). Both chains have multiple properties in BRU, so be careful to specify. My pick would be the Crowne Plaza because it has free WiFi.

You didn't ask, but here are my thoughts on Lagos. Only two decent places there: Sheraton Lagos and the Le Meridien. I think the Meridien is nicer, but it's on the "island" and the drive can be quite long. The Sheraton is very close to the airport and many Euro airline crews stay there.
 
Don't worry about EBBR. WORRY ABOUT DNMM!!!


THE REAL QUESTION IS WHERE ARE YOU STAYING IN LAGOS ?

Will you be guaranteed an armed escort to and from the hotel in DNMM ?
Does everyone have their shots up to date ?
Do you have an emergency medical plan, because under no circumstances should you ever let any of your crew members be treated there.

Don't take my word, go on the State department website and read what the State Department has to say.

Be careful and good luck.
