It's worth going to the hotel and seeing whether they might have the room ready earlier than official check-in time. For me that usually works out. And even if they tell me they need another hour I can decide what to do with that info... hang out nearby, or dump my luggage in their special luggage room (which most hotels should have) and go explore and come back much later.

As for coffeeshops, see this map and the reviews: http://www.coffeeshop.freeuk.com/

Exactly where is your hotel?

Because you will want to go there first.

Check on the room to see if it is ready and if not to dump your luggage.

There are so many good shops in the center. Few truly bad ones. The worst one I know of has been long closed.

As far as price? I doubt price is going to be a big issue if all you want is a gram or a joint for an hour or two.

But if you mention your hotel I am sure some seasoned stoner will steer you in the correct direction.

OK you have lots of close by choices.

But after an overnight flight nothing beats an early walk around the city.

The key is opening times. But since it will be closer to 10:30 before you go looking those should not be a big issue

Close by DeKuil aka 420 cafe and Betty Boop are places I spent some quality time.

Betty Boop always had a very friendly feel to me.That one opens early for sure.

As much as I like 420 it can get loud. I am "guessing" maybe 11 am for them?

the closest to you would be coffeeshop Voyagers ( best weed imo) but they dont open till around 11am, but the greenplace just down the canal from Voyagers opens up early like 8 am i think and then there is central coffeeshop that opens at 7, , , that a great hotel by the way, ask for a room on the first floor looking over the canal its the last room on the floor , window open ofr a nice smoke in the morning,, cant remember the room number but again its the last room on the 1st floor or same floor as bar and restuarant.

I like your posts!

Why would you ever stay at Doubletree instead of this place?

Harvey, if you are seriously asking about finding a hotel you need to start a new thread and give an idea of what you are looking for which would include most of all a $ budget.

Your question will get lost here
