....., just because I had a wonderful, amazing, great stay at this Crowne Plaza in Amsterdam.
I am not the kind of person to write reviews or comments when I travel. I travel a lot let me tell you. a minimum of 170 nights a year. I have seen excellent hotels and some that are not excellent, to put it in nice words. But this one is amazing. Not fancy or breathtaking, that is not what I look for when I travel. It is just the pure symbiosis of spacious rooms (that are very well maintained, spacious as I had just a standard room, the beds are to die for) and very polite, honest and kind staff. At check in I was warmly welcomed by a very polite young lady (Julia, I believe) she explained everything with a constant smile and even managed to find my priority number. She even told me I was a Platinum member, and right away gave me free Internet and a free drink for at the bar..., what about that?? I loved it. Plus an other staff member brought me to the room and was funny as hell. Never in my life I laughed so much at a check in and enjoyed it so much. Just great staff they have at that hotel. It felt like being among friends.
I went to the bar at one night and it was good too. Steven, a guy with a fancy haircut, was very polite and would make a great barkeeper all over the world. A shame they did not have more international drafts, but hey once in Holland you should drink Heineken anyways.
It was a gift to come back after work and return to the hotel, people greeted me by name, welcomed me as soon as I set a foot into the lobby. One morning I asked for a wake up call, but I was so deep a sleep that I did not hear it, and they even came up to knock at the door, to make sure I would wake up. Once in Singapore they made me miss my flight because of that, but here just great service. The connections to the airport are just perfect, within 10 minutes and a train later you are at the airport. I did not try the gym, but a dude at the bar told me it was brand new. Breakfast was great, all you need not to fancy and will give you a great start into your day. All in all it was great and just fun to stay there. They really have people there that make a difference (I hope the management knows), plus its a nice hotel as well. If I might get a chance to go back to Amsterdam one day, the Crowne Plaza will be my choice......, well this is why I had to write this review....! My first and last I guess, but worth sharing with the world I thought.
