Just back from a long weekend in Amsterdam staying in the city centre Crowne Plaza. The hotel has a fantastic location in Amsterdam 300 metres from Central Station an right next to the main city centre.
I stayed in a club room, huge bed and a lovely room, views arent all that great from the rooms otherwise fine.
Had breakfast in the hotel, very extensive selection though expensive at 24 Euro each, but you can always sneak a few things for your lunch :-)
Didnt eat in the restaurant (see other restaurant reviews)
Staff were fantastic especially Samantha on reception on arrival, first class.
Also has a nice little gym to work off thise Stroopwaffles!
I always like to review the running possibilities from my hotel reviews, difficult running from here due to the location, danger of being killed by Bike, moped, tram,. rickshaw, bus etc etc.
Area along the water behind the central station is OK, but still best away from the busy rush hour.
alternative is to make your way to Vondelpark where there are 3 set runs (1.5, 2.5 and 3.5 miles) without the bulk of the traffic (bikes still an issue!) The runs are mapped out on the wall next to the ASICS shop at the main entrance.

Dear valued guest,

Many thanks for your review on the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre. I am delighted to see your nice comments on the hotel and its staff. Samatha was very pleased to read your note about her.
The hotel is indeed centrally located and provides easy access to all the major Amsterdam sights.
As we are a City Centre location and the hotel is evenly high with the Neighbours the views are limited. The rooms facing the street have most views but one might experience somewhat more street noise.
Great to see you went running while in Amsterdam. I am sure our future guests appreciate your comments and running trail.
