This hotel is centrally located. There is a bus/tram stop nearby that will take you directly to the airport for 4 euros, faster than a taxi. It is within walking distance to museums, like Rijksmuseum, etc. It is also within walking distance to all the flower market and most downtown locations. the hotel itself has a nice fitness room. The actual room was average for Marriott, not bad but average size. We had a family of two adults and one child and requested a two queen. Upon arrival they said they´d be happy to put us in a King with supplement, but alas! after we agreed, there was a 15 euro charge. I guess they charge you for most things in Ámsterdam, so I´d say it is common practice. As you can imagine, it rains a lot... By 8am all the umbrellas were taken. So if you need a nice big umbrela, complimentary from the hotel, you´ve got to be early. They rent bikes, which is very convenient!!!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience in the Amsterdam Marriott. We were glad to read that the location was great for you and your family to get around and that the Schiphol Sternet bus#197 from the airport to Leidesplein was both economical and convenient. These are local buses which travel four times an hour from 5 a.m. until midnight and takes approximately 40 minutes. And we agree, the fall weather this past month as brought a fair amount of rain but we are hopeful for a white Christmas and ice skating on the canals. We look forward to welcome you back to the Marriott again soon.
