“A Great Hotel in a Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

The greatest advantage to staying at a Marriott property is that they are consistently consistent! No surprises, no excuses. This property is located in a great area of Amsterdam and is convenient to streetcar (trams) travel, or canal travel to anywhere within the city. The hotel is clean, modern, and looks like it was built this year, when in fact it has been in existence for quite some time. The staff is excellent, the rooms are large and well appointed, the restaurants make you want to revisit them again and again. This is the Holiday season and they are busy with many social events and parties, yet even with the crowded lobby, the staff took the time to welcome me individually. I would stay here again any time I need to be in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Perhaps it was just the holiday revelers with a few too many eggnogs, but the rooms facing the squar...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

We have learnt over the years that when doing a weekend City break you need to stay somewhere very central, comfortable and with things the teenagers can do when they are bored of museums and walking. The Marriott fits that bill perfectly, opposite the bus stop from the airport, minutes from the museums, excellent service, loads of local restaurants and a gym the teenagers can use. We stayed over the weekend when both the UK and the Netherlands were hit by severe storms and the staff were really helpful with advice and checking flights and transport to the airport for us. The rooms are a little dated but comfortable, we had a view over the square which was great. I would def stay here again and would recommend it if you want a good central hotel with excellent service

Love the convenience of this hotel. It is located right off of the 197 Bus line which services the airport. Get off at the Liedsplien Stop and the hotel is right there. very active tourist spot on the weekends near Bulldogs the Amsterdam Casino and so on. Hotel is starting to show a bit of wear. Have stayed here numerous times on layovers as I love its proximity. I always get a room with balcony over looking the square. Last two stays were award nights.

Room Tip: "Rooms with balcony overlooking Lediesplien are awesome" "High rooms better"

Visited the Marriott for three nights in November for a city break. The hotel was very busy due to the MTV awards however the staff were excellent, very friendly and willing to make our stay special. The service on the Sunday was a bit slow due to the rush of people staying at the hotel and attending the MTV ceremony. But we were offered top ups for our drinks while we waited for food. No problems with service on other days. Hotel was very clean and is an excellent location for tourist attractions. Would definitely stay again

Dear Guest,

What a sensational time for a getaway to Amsterdam along with all the stars that came in November for the MTV European Music Awards. We were specially happy to hear that with all the excitement that our staff continued to provide excellent service and made your stay a special one. We look forward to welcome you back to the Marriott again soon.

Kind regards,
Meredith Opten

This is a standard 5 star hotel in every way. Nothing exceptional about it but it delivers what's intended to deliver. The rooms are somewhat new but a little outdated by todays new designs and standards. We stayed at it because we got an exceptionally low rate, Euro 169 per night otherwise I would prefer to stay at a more design oriented hotel. The rooms are comfortable but not luxurious. They offer most things that you expect to find in a Marriott. Most of the hotel guest were American and Asian. The location is superior and within a walking distance to everything you may need to walk to during your trip. I would only recommend this hotel if you get a good rate otherwise stay at something more authentic and less generic. We stayed at room 325 which is excellent and faces the Lidseplien square.

Room Tip: Get a room that is facing the Lidseplien and not the rear of the Hotel. Get an upper floor room as t...

If you're coming in from Schiphol the 197 bus marked Leidesplein drops you just up the road; as it turns onto Leidesplein you'll pass the Marriott and then see it in the rear window. €4 single. A short, even walk of a few minutes from the stop. Leidesplein is lively after dark, but it's well lit and policed. If you're arriving by car best of luck with the traffic. Either way, if you're new to Amsterdam keep an eye out for the mopeds zooming along in the cycle lanes. Accepted practice here.
Rijksmuseum a short walk away, canal tours a little further along, beautiful walks in Vondelpark behind the hotel and lots of quiet streets nearby for exploration on foot, or bike if you're up to it.
Easily the most welcoming check-in I've experienced. Large, comfortable lobby, but often busy. High floor request got me the sixth, with a view of the hotel across the street and part of the street out front. Standard size for Europe, clean and in decent repair. Firm bed, small work table, small bathroom with a shower/tub combi and the minimum of toiletries. No robe or slippers. Not sure if it was unique to my room but the extractor in the bathroom is the noisiest I've ever heard and permanently on; when I first opened the room door I thought someone was in the shower. Didn't bother me as I was out most of the time and I'm a heavy sleeper; as ever, YMMV.
Obligatory flat screen with lots of channels, enough storage for one for a week. The minibar has drinks and snacks and a small shelf for your own stuff. Small mercy, another Marriott that allows multiple devices on wifi, although the speed fluctuated. If it isn't comped you'll be stung; €19.95 per 24 hours if memory serves.
Gold also got access to the lounge. Standard spread at breakfast - as usual in Europe the hot options are limited to the holy trinity of bacon, scrambled egg and sausages - limited after breakfast, but the free drinks through the day are welcome and the lounge is spacious and has some very friendly staff. As with the wifi, though, if it's not comped I'd be loth to pay for it, unless I planned to drink them out of house and home.
Didn't try the restaurant or bar. Prices didn't look ridiculous for Europe but a quick look at a map - even Apple's - will light up with places to eat and drink in the area.
Downsides ? Quibbling largely. Flannels not replaced one day, the carpets in the elevators are a bit worn, the interior's uninspired. The only real niggle is that as with most Marriotts in Europe you'll leave thinking it was too expensive for what it offered, but that's the price you pay for a known chain in a good, central location.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for writing such a detailed description of your stay with us at the Amsterdam Marriott. We were honored to learn that you had the most welcoming check in you have ever experienced and that the location was a perfect combination for business and pleasure. Complimentary internet is available in the lobby and restaurant area so we hope on your next visit we can invite you to try our restaurant Midtown Grill for one of the best steaks in town.
