“American style comfort in the heart of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

This hotel is wonderfully located in old Amsterdam. It is a short walk from the main train station (though it can be a challenging walk with luggage given the bicycles, people and trams that must be dodged). The hotel is on a quiet street near a canal and good restaurants, and it is a relatively short walk to many of Amsterdam's attractions. Our room was very comfortable with a king size bed and modern furnishings and bathroom facilities. The price, given the location and the quality of the room, was quite reasonable. The staff was quite friendly, though the check-in area is often quite busy given the popularity and the size of the hotel.

Great location just steps from central station on a quiet street with lots of character. Rooms were very nice, comfortable beds, nice bathroom. Fridge was stocked with items for pay so if you moved anything you are automatically charged. Wifi is only free in the lobby and very confusing to get logged on from the room. Food was outrageously expensive so we were forced to eat out for every meal.

Great location, only blocks from the train station and very easy to find! Breakfast and snacks in the lounge were great and had a good variety. Staff was friendly and room was comfortable.
Will definitely return to this hotel!

We were two adults and two children ages 10 an 8 and we were very satisfied with this hotel situated close to many attractions, great restaurants and central station. Our room was very spacious, comfortable and beautifully appointed. The breakfast was very well done: smoked salmon, pickled herring, mackerel, eggs, bacon, sausages, local mini pancakes, fruit, coffee machine, mineral waters and juices, as well as your continental breakfast usuals of breads and cereals. The staff was friendly and helpful. The concierge gave us good information on how to get to see hard to get into museums. We dined at the hotel restaurant a couple of evenings and found it to be quite good, a hit with the children and the extra 10% discount is nice. We had Executive Lounge privileges and this was helpful - I used the computer and printer to get tickets to a museum while having a nice glass of wine.

My husband and I really enjoyed this hotel. We are Platinum Elite members, and always try to stay with the Marriott family hotels. The Navigators at this hotel were so friendly and helpful. We were so pleased every time that we asked them for dinner recommendations, directions or an umbrella. Lourence is an asset for this hotel - he was so professional and helpful. It's near Central station, many Metro stops, Dam plaza and lots of restaurents. We were able to walk to the other side of the center of town (Van Gough museum) in 30 minutes. The concierge lounge was well appointed and large. The beds were so comfy! Our only complaint was the noise level from the street. We were on the 3rd floor, facing the St. Nicholas Hotel/Renaissance Conference Center. The street noise was so loud that we thought that the window was actually broken. If we weren't so jetlagged the first night and hadn't passed out then we would have switched rooms. BTW - we live in the city and near a main road, so we are used to noise. The noise level was inexcusable!! The interesting thing is that other Marriott Hotels that we've stayed in automatically put us in a quiet room realizing that we are Elite members and staying 5 nights!!
This Renaissance didn't take any of that into consideration. Unfortunately, we were here during a big convention and the Europe football cup so we couldn't move. The noise was our only complaint - but a big one!
We had breakfast in the hotel on sunday morning because the lounge was closed. Real nice buffet. They need to figure out a better place to order omelettes because the current logistics don't work. However, the man making the omelettes was very efficient. we also had dinner at Savinis (italian restaurant right down the street), Seasons (a short walk from the hotel) and Cafe Loetje (30 minute walk) which I would highly recommend all 3. The Cafe Loetje is a steak house that is chaotic and fun!! Quite an experience, excellent value and a good steak. Check it out on Yelp - that's how we found it and the description was accurate! I'm glad that we were able to experience it.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that faces inside the courtyard and a high floor. You will regret having a low fl...

I can only report on the room I had. Small is the word... no room to walk at end of bed! Curtains didn't block out lights and street outside was noisy. Wardrobe light was stuck on. Sink cracked... five star? Well not here. 20 euros for internet access.
