“A Nice hotel but not for Congress attendees”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Crowne Plaza Schiphol is a very nice hotel as regards the facilities and hospitality of the staff. I am their priority club member as well, however as it is located outside Amsterdam in Hoofddorp, for any one coming to attend any conference or congress being held at Amsterdam RAI should try to find some hotel in city center as every time you need to go to congress center or Amsterdam city center you need to purchase the train ticket worth 9.20 Euros. The transport passes which the conference management usually provides is valid only for Metros, Trams and buses and not for the trains.

Room Tip: Club room will be enough for a family of 4, whereas standard double for a couple and standard single...

On arrival in the room empty shampoo bottle and papers of the previous guest was still in the room. Clearly no attempt was made to clean the room. On the Posetive side the staff is friendly and helpful.

If you are Platinum Elite, Stay AWAY from this hotel.
Before Priority Club became IHG, this hotel offered Free breakfast and lounge access to Platinum member. When I checked in this Month, I expected my usual benefits.
To my biggest suprise, not only did this hotel remove lounge access but it also removed the free breakfast. Funny enough, they gave me a letter upon my arrival "explaining my benefits for platinum" which basically said the only thing I was entitled to was free internet and extra points. What a bargain!! And to top it off, they use to have Nespresso machine in the club lounge room (dont know why they call it club lounge because you dont even have access to the club lounge!!!), but not anymore. When I went downstairs to see if I could have one, they made me understand I was not qualified to have one.

So to sum it up, you wont get anything at this hotel for your platinum status. They dont care anymore. At least with the other competitors, when I reach status I get to always enjoy the lounge and free breakfast in the morning, not with the Crowne Plaza Schiphol.
Also the room are outdated, I needed binoculars to watch the tv in my room (who still has 22 inches tvs!!!), the gym is so tiny that even by myself it seams crowded!

An adequate hotel if you need to stay near the airport. Not a lot of outlets for the connected business traveler in a regular room. The restaurant was not so tidy. The floor could use a sweep between diners- perhaps that's why there were seemingly a lot flies buzzing about in the restaurant and lobby. Not my first choice for a hotel in Amsterdam.

This is a top notch hotel with a shuttle to and from Schipol. i always stay either here or the HI Express close to the airport. This Crowne Plaza is one of the top properties in the chain. All the amenities you would expect and excellent friendly service. The prices are reasonable for an airport location and the shuttle travels to and from the airport every 30 minutes. Stay here and you won't be disappointed.

Very clean with a close proximity to Schipol. Service and rooms very good. Not close to downtown Amsterdam - about 20 minutes away. So - I wouldn't stay here if I was visiting as a 'tourist'. But perfectly fine for business trips.

Room Tip: Great place to stay if you are doing business around Hoofddorp. If you are traveling for pleasure...

My husband and I chose this hotel for our anniversary because it was a very reasonable price as it was the weekend. We were given an upgrade because it was our anniversary, with a little bottle of Prosecco which was a lovely touch. The concierge was very helpful and gave us a ride to the airport to sort out train tickets which made access to Amsterdam straightforward - a 10 min walk from the hotel to the station, then 20 mins to Amsterdam Centraal. You can buy tickets at the machine with coins or chip and pin cards though, and access the platform from the closer end by the underpass which saves a bit of the walk. We had a lovely swim in the pool and breakfast was included in our deal and was really good. We did have an issue with our room at one point but the hotel staff dealt with it really pleasantly. The only negative was the cost of the restaurant. We ate there one night because we were tired, but made sure we ate in town the next night! Overall, it was a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Can hear the trains on that side, but they are not too loud to be worrying.
