American Hotel or Other

Anyone stayed in the American. Is it central enough. Or is Swissotel better. Any of these have shuttle service from airport.

Thanks.

both hotels are top end of the market, I guess you have noted the reviews on this site , both are in the top 20.

The American is off Leidsepleine Area, and Swissotel on Damrak , close to Dam Sq. Both are central in terms of relative distances in Amsterdam.

The connex shuttle bus run every 30 during peak times and stops at or very close to both hotels.

nashtrash , its a hotel shuttle bus , but a public one , as opposed to one owned by an hotel or hotel chain.

Very reliable service, makes several stops as listed on the time table at the bus stop near the taxi rank at the airport.

Its Euro 13 now I believe.

Mr. Boxer, Thank -You! You are very helpful with your posts. The shuttle sounds like the perfect fit for us as we are getting in very early after an red eye. Need to dump the luggage at the hotel until check in.

Sorry that you have to take abuse for being a "local Expert", like that you let people make their own decesions and give the facts.

Travel88: We stayed in the American over new years this year and were quite pleased. We did quite a bit of walking and the location is wonderful. Try to have at least breakfast in the Art Deco cafe. It is a great room.
