As usual this hotel was excellent. Have stayed here several time throughout the years while travelling with my husband. The rooms have been updated, again! And this time they actually added more lighting over the mirror in the bathroom, which is typically a pet peeve of mine with the Hilton chain. You've got to love a hotel that keeps its personnel. Upon arriving and stepping out of the taxi, we were greeted by a doorman who recognized my husband and welcomed us back to Amsterdam. Upon checking in we found we had been given a canal view room on the 8th floor and had access to the Executive Floor (my husband is a Hilton Honors member). The Executive lounges are different in Europe than they are in the U.S. The wine and drinks are unlimited and free and a very nice array of appetizers is provided. The gem of the Executive Lounge here has to be Stephania. Not only is she professional, but very personable and welcoming. I can't rave enough about her. We also had the priviledge of chatting with the head chef, who hails from LA, but has been a long time resident in Amsterdam, and an even longer time employee for the Hilton. Although the hotel's location is a few miles from the city center of Amsterdam, it is only a block away from the train tracks. Several train pass options are available (one way, all-day, etc.) and can be purchased from the train operator. It's a quick trip into the city center and you'll pass The Van Gogh Museum, The Rijksmuseum, and a great street market. The negative about this more isolated location is the lack of nearby restaurants. This does not bother us because the train is so convenient and inexpensive.
