We stayed in the hotel as a base for business based around Amsterdam. It is superbly located for access to Dam Square and Central Station so a 4 euro ticket from Schipol Airport to Central Station is easy. From the Station it takes 5 minutes to reach the hotel and is virtually straight across from the Station.
The hotel is as expected for a Marriot though I believe it to be overpriced though it falls in line with other hotels in the area. The reception was quick and efficient and the staff are helpful and take time to answer ant queries that you may have. There are 4 lifts to the rooms using your room card to activate the lift. The walk to my room on the 8th floor was a little quirky as you negotiate the corridors. My room was 817 second to last on the floor. The room had all expected facilities and was well presented. The Air Con was very good at controlling room temp. The bed was comfy and afforded me a good sleep.
I had access to the executive lounge which again was well laid out with beverages and nibbles available through the day up to 9 pm and breakfast was included if you have access to the lounge so no need to pay for breakfast.
There is a valet parking service for your car if you have one which I did though it cost 50 euro a night actually more than the car hire 45 euros per day. This extra was added to the room.
I liked the hotel though it may be out of a lot of budgets and be wary of the extras, though you couldn't get a better location.
On another note we had booked for 4 nights and I needed to stay a further 2 nights, when I inquired I was informed that the two extra nights would cost me over 1400 euros as they only had suites available my existing rate was 225 per night! so I don't believe it is good value for money though I like the hotel
