On this trip to Amsterdam, we decided to use our stock of Marriott rewards points to pay for our room. Since we were planning to stay at the Marriott Renaissance Amsterdam Hotel when we arrived and also at the end of our driving tour of the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg, we chose a location right in the heart of Amsterdam.
No, the hotel wasn’t charming, it wasn’t eclectic, it wasn’t “European” in feel, but what is WAS, was efficient, very clean, comfortable and luxurious in feel, and that was what we wanted after a long flight to a large cosmopolitan city like Amsterdam.
We could hear the voices of Americans in the main bar area, confirming that the hotel hosts many business travelers as well as tourists. This particular hotel also hosts groups who plan to board one the many cruise ships that leave from Amsterdam, so believe me, this is your typical large Marriott hotel experience.
