... Kaylie even drank her first Heineken beer! May 5 is Liberation Day in Holland - the day the Dutch celebrate the capitulation of Nazi Germany during World War II - and a day for crazy parties and lots of celebrating.
We also spent a full day perusing the Rijksmuseum which houses some very famous pieces of art. Troy was in his element, while after the first hour, Kaylie had had enough of the same ol' paintings and sculptures. There is some ...
... how best to get there. By this point we were beyond chilled and gasping for a coffee. We tried a bus that turned out not be covered by our transport pass and then waited on the wrong side of the road for the no 5 tram to Dam Square. We finally got to dam square and walked to Westerkirk and the Prinsengracht with Ann Franks House. There was a hideous queue for Ann Frank and it was freezing so went straight to have pancakes. Almost cried in relief when ...
... coffee and last chats before we said farewell to everyone except Henk and Dora, as tomorrow we head back to Amsterdam.
Note - the downside of reunions is that one must then leave again. That's the yukky bit. So hard to imagine we will not see them again for who knows how long. A bitter sweet moment of last hugs and stifled tears.
As if giving us a day to remember and filling us with wonderful food and drinks was not enough, the family ...
... my foster mom Mario had been here before and she told me that she liked it because the rooms were big enough so that you could comfortably open your suitcase to find things and pack them back in; was that ever the understatement of the year! At least for this room.
Go ahead and have a look at the picture. And yes, of course we used the jacuzzi!!
What a wonderful start for our holiday! ...
... few things about Amsterdam. My title says a lot. It truly is a city of canals and bicycles. There are more than sixty-two miles of canals and 1,500 bridges in the city of Amsterdam. The canals were originally developed to stimulate trade, but they also create the ambiance of the city, whether you are walking around along the water, crossing the bridges, watching the seagulls, or sitting in a cafe'.

Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Amsterdam Schiphol Hoofddorp
Should be a good hotel - but the staff have a real attitude problem!
The rooms are fine - clean and serviceable.
However the staff seem to have a superiority complex! the shuttle bus to & from the airport is useful. The restaurants are expensive as is the bar.
Not one of Crowne Plaza's best!
Recently stayed in this hotel and found its quite good, just with few problems. There is nothing special about this hotel, but in summary it gives good balance for value & money.
Whats that smell?
I booked this hotel because it was supposedly close to the airport. While it is not far (< 2 mi.), be prepared to wait up to 45 minutes for the shuttle. It never seemed to be on time, and the drivers had attitude problems. We asked for a room with a view and were pleased with the 90 deg. panoramic view. But the room was funky smelling and there were cigarette burns on the bed, it did not seem clean. The rest of the room was nice. If you want good food, go out. The room service food was mostly frozen or pre-prepared, never fresh to order. Unfortunately, there are no conveniently located restaraunts. The only plus was the excellent fitness center, pool and sauna. The next time I want to stay near Schipol Airport, I will surely stay at the Sheraton.
After reading good reports on this site, we decided to book a club room at this hotel for 1 night on December 27th. Having access to the club lounge with complimentary drinks, as well as breakfast seemed well worth the extra charge.
Stayed only 1 night in November but it was very nice. Locations was somewhat misleading, but still good as they have a great shuttle service to the airport. From there you can simply take the train anyplace if desired. Concierge was extrmemely helpful when we wanted to go into town. Taxi from there is roughly 50 euros but the train was 3 euros roundtrip to center station. Then catch the shuttle from the airport to/from your hotel.
For business travelers only!
We were originally fooled by the hotel's name thinking it was located in Amsterdam. But the truth is that this hotel is located a 30-40 minute taxi drive away from Amsterdam in a smaller suburb known as Hoofdorp. It is NOT a hotel for travellers wishing to experience the city of Amsterdam! The taxi ride from the hotel to Amsterdam costed us 50 Euros. We would have much rather put that money into a hotel closer to center of the city. Strictly speaking about the hotel though, it was a business class hotel with proper facilities and amenities. The room was very clean and service was good.
For Business Only
I have stayed at this hotel several times on business. trips I stay here because it is convenient to my meetings. I can walk to them. The rooms are large and comfortable with internet access as well as an internet kiosk in the lobby. There is only one restaurant and a small health center/pool. It is not located near restaurants or the airport. (There are two hotels within walking distance of the airport) But, having said all that, this is a very comfotable hotel with spacious rooms if business brings you to this area.
Nice airport hotel
We stayed here for 1 night coming back from Italy and going home. This was the least expensive hotel we stayed at for our 2 week stay in Europe. I was not disappointed. The room was nice and spacious. It is not located beside the airport so you have to take the free shuttle. When selecting the hotel, I was comparing with the new Sofitel, the Sheraton and the Hilton. All three were much more expensive so I was wondering why I should waste some Euros. After all, Crowne Plaza has good standards.
Great hotel when you have a morning flight!
We stayed at the Crown Plaza Schipol on the last night of an 11 day Amsterdam vacation. The free hotel shuttle leaves for Schipol at the top and bottom of the hour. From the airport it leaves at a quarter til and quarter past the hour and the ride only takes about 10 minutes. Room was large with a desk, sofa. Queen sized bed was okay. High speed internet terminal in the room was available for a reasonable 15 per day. We received a token for a free welcome drink upon arrival. The pool was nothing like on their website, about half the size. In the morning there was complimentary coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice available in the lobby from 5:30 until 8:00. Not convienent to downtown but if you have business in the area or an early morning flight this is the place.
Club is class
got a good deal on the room price , club room for standard room. Club really is class, club lounge (free drinks) great breakfast in comfort. worth paying for.central location, pool only tiny but who goes to Amsterdam to swim? pay a bit more and enjoy the good life.
