A February 2004 trip
to Amsterdam by bobthequiz
Quote: I flew EasyJet from Stansted to Schipol and took a cab to the wonderful Art Deco 'American Hotel'. Centrally located for both museums and nightlife, this hotel is a national treasure. The American Bar is lined with celeb photos taken in the bar and is a great place to finish an evening.
If you must... then a brisk walk through the red light district, if only to say you've been there.
Hotel | "Crowne Plaza Amsterdam The American"
Our room was large, with views over the Liedesplein, but we weren't disturbed by the trams.
I wouldn't bother with the hotel breakfast, which is a bit overpriced at €15, particularly as it's only a 15-minute walk to the pancake shops at the flower market.
