Marriott is to open a
318-room Renaissance property near Schiphol International Airport in 2009. It
will be the second Renaissance-branded hotel from Marriott to open in the
greater Amsterdam area.
Rooms at the Renaissance Amsterdam Airport
hotel will be “spacious” and provide guests with high-speed internet access,
mini-bar, flat screen TV and 20-hour room service.
There will also be a restaurant serving
breakfast, lunch and dinner, a bar, lobby lounge, business centre, gym and
shops. Large business meetings or social events will be accommodated by a 4,627sqft meeting room, or
alternatively guests will have the choice of one of 12 smaller meeting rooms. Said Arne Sorenson, Marriott’s chief financial
“Schiphol is the largest international
gateway to Amsterdam and one of Europe’s most important airline hubs. We are
confident that this Renaissance hotel will be a welcomed addition to
Amsterdam’s hospitality infrastructure, especially for those doing business in
the vicinity of the airport.”
The hotel will be situated near the airport
and there will be regular bus services running to the city centre 15 kilometres
away. Other Marriott Hotels in Holland’s capital include the Courtyard Amsterdam
Airport, the Amsterdam Marriott Hotel, and the Rennaisance Amsterdam Hotel.
