For those athletic-minded travelers seeking an upscale Amsterdam abode far from the city's hustle, bustle and red light raucous, this Hilton is a savvy choice. In this case, "far" means only a 5-minute tram ride to Old Amsterdam, and another 5 minutes for the Red Light District and Dam Square.
This large and modern property retains a business/convention vibe. Common areas are spacious and practically furnished, guest rooms simply yet tastefully decorated. The entire property is smoke free and WiFi internet is available property-wide (for a steep stipend of €22/day).
Connected to the hotel is the Personal Health Club, a small, separately operated gym offering sweat sessions to Hilton guests for €17.50/day. Hilton Honors guests (Silver, Gold, and Diamond) get free access. The single-floor fitness center stocks the usual suspects of equipment in an appealing environment. Weight equipment is more substantial than cardio, but there's plenty of both to go around. Classes are offered as well for travelers in need of some group sweat therapy, including yoga, pilates, and spinning! These are rare finds in the hotel world, so take advantage!
Joggers should skip the indoor treadmills and pick up the wonderful paths meandering through Vondelpark (about 5-10 minutes jog away).
Hilton houses an in-house bar for local beer and food specials. The Half Moon Lounge was decorated by Ralph Lauren and boasts a fantastic view of the nearby marina.
