Sometimes you have to burn points to make LEVEL 1 SkyMiles awards work and that truly was the case with this trip. For example:

I had the choice to spend 10k SPG points or 5k plus cash. Either one is a nicer option than spending money to pay for the room as you can see. I greatly value my SPG points so when I can do cash and points I often do.

There are so many nice things about the SPG Sheraton Amsterdam Airport Hotel at Schiphol not least of which is the location. To be able to walk out of security, a short walk through the covered terminal extension over the train entrances, then up a “gerbil tube” and you are there. That simplicity and nearness is worth a bunch. And there is the view (if facing the airport). Not too shabby either if you are an AVgeek like me.

As an SPG Platinum I was extended a complimentary suite upgrade as well as club access and my choice of either club breakfast the next day or full breakfast at the buffet. Very Nice and loyalty rewarded!

This suite was shaped like a “T” if you will with the room above to the left and the bedroom to the right. There was a welcome letter waiting but it was just a computer printout of hotel instructions. Helpful but not very personal. Both still and bubbly water was also provided free of charge.

Off of the living room area was a small half bath. Nice If you are using the suite as a meeting place so those attending do not need to use your private one.

Bed was a king and was comfortable and clean. Room was just fine and far enough away from the hallway (and at the end of the hallway) so we did not hear any noise. As far as airport noises they were very muted. They have done a good job insulating this hotel.

Our bathroom was large with both a shower and a tub. I am not much of a tub guy (nor is my wife) but still nice to have that much room to get ready. A big plus.

Overall I really liked the suite. I could go work on my laptop well away from the bedroom and not disturb my wife sleeping. The views were impressive and wifi speeds were just fine. Even our visit to the club was great with a few hot snacks and free drinks (sorry no photos). I cannot say a single bad thing about this stay and would in a heartbeat come back to this location. And that includes the outstanding full breakfast buffet. Just take a look:

We were rushing a bit in the morning as I did not know just how long it would take to clear security and get to our gate with all the construction ongoing at the airport. Had I known we would sail through in no time I would have lingered and sampled more of the goodies on the buffet. It really was top notch and delicious.

So while I did not like having to stay overnight and burn some valuable SPG points on my trip to be able to score LEVEL 1 Delta SkyMiles award pricing (see E7 posts), for this trip the results were just what I wanted and much more. I have always been very impressed with Amsterdam airport and the Sheraton at AMS is just a great choice if you want the convenience of being right at the airport with quick access to trains as well. – Rene

    I’m sorry but the room looks more than a bit white and plain to be considered a nice suite. The bathroom looks industrial, like what you might find at an airport lounge.
    Is the breakfast worth doing over the airport lounge or in-flight? I hate buffets because you always overeat.

    BTW, Delta closed its lounge in Guam. I also Just first Hawaiian first-class/international business on a 5 1/2-flight. Good wine, decent food and really good coffee but bad seats and horrible entertainment (lousy older movies and five or six music channels of poorly curated music) on an iPad mini. Really disappointed because everyone raves about Hawaiian. I just wish I could have gotten Delta miles on this. At least I used my Barclay’s card, so I’ll get some money back.

  5. This looks like a good option for overnights in AMS. It is worth $75 just for the breakfast buffet and club access for two people. While it is not in central AMS, the train at Schipol is close.

    I am greatly disappointed that Hotel Pultizer in central Amsterdam left Starwood. I stayed there a few times. It was a Luxury Collection boutique hotel overlooking the Prinzengracht. It cost the same amount of points as the Sheraton. I had the train ride to Amsterdam Central Station and the #2 tram ride down pat.

    The new W hotel opening this month is right on Dam Square. I hate Ws as a rule (overpriced and gaudy) but may try this one out because of its location. I hope bringing a W hotel to AMS is not the reason Hotel Pulitzer left the program.
