The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Amsterdam Centraal Station has the convenience of a centralized location with the luxury of a five-star business hotel to boot.
DoubleTree's approach to sustainability can be relied upon to deliver social benefits and lead the way among ecotourism for chain hotels. The hotel's green efficiency is evident in everything from the dual flush toilets and aerated showers to the green roofing scheme that attenuates rainwater flows. The energy-efficient-building design features automated shading, highly airtight ventilation, CFL lighting, and inverter-driven pumps and fans to provide variable volume systems.
Among the modest luxuries at this sleek business hotel are a book lending program courtesy of the neighboring public library, a ground-floor restaurant, great views of the cityscape through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and a rooftop bar that packs quite a crowd at night time. Bikes are also available in the lobby for guest use. Best of all is the hotel's central location on the edge of the historic district with the rest of the city accessible through the Centraal Station close by.
