Amsterdam: Marriott or Renaissance?

Jump to last reply

I have friends that have an 18 hour layover in Amsterdam on their way home from Italy at the beginning of November (~5PM to 10AM), and want to use points to stay at one of Marriott properties:

http://www.marriott.com/search/compareHotels.mi?showMapForCompare=false&vsCompareHotels=AMSRD_AMSNT&compareSubmit=&compareHotels=AMSRD%3A1%3A0.3&compareHotels=AMSNT%3A2%3A0.8

They won't be trying to see any museums, just wandering around that evening, having dinner and some drinks. Which of these two properties would you recommend? The Renaissance is very near the central train station and the Marriott is near Leidseplein, which I understand has a great deal of nighttime entertainment (I'm guessing they'll be staying up late to make as much of their short stopover as possible). For that reason, they're probably leaning towards the Marriott, but please correct us if you think the Renaissance is a better choice.

FWIW, they usually choose taxis over public transportation from the airport, so that probably isn't a factor. Thanks!!
