Hard on the heels of the opening of the Andaz Amsterdam, Hyatt announced its plans for a Hyatt Place at Schipol Airport scheduled to open later this year. Yesterday they announced that a third hotel was being planned, the Hyatt Regency Amsterdam.
Scheduled to open in 2015, the property will have 215 rooms and 15 suites.
Located further out from the city centre than the Andaz, it will be some distance from the Central Station of Amsterdam. It will be in the east of the city, an area I don’t know really.
Central Station is at the top centre of the map above.
The press release description does tend to suggest it’s half a mile from the closest tram stop:
Hyatt Regency Amsterdam will be located in central Amsterdam between Sarphatistraat and Spinozastraat, and will be surrounded by the Singelgracht canal. The hotel will be in close proximity to many of Amsterdam’s museums, including the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, the Scheepvaart Museum, and the Stedelijk Museum. The hotel will be less than half a mile from the Weesperplein metro stop and is close to the ring road, which connects all parts of Amsterdam to the national road system.
Amsterdam appears to be turning in to a matress run destination – or at least it will be in 2015
