An amazing hotel with staff that makes sure you get the best experience possible. Room service was brought to me by an employee with the best smile and lots of enthusiasm. Sushi was to die for! The bed was perfect as well. As someone who sleeps in hotels often, I will for sure remember this one.
I cant say enough about this place! It’s mainly the people that work there that make your stay great, make you feel safe and like family! Huge shoutout to Heim and Hatim!! Story time: The reason I do that is because the first night I was in Amsterdam I took an Uber back to the hotel and accidentally left my phone in the Uber. As soon as I realized I did this I went downstairs to the front desk to ask for help. Hein helped me as best he could. First we tried to call out via hotel desk to get a hold of my mother (because she had the FindMyIphone and could track it). That didn’t work because hotel phone wouldn’t dial out. Then he let me try to login to Uber which wouldn’t let me because it sent a code to my phone and of course I didn’t have it. Then he let me use his PERSONAL phone to dial my mother and luckily she answered, tracked it down with an address, and Hein got the taxi driver Hatim to take me to that address… We get there and going around the neighborhood looking for the Uber car which apparently has to have blue license plates. Cant find it. Knocks on doors. No answer. Hatim calls my mother again and she tracks it to just down the road. We go there. Find the Uber car that drove me (only one with blue plates parked too) and we start buzzing the doorbell. (Though we were before) He was brave like me! I love it! Though of course no one answers the door. We wait around a bit to see if neighbors pop out and we can ask them if Uber driver really lives there but it was so late that no one did. So only other choice was go back to hotel and then go to Uber office in the morning. Next morning, with Hamid’s (concierge) help I go to office, Uber said all they could do was call him and message him about the situation and to tell him (Uber driver) to call them at the Uber office or hotel about it (Uber people were horrible and no help at all even when I said I got the plate number and knew where he lived!). They basically said it’s all in the air because I was the one that left it in the car. I understand that but at the same time I have turned in like 8 iPhones and at least 2-3 AirPods into lost and found at various places before. Stuff happens you know? Uber wasn’t nice about that at all but the staff at Apollo Marriott were super nice about my situation, genuinely cared, and tried to help me best way possible. That’s what a Marriott does. They treat you like family and I absolutely LOVE them. Marriott for life!!! Uber driver ends up calling the hotel when I’m not there and gives them the message that he was looking around for the phone and couldn’t find it. Thank the Lord Hein got the phone number of the Uber driver for me or someone did (I wasn’t there) so I call him. He tells me it’s not in his car. I tell him look I have FindMyIphone and it pinpoints your address and that’s how I found your car and license plate. He says, fine I come to hotel and you can look in car. Great. Hein then calls my mother to keep FindMyIphone on for current status of phone. She sees that it’s now in between where he lives and the hotel. Great, I just know it’s in his car. He arrives. Hein stands by me to make sure the guy is not about to kidnap me. I have my flashlight ready and I check every nik and cranny. Find the phone in between the seat crack and all the way down. Still on Heins phone with my mother I tell her I have it now and I thank Hein (my superhero) and all the staff how very thankful I am for their help, because without them and my mother, I would have never got it back… Literally they are angels on this earth! This will be something I never forget for the rest of my life and will always make me choose Marriott over any other brand hotel (even if it’s more expensive) because they truly genuinely care (and don’t just act like it) and go WAY ABOVE AND BEYOND!) and should always hire people like Hein and Hatim. (They are a true asset to Marriott and deserve a raise!). Now for the regular Hotel review stuff: Checking in was flawless and smooth. He went over everything and was very clear. Room was good, a little small, but it’s Europe so that’s normal. The hallways and even the dining areas have a really cute aesthetic. They have a fireplace that’s on at night and sometimes a jazz night. Very fun! Also outdoor seating by the water which would be very pretty in the summer (I went in February and I don’t do cold weather.) Very close to the RAI so if you need a hotel close to there I highly recommend! Everyone should stay here! The bartender was so very sweet to me and informative about the snacks and wine they serve. Super great customer service. If you don’t get maid service you get a 5Euro voucher you can use at the restaurant! I will for sure be coming back here whenever I am in town for a trade show! Because I know THEY will always have my back! Thank you Apollo, Tribute, and Marriott and all the people there! I cant give enough thanks for my amazing stay😘!!!
We spent three nights at the Apollo for a weekend get-away in Amsterdam. The hotel is located in a nice neighborhood. We walked a little over a mile into the city center twice, while also taking a cab one day. The hotel is decorated beautifully with a friendly staff. The rooms are comfortable, clean and plenty spacious.
