Airport hotels may have a much more transitory nature attached to them, but the newly opened Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is looking to leave an impression even non-guests will find hard to forget. Replacing the old Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, which opened in 1972 and closed its doors in November, the hotel is the brainchild of Dutch architecture firm Mecanoo and British interior design company The Gallery HBA, who have both created a head-turning property thanks to its colorful reptile-like facade that features diamond-shaped windows and a 42-meter-high glazed roof. All of its 433 rooms boast an elegant contemporary design with facilities that include a 40-inch HDTV, free Wi-Fi, as well as a digital check in feature for guests. For those in need of relaxation after a long-haul flight, the hotel provides more than just F&B services, having made available Hilton’s global spa concept, eforea spa.
“The airport hotel concept was born in 1959, with the opening of Hilton San Francisco Airport,” said Rob Palleschi, global head of full service brands for Hilton Worldwide. “Innovation is in our blood—from being the first hospitality company to install televisions in guest rooms to introducing digital check-in with room selection via the Hilton HHonors app—and that pioneering spirit lives on as our brand nears its 100th anniversary. The new Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is all about challenging expectations and we look forward to giving guests a new type of airport hotel experience.”
