We are flying from Rome to Amsterdam on a Wednesday night during spring break. Our flight arrives in AMS at about 10 p.m. Our flight to the US leaves Friday at 1:00 p.m. We scheduled flights this way so we could also take our boys (ages 13, 15) to see AMS along with Rome.
Right now I have two rooms booked at the Doubletree using about 240,000 Hilton points - which is a lot. I am now reconsidering and would like to stay somewhere else. I have thought a couple different ideas. One, stay the first night at an airport hotel since we come in so late, then get an early start in the a.m. into central Amsterdam, then stay somewhere centrally located that evening.
Or stay both nights in a central location.
I have seen at the Hotel Sebastian (which receives good reviews on Trip Advisor) that we could get one room with 4 twin beds for not a terrible price.
I would prefer to spend about $400 US dollars per night - I also do not know what would be the best location for basically one full day of sightseeing. As it is one day, I think location may be key.
