Should be enough time. Schipol Amsterdam is considered to be one of the easiest airports in the world to make connections so it's very efficient.

I think she is connecting in Frankfurt to go to Amsterdam. In any event we have connected from the US to elsewhere in Frankfurt several times, 3 at 1'30", always the same airline (Lufthansa). Never have had a problem. We do carry-on only.

Yes, we have one ticket from Boston to Amsterdam with change planes in Frankfurt. Hmm I tried so hard to word it correctly too. 90 mins in Frankfurt.

What a shame that you have to take a connecting flight when non-stops go from Logan to Schiphol on both Delta Airlines and KLM.

Ninety minute in Frankfurt should be fine. But, if for any reason it isn't, as long as you're all on one ticket, the airline (presumably Lufthansa) will be responsible for getting you to Amsterdam. There should be multiple flights a day from Frankfurt to Amsterdam, so you should be able to get there later the same day.

Amsterdam- Hotel l’Ambassade on the Herengracht Canal in Central Canal Ring area. It is a series of connected old merchant houses, charming.

Any interest in a charming B&B? We stayed 5 nights at The Collector B&B in Amsterdam last fall. It’s located in the Museumplein. Quiet neighborhood and walking distance to the Museums, major sites, and great restaurants. the-collector.nl
We would stay here again.

You're probably OK, one way or another. If you miss your flight, they'll do their best to put you on the next one that has space. Of course, if it's a super-busy time, space may be hard to come by, but this is a short hop with lots of alternatives.

Just don't have anything critical that needs to happen immediately upon your original scheduled arrival at your destination (like, a cruise ship departing right away). If you miss your connection, you might be a few hours late, or in a worse case, possibly the next day, but they should get you there.

We used to stay at Hotel Brouwer on Singel. It is now Hotel the Craftsman and looks more expensive. Location was great. Easy walk to station and other way to Museumplein (or short tram ride). It is an old merchant house right on the canal with great views.

Just to be clear, I hope you did not buy two single tickets.

So I guess you don't need the FRA info after all, but for future reference, Delta (flight from US) and KLM both use Concourse D of Terminal 2, so other than having to go through Schengen immigration, you will just be changing gates in the same concourse.

I bought multi city ticket.

Great! That's the best way to do it.
