My Marriott & Corendon Amsterdam AvGeek Journey!

Yesterday I wrote about an upcoming in a single day at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, and requested y’all if I ought to keep on the Sheraton Schiphol Airport (which appears good and handy) or the Corendon Schiphol Airport (which appears unremarkable, aside from the truth that it has a 747 parked out entrance).

Effectively, a number of readers introduced up an attention-grabbing level, so I’ve an replace about my determination. I really reworked my journey just a bit bit, and I’ll now be spending two nights in Amsterdam. Whereas I may redeem factors to spend two nights on the wonderful Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam having fun with the town, I’ll as an alternative be hopping round between two funds resorts that aren’t close to a complete lot, and I’m sort of excited. Let me clarify…

Corendon Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (Boeing 747 exterior)

I’ll first be spending an evening at the Corendon Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. Look, I simply can’t assist however keep at a lodge that determined to park a 747 in its yard, and that sells rooms with views of that airplane. I’m not anticipating the lodge to be outstanding, although I determine it’s value giving a shot, particularly since I’m arriving late at evening, so I gained’t be on the lodge for that lengthy.

If nothing else, I’m excited to have the ability to put up extra photos of an airplane when publishing Marriott content material, as that’s fairly darn cool. Base rooms at this lodge are fairly priced, and I paid underneath €100. As you’ll see, that is by far the much less attention-grabbing of the 2 properties that I’m staying at, although…

Corendon Amsterdam New-West (Boeing 737 suite)

Okay, so right here’s the place it will get actually enjoyable, I hope. I’ll even be spending an evening at the Corendon Amsterdam New-West, which is about 10 minutes from the airport. Base rooms at this property are even cheaper than on the different Corendon property, and the placement of this lodge doesn’t appear splendid for my functions.

Nonetheless, there’s precisely one purpose I’m staying at this lodge. I booked the property’s prime suite, which is the 737 suite. The suite is big, at 1,291 sq. ft, with a lot of the suite being… a Boeing 737 cabin and cockpit?!? How flippin’ cool is that this?

This must be some of the attention-grabbing lodge rooms on this planet, and I couldn’t assist however e book it. And actually, the pricing was surprisingly cheap, given what that is — my one evening is costing me €290, which is about what the St. Regis Deer Valley fees for an hour. 😉

Okay, so I’m very enthusiastic about this, although I’ve to confess I’ve two hesitations, which I’m positive I’ll overcome:

  • To place it delicately, I hope the plane cabin is totally sanitized between every keep (it’s in all probability not), as a result of I’m guessing many others aren’t approaching a keep on this suite as wholesomely as I’m
  • I’m excited to benefit from the plane cabin throughout the day, although I really feel prefer it’ll be sort of bizarre to sleep proper subsequent to an open 737 door, no?

Does anybody have extra of a way of what I ought to anticipate right here? Is the cockpit nonetheless totally intact? Is there any simulator alternative? Is there any strategy to make the expertise much more aviation themed? The lodge’s web site has surprisingly little details about what all of this really entails…

Two nights close to Schiphol Airport in random funds resorts wasn’t actually on my bingo card for an upcoming journey, however the aviation facet of this was too attention-grabbing to skip. I really like Corendon’s dedication to the aviation theme.

I’m not anticipating a complete lot from the primary property, aside from a view of a 747, whereas the second property ought to make for a really attention-grabbing keep. Keep tuned, as a result of I’ll after all have detailed evaluations.

Any predictions or ideas for these Corendon stays in Amsterdam?
