Amsterdam Hotel Rewards Map

Amsterdam has 49 chain hotels in 9 major loyalty programs available for points. The hotels on my Google maps hotel rewards map are either in Amsterdam city or Amsterdam Schiphol Airport hotels. 

After creating several of these hotel rewards maps in the past week, one of the most time-consuming tasks is determining the reward rate range for Best Western Rewards and Hilton Honors hotels for the next year. There used to be a flexible search function to see a monthly calendar of BWR rates. I do not see that function available now.

One of the big changes in Amsterdam are several Best Western hotels in the city rebranded in 2017. Best Western Premier Hotel Couture was a great deal when rates were less than 50% of center city hotels and in the $60s when I stayed there in winter 2015. That hotel was a deal too when summer rates were high.

Ramada Apollo Rembrandtpark is my go to deal in Amsterdam for 2017 with Wyndham Rewards points.

Hilton Honors is even more erratic in its reward rates. Hampton Inn Amsterdam Center East ranges from 22,000 to 60,000 points depending on date. This basically means there is no way to pinpoint how expensive a hotel will be for any date within the high and low range as standard reward rates potentially change amounts frequently to align with the changes in published paid rates. This is an area that requires further study.

  1. I agree! Thanks from the frequent flyer community for a valuable resource! This will save me hours of work when I plan my next visit to Amsterdam.

  2. Ric:
    Stayed in Amsterdam last year, and used my IHG points for five nights at the Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam south. 20K points X 5 = 100K points. Great hotel, great value, excellent HIE breakfast. Conviently located in a residential neighborhood, but only 200 meters from the tram and the metro. Close to all conveniences. 15 minutes to downtown Amsterdam and only 15 minutes to the Airport. Its number 33 on your map, and if your looking for a mid priced hotel, peaceful, and like feeling like a local, enjoy traveling by public transportation, excellent value using your IHG points. (Rate was 230 Euros a night, great use of points).
    Final note a night at the Holiday Inn express by the airport is only 15,000 points, free shuttle, same great Breakfast.

  3. I appreciate the work you are putting into this, but it seems like you are duplicating Hotel Hustle for the most part (apart from Best Western which is not included there).

  4. @Steve T. Fortunately HIX Amsterdam South still at #33. Noticed I had missed two IHG hotels and added those to map. Also added two new Marriott hotels, Moxy and Residence Inn opening Jan 2018.

    Also updated article to include all hotels in text with links and notes on different reward night options.

  5. @Jadec – Hotel Hustle is great for dynamic searches in real time. There is a lot of info there.

    I checked a couple of cities and while all the hotels are listed, there is missing information for reward rates for many hotels when checking any specific date.

    Best Western is kind of important. I made a map of Poland Best Western hotels (not yet published). There are about as many Best Western hotels in Poland as all other major hotel loyalty program chains combined (excluding Accor Hotels).

  6. Thanks for all the work to pull this together.
    I noticed that HotelHustle is having problems with rates lately – you often don’t get the cash or points rates anymore…
    And I didn’t realize that NH hotels participates in Choice Privileges via PHG – that’s a great find. I like their hotels!
