The new Hilton hotel Amsterdam Airport Schiphol opens its doors to its first guests today (December 17), offering 433 rooms, 23 conference rooms, a ballroom and a total area of 43,000ft², making it the largest hotel at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
The hotel was developed by Schiphol Real Estate and designed by the Dutch architectural firm Mecanoo, with the interior designed by London-based The Gallery HBA. The hotel is located at the main entrance to the airport’s arrival and departure halls, contributing to Schiphol’s image as a ‘preferred location’ and making it a premium business location. A covered walkway connects the new Hilton hotel directly to the airport terminal.
The Hilton has an iconic cubed form and diamond-patterned façade, making it an impressive landmark at Schiphol. The atrium, with its glass roof at a height of 138ft, forms the dynamic heart and main meeting point of the hotel, consisting of the lobby and lounge. The glass roof and bright white balustrades bring the daylight deep into the building. From the galleries, guests can enjoy a spectacular view of the lobby and lounge.
The ‘Dutch Touch’ takes centre stage in the interior design by The Gallery HBA, which was inspired by Dutch cultural heritage, history, traditions and typical characteristics of the Netherlands. This theme continues throughout the hotel and the result is a contemporary, innovative interior with a natural and harmonious color scheme.
A selection of original masterpieces from the Schiphol Group art collection can be found at various locations in the hotel. The works include pieces by contemporary Dutch artists such as Corneille, Anton Heyboer, Armando, Ger van Elk, Jan Cremer and René Daniels.
The new Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is a development and investment project of the Schiphol Hotel Property Company (a wholly owned subsidiary of Schiphol Real Estate) and will be managed by Hilton Worldwide.
