It looks like suicide, but it is just artistic!

During my stay in NL during the week I have the pleasure to stay in a brand New Hotel, the Crowne Plaza Hotel Amsterdam - South, just a few meters away from the APG office!

The hotel is located at the George Gershwin Street. And by following that style all the rooms have huge photos of this American composer. Also elsewhere in the building are a lot of references to music. In the nice atrium are many pictures of instruments.

Gershwin is not the only American reference. The bar of the hotel is called Manhattan. And in the lobby I found a huge picture of New York’s 42nd Street – Grand Central subway station. Actually the place where I started my journey to Amsterdam... Another American reference is less nice: the hotel is managed like it is in the US.

The atrium!
Almost everything is in English, even the disclaimer one has to sign in order to use the gym. The hotel apparently does not respect the language of its location. For someone who had looked forward to be emerged in Dutch for a few days this was a bit of a disappointment.
