Just a quick rave from me for the staff at the Hotel Pulitzer in Amsterdam. The hotel is nice and it’s the people that deliver a great experience.
First of all, they let me check in at 9 am. I was fully expecting to store my bags and walk around town grundgy for five or six hours.
I asked for a rollaway bed to accommodate some additional family members; they upgraded me to a suite.
A plate of Dutch fruit was waiting for after returning from dinner, in addition to welcome gifts for the kids. (They accept dogs, too – next time they’re coming with.)
And this is all in less than 24 hours. I can hardly remember the last time I stayed at a hotel where the staff wasn’t just courteous, but actually took extra steps to deliver a great experience. Probably not since my wedding/honeymoon…
