DoubleTree by Hilton to host Amsterdam's Party People for Queen's Day
30 April will see the city of Amsterdam abuzz with festival fun as locals and visitors take to the streets for the annual “Konninginnedag” (“Queen’s Day”) celebrations. With its premier location, adjacent to Centraal Station in the historic city centre, there’s no better address than the new DoubleTree by Hilton Amsterdam Centraal Station from which to revel in the festivities.
In celebration of the Dutch queen mother’s birthday on 30 April, Konninginnedag is a public holiday in The Netherlands and marks Amsterdam’s biggest street party. In the streets, canals, parks and everywhere in between, the city is bursting with orange as Amsterdammers and visitors enjoy live music, DJs, parties and a citywide flea market – one of the world’s largest. For children there’s face painting, games and sporting events and many even try their hand at street performing or trading by setting up stalls to sell old toys and clothes they’ve outgrown.
There isn’t a better time to experience Amsterdam’s party atmosphere than on Queen’s Day and DoubleTree by Hilton Amsterdam Centraal Station has double rooms available from €269 on Monday, 30 April 2012.
The 553-room DoubleTree by Hilton Amsterdam Centraal Station hotel, which opened in June 2011 and became a DoubleTree by Hilton in late 2011, is perfectly located for soaking up the electric atmosphere of the festival. Guests can also explore Dam Square, enjoy a world-renowned canal tour and visit key attractions such as Leidseplein, Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Anne Frank Museum, all of which are just 2km from the hotel.
