Second anniversaries (Or: Executive suites in Amersfoort)

On Saturday Marco and I went to Amersfoort to celebrate our second wedding anniversary. We decided to book an executive suite. Let me just say I’ve never stayed in “the best room in the hotel” before. It was great. And while the room description said that there were be a 52″ television, it turns out the room had three 52″ TVs. Sheesh.

We did end up exploring Amersfoort a bit, but mainly the area near the hotel. There’s another, proper shopping area about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. We did visit it briefly to get some bagels from Bagels & Beans for breakfast in the morning.

Sitting room with free water (normal and with bubbles) – quite un-Dutch to offer free water! There were also two cold waters in the fridge. This was TV #2 of #3.

View from the bedroom – the tower in the distance is the ‘Onze Lieve Vrouwetoren’

Bed, including bathrobes and slippers. This was TV #3 of #3 (not shown).

Jacuzzi at Mercure hotel in Amersfoort

Two person jacuzzi. Or four, really… It was huge! And definitely the highlight of the room (and why we booked it in the first place).

When we checked out we were told that it was the best room in the hotel. It definitely seemed like it. Bye room 1001!

    Wow. Very nice room.

  2. Too bad you didn’t explore the city center. It’s a beautiful town dating from the 13th century. Maybe you’ll go back?

    • Definitely. We have some relatives that live in Amersfoort, so we visit a few times a year – although admittedly we have not walked through the city center yet. From what I (briefly) saw, it do look quite nice.
