Hotel Deals in Amsterdam Let Travellers Experience the Annual Light Festival

Let in the Light With the Amsterdam Marriott Hotel's Timely New Promotion

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwired - Nov 14, 2013) - Amsterdam may be known round the world for its tulips and canals, but for the 50 days between December 6, 2013 and January 19, 2014, the overarching motif is neither flower nor ferry but light in all its forms, from sculptures, to projections, to installations. And at the Amsterdam Marriott Hotel, visitors can easily get enlightened courtesy of the Amsterdam Light Festival package.

Ideal for travellers enjoying Amsterdam weekend breaks or longer tours of the region, the package is available between December 10, 2013 and January 19, 2014. This time frame includes almost the entirety of the Light Festival, which meanders through the historic part of town and features works by international artists.

Guests who book the package will be made ready for an illuminating experience thanks to their deluxe or family room accommodations, which include Internet access and a buffet breakfast. The city-centre Amsterdam hotel also serves as an ideal launch pad for the package's other big draw: an evening boat tour of the city along the canals, complete with a glass of Glühwein.

While the Light Festival and canal tours capture the spirit of the city, the hotel enhances every stay with its contemporary aesthetic and thoughtful appointments. Guest rooms, for example, feature luxury Revive bedding, flat-screen televisions and charming views of the 17th-century architecture across from the hotel in Amsterdam's Leidseplein district. Visitors also enjoy the savoury fare of the hotel's two restaurants, the upscale Midtown Grill steakhouse and the trendy Sorel's Midtown Bar and Lounge. Those who book the Light Festival package will have an added incentive to try Midtown -- the promotion includes a 20-percent discount at either Midtown Grill.

When guests aren't luxuriating in their rooms or marvelling at the Light Festival, they can access the city's wealth of nearby attractions. The Amsterdam hotel is close to the popular Vondelpark and just steps away from the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum. As a result, guests can essentially sightsee day and night during the magical 50-day festival in one of Europe's grandest cities.
