Schiphol/McLean, Va.: Hilton Hotels & Resorts, pioneer of the world’s first airport hotel in 1959, today opens the new Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, the latest vision for modern air travel accommodation. The state-of-the-art 433-room hotel replaces the previous Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, which opened in 1972. The landmark property was developed and is owned by Schiphol Real Estate.
Created by acclaimed Dutch architects Mecanoo, alongside British interior design company The Gallery HBA, Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has a distinct cubic design that features a 42-metre high glazed roof. Contemporary Dutch influence can also be found throughout the public space and guestrooms. Spanish artist Israel Páez has created a wide range of bespoke pieces for the hotel such as story-telling tile walls in the open kitchens and a series of headboards for the guest rooms representing the Dutch landscape that gives every space an authentic and local touch.
Rob Palleschi, global head, full service brands, Hilton Worldwide, said, “The airport hotel concept was born in 1959, with the opening of Hilton San Francisco Airport. Innovation is in our blood – from being the first hospitality company to install televisions in guest rooms to introducing digital check-in with room selection via the Hilton HHonors app – and that pioneering spirit lives on as our brand nears its 100th anniversary. The new Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is all about challenging expectations and we look forward to giving guests a new type of airport hotel experience through our stylish design, unique F&B offerings and world-class service and amenities.”
Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol showcases Hilton’s new lobby concept which brings together, in a single open-plan area, unique ‘islands’ which serve as multi-functional spaces, including a reception area, lounge and bar.

The hotel’s 433 rooms include 12 suites with a separate living room, large bathroom and extensive work area and 96 Executive rooms, which allow guests access to the Executive Lounge.

In the lobby and cocktail bar, guests can star gaze within the atrium whilst being able to choose from a large selection of gins and jenevers in The Netherlands. The Bowery restaurant features three live cooking stations and offers authentic grill and Asian dishes inspired by its Dutch heritage and made with fresh ingredients sourced from local suppliers and farmers.
