    Hapimag Amsterdam? Other options?

    So it looks like the Burgundy portion of our trip to France is getting scrapped and we may go to Amsterdam for a few days instead. How is the location of the Hapimag there? Are there any centrally located timeshares? We want to be in the city center (or equivalent). Hotel reco's welcome, too. TIA

    There used to be an RCI-affiliated timeshare located on the beach, a short and easy train ride from Amsterdam Central Station, but its members voted to disband, sell the property, and divide money. Other than Hapimag (which you would have to rent if you are not a member since they no long trade through DAE and DRI like they used to), there are no timeshare options in Amsterdam.

    Thanks, I remember when that place used to come up but we would like to be a little more central anyway. A friend just recommended NH Carlton hotel by the flower market.

    BTW, I'm still keeping track of how many times you annoy me.

    We've been happy with Priceline in Amsterdam. We also stayed at the Hilton, which was kind of in the suburbs, a short ride to city center, but not as good as being in the center to begin with as we were with the Marriott, which was what we got with Priceline.

    I was wondering about Priceline. I will check the neighborhood search criteria as well as Biddingfortravel to see if we might be able make that work. Thanks!

    Send Garry, Ireland's Call a pm. He has had much success bidding on eBay for actual hotel certs sold by Marriott for the various European hotels. And I believe he has stayed in Amsterdam. I am going to give this a try for a early summer 2015 trip to Europe.

    I know someone I trust and can ask if you e-mail the dates.
