GalleryCon2008: Amsterdam

We started the discussion last year and after some little discussion this year, we decided to do in EUROPE -> AMSTERDAM.

What i (Jens) would like to do is to go into a so called "Bungalow Park". For example something like this: http://www.centerparcs.com/EN/US/villages#

The one i have in mind is this: Park Zandvoort http://www.centerparcs.com/EN/US/villages/park_zandvoort So we can live there and do trips to Amsterdam.

Or we could live directly in Amsterdam and do a trip to the coast if we want. We ended up in let me book a Hotel ;-) See more details below.

Where do we stay ?

Mercure Hotel Amsterdam Aan de Amstel Joan Muyskenweg 10 1096 CJ AMSTERDAM - NETHERLANDS

Hotel code : 1244 - Tel : (+31)20/6658181 - Fax : (+31)20/6948735 - @ : H1244@accor.com


So far i booked 8 Rooms, each for 2 people. Price: 99,50 Euro per night and room + 5% Tax. Breakfast is included.

Plans ?


 During the day: Meet & Greet with the team in the hotel
 At the early evening: Diner in the hotel
 At evening: Ghost Tour in Amsterdam http://www.amsterdamghostwalk.com/main.php?lang=en
 At the later evening: Meet & Drink somewhere in Amsterdam


 In the morning: Breakfast for those who can and want
 During the day: Sightseeing per feed and on a boat
 At the evening: THE DINER (which drinks, speaches, tears, etc.) in a Restaurant in Amsterdam
 At the later evening: No idea so far

Do you like the idea? Or would you like to do something else?
Who Hotel inside, Bungalowpark outside Comment
Jens Bungalow
Andy Bungalow would be nice. But that sounds even more expensive. Whatever we can afford.
Michael S. I prefer whichever is least expensive - travel from the US to Amsterdam is much more expensive than intra-US travel.
Tim Hotel I think we'd prefer, in Amsterdam only because of the availability of activities and sights. The concern is that if you are in the Bungalow Park (btw it did look very nice), it might limit the ability to see some of the sights in Amsterdam. Further too, still prefer to be in Amsterdam... not much of a beach person, but if the consensus is that we're doing the bungalow park, can we get bungalows for two.
Bharat I have no strong preference. It's going to be fun either way
floridave I go with the flow....As long as there is beer.
paour No strong preferences either. We probably won't be able to stay more than the weekend unfortunately
