>General Running>Great hospitality for runners in Crowne Plaza Amsterdam
Just came back from a nice run while on vacation in Amsterdam. Was pleasantly surprised in the lobby to be greeted by the concierge with a "runner's package" consisting of a fresh towel, a protein shake, a smoothie and a note saying:
"Hope you had a fun run around town. Please enjoy this complimentary protein on us"

Really nice touch! I've never heard anyone mention that happening to them - ever! What a creative way to make your guest feel special!
Use your momentum...keep going. You know you can make it.
I've gone running in Vondelpark there--nice.
Wonderful city. Great people. Have to watch out for the bikes!
Almost got run over a fews times (my own negligence).
Loved seeing people riding their bikes to work in suits and nice dresses, briefcases in their baskets.
