Weather: November is the rainiest month of the year in South Holland. Rain can be very intense
(unlike in the UK), so be prepared. It is also very windy; umbrellas are not always practical.
Cashless: The Netherlands is very cashless; there is no need to bring too much cash with you.
Paying by card or Apple/Google Pay is pretty universal (we are not sure how usable AmEx or Discover cards are;
Europe is mainly MasterCard and Visa).
Getting to the Marriot: The Marriott is located between the coastline of Scheveningen and The Hague. From
Amsterdam: take the A4 (direction Den Haag-Rotterdam), then at the junction, follow the A44. Continue on the N44
toward "Wassenaar-Zuid/Den Haag." Take the exit at "Landscheidingsweg/S200" and continue for 5km. Then take the
exit on the right at "Johan De Wittelaan."
By Train: For train tickets you can use the NS (Dutch Rail) website and app (you can buy tickets in the app):
Dutch rail stations are controlled access, so you need to scan your ticket to exit.
Den Haag has two main rail stations (Den Haag Centraal and Den Haag Hollands Spoor/HS), plus a couple of smaller ones
(Laan van Nieuw Oost-Indië/NOI, etc); make sure you get out of the train at the right stop.
Trains between Schiphol Airport and The Hague are very frequent. You can buy tickets at the yellow ticket machines while
you wait for your luggage in Schiphol. The NS app will tell you the platform (Spoor) a train arrives at, any delays
(there are delays, but fewer than in Germany), and how full the train is.
From Den Haag Centraal station, take Tram number 16 (direction Statenkwartier) or Bus number 24 (direction Kijkduin)
and get off at "Gemeentemuseum/Museon, Den Haag." The stop is 3-4 minutes walking distance from the hotel. The
journey time is approx. 15-20 minutes.
Please note that the nearest railway station to The Marriott hotel is Den Haag Centraal, and the Amsterdam Airport railway station is called Schiphol. Tickets by Clicking Here.
