It had been a rough day when my husband Patrick and I met at CitizenM Schiphol Airport. I won’t go into details if you don’t mind – but suffice to say we were tired and oh, so happy to see each other on the night of our fifth wedding anniversary. An inhumanely early flight to Copenhagen was the reason we decided to spend the night at the airport and looking back, I’m glad we picked CitizenM. Excellent service, the perfect cocktail and a great meal can be such a treat if you’re away from home, particularly if you’re not feeling your best. And despite all the beautiful design in the lobby, the iMacs, the coffee table books and magazines, my favorite part of CitizenM Schiphol was the view from our room. It was such an oddly comforting experience to watch the airplanes taxi and then depart from your own bed. Definitely a night to remember.
PS: There’s also a CitizenM hotel in my hometown Rotterdam – you can check it out here.
