LOVED the IC Amsterdam, extremely shabbos friendly in and of itself, though its right outside the eruv. its unclear whether they have hard keys, they told us they do and can have someone bring and use for us whenever we came, though in the end the people they sent up used electric fobs anyway for their convenience (this was bc the doors were heavy and tight and our magnet for the door latch didnt fit). their service is awesome and everyone knew our names and were always watching out for us (possible they showed them our faces so they were ready?). we got a room one floor from the lobby, which u walk up to with nice big staircase in the front https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g188590-d190614-r637353960-InterContinental_Amstel_Amsterdam-Amsterdam_North_Holland_Province.html
was a short simple walk to chabad, about 10-12 minutes, and the other way to porteguese was also easily doable.
