We checked out all the hotels in Amsterdam and felt that this is the top place to stay in the city. It is new, clean, beautiful, located in between the major museums, the Jewish Quarter, the Opera House and a ten minute walk to the 9 streets. It is located right on the canal in the ritziest part of town. The service was great, everyone tried to call us by name. Our room was outstanding. We would decorate our home like that. You couldn’t hear any street noise at all. The concierges made good suggestions and were helpful about what to see and restaurants to try.
