We traveled to Amsterdam for two days in the middle of our 8 day stay in the Netherlands and found the Hotel Pulitzer a nice retreat. The room was very clean, wooden floors, pleasantly large for a European hotel, high ceilings, and large windows for sunlight. The king size bed was very comfortable with crisp linen sheets and a plush comforter. The bathroom was very clean and we enjoyed the deep tub. Our room was on the 2nd floor, near the front of the hotel on Prinsengracht. Although we didn't get an upgrade to the canal view, we were extremely happy with our location as it was very quiet. As SPG Gold members, we enjoyed wireless internet too.The rooms also had robes and slippers for use.
Much of Amsterdam is within walking distance of this location. You can catch the tram down at the end of the street if you prefer. We walked throughout much of the area, to Dam Square and beyond. Anne Franks House is about 5-10 minute walk down Prinsengracht. We enjoyed a nice pizza across the street (canal) on the corner, very pleasant atmosphere where we met family who live near Amsterdam. The next evening we went to Cafe Rest 'T Zwaantje, just down Prinsengracht and left on Berenstraat. Very cozy atmosphere with nice selection of Dutch comfort foods. On the same street, Berenstraat, you can also find Pancakes! Amsterdam, a small, quaint restaurant where we enjoyed breakfast. Though we were too early the first morning, they open at 10am. We also took the Canal Boat ride offered by the Hotel Pulitzer, a nice 75 minute canal tour which departs and returns directly in front of the hotel.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Streets are small and parking is limited so we used valet parking.
