Charming, modern, tasteful, historical, pampered. These are the words I think of about my recent stay at the Pulitzer. When I return to Amsterdam, this will be my hotel of choice. It was one of my best Starwood hotel experiences, anywhere. While not all rooms may be renovated, the one I was given was recently remodeled. Modern bathroom, though small, modern conveniences, old world charm throughout. I had an executive room which includes breakfast, and they did a first rate breakfast buffet each day I was there. I did not have a canal view, and I didn't miss it at all - in fact, I enjoyed the quiet interior room. The restaurant for dinner was also fantastic - I recommend the traditional dishes for local flavor. This hotel is in a wonderful location a few minutes from a tram, five minutes walk from major sites, etc.
It's also worth noting that I'm usually not so impressed with the staff and concierge at Starwood hotels - in general, I feel that they need more training in "helpfulness". The staff at the Pulitzer should go train the other hotels. From finding a local service business to recommend restaurants and tourist sites, they were fantastic. Since the staff often makes or breaks a hotel experience, this is definitely one of their more important assets.
