Stayed here for family wedding recently. The wedding chamber itself is an historical and architectural gem from the Deco era when the hotel was the Amsterdam Town Hall and for a small intimate wedding could not be bettered.
Bedrooms all very nice indeed and probably the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in. Outstanding breakfast choices and buffet - again one of the very best ever.
Service was generally outstanding (other than being told by the receptionist that we hadn't got a booking on arrival - she was suitably embarrassed and apologetic subsequently - which may be why my parents suitcase ended up in the baggage room rather than their bedroom).
Food is outstanding, but quite fussy so not ideal for older parents. Likewise, the food options other than the restaurant also not really suited to elderly parents (low seating or high bar stools. Perhaps churlish of me to think that to be truly great a hotel should be able to cater equally well to the complete age range?
It was a great location and setting for the wedding which was brilliantly well done. My own taste in hotels is more small scale and personal but for a large and special hotel this is probably as good as it gets.
