I recently stayed at the DoubleTree Amsterdam for one night during a short weekend trip.
Being located closely to the central railway-station made it a perfect choice for me - not only because I was arriving by train but also because many of Amsterdam's sightseeing spots are within walking distance from there.
I stayed in a double-room in one of the upper floors. Room size was not too big, but not too small either. It faced the railway tracks, but the sound from the trains was inaudible even during nighttime. It came equipped not only with a large wardrobe and a small safe, but also with free W-LAN and an Apple-TV device with free access to internet services (keyboard and mouse included) as well!
I also visited the Sky-Lounge bar during my stay and that one turned out to be truly amazing. Prices maybe a bit high, but in the end you'll pay for the vista and atmosphere too.
Hotel staff were friendly and competent, however during check-in and check-out they sometimes seemed to be in the state of being overrun by the sheer number of guests (I think there was some trade-fair being held in Amsterdam during my stay).
All in all, this is an excellent choice for someone seeking a centrally located base for exploring Amsterdam, however it comes at a price: Rates are quite high for a DoubleTree property.
Final verdict: 4 out of 5 points on my personal scale!
