I booked the CP American for a surprise birthday trip for my boyfriend.
I booked a standard double from the hotels own website.
The room was slightly on the small side, but was high up and had a private balcony overlooking the canal. The room was clean and had some nice extras, such as bathrobes, free bottled water and biscuits. The decor was a bit outdated, but ok.
The location of the hotel was great, being walking distance to restaurants, bars, Van Gogh museum etc., and we weren't disturbed by any noise.
We had the jazz lunch at the Cafe Americain which was great (I think it is just on Sundays). For 22 Euros you get a glass of champagne, as much as you want from the buffet and coffee after, accompanied by a live jazz band. Lovely decor in the restaurant and it has a romantic atmosphere.
Hotel staff seemed friendly enough, but did not really need to trouble them for anything.
Overall, room seemed expensive for the size, but believe this is typical of Amsterdam. Would be happy to stay here again.
