We stayed here for three nights during the Amsterdam portion of our trip, and the stay was nearly perfect. The Crowne Plaza is a mere five minutes from the train station and is right on several tram lines. It's located in a rather touristy area, surrounded by bars, restaurants, and "coffeeshops."
When we got in, we were greeted by a positively charming young woman who very quickly addressed all of our needs. The front desk staff, to a person, was welcoming and very accomodating. Concierge service was good as well, though a bit pushy when trying to sell tourist cards, attractions, and the like. A nice lounge with a fireplace, and a free business center with Internet were also nice touches that we availed ourselves of. Although we never dined there, the prices at the hotel restaurant were reasonable aside from breakfast. Thankfully, there were several places which served English/American style breakfast, and there's a gorgeous Starbucks on the second level of the train station for coffee in the morning.
As for the room, it was rather spacious and mostly comfortable, albeit on the cold side. We always got a great night of sleep once the room warmed up - the beds and bedding were comfortable, and the room was always well-cleaned.
If you're looking for something by the train station and don't mind the trappings of a tourist area, the Crowne Plaza will more than meet your needs. Highly recommended.
