Excellent location especially if you want to be near the Central Train Station. It's literally around the corner and a hop across a couple of streets. Can't be missed. Very convenient when you're totting luggage.
To get around town, public trans (S-bahn) can be caught just up the street from the hotel - about a 3 minute walk. It's very easy to ride and will get you to all touristy parts w/ ease. Or if you're interested in the city tours; you can catch the very noticeable double-decker in front of the station.
Anytime we had to interact w/ staff, it was pleasant. Very much in keeping w/ Marriott's customer service standards.
Note: front office manager, Steve Provance goes above and beyond to be helpful.
The rooms are very much what you would expect from a Marriott property. Very clean, large, and comfy. At least they were on the club/concierge level. Great place to return after walking all day, which is exactly what you'll do in Amsterdam.
Note: I believe this building is shared w/ a night club in the rear. If you're a light sleeper be certain to request a room at the front of the hotel. Otherwise, you'll hear the music well. It wasn't a nuisance for me but I'd imagine it would be for some. As well as rooms with windows facing the alley. Most young kids park their bikes there and congregate after club hours before taking off. They aren't at all obnoxiously loud or anything like that but they can be heard at 3am.
Within the hotel, there are a couple of different choices that are fine. A bit over-priced but that's typical within hotels. I'd recommend venturing into the city for a variety of food options- from various regions. I was pleasantly surprised to see so many different cuisines in Amsterdam.
Overall, a great stay and I can't wait to return.
