This was far and away one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. The hotel is in a perfect location to walk to all of the sights in the city and sits right on the canal. The property itself is magnificent - from the moment you enter the gorgeous lobby with a huge urn of fresh pink roses and reproductions of famous paintings by Dutch masters you know you are in a 5-star hotel. One end of the lobby has a huge window overlooking the canal and everything is pristine. Even the lobby bathrooms are out of this world. Our room was spectacular with every amenity you could possibly imagine (including free Ipod, softest robes ever, the most comfortable linens and beds, abundant towels, wonderful toiletries, amazing marble bathroom, rainfall shower head, overabundance of closets, etc.) However, what puts this hotel over the top is the staff. They are true professionals and were just the best. The folks at reception, the two wonderful gentlemen at the concierge, Mohammed (the gentlemen who showed us to our room), bellhops, doormen, etc are all best in class! They were friendly and professional and helpful without the least bit of arrogance. Can't imagine a hotel ever having a better staff!
The only downside to this hotel is the restaurant. The food is just mediocre (including breakfast) and the service outside was atrocious! I am not sure why the level of service there is so different from the rest of the hotel.
