The designers of Grand Hotel Amrath Amsterdam largely succeeded in the conversion of an Art Deco Office building to a modern hotel. It has pretty much everything you could want, including relatively spacious rooms with 18 ft ceilings, super comfortable beds, and modern bathrooms with great sunken tubs. Extras include a 32" flat screen TV and a free minibar. (Most of the english language TV channels were British, not American.) Amenities are wide-ranging, including business center and a free wellness center with gym, pool, sauna, and whirlpool. The staff was highly attentive, befitting a 5 star rating. Best of all, the room was completely quiet, despite the hotel being "close to the action".
There are only 2 slight issues: Location is good, but a decent walk from some popular tourist areas (Leidseplein, Museumplein, etc.). It is however very convenient to Central Station and the red light district. We loved walking everywhere in this gorgeous city, so we didn't mind the slightly off-center location. Also, because of the historic nature of the building, there is no duct work, which means no air conditioning. This is not a horrible failing as it usually cool at night, but guests should be aware before choosing this hotel.
All in all - highly recommended
