Have stayed at Pulitzer , top of the range on nice canal , but very close to all attraction.

Never stayed at Amrican , is it Crown Plaza American ? if so the recent reviews are very good , but there are a few not so good, from the past.

Never stayed at Pulitzer, but just stayed at Amsterdam American which used to be the Crown Plaza American. My family loved it, even my teenager. Check out the reviews on the Amsterdam hotels forum. Any specific questions I would be happy to answer.

That is a great predicament to be in, since they are both great hotels, though the locations are starkly different. The Pulitzer is very picturesque on a beautiful Canal. The American is Art Deco on the most hopping square in the city (Leidseplein). The food is slightly better, but more expensive at the Pulitzer as is the service.

Pulitzer is closer to the Anne Frank House, Dam Square, Royal Palace...

American is closer to the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, and of course, the Leidseplein.

Both have great Sunday brunches. If price were no object and I were going to Amsterdam for the first time I would choose the Pulitzer for its charm, but you can't really go wrong with either choice.
