Brussels and Amsterdam

I am just about to book my hotels for these two cities. Originally we were going to spend 3 nights in Brussels and 4 nights in Amsterdam. Now we are rethinking. Should we spend 4 nights in Brussels and 3 in Amsterdam. I love museums and sight seeing. But I am thinking that my love of food might win out. On a gastronomic level, it seems like Brussels is more alluring.

My husband would like to take day trips from Brussels to Brugge and maybe Antwerp. So he thinks it makes more sense to use Brussels as a base. Of course the fun and coffeeshops of Amsterdam sound very appealing to me! Any advice?

3 nights in Brussels, with one day trip to Brugge, should be more than enough. Stop in Antwerp on your way to Amsterdam and spend a night there if you want, then on to Amsterdam for the rest of the trip. That's what I would do, anyway.
