It was just one night, but a good one. And came with a story. The night before Amsterdam marathon (which was the reason for the stay). I booked the sister hotel, Westcord Art, which is much further from the Olympic Stadium. I booked Art because Fashion was full at the time of booking :-) On arrival we got an extremely apologetic receptionist with the news of Art Hotel overbooking. They would still honour the booking, of course, but it would make their lives much easier if we accepted a room at the Fashion Hotel instead; with complementary drinks at both places, taxi transfer, and ... after all... Fashion Hotel was where all the top runners (Kenyans, Ethiopians, etc.) were staying. This was one easy decision to make. Receptionist at the Fashion place was equally apologetic about all the trouble, called us a few times in the room to check that we were OK, dealt with any minor queries we had - all in all I don't recall more attentive service anywhere. And this at the time of a huge event (marathon) that kept both hotels extremely busy.
Anyway, the room is good, bed comfortable, noise level very low. Love the design of various parts of the hotel; dinner in the restaurant was exquisite. Onion soup that beats many we tried in Lyon and Paris, followed by one of the best rabbit leg dishes ever, and a perfect sirloin steak. Once again, cannot praise the staff enough - quality of service shows that everyone at Westcord really cares about the place.
Everything is spotless, clean and pretty; pay attention to decorations everywhere, including WC doors in the restaurant.
And we did get to see some of the top runners at breakfast - the only chance to see the guys who run twice faster than me.
Location - it's easy to get too either by car or public transport, and 10-15 minutes by tram takes you into city centre. No big deal.
