The Dylan was a wonderful experience. We stayed here for two nights over NYE.
ROOM: Our room was extremely spacious, as was the bathroom. Should note that we received an upgrade from the Deluxe Double to the Superior Canal View room. I specifically requested the Kimono ahead of time; recommend you look at the various room styles the Dylan offers and choose one in advance, since each is so vastly different. The room was fantastically designed - sliding doors between the bathroom and the rest of the room allowed you to have everything completely open. It was amazing to take a bath while looking outside at the houses lining the canals. Our room also had a cozy couch with plenty of great reading material on the side tables - design/travel books and magazines, amsterdam-specific, etc. Lots of attention to detail with superb little touches in general. The one thing the Dylan could improve in the rooms would be an update to the outdated CD Bose system. There was a jack for our iPod still though.
STAFF: Really made this hotel stand out. Especially considering that service in Holland leaves a lot to be desired. Whatever we requested was brought to the room within mintutes, with a smile (extra towels, ironing board, etc). We had a very charming bartender who kicked off our NYE in style - thanks, Pascal! Also special thanks to Joost.
RESTAURANT: Unfortunately the restaurant Vinkeles (MIchelin star) is being renovated through end of January '10 so didn't get to try. Bar & incredibly spacious lounge area with cozy fireplace were still open though. All room service we ordered was excellent - they do an especially fabulous breakfast.
LOCATION: The hotel is located right in the fashionable Nine Streets districts, my favorite area of Amsterdam. Lots of great little cafes, boutiques, restaurants. Recommend checking out Goodies for incredible Italian lunch/dinner, Cafe Nielsen for brunch, and Cafe Wolvenstraat for an afternoon drink with a great vibe (they also do great Thai dishes).
