Banks Mansion's way of differentiating itself is what they call all-inclusive. What this actually means is no charge for Internet, a very full breakfast, mini-bar, coffee in the room or lobby, or drinks in the room or lobby. This includes wine, beer, and hard liquor. We have never seen this before, nothing even close in an urban, upscale boutique hotel. To put this in context, I worked most of my career in the resort industry and we have stayed in hundreds of hotels in dozens of countries. The lobby area is set up as a living room to encourage guests to hang out. A nice appetizer serving in the late afternoon reinforces the concept. All in all a great concept, more like a cruise than a hotel. The room was spacious and nicely finished. The bed and linens were comfy and top quality. The service standard was truly exceptional: the very hard to achieve combination of high efficiency with warmth and friendliness. My hat is off to the manager. Almost forgot to mention that the location is fabulous. It is on the most upscale Amsterdam canal within walking distance of major sites and tons of restaurants and shopping. All in all, you could spend a lot more and get a lot less in a hotel. Hard to imagine a better choice in Amsterdam. We spent five nights and it was not long enough.
