Outside of the corporate feel, this place is the money. We had a luxury canal view room that was unbelievable! It was decorated in Louis XV style, and huge. It was so nice, that it was difficult to leave! Amsterdam is a lovely city, with gorgeous architecture and canals, boats, etc., so we did make it out and around town, but getting back to our hotel and enjoying Heineken on tap at the hotel, across the street al fresco, and pretty much everywhere was special! The hotel is centrally located to everything - likely the best spot in town, and didn't realize it until stayed at a number of other hotels (quite expensive ones, like Blakes (may have changed names since), the Okura, and others). Don't be fooled, this is where you want to be! There are apparently some charming converted townhouse hotels that are supposedly quite good, but why chance it? We chanced it with Blakes, actually just looked up and now it's the "Dylan," and were actually horrified at the dark chambered rooms that were claustrophobic, and the common areas that were overly modern and white and surreal - not our style, and apparently not that of most! Freddy Heineken should be proud of his lasting legacy here.
