Good size room for Damrak area

Booked the room via online travel site where this review is being written but they did not provide any information to hotel. They need to ensure that if they sell prepaid room reservation, then hotel should actually receive the information. It took hotel staff few phone calls and some workaround to find me a room. This is a way better than typical Central area hotel but not as par with same brand hotel in other location. The wireless (or wired) internet connection is extra. Room window was right in front of Burger King and McDonaland so it was bright but nothing which curtains cant hide.

In the middle of it all...

Had a very nice suite. Great bathroom (important when you've traveled long distances ), very clean, staff was very nice and accomodating. Right in the middle of town a short walk from Centraal station, which travels all over the netherlands and farther countries as well.

the main shopping area is a block away and goes on for blocks. Also the infamous red light district is not far, but also more family friendly areas are a short distance.

Great Location; American-Style Hotel

Great, centralized location; American-Style Hotel with relatively spacious and very clean rooms; Comfortable walking distance to everything that Amsterdam has to offer, but bicycle rental and public transport are very close by for those who don't want to walk the city; Restaurant was beautifully decorated, but we did not dine there so are unable to comment on food or service; Staff was friendly & helpful; Free internet access on several desktop computers (with printer) available in the business center; Hotel also had free workout facilities that we did not use so we cannot comment

Swissotel Amsterdam - a good choice

Location of the hotel is ideal. We especially noticed that when exploring different areas - where we were was perfect. You can walk to anywhere of interest - we never used public transportation. Came from the airport into town with the train, and you can easily walk to hotel from Amsterdam Centraal Station (main train station). Hotel rooms are pleasant and clean, comfortable beds, super clean bathroom with granite tile flooring and granits sink surround. Conveniences we're used from the U.S. that you often don't find in European hotels. Some nice added touches like warmed towels as the towel rack is a towel heater at the same time. Grohe shower fixtures where you actually set the desired temperature (yes, its in Celcius, not Fahrenheit). Nespresso machines is great. Small fridge in every room - intended as minibar but you can use it for a few items yourself. Safe is big enough to hold even larger size laptops - that was important. 1st floor (which would be called 2nd floor in the U.S.) has a convenient room with 3 PCs for free internet access (if you want wireless from your room, it's 15 Euros per day). Didn't take their breakfast as 20 Euros per person is overpriced. Couple of bakeries are a good option as they sell good coffee as well and have a few tables where you can sit down. I've read reviews where people complained about the water pressure in the shower: that's not due to the hotel, but it's the European way to conserve water. Showers are more like a 'soft rain' rather than a water massage :-) The hotel staff was extremely friendly - you don't see that much in many hotels.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Across the street is a upscale department store called Bijenkorf - comparable to Harrods in London, or Bloomingdales in the U.S. On 5th floor is also a restaurant that's convenient with high quality food items and all fresh made juices (Jamba-Juice "like").
