The Marriott Hotel in Amsterdam is a fabulous find. It's located in the city center within easy walking distance of almost everywhere you would want to be. Quiet, well furnished rooms with great views, and a friendly, helpful staff. We had a short walk to a great place for a fabulous Irish breakfast prior to jumping onto a canal tour boat for a jaunt around the city. I highly recommend doing the same. Afterwards, we visited the many shops and enjoyed what Amsterdam had to offer. Shortly there after we sat with some great coffee in an outside bar and watched the hundreds of young locals and tourists riding by on their bikes. I think we watched for hours. That night we chose to eat in the hotel grill for some great Indian curry, mini burgers for the kids, and a cesear salad for the wife. The wine was great, the food was outstanding and the service was memorable. It didn't break the bank either. There is no question that we will be choosing the Marriott on our next trip through Amsterdam.
