• Ambassade (Amsterdam; tel. 020/555-0222): This hotel occupies 10 neighboring canal houses on the city's most fashionable canal. You really feel that you're in the home of a well-to-do 17th-century merchant. Most of the individually styled and spacious rooms have large windows overlooking the canal, as does the split-level chandeliered breakfast room.
  • Seven Bridges (Amsterdam; tel. 020/623-1329): At some hotels, the owners aren't just running a business -- they're doing what they love. The Seven Bridges is that kind of place. Pierre Keulers and Günter Glaner have found both their hobby and their profession in this fine hotel in Amsterdam. It's no exaggeration to say that all the furniture, fixtures, and fittings have been selected with loving care, and guests receive the same conscientious attention.
  • Amrâth Hotel DuCasque (Maastricht; tel. 043/321-4343): The Hotel du Casque overlooks the Vrijthof, which basks in its reputation as the liveliest square in the liveliest city in the country. Despite its prestigious address, this hotel is about as moderately priced as you're likely to find in Maastricht.
