One of the best -- and best known -- of Amsterdam's canal hotels, the Pulitzer has expanded to include 24 17th- and 18th- century canal houses on Prinsengracht and Keizersgracht. Art lovers will appreciate the hotel's gallery, and just about everyone else will appreciate the beautifully restored launch at the end of the Pulitzer's dock. More expensive than some, it has an outstanding restaurant, a cafe and a stylish bar. It is now a Sheraton property.
