Which is the best hotel if staying for one night?  Want to be close to shul and not far from the airport?

Thinking of doing a long weekend in Amsterdam.
Any recommendations for shabbat-friendly hotels walking distance from the Spanish-Portuguese shul?

I stayed at the Andaz for shabbos. It's in thr eruv and walking distance from the Jewish Quarter.

They were accommodating with helping set up the room (disabling sensors and the like).

The waldorf there is very nice and mistama would be shabbos friendly, the staff would do anything for you to help with what you need. Dont know about eruv but i think it was only a few minutes from the shul

I inquired: many frum don't use it. Some do.
Your typical Jewish scenario.
Very controversial Eruv. IINM it relies on a 'doorway' with no frame, only a roll of string that hypothetically can be rolled open to form a fence.

When was this? This was one of my considerations in booking it for my trip in Februrary  :(

Apart from that, were they accommodating shabbat-wise?
