We have 5 nights in Amsterdam coming up mid-November and would like recommendations for districts and hotels for that period. We may want to take a day trip outside Amsterdam, so accessible to public transport and trains. We enjoy real neighborhoods, with cafes, restaurants, and shopping. Budget is up to $150USD/night. I don't know if breakfast is usually included or not. Neither of us has been to Amsterdam in 45 years, so fill us in on the newer must-dos. We are very active New Yorkers, so walking and train-hopping are no problem. Thanks in advance.
