For our trip to Amsterdam, we decided on taking a hotel outside the city center: XO Hotels Park West. For one, these are not so expensive and it is not so noisy compared to hotels in the center of Amsterdam. XO Hotels Park West is conveniently located right across a tram stop which brings you to the city center in about 15 minutes. You can buy tickets in the vending machines in the lobby of the hotel. The last tram leaves the city center a little past midnight.

Geierlay suspension bridge
Because it was a Belgian holiday on Monday the 15th of August, we decided to go to Germany for 3 days, and more specifically to Cochem in the Mosel Region. On our way to Cochem, we first went to Morsdorf to see the Hängeseilbrücke Geierlay that connects Morsdorf with Sosberg. With a length of 360m, it is the longest suspension bridge of Germany. After eating a sausage, we walked about 1.5km to the bridge.
For work, I had a week of training in Billerica, a city just outside of Boston. I stayed at Courtyard by Marriott Hotel for a week. This is really the perfect hotel to stay for a long period of time. I had a very spacious room that was cleaned every day. (Because I arrived in the evening, the photos are a bit dark).
