Having trouble deciding between two hotels

My wife and I will be visiting Amsterdam next summer for two days (one night) and we are trying to decide between two hotels -- the Radisson Blu and the Andaz. The Andaz seems like the nicer hotel. We want to be centrally located and within easy walking distance of the main tourist areas, as we will only be in town for two days. What do people think of these locations?

The Blu is right on the edge of the Red Light District. Not that that's bad, just busier. The Andaz is brand new and in a wonderful location on the Prinsengracht.

Thanks for all the replies -- very helpful. This is cementing my leaning towards the Andaz. It's a little pricey, but it's only one night and looks gorgeous.
