Why Stay At Andaz Amsterdam
In design mecca Amsterdam, Andaz raises the bar even higher with oversized fixtures, over-the-top art, and high-tech touches in trendy Jordaan near the Nine Streets.
Housed in a former public library, the 122-room Andaz was styled by Dutch design wunderkind Marcel Wanders for an "Alice in Amsterdam" effect, with bright-red tulip chairs and fantastical chandeliers in the lobby, and custom wallpaper in guests' bathrooms featuring maps and text from the designer's Amsterdam guidebook. Guestrooms are outfitted with wild wall art like giant spoon-shaped photo prints. The city's largest video-art collection plays on monitors in the hotel's public spaces. There's a top-floor gym with a skylight, an underground spa, and in-house bar and dining at Bluespoon—chef Julien Piguet's modern European restaurant. The hotel's Prinsengracht (Prince's Canal) location means that the Nine Streets area, with its trendy boutiques and restaurants, is just a short canal-side walk away.
Stop by the library between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. for complimentary wine and snacks.
During the same hours, Bluespoon's bar offers a traditional Italian aperitivo hour, with snacks for $2 and aperitifs like the hotel's signature Martinez cocktail, made with genever (Dutch gin), Carpano Antica, orange Curaçao, and Angostura bitters ($10).
See Amsterdam like a local⎯ask the concierge for a bike from the hotel's fleet of complimentary wheels.
Arrive at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (AMS) which is approximately 10 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 25 minutes of travel time.Prinsengracht 587, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
