Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht
Amsterdam hospitality goes freestyle in this spirited, Dutch-inspired hotel and the first for Andaz in Continental Europe
Amsterdam is a great European city that has always encouraged the creative spirit and individuality. In design and in the arts, Amsterdam continues to re-invent itself while celebrating it historic and cultural heritage. Andaz Hotels, a distinctive brand of Hyatt Hotels, is also known for its individuality and regional expression. The Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengraght Hotel, opened in 2012, is to us a refreshing example of a “hometown” 21st century hospitality design. Symbolic references throughout the hotel’s interiors, eg tulip shaped lighting, Delft-inspired patterns and finishes, speak to the uniqueness of the Netherlands. What we find so appealing is the spirited way these references are carried out in the design of the interiors. The creative designer responsible for these lively spaces is Marcel Wanders. Without an official title for this style of design, we shall call it “upbeat modern Dutch.“ And upbeat it is!
The Andaz Prinsengracht is located between the Prinsengracht (“Prince’s Canal”) and the Kelzersgraght (“Emperor’s Canal”), two of the major canals that define and beautify Amsterdam. The canals of Amsterdam are protected UNESCO World Heritage sites. The hotel is situated in the Jordaan district, known for its art scene, shopping, dining and nightlife.
The hotel offers 122 guest rooms and suites. Rooms feature simple yet bold modern furnishings, in-room vessel sinks, and decorative Dutch-inspired images on the walls. Some rooms overlook the hotel’s “observatory,” a soaring space above the lobby lounge, highlighted by its abstract star-like lighting. The Spa at Andaz Prinsengraght offers a hip, urban setting and provides treatments for both guests and visitors. In-room treatments are also available.
The hotel features art-on-video, showcasing local and international talent, both established and upcoming. Video screens are dispersed throughout the public areas of the hotel, and these videos can also be viewed in the guest rooms.
The Bluespoon Restaurant features regionally-inspired and sourced “from the farm to the table,” with menus created by Chef Julien Piguet. The open kitchen is a feature of the restaurant’s design. There is a “chef’s table” offering a front-row seat to all the cooking action. Cocktails can be enjoyed in the Bluespoon Bar or in the Lobby Lounge.
The hotel’s meeting and event spaces, known as the Andaz Studios, offer a variety of room sizes and visual settings. These spaces can accommodate a variety of functions ranging from the executive boardroom to large corporate receptions, A featured meeting space is the Delft Blue Room, which to our total delight is fully decorated in vintage and new Delft tiles.
