Hotel Pulitzer in Amsterdam Reopens on the Canal After Renovations

The 225-room Hotel Pulitzer Amsterdam reopened Aug. 15 following a head-to-toe, three-year renovation. The property is made up of 25 connected canal houses, and several suites open up directly on the canal.

Four themed Collector Suites, reflecting the trade merchants and Dutch aristocrats who once owned the 400-year-old buildings, entice VIPs: the Art Collector, Book Collector, Music Collector and Antiques Collector suites, all with private street entrances and views of the canals. Even among the standard rooms, no two are the same. In-room amenities include free WiFi and a bike-repair kit.

A new restaurant, "Jansz.", serves classic European fare in an elegant setting, and Pulitzer's Bar was redesigned with intimacy in mind, featuring club chairs and dark woods. "Pause" serves coffee and light dishes.

For groups, the Pulitzer features about 19,000 square feet of meeting space. Also on-site is a two-story gym, a flower shop, a library featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning books and a garden at the center of the hotel.

"We are overwhelmed by the positive feedback we have received so far from guests and locals on the new-look Pulitzer Amsterdam," said general manager Alexander van Gastel. "Our grand opening marks the next chapter and a very special moment in the hotel's history. We are excited to reveal our complete offering and once again fully reopen for business. I am so proud of the dedication from all involved to bring this together, delivering our vision above and beyond."
