The Experience

In the heart of the city, by two gentle canals and the Royal Palace, The Grand boldly reinvents rich history: a legendary jewel among Amsterdam hotels.

It is home to the acclaimed Bridges restaurant, cocktail bar and garden terrace; to an award-winning luxury hotel spa; to magnificent banqueting facilities including the Council Chamber where Queen Beatrix married.Loyal staff of this venerable Amsterdam hotel pride themselves on reinventing Dutch hospitality à la française.

The history of this luxury Amsterdam hotel is deeply entwined with the city’s past: 15th-century convent, royal lodgings, Dutch Admiralty headquarters, City Hall…Now, after meticulous renovation by French designer Sybille de Margerie, it is a place of hospitality, art and culture.Bold colors set off creamy marble; contemporary lights glimmer on graceful arches and stained glass; rosewood handrails sweep up to luxurious suites and rooms.
