Kimpton De Witt Amsterdam
Kimpton's first European boutique hotel offers a modern take on luxury, with fresh, Dutch-inspired design creating spaces that are at once elegant and inviting. 17th-century buildings house 274 guest rooms decorated with playful accents such as bird-shaped reading lamps, abstract spins on classic Dutch art, and pops of brilliant colors paying homage to historic Delft tiles. Discover a one-of-a-kind experience with a stay at the "Little House," a three-story suite that was the original childhood home of legendary Dutch playwright P.C. Hooft. The gastropub and bar plate and pour with a creative spirit, while nightly hosted social hours offer the opportunity to mingle. The hotel puts you at the doorstep to some of Amsterdam's most acclaimed attractions including the Rijksmuseum, the NEMO museum and Amsterdam's picturesque canals.
AmsterdamCosmopolitan Amsterdam is most famous for its narrow, gabled houses lining the canals. Interesting attractions include the medieval weighhouse, Royal Palace on Dam Square, and New Church. Its most glamorous industry is the diamond trade. Not too far from Amsterdam are the flower centers of Aalsmeer, the picturesque fishing villages of Volendam and Marken, cheese markets at Edam and Gouda, and historic Haarlem, the main center of the bulb-growing industry. Enjoy the city’s sights from a glass-topped sightseeing boat which passes characteristic gabled houses and negotiates picturesque arched bridges. Facing Dam Square, the Royal Palace was built in 1648 and is still officially the royal residence, although the royal family resides in The Hague. The marbled Citizens Hall with inlaid maps of the world is worth seeing. One of Amsterdam’s most visited sites is historic Anne Frank House. Rijksmuseum, the city’s most prestigious museum, houses the largest collection of Dutch paintings in the world. Van Gogh Museum houses a striking collection.
