Introducing bold design, playful luxury and the city’s first rooftop pool, W Amsterdam allows guests to connect and exchange.
W Hotels Worldwide, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, debuted in the Netherlands with the highly anticipated opening of W Amsterdam. You can now experience the distinctive energy of New York in Amsterdam.
Just steps away from the vibrant Dam Square and the Royal Palace, the hotel introduces the city’s first rooftop pool and electrifying culinary venues, such as THE DUCHESS and MR PORTER. Amsterdam has emerged as a world leader in design, music and fashion, all of which have long been passions of W Hotels and their guests.
“As one of Europe’s most popular destinations, we are excited to welcome guests and locals alike to an energetic space full of unexpected moments.”
Anthony Ingham, global brand leader at W Hotels Worldwide
Located in the epicentre of Amsterdam’s vibrant social scene, the 238 room hotel spans two iconic buildings, one of which used to house the former telephone exchange and the other which was previously home to KAS Bank. W Amsterdam was designed by Office WINHOV and Baranowitz Kronenberg Architects, who collaborated with local designers to refresh the historic buildings with contemporary features inspired by their storied histories.
The exchange building features 172 stylish guest rooms, while the 66 rooms in the bank will open early next year. The hotel will have a total of 21 suites, three WOW suites and two lavish Extreme Wow suites. W Amsterdam features SPG Keyless, the hospitality industry’s first keyless entry system enabling guests to use their smartphone or wearable device as a room key. Watch their promotional video below:
You arrive in style when checking in at the rooftop W Lounge, the W brand’s re-interpretation of the traditional hotel lobby, on the sixth floor of the exchange building. With four outdoor terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows, you can enjoy spectacular 360-degree views over canal houses and heritage sites, the Royal Palace and the lively historic centre. W Amsterdam will offer 414 square metres of ultra-modern meeting and event space, including a Great Room which can be divided into three smaller meeting rooms.
