Amsterdam, Netherlands

Wooden shoes and windmills may be the icons of Dutch culture, but the Netherlands is more than its traditional hallmarks.  Admire extensive collections of Van Gogh and Rembrandt at their respective museums in Amsterdam, visit Anne Frank’s Secret Annex, and cycle across one of the capital city’s 1200 bridges.  Leave the bustle and meander through tulip-lined villages, visiting Renaissance gardens and famous cheese-producing towns along the way.

Amsterdam thrives on its canal culture, where museums, shops and cruises offer urbane diversions for all types of travelers. Shop until you drop at big label boutiques on Pieter Cornelisz Hooftstraat or meander through the funky shops in De 9 Straatjes, a favorite for fun cafes, vintage shops, and amazing eateries. If you want the true local experience, Amsterdam is a city best explored by bike. You will experience this thriving city in a way that is both fully immersive and exhilarating. That warm and cozy feeling will hit as you meander around Prinsengracht, watching beautiful houseboats bob, drinking cappuccinos in 350-year-old bars, and stumbling upon endless hidden wonders along the many canals. 

The Hotel

InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam is a 5-star luxury hotel located in a quiet but central section of Amsterdam. This year, the hotel celebrates its 150 jubilee, being the first Grand Hotel of the Netherlands, so many festivities are underway. This landmark is ideally situated, looking out over the Amstel River and within walking distance of the historical city center. An easy stroll from the Rijksmuseum, the Hermitage Amsterdam and other must-see attractions, this palatial grande dame is revered as one of the city’s finest stays, while Michelin-starred La Rive restaurant, which serves French-Mediterranean cuisine with Asian influences, maintains a top spot on Amsterdam’s “best-of” lists.

The hotel’s 79 rooms and suites are warm and welcoming, with Dutch period furnishings, delicate patterns, state-of-the-art facilities, and Delft pottery. The large marble bathrooms have a walk-in rain shower and separate bath. After exploring, relax in the health club’s Turkish bath or enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace and watch the river flow. The Amstel Lounge is an ideal meeting spot where you can sit beneath crystal chandeliers to enjoy fine, High Tea, barista coffee and fabulous river views. 

For the active traveler, bicycles are for rent from the concierge to explore the city. The spectacular Amstel Health & Fitness Club has a large, heated indoor pool that looks out over the river, as well as a lovely sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi.
