New look for the Pulitzer

One of Amsterdam’s best-known hotels, the Pulitzer, is introducing a new face on 1 February following an extensive restoration showcasing the building’s architectural heritage.

The new look by creative director Jacu Strauss is designed to blend historical and modern Dutch craftsmanship through the hotel’s intricate maze of 25 interlinked canal houses in the heart of the city’s historic Unesco World Heritage centre.

Strauss said: “There is an understated sophistication about Amsterdam and the Pulitzer is the ideal place to start exploring. Each canal house has its own story and I am proud to be instrumental in bringing them to life.”

February’s unveiling will feature the Pulitzer’s bar, a new restaurant called Jansz, meeting and event spaces and 80 guestrooms on the Keizersgracht canal side of the property. Rooms have original beams and fireplaces, set off by vintage furniture and modern examples of Dutch design including headboards reflecting the gables of each canal house. Each also has individual climate control, free wifi and LCD flat panel television.

A second-phase restoration will begin in February and culminate next autumn when a second wing will open on the Prinsengracht canal side.

Once complete, the hotel will feature 225 guestrooms and suites with a lead-in rate of £235. www.pulitzeramsterdam.com
