Phase one renovations completed at quirky Pulitzer Amsterdam hotel

by Kim Megson | 10 Mar 2016

Pulitzer Amsterdam, the 45-year old waterside hotel in the Dutch capital’s canal district, has announced that phase one of its extensive restoration project is complete.

80 redesigned guestrooms and suites and a restaurant and bar are now open once more to guests staying at the hotel, which is spread across 25 interlinked buildings over 400 years old.

The renovations, which were led by interior designer Jacu Strauss, showcase a design concept inspired by the history of the city’s famous canal, and expose original features alongside contemporary design elements and fun props – including a vintage telephone, old books and a bike repair set.

Four themed suites – dedicated to books, music, art and antiques – take their inspiration from the trade merchants, composers, antique collectors and aristocrats who may once have occupied the houses.

Speaking when work on the project began last year, the hotel’s general manager, Alexander van Gastel, said: “Our future lies in our past, we want to stay true to our roots and celebrate the history and heritage of the canal houses – the hotel’s maze of secrets and surprises are what makes Pulitzer Amsterdam unique.”

The hotel's new restaurant, Jansz, is a quiet, elegantly furnished neighbourhood restaurant run by executive chef Cassidy Hallman. Pulitzer’s Bar, has been designed as "a classic and chic hotel bar" with a rich and intimate atmosphere.

The second phase of the restoration has now begun on buildings located on the Prinsengracht side of the canal, as well as a new lobby and a Pulitzer Garden. The work will conclude in Q3 2016, when the hotel will celebrate a grand re-opening.

Once complete, the Pulitzer will feature 225 guest rooms.

The hotel – a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts’ LVX Collection – is located in a UNESCO World Heritage site; within walking distance of Amsterdam’s famous museum district.
