Festival season is upon us! Coachella starts tomorrow with exciting lineup of events including AMEX Platinum House for Centurion Black and Platinum cardholders.
Pretty soon, Tomorrowland – the Olympics of festivals – will start in July and I’m already jealous of anyone that is lucky enough to attend this year. For those that are coming from afar, I highly recommend making a EuroTrip out of it. With its chill vibes and famous Dutch canals, Amsterdam is a great destination to add as a precursor to this big event.
Without further ado, here’s a look at this posh hotel.
Per Andaz tradition, the check-in process is an open design where the staff comes to you to check-in. For our stay, we opt to use our AMEX Platinum cards to check-in at cash rate instead of points.
Personally, I’m a huge fan of this boutique concept. It’s been almost 2 years since this stay and I still remember how engaging & warm the service felt.
We spent 30-40 minutes on check-in alone getting to know each other and how the property worked for our stay.
We learned that almost every European loves Tomorrowland. Our check-in staff always dreamed of attending and was genuinely entranced by its invitation box.
The architecture above us was modern with a sprinkle of old-world charm.
Considering we paid over $1000 USD for our stay, our room was hilariously small.
With its weird decor though, I suddenly crave fish and chips for lunch…
The hotel is located right by the famous Prinsengracht canal though, so I’m a fan of their bedroom views.
In the early mornings, I recommend taking advantage of their complimentary bicycle rentals and roam around before the city (& tourists) wake up.
It’s a great way to explore the canals.
And see the famous “I Amsterdam” sign.
The hotel also provides an impressive breakfast spread, which is nice after a long morning of biking.
And lastly, remember to take advantage of their spas, which is complimentary for hotel guests. It features a DOUBLE rainfall shower, which I much appreciated.
Overall, this was a nice centrally located hotel. Though overpriced for what you get from a room size perspective, this artsy Hyatt successfully gives you everything you need at your fingertips for a luxe Amsterdam experience.
If you’re points rich, you can also redeem here for 25,000 Hyatt points / night. It can be a great starting point to begin your (expensive) EuroTrip journey.
