InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has opened the doors to the Kimpton De Witt. The unveiling of the hotel in Amsterdam, marks the first Kimpton in Europe and outside of the Americas. The hotel’s 274 rooms, which include nine signature suites in the original Golden Age buildings, are inspired by Dutch design, from a modern take on classic Dutch art in the bedrooms to the blue Delft-inspired tiles paving the bathroom floors.
The hotel has been transformed with Kimpton’s bold and playful design. Inspired by Dutch heritage with Kimpton's signature wit, its spirited edge is evident from the ‘living wall’ of vibrant florals and botanicals trailing the entrance. Guests have access to a fitness centre, Gaiam yoga mats in every room and a complimentary all-day tea station in the lobby. Guests can pedal away and explore the city on complimentary VanMoof bikes, in-room toiletries are supplied by Amsterdam-based natural skin care brand, Marie-Stella-Maris, and a hosted social hour every evening gives guests the chance to socialise. Next to the hotel, Wyers Bar & Restaurant, run by executive chef Sam DeMarco aka SammyD, offers American staples with Dutch influences, whilst House Bar provides guests and locals with a resting post where bartenders craft creative cocktails using unexpected ingredients as well as serve an extensive menu of local gins and genevers. “Europe was the original inspiration behind Bill Kimpton founding the brand and now we’re bringing the brand home again. Opening in Amsterdam, gives us the perfect opportunity to indulge in the playful, creative and innovative approach to luxury that the city inspires in Kimpton’s unique and special way,” comments Angela Brav, IHG’s CEO, Europe. Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants was acquired by IHG in 2015. IHG announced the further expansion of the brand across Europe with its second Kimpton hotel set to open in Paris in 2020. There are currently over 60 Kimpton hotels and more than 70 Kimpton restaurants, bars and lounges in 33 cities across Europe and the Americas. This is IHG’s 20th hotel in The Netherlands and is an exciting addition to the 675 IHG hotels across Europe.
