I always love to see how the architects can take the character of a historical site and modernize it with current features our 21st century lives require.  The Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam is comprised of six 17th and 18th century double-front canal palaces with a unique grand staircase built by the architect of Louis XIV, Daniel Marot. 

They have created 93 spacious rooms and suites with views of the canal or lovely courtyard garden.  The rooms are modernized by incorporating large bathrooms, 42-inch flat screen TVs, inspirational views and a must have these days, complimentary WiFi. 

Two restaurants and a bar are available on the property serving local specialties and international cuisine with the finest regional produce from local farmers.  The bar serves a wide choice of the finest wine and spirit selections, including locally brewed liqueurs and Librije signature cocktails as well as authentic New York Waldorf Astoria classics. Enjoy a selection of modern and traditional finger-food, creative bar snacks and Dutch specialties, prepared with an innovative twist.

Guests also have use of the fitness center and spa. The courtyard garden, the largest in the area, is a lovely escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. 

The Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam also boasts seven meeting and event rooms including a large ballroom, which hosts up to 160 people.  A nod to the age of the building was kept in the Maurer Room, which boasts original Rococo style decorations and 18th century wall paintings. 

The hotel is available for booking now on their website.  The grand opening is set for March 2014.

I think the architects of the Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam have taken the best of the old and the new and created a luxurious respite for the modern traveller.  My only regret is this property wasn’t available on my last business trip to Amsterdam.
