As soon as you hear the name ‘The Pulitzer Amsterdam’ what comes to the forefront of your brain? Obviously, the famed literary award that goes by the same name the ‘Pulitzer Prize’. The story goes that Businessman Peter Pulitzer, grandson of Joseph Pulitzer, the man whose bequest established the Pulitzer Prize, bought 12 run-down canal houses and converted them into the world-famous hotel that it is.
The interior designer Jacu Strauss spent a night in each of the 225 rooms just to contemplate what style would suit the monumental building. His reimagining took him to city markets, furniture stores, and art galleries. Just so he could get his hands on the perfect things that would breathe personality into the hotel.
The Pulitzer Amsterdam Boasts A Delightful Mix Of Colors.
Ultramarine, bone black, rich greens, and pinky plums, the Old Masters palette. Located at the exclusive Jordaan district on the edge of the Prisengracht canal, the Pulitzer Amsterdam offers its guest the local lifestyle on the proverbial platter. You can also witness the 17th-century houses, cobblestone streets, and the Dutch lifestyle.
Bedrooms feature oil paintings, grand views of the canal and garden, gold-framed mirrors, and stucco ceilings. Suites and standard rooms have a unique quirkiness to them that leaves the visitor perplexed and satisfied. Moreover, the whole hotel is a labyrinth of staircases and corridors of 25 houses sandwiched together! Also, the inner courtyard, now a beautiful garden serves as a refreshing oasis.
The Space Encapsulates What Amsterdam Is All About. Historical and Dynamic.
The hotels’ Restaurant Jansz beckons foodies from all over the world. It offers simple yet delicious dishes that are inspired by European cuisine. After all, Chef Cassidy Hallman has to give his distinct touch! The Pulitzer Bar offers the perfect atmosphere to enjoy a drink or two as well!
