Expert Review

One of the city’s newer five-star hotels is an Art Nouveau landmark that commemorates the Netherlands’ rich seafaring past and was originally built as a functional headquarters for six shipping companies. Elaborate flourishes in stone and iron – all based on a nautical theme – decorate the outside of the building while inside, the romantic homage to grand sea voyages continues, with maritime-oriented stained glass windows, decorative artwork, and custom furnishings. The building’s original brass chandelier recalls its roots while the dark-wood paneling and luxuriously appointed guest rooms set a tone of sophistication and comfort. Even the location is a nod to the hotel’s past life as “The Shipping House;” it’s mere steps from Amsterdam’s harbor, making it both a convenient and stylish home away from home.
