Welcome to the stunning Pulitzer hotel, located in Amsterdam between the Prinsengracht and Keizersgracht canals.  The Pulitzer began as twelve restored interconnected canal houses, and has grown to the modern day intricate maze of now twenty five canal houses, featuring 225 guest rooms and suites.  The latest renovation of this magnificent hotel was completed in 2016, which combines classic beauty with contemporary style fit for the modern day.  For context, this stunning 5 star hotel is located in the historical Nine Streets neighborhood, which was central to business deals and trade for Dutch aristocrats back in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.  Today, this area is central to many of the main attractions of Amsterdam, such as the Anne Frank Hois, Van Gogh Museum, and the many boutique restaurants and cafes that Amsterdam has to offer.Welcome to the stunning Pulitzer hotel, located in Amsterdam between the Prinsengracht and Keizersgracht canals.  The Pulitzer began as twelve restored interconnected canal houses, and has grown to the modern day intricate maze of now twenty five canal houses, featuring 225 guest rooms and suites.  The latest renovation of this magnificent hotel was completed in 2016, which combines classic beauty with contemporary style fit for the modern day.  For context, this stunning 5 star hotel is located in the historical Nine Streets neighborhood, which was central to business deals and trade for Dutch aristocrats back in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.  Today, this area is central to many of the main attractions of Amsterdam, such as the Anne Frank Hois, Van Gogh Museum, and the many boutique restaurants and cafes that Amsterdam has to offer.

 

Upon entrance, the lobby of the Pulitzer takes your breath away.  The lobby boasts colorful, classy upholstered furniture, high ceilings, and gorgeous artwork and portraits.  In addition, the staff is very friendly, and the concierge is available to help in planning events both inside and outside of the hotel.  If one is interested in hosting a meeting or event, the hotel features countless venues, depending on the type of event and size of the party.  Our favorite was the Garden Room, fit for 150 guests, which is flooded with natural light through the large traditional Dutch style windows to perfectly illuminate the collection of trees and garden pots. The Pulitzer serves as both a hotel for a couple’s retreat, as well as a stunning location for a wedding or business conference. This hotel has many attractions, most notably the Pulitzer bar and Jansz.  In short, the Pulitzer bar is a timeless classic, with views overlooking the canals.  Here, guests can enjoy cocktails inspired by the novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, where each cocktail is named after the many characters, such as the “Carraway Fizz” named after protagonist Nick Carraway.  Next, Jansz serves as both a breakfast and dinner restaurant for the hotel guests. For breakfast, Jansz offers both a great menu and a diverse spread of breakfast essentials, such as salmon, bread, assorted cheeses, fruits, and fine meats.  For dinner, Jansz offers a robust menu of items designed to please the entire family, such as the Roasted Duck, Reypenaer Cheese Burger, and our favorite, the Dover Sole Meuniere. During the daytime, the Pulitzer offers a roughly 75 minute canal tour on their signature boat, created in 1909.  This exact boat was ridden by Winston Churchill back in 1946! In addition to the daily tours, guests can reserve a private tour with “the Tourist” to enjoy champagne and a floating picnic. Throughout the tour, guests will enjoy both a comprehensive tour of Amsterdam, as well as the history behind this magnificent city. The rooms at the Pulitzer are the focal point of the hotel, as each room is different from the next. Most notably, the Pulitzer suite is extraordinary, which highlights Mr. Pulitzer’s ambition to unite the new and old in perfect harmony. This breathtaking suite is comprised of distinctive furniture, historical architecture detail, and the grand highlight, the free standing bathtub. The free standing bathtub completes the elegance of this room, and serves as the ultimate romantic spot to relax after a long day of tourism.  In addition, the suite features a beautiful hanging chandelier in the center of the room, a desk for reading and writing, a bar stand complete with an assortment of wine and spirit glasses, and maybe the most comfortable Super King sized bed we have ever slept on. Moreover, this suite boasts high ceilings, elegant artwork and molding, electronically controlled curtains which can be opened to enjoy the beautiful garden view, a most powerful overhead shower, and is finished off with vibrant accent furniture, which completes the room. To say this least, this is the most elegant suite a person could dream of, designed to spark to the romantic within you. To conclude, it is a certainty that the Pulitzer hotel should be at the absolute top of your list when planning a trip to Amsterdam. This hotel is truly unlike any other in Amsterdam, or in our opinion, any other in the world. Its unique design and structure provide for a stay that you will never forget.
