Kimpton’s First European Hotel Opens In Amsterdam

The Kimpton De Witt opened Monday in Amsterdam.


Kimpton Hotels made its European debut Monday when the Kimpton De Witt opened in Amsterdam’s Palace Quarter Neighborhood.

The 274-room hotel is housed within three original Dutch Golden Age-era buildings. It includes “Little House,” a three-story suite with two king-sized beds that was the former childhood home of the Dutch playwright. There is also a two-story penthouse with a roof terrace.

On-site dining options include Wyers Bar and Restaurant serving American fare and House Bar, an on-property bar that features an extensive list of local gins and genevers.

Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants was acquired in 2015 by InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG). The boutique hotel company still plans to open a property in Paris in 2020.
