Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht - REVIEW - MASTER THREAD

Greetings FlyerTalkers!

We are very excited to announce that the Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht has officially opened its doors! The hotel marks the ninth hotel in the Andaz brand, and the very first Hyatt hotel in the Netherlands.

The 122 room hotel is set on the site of the city’s former Public Library on the Prinsengracht, which is part of the iconic ring of canals added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2010. The hotel is centrally located in the spirited Jordaan district, surrounded by art galleries, unique specialty shops, trendy fashion boutiques, and stylish restaurants.

Safe travels!

Dana M.

Keep adding locations

The wife and I love the Andaz brand. We are looking forward to Maui and any others in the pipeline.

What did you expect?

Hyatt on international soil tends to be more expensive anyway, brands like Park Hyatt or Andaz are actually increasing this premium even further and after all, it is (Dam)n Amsterdam and a truly upscale neighborhood.

Pricing is a little stupid even for Amsterdam... let's see what they actually offer, prices will likely come down a little during non-peak times when they see the actual bookings.

I agree....pretty much 300/night after the taxes with AP...in winter.

They'll need to bring the rates down, especially since the competition in AMS is increasing (finally). Hilton/Marriott and the lot used to be a bit overpriced, but have been getting cheaper and cheaper lately.

I'll see if I can get there in Feb 2013, which means we probably won't overlap!

I could live with E300 a night, it's a bargain compared to Paris!

I emailed Hyatt yesterday and got a timely response.

This is a category 5 hotel. They said 18k points for free night in a room, 22k points for club room and 27k points for suite (3 night stay minimum).

Thought everyone might like to know.
