Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam is unveiling The Mayor’s Residence, a private nine-bedroom palace with the services of the renowned five-star hotel. Opening its doors on 1 September 2020, the residence is steeped in history.
Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam overlooks the UNESCO protected Herengracht canal and is comprised of six 17th residential palaces owned by the city’s wealthiest individuals during The Dutch Golden Age. The Mayor’s Residence was built in 1665 for Hendrik Hooft, one of Amsterdam’s most influential mayors. Decorated by Hendrik’s wife Maria Hooft and then by the prominent De Wildts family in 1780, the palace retains many of its original Rococo features to this day and is an architectural masterpiece.
The Mayor’s Residence sits adjacent to the hotel with its own private entrance. Guests will be greeted on arrival by their personal Team including a Butler, Private Chef, Guerlain Spa Therapist, Concierge and Housekeeper who will take care of their every need.
Set across three floors, the palace sleeps 15 guests in nine bedrooms and can seat all guests for private meals in the intimate dining area. The signature suite, formerly the hotel’s Van Loon Suite, showcases sweeping city views, Neo-Renaissance interiors and original architectural features including a 17th century spiral staircase.
Located in the heart of Amsterdam on the iconic Gentleman’s Canal, The Mayor’s Residence at Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam combines timeless Dutch history with legendary True Waldorf Service. Guests can explore the area with VIP transport options, private museum tours, exclusive theatre tickets and many more private experiences all arranged via their personal concierge.
