Rosewood confirms maiden Dutch address

Amsterdam's Palace of Justice to convert to five-star hotel

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts will set up shop in Amsterdam in 2023, marking the entry of the ultra-luxury hospitality group to the Netherlands.

Rosewood Amsterdam will be the 11th property in Rosewood’s European stable. It will be housed in the former Palace of Justice, a building of great architectural, historical and social significance that overlooks the Prinsengracht (the Prince’s Canal), one of the city’s most beautiful waterways, in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Amsterdam Canal District.

The Palace of Justice was Amsterdam’s main courthouse for over 175 years and one of the finest examples of Dutch architect Jan de Greef’s classic, multicultural style, influenced by his travels to Paris and Rome.

Rosewood Amsterdam will offer 134 guestrooms and suites, with many boasting views across the two adjoining canals, quiet internal courtyards and townhouse rooftops. Amenities will include three restaurants and bars; Sense, A Rosewood Spa; a state-of-the-art wellness and fitness centre; and an indoor swimming pool.

The lobby lounge will feature a library adorned with legal books doubling as art pieces, photographs and artefacts, as well as comfortable and stylish seating, to create an enticing enclave that will invite visitors to linger and laze.

“Through design, décor and service, Rosewood’s properties worldwide mirror their surroundings and the souls of the destinations, and Rosewood Amsterdam will be no different,” said Sonia Cheng, Chief Executive Officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “With a unique character and culture, Amsterdam is a fitting locale for which to bring Rosewood’s guiding A Sense of Place philosophy.”

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts currently has three properties in Europe – Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel, Rosewood London and Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco. Additional European locations with Rosewood developments in the pipeline include Edinburgh, London, Madrid, Munich, Porto Cervo, Vienna and Venice.
