Hotel de l'Europe
Nieuwe Doelenstraat 2-14, Amsterdam, North Holland, 1012CP, Netherlands
Movie buffs may remember this gracious landmark, overlooking the Amstel River and the Muntplein, as the setting of Hitchcock's Foreign Correspondent; all guests will relish the reproductions of Dutch masters, handsome carpets, and all sorts of other luxuries. The chandeliered lobby is aglow with a gold-trimmed ceiling, the perfect setting for high tea (served in full glory here); the restaurant is famed for some of the city's finest French food; and Freddy's Bar, named after Freddy Heineken, of the beer dynasty that owns the hotel, serves award-winning cocktails. The most luxurious accommodations are in the Dutch Masters wing, comprising 23 suites, in an adjoining building.
