Fodor's Review

Beyond the Neoclassical courtyard and carved marble pediments is a haven of style and luxury, a stunning symphony of color and chic furniture with such luxurious amenities as personal butler service and a gorgeous spa with an indoor pool. The Sofitel's surroundings are appropriately deluxe for a guest list that includes rock stars and heads of state. One of the city's most exclusive hotels was built as a convent in the 14th century, went on to house the offices of the Amsterdam Admiralty, and was Amsterdam's city hall until 1988 (Princess Beatrix, the former queen, was married here in the 1960s). The acclaimed Bridges restaurant serves delicious seafood dishes beneath a mural by Dutch artist Karel Appel, and afternoon tea in the glorious inner garden is an Amsterdam tradition.
