Fodor's Review

Beyond the necoclassical courtyard and carved marble pediments is a haven of style and luxury, a stunning symphony of color and chic furniture—appropriately deluxe surroundings for a guest list that includes rock stars and heads of state. The city's most deluxe hotel 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 (Queen Beatrix was married here in the 1960s). The acclaimed

Bridges restaurant serves delicious French dishes and fresh oysters beneath a mural by Dutch artist Karel Appel, and afternoon tea in the glorious inner garden is an Amsterdam tradition.
