Hotel Pulitzer joins Preferred Hotels & Resorts, to undergo renovation

Amsterdam’s Hotel Pulitzer, a historic hotel of 25 canal houses with over 400 years of heritage, announced that it joined the Preferred Hotels & Resorts LVX Collection. In addition, the 230-room property is to undergo a phased renovation from late April, bringing back a Dutch style to the hotel. Blending modern and traditional influences, the design concept is inspired by a contemporary twist on the gables of Amsterdam’s canal houses.

Located in the heart of the city, on the Prinsengracht and Keizersgracht, Hotel Pulitzer has a collection of 25 connecting Golden Age canal houses with intimate rooms, an inner garden, meeting and events space and a restaurant and bar.

The first phase of the renovation will commence from late April, with a complete refurbishment of the bar, restaurant and meeting rooms, as well as the renovation of 80 rooms in one wing (Keizersgracht side). In January 2016, the new look Hotel Pulitzer will be revealed. The second phase will then start, with the next wing (Prinsengracht side) of the hotel to be renovated until Autumn 2016.
