Jacu Strauss redesigns 45-year old Pulitzer Amsterdam

The property now has 145 new rooms, and a brand new entrance on the Prinsengracht canal side.

Pulitzer Amsterdam completed the final phase of a restoration project, with 145 new rooms unveiled as well as a brand new entrance on the Prinsengracht canal side of the property. Part of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts LVX Collection, the 45-year old hotel now has 225 rooms spread across 25 400-year-old canal houses.

Jacu Strauss, a former senior designer with Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio, was creative director of the redesign, drawing inspiration from the houses’ many inhabitants, from merchants to Dutch aristocrats.

The hotel completed its first phase of renovation in February, launching new onsite restaurant Jansz and Pulitzer’s Bar. Now debuting is the transformed lobby, a garden café, and 145 new guestrooms. Nearly all guestrooms have distinct designs. The Pulitzer’s accommodations include four guestroom categories, three suite categories, and the Pulitzer’s suite. Four Collector’s suites are also available, complete with private street entrances and canal views.
