Welcome to Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam, an historical site. In quite a unique manner, the history of Amsterdam is reflected in the past and present of this building. Guests at Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam are promised a sublime stay — and not simply because the building was formerly a 15th-century convent. Tucked in the city center along two of Amsterdam’s finest canals — Oudezijds Achterburgwal and Oudezijds Voorburgwal — this legendary hotel has been sleekly redesigned with 21st-century sensibilities. Each of the 177 spacious guestrooms possesses its own style, with exposed brick, bold damask and vibrant prints; suites offer Bose sound systems and butler service. Bridges restaurant serves the best seafood in Amsterdam, while the bi-level So Spa includes a Turkish hammam.

Rooms & Suites - The rich history is, as naturally, incorporated into the new architectural details in many ways. The students of the Design Academy of Eindhoven used legendary persons from the history of the building as a source of inspiration: their creative contribution with historical influences is draped across the 177 rooms including 52 suites.

The Pulitzer is a unique blend of up-market, traditional and modern Dutch craftsmanship hidden amongst the city’s iconic canals.

Lose yourself in the Pulitzer Amsterdam, a labyrinth stretching through 25 historic canal houses and between two of Amsterdam's most iconic canals. It’s easy to spend your Dutch days wandering the many passages, relaxing in the pleasant garden courtyard or perusing the walls adorned with quirky pieces from the hotel’s impressive modern art collection. Yet just beyond its doors lie the Anne Frank House, the Royal Palace and other city must-sees. The 225 residential-style rooms come in all shapes and sizes; book one with a canal view. Delightfully surprising dishes make Restaurant Jansz a foodie favorite.
