IHG Opens First Kimpton Hotel Outside of Americas

InterContinental Hotels Group has opened the first Kimpton hotel in Europe and outside of the Americas.

The Kimpton De Witt, located in the heart of Amsterdam near Centraal Station, features 274 rooms and suites.

Within the property stands a three-storey ‘Little House’, which dates back to the 1600s and was once the childhood home of the Dutch playwright, P.C. Hooft. This ‘Little House’, with two king-sized rooms and a first floor living room, can be rented for groups looking for the luxury of a private abode.

Kimpton De Witt’s signature suite, Penthouse De Witt, is split over two storeys and its 30-square metre roof terrace offers views of the city and the iconic canal house rooftops.

 Guests have access to a fitness centre, Gaiam yoga mats in every room and a complimentary all-day tea station in the lobby. Guests can also pedal away and explore the city on complimentary VanMoof bikes, in-room toiletries are supplied by Amsterdam-based natural skin care brand, Marie-Stella-Maris, and a hosted social hour every evening gives guests the chance to socialise and enjoy the hotel.

Wyers Bar & Restaurant, run by Executive Chef Sam DeMarco aka SammyD, offers American staples with Dutch influences, whilst House Bar provides guests and locals with a luxurious resting post where bartenders craft creative cocktails  using unexpected ingredients as well as serve an extensive menu of local gins and genevers. Local passers-by can grab a hot cup of strong coffee, made with coffee beans roasted locally especially for the café and fresh sugar-dusted beignets, at Miss Louisa Coffee & Beignets. The walk-up window is open for early morning, afternoon and evening snacks.

Angela Brav, IHG’s CEO, Europe, said, “Europe was the original inspiration behind Bill Kimpton founding the brand and now we’re bringing the brand home again. Opening in Amsterdam, gives us the perfect opportunity to indulge in the playful, creative and innovative approach to luxury that the city inspires in Kimpton’s unique and special way. Amsterdam as a city is effortless in design, highly diverse and a hotbed of creativity, making it the perfect match for our first Kimpton hotel in Europe. We’ll be bringing Kimpton to Paris next and have big plans for other cities across the continent."

Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants was acquired by IHG in 2015. There are currently over 60 Kimpton hotels and more than 70 Kimpton restaurants, bars and lounges in 33 cities across Europe and the Americas. This is IHG’s 20th hotel in The Netherlands.
