A distinctive landmark towering over the Dutch capital’s gabled houses, the new nhow Amsterdam RAI hotel sits at the center of the city’s Zuidas business district adjacent to the RAI convention center.
Designed by lauded Dutch architecture firm OMA, this 650-roomed property is now the largest hotel in the Benelux region. Standing at 91-meters high, the striking building is constructed of 3 stacked and shifted triangles facing in different directions, symbolizing the multicultural essence of Amsterdam.
The interiors are an homage to Amsterdam’s Golden Age as a global center of trade, and were designed in collaboration with Dutch firms NEXT Architects and MVSA Architects. Universal cultural references are represented throughout the hotel, from India’s mandalas to Japan’s cherry blossoms and Mexico’s skulls, the nhow Amsterdam showcases country’s personalities from all corners of the globe. The room’s designs are inspired by the cardinal direction that each room faces from South, East and North to South West, South East and North West.
As a result, the hotel is filled a fresh interpretation of dazzling colors and prints, luscious fabrics, traditional accents and contemporary furnishings in the guestrooms and communal spaces alike. The guestrooms are divided into 4 categories with 6 separate designs, and spread across 23 floors with floor-to-ceiling windows providing stunning views across the city.
