Having recently opened its doors on 1st September 2020, The Mayor’s Residence at The Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam is a stunning private nine-bedroom palace featuring all the services of the renowned five-star hotel.
Steeped in fascinating history, a single night here will set you back at the eye-wat ering sum of €24,450, although it’s worth every penny. Spread across three floors with its own private entrance, the 944m² palace sleeps up to 15 people in nine bedrooms and can seat them all for private meals in the intimate dining area.
The signature suite, formerly the hotel’s Van Loon Suite, showcases sweeping city views across Netherland’s capital, alongside Neo-Renaissance interiors and original architectural features including a 17th century spiral staircase.
Don’t expect to lift a finger during a visit either. Guests will be pampered with an entire team of staff, including a personal butler, housekeeper and private chef on hand to whip up fine dining creations. They’ll also enjoy exclusive use of the hotel’s multi award-winning Guerlain Spa and unlimited spa treatments – after all, there’s no such thing as too many massages.
Ideal for foodies, booking the palace includes the added perk of a €1,000 daily food and beverage credit, plus a personal chef. Make the most of full flexibility over food and beverage choices: lashings of truffled pasta, platters of tuna tartare, a bowl overflowing with caviar – the choice is yours.
Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam is also home to four restaurants and bars, including the impressive two-Michelin star restaurant Spectrum. Fine dining lovers can sink teeth into special dishes prepared by Chef Sidney Schutte and his team in the exclusive privacy of the residence, washed down with wine pairings carefully selected by the resident Sommelier.
One of the city’s most exceptional properties, Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam overlooks the UNESCO protected Herengracht canal and is comprised of six 17th residential palaces once owned by the city’s wealthiest individuals during The Dutch Golden Age.
The Mayor’s Residence was originally built in 1665 for Hendrik Hooft, one of Amsterdam’s most influential mayors. Decorated by Hendrik’s wife Maria Hooft and then by the prominent De Wildts family in 1780, the palace retains many of its original Rococo features: it’s somewhat of an architectural masterpiece with rooms designed to awe at.
With an enviable location in the heart of Amsterdam, sitting pretty on the iconic Gentleman’s Canal, The Mayor’s Residence at Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam combines timeless Dutch history with legendary service that the Waldorf brand is known across the globe for. Featuring endless pampering and palatial surrounds, book this exquisite stay for something truly opulent this autumn.
