Bottom Line

Luxury Suites Amsterdam is an upscale 25-suite hotel set on the Oudeschans canal in a quiet spot that's still close to restaurants, sights, and public transit. The hotel offers the freedom of an apartment without losing the perks of hotel amenities -- there's a 24-hour lobby bar and a small gym, though there's no full-service restaurant  or a spa. Suites are spacious with elegant decor, fully equipped kitchenettes, seating areas, roomy bathrooms, and high-end amenities like 60-inch smart TVs with keyboards. Service here is personal and posh: guests get free welcome drinks, and plus in-room massages, taxi service, and babysitting can be arranged for a fee. The Dylan Amsterdam has a more central location and a Michelin-starred restaurant on-site, but lacks the spacious rooms of this property.

Oyster Hotel Review

Luxury Suites Amsterdam

Scene

Luxury boutique hotel with apartment-like suites and exceptional service

Luxury Suites Amsterdam is housed in a charming, five-story redbrick building set on the extra-wide Oudeschans canal. The modern hotel is still fresh from its 2015 opening, with a lobby that has high-gloss floors, a massive chandelier, and a sleek grand piano. It's flanked by a carpeted bar and a breakfast area, with velvet-tufted floor-to-ceiling wall panels that match dining chairs. Unfortunately, the clinical-looking dropped ceiling ruins what would otherwise be a posh space. Still, this boutique hotel offers character, personalized service, and spacious suites, attracting tourists and leisure travelers ranging form couples on romantic trips to families looking for accommodations with an at-home feel.

Features

Lobby bar, breakfast buffet, small gym, and personalized service -- but no restaurant

The open-concept lobby is flanked by a breakfast dining area and a small 24-hour bar, and there's also a cozy smoker's lounge separated from the rest of the lobby by a glass wall and door. Buffet and a la carte breakfast is offered, usually for an extra fee, and 24-hour room service is available from nearby restaurants, but there's no full-service restaurant on-site. Guests are also given a free welcome drink. 

The hotel also has a tiny but modern gym with a mirrored wall, a few pieces of cardio equipment, free weights, and medicine balls. There is no spa, though limited wellness facilities are fairly typical for smaller boutique properties in the area, even those that are high-end. In-room massages are offered for a fee.

Valet parking, taxi service, or airport pickups is handled by staff, and bikes can be rented on-site. For those traveling with children, cribs are available and babysitting can be arranged. Guests go out of their way to mention that the staff and concierge are personable, knowledgable, and attentive. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
