Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam unveils a palace

Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam has unveiled The Mayor’s Residence, a private nine-bedroom palace with the services of the renowned five-star hotel.

The residence, which opened its doors on September 1, is steeped in history.

Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam overlooks the Unesco protected Herengracht canal and comprises six 17th residential palaces owned by the city’s wealthiest individuals during The Dutch Golden Age. The Mayor’s Residence was 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 to this day and is an architectural masterpiece.

The Mayor’s Residence sits adjacent to the hotel with its own private entrance. Guests will be greeted on arrival by their personal team including a butler, private chef, Guerlain Spa therapist, concierge and housekeeper who will take care of their every need.

Set across three floors and spanning 944 sq m, the palace sleeps 15 guests in nine bedrooms and can seat all guests for private meals in the intimate dining area. The signature suite, formerly the hotel’s Van Loon Suite, showcases sweeping city views, Neo-Renaissance interiors and original architectural features including a 17th century spiral staircase.

With a €1,000 daily food and beverage credit and their own personal chef, guests have full flexibility to order any food and beverage they desire. Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam is also home to four restaurants and bars including the two-Michelin star restaurant Spectrum. Guests can enjoy special dishes prepared by Chef Sidney Schutte and his team in the privacy of the residence, with wine pairings selected by the resident sommelier.

Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam’s multi award-winning spa can be accessed directly from The Mayor’s Residence. Guests of the residence can book unlimited treatments throughout their stay and will have sole use of the spa to ensure their privacy, including its three treatment rooms, indoor pool, sauna, steam room and relaxation room.

Located in the heart of Amsterdam on the iconic Gentleman’s Canal, The Mayor’s Residence at Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam combines timeless Dutch history with legendary True Waldorf Service. Guests can explore the area with VIP transport options, private museum tours, exclusive theatre tickets and many more private experiences all arranged via their personal concierge.

Nightly rates for The Mayor’s Residence sleeping 15 start from €24,450, including daily breakfast, exclusive use of the spa, unlimited spa treatments and an additional €1,000 food and beverage daily credit.
