Kimpton Makes Its Debut in Europe

AMSTERDAM—Kimpton De Witt, set within three original Dutch Golden Age-era buildings in the Palace Quarter neighborhood, has opened here. It is the first Kimpton property in Europe.

The hotel has 274 guestrooms, including nine signature suites—many of which have private terraces overlooking the city. Design elements include Dutch-inspired design, a three-story suite aptly named Little House, which operates as a house within the hotel, a flower shop with fresh cut blooms, and an open-air garden. The on-site Wyers Bar & Restaurant will serve American cuisine and cocktails with a European twist, and Miss Louisa Coffee & Beignets is a walk-up counter for coffee and beignets.

“Amsterdam is in many ways a perfect fit for Kimpton’s first European hotel,” said Mike DeFrino, CEO of Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants. “The city is effortless in design, highly diverse, light hearted and known to be a hotbed of creativity, all of which are pillars of the Kimpton brand. We’ll be bringing Kimpton to Paris next and have big plans for other cities across the continent.”

Kimpton De Witt is the first Kimpton hotel to open in Europe with a second hotel scheduled to open in Paris in 2020. There are currently more than 60 Kimpton hotels and more than 70 restaurants across Europe and the Americas. This is IHG’s 20th hotel in The Netherlands.
