Whilst on board we were interested to hear more about the new W Amsterdam hotel. It takes reference from the iconic Dam Square, with 238 stylish guest rooms in the Exchange building providing an elevated sense of space with high ceilings and wide windows.

The interiors are stunning from hand-woven bedspreads designed by Bertjan Pot that depict small stories of Dutch culture, to curtains are imprinted with classic Amsterdam canal houses and shower cabins inspired by traditional Dutch phone booths, each room will immerse guests in the city.
The 66 sophisticated rooms and suites in the Bank building will have an exclusive look and feel with black and gold bedspreads inspired by the original bank vaults, and pillows that represent the distinctive Amsterdam windowsills.
Guests will be able to enter their rooms using SPG Keyless, the hospitality industry’s first keyless entry system allowing guests to use their smartphone or Apple watch as a room key. Very modern!
We certainly enjoyed the Dutch cocktails and canapés on board the boat party and can’t wait to visit W Amsterdam soon.
