Welcome to Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam, a historical site. In quite a unique manner, Amsterdam's history is reflected in this building's past and present. The rich history is, as naturally, incorporated into the new architectural details in many ways. The students of the Design Academy of Eindhoven used legendary persons from the building's history as a source of inspiration: their creative contribution with historical influences is draped across the 177 rooms, including 52 suites. Since 1578 The Grand has welcomed celebrated authors, actors, ambassadors, and heads of state. Along with the Willem van Oranje and Willem de Vijfde Suites, the Maria de Medici Suite is a testament to The Grand's rich history. Its Dutch contemporary architecture, wall paintings, and 20th-century décor. Furthermore, the three Opera Suites and sixteen Suite Apartments blend timeless elegance with the latest comfort and offer tasteful furnishing and modern amenities. All suites overlook the garden terrace and have an individual interior in restful natural colors like beige, lilac, and off-white using natural materials such as mahogany, marble, and robust steel.
Additionally, the hotel has four Food and Beverage outlets. Bridges is located on one of Amsterdam's oldest canals and is the ultimate place to go to for an elaborate lunch or a delicious dinner. It is a place where every ‘Amsterdammer’ feels at home, with inviting service, hospitality, and conviviality. Bridges is a unique restaurant with a dynamic atmosphere where you can enjoy a relaxing lunch in the afternoon and delicious wine-food combinations and surprising cocktails in the evening. It is a place where 'the exceptional accessible' is. The Library 'Or' is situated in the beautiful lobby, located directly by the hotel entrance. Sybille de Margerie drew inspiration from the colors of typically Dutch elements, such as the dark-grey street stones known as 'klinkers' and the deep, rich colors of the Amsterdam flower market.
The Library 'Or' has a rich collection of books about local culture, architecture, and French savoir-faire. A traditional Dutch brown café, The Flying Dutchman serves an assortment of Dutch beers and snacks, alongside an extensive collection of whiskeys and spirits. Whether you read the newspapers over your daily cup of coffee, meet a friend for lunch or a quick bite, or imbibe a few beers after work, for many people, their favorite bar inevitably becomes a home away from home. Lastly, the Garden Terrace can be found in the beautiful and completely re-landscaped courtyard garden. It is one of Amsterdam's best-kept secrets. An oasis of peace and tranquility, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is the perfect location to savor Bridges' culinary delights or The Flying Dutchman, if the weather permits.
