The 211-room Hyatt Regency Amsterdam, the first Hyatt Regency hotel in the Netherlands, has opened in the city's center, 10 minutes from Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Center and 20 minutes from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
 
"The opening of Hyatt Regency Amsterdam marks a significant a milestone for the Hyatt Regency brand, as it continues to expand its footprint throughout Europe," said Peter Fulton, Hyatt's group president for Europe, Africa and the Middle East. "The hotel is in an ideal location for both business and leisure travelers visiting Amsterdam, and nicely complements the Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht and Hyatt Place Amsterdam Airport."
 
Bringing nearby greenery inside, guest rooms have been decorated with blooming floral and botanical artwork. They are equipped with flexible furnishings, a generous workspace, large windows and bathrooms with walk-in rain showers.
 
"At Hyatt Regency Amsterdam, we set the stage for dynamic interactions. From a quick coffee meeting to shared culinary experiences, our guests can come together to socialize, collaborate or celebrate," said Toni Hinterstoisser, general manager for both the Hyatt Regency Amsterdam and the Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht. "We are confident that the hotel's spacious accommodations, premier meeting facilities and superior service will provide an authentic experience and one-stop convenience to business and leisure travelers."
 
The property's 5,565 square feet of meeting space includes a 2,055-square-foot ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Singelgracht canal. The hotel also offers three event rooms that can be connected. 
 
An on-site restaurant and bar, Mama Makan, features a menu that fuses traditional Dutch café fare with Indonesian specialties. There also is a 24-hour café-style market with a wide selection of beverages and bakery items. Guests can exercise and refresh in the 24-hour fitness center and sauna or enjoy several nearby jogging trails.
