The Pulitzer is made up of 25 landmarked townhouses from the 17th- and 18th-century in the center of Amsterdam’s canal district, but the newly imagined interiors by Jacu Strauss are pure contemporary Dutch design. All of the 225 rooms are different—Strauss, who used to work with Tom Dixon, spent the night in every room to dream up a unique look for each—and the Collector's Suites are beautifully designed, but relatively small. The property is also home to an in-house flower shop, a spacious garden, a two-story gym, library, restaurant Jansz, Pulitzer’s Bar, and an al fresco café. One design highlight is the reception desk, which is in the shape of an old travel trunk but made with antique Dutch tiles. During your stay, make sure to take a canal tour on the hotel's stylish 1909 cruiser boat The Tourist—as Winston Churchill did in 1946.
