Renowned for his fantastical interiors, Netherlands-born designer Marcel Wanders will do his hometown proud with the 122-room Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht hotel, opening this summer. Delft blues, nautical motifs, video installations, and custom furniture redefine a 1960’s library as both an ode to Holland’s 17th-century charms and a hub for today’s creative class. “I want people to bathe in the universe of Amsterdam,” Wanders says, “to soak up all its beauty and potential.” 587 Prinsengracht. $$$
