Memories of a historic past mingle with modern decor here. This former city hall on the bank of a charming little canal was where Queen Beatrix married Claus von Amsberg in 1966.
It is now a five-star establishment after having undergone more than two years of renovations under Sybille de Margerie in order to inject contemporary freshness to the 177 rooms and suites gentle tones of beige, violet, and off-white abound. Mahogany, marble, and steel clothe the large rooms of the building, which is accessed via a cobblestoned courtyard.
Enjoy the indoor garden resonating with birdsong, the library, and the superb spa. According to the Sofitel Hotels & Resorts chain (AccorHotels group), this is one of their most beautiful hotels, for which it deserves the title 'Legend.' At Bridges restaurant, you will enjoy the harmony of French and Dutch culinary traditions.
