This 23-room waterside hotel, opened in 2011, was renovated by Amsterdam-based Concrete architects, who seamlessly joined three handsome 17th-century canal houses. The interior public spaces pair Golden Age grandeur with some playful Dutch kitsch, including a hall lined with old farmhouse lanterns. The predominant note in the guest rooms is a sensual take on classic meets contemporary Dutch aesthetics, so even the smallest rooms are buoyed by the deep plum color of a purple tulip and all flaunt a layout that blends open-concept bathrooms, long work stations, velvet curtains, and smartly curated artwork, including Hendrik Kersten's Vermeer-like photographic portraits. While the airier front rooms offer views of a particularly ethereal stretch of the Keizersgracht canal, the back rooms face a garden, so you can bathe in your freestanding ceramic tub while gazing out on a garden folly. Even better, you can reserve the Garden House for private dinners, if you opt out of the hotel's lovely Great Room restaurant, which keeps things simple with an all-day brasserie menu. You can also bring the garden home with you: The hotel's bespoke Green & Spring toiletries are available for purchase.—Raphael Kadushin
