A long-established grande dame hotel parked on the Amstel River, 111-room L'Europe has undergone a zealous renovation plan that has paid off. First up, and launched in 2010, was an entirely new Dutch Masters Wing of 23 suites so large they include a living room, dining room, and a bedroom anchored by a signature, epic-size reproduction of a Rijskmuseum masterwork, so you can fall asleep guarded by Rembrandt's night watchmen or a Vermeer dairymaid. The refurbishment of the hotel's original Rondeel Building was fully unveiled in late 2011. Its 88 refreshed rooms and suites feature heated floors and technological updates, and the terrace of its new French-flavored Hoofdstad Brasserie has helped relaunch the landmark as a stylish local hangout, along with the more formal Bord'Eau restaurant. Slated to open in 2012 is an expanded spa, which will augment the indoor swimming pool capped by a glass dome, overlooking the Amstel.—Raphael Kadushin

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
"Well located on the Amstel River and central to everything," this 1896 property is "a grand old hotel with updated amenities." Opened in 2010, the new Dutch Masters Wing has a private entrance and suites mixing vintage and modern furnishings. Rooms in the original building, currently undergoing renovation, will include classic designs in red, ivory, gray and blue. La Terrasse updates Parisian café standards.
