Hotel of the week: Hotel de l’Europe, Amsterdam

Designers of the recent $85 million renovation added a little whimsy to the hotel's more traditional attractions.

This glamorous 1890s hotel offers a “quirky slant on Dutch luxury,” said Geraldine Fabrikant in The New York Times. A recent $85 million renovation assures “comfort and high style,” but some whimsy has also been added alongside such traditional touches as the doormen with top hats and the three-tiered chandeliers. Oversize reproductions of portraits from the nearby Rijksmuseum now hang in the lobby and the larger guest suites: They’re “a hip Dutch nod to kitsch.” A pianist and a singer perform in the lounge at tea. Catch a set after working out in the new gym, which looks out on the Amstel River. leurope.nl; rooms from $505
