Dutch Hotel Awards 2023

This year, the hotel was one of the finalist of the Dutch Hotel Award. We are delighted to present in this article our exciting journey in this prestigious competition. 


An exciting journey

This year, the hotel was nominated for the Dutch Hotel Award, under the theme “Energize” and we made all the way to the finals! It was a wonderful way to show exactly what we have done to re-energise after the pandemic. We showed how our team work together and bring ideas to life for our guests, our planet and for the community.

It’s been such an incredible journey and we are really proud of the team at the hotel for getting us that far in the competition but even more proud of all the work we accomplish every day. See below the highlights of our presentation.


Ideal location for an energizing experience:

Located in the vibrant Zuidas neighborhood, our hotel is perfectly situated. This up-and-coming neighborhood offers a multitude of entertainment options, restaurants and cafes, as well as a lively market every Thursday. By working with our neighbors, we help to make the neighborhood even more enjoyable. In addition, we have established special partnerships, such as Doctor Feelgood’s massage services across the street from the hotel, events with media company Hello Zuidas, and an exclusive benefit for our guests with an extra dish offered at the nearby Michelin restaurant, Bolenius. Our “Signature dining” app also allows local residents to enjoy many exclusive benefits.

Manhattan Lounge Bar - Musical events to energize your evening :

Our bar, located on the George Gershwinlaan, is inspired by the musical legacy of George Gershwin, the famous New York jazz musician. We regularly host jazz nights with live music, lively Latin nights and DJ sets. In addition, our recent membership in the National Podium Plan allows us to support Dutch music culture by making live music accessible to all.
