Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam is amongst one of the hotels in Amsterdam. Embraced by two canals, steps from the Royal Palace, The Grand boldly reinvents rich history: a legendary jewel among Amsterdam hotels. It is home to the internationally acclaimed Restaurant Bridges with Cocktail Bar and Garden Terrace, hotel SoSPA, to magnificent banqueting facilities, including the Council Chamber where back in the city hall days Queen Beatrix got married. Loyal staff pride themselves on reinventing Dutch hospitality a la francaise. From a 15th-century convent, to royal lodgings in the 16th century, the dutch admiralty headquarters in the 17th century to cityhall of Amsterdam in the 19th and 20th century - The Grand, after meticulous renovation, now dresses dashingly in a sophisticated french style. Bold splashes of color set off creamy marble; contemporary lighting glimmers off graceful arches and stained glass; rosewood handrails sweep upstairs to spacious luxurious suites and rooms.
