The new nhow Amsterdam RAI hotel is designed as a melting pot for contemporary art, design, dining and culture, mirroring Amsterdam’s similar standing as a cultural melting pot. The 4-star property is the largest in the Benelux market, with 650 guestrooms over 24 floors.

Design incorporates items from a multitude of cultures. Travelers spot decor touches from Mexico, Japan, India and other countries. The exterior of the building is designed as three overlapping triangles, pointing in different directions and symbolizing Amsterdam’s past, present and future. The property offers two on-site dining options, a restaurant and bar on the ground floor and a sky lounge and bar on the top floor with views of the city.

“At nhow, we believe a hotel should be an active part of the city, a crossroads for people, ideas, art, good food and cultural adventures. We want to welcome tourists, business travelers and locals,” said Hermann Spatt, general manager, nhow Amsterdam RAI. “The building’s interior design crystallizes the cultural melting pot this city has been for over 400 years. We encourage everyone to come and experience nhow for themselves.”

“2020 is off to a brilliant start. Only a matter of days into this New Year and we are already inaugurating our second nhow. The nhow London opened its doors on Jan. 2 only to be followed… by the largest newly built hotel in Benelux, the nhow Amsterdam RAI,” added Maarten Markus, managing director, Northern Europe, NH Hotel Group. “We are really raising the bar in terms of offering guests unforgettable experiences. In this instance, literally, with a building that stretches nearly 300 feet tall. We are very proud to be able to offer business and leisure travelers in Europe these two new extraordinary and mold-breaking hotels.”
