The hotel, which is currently operating as Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre, will undergo a transformation, launching as a 270-room luxury Kimpton property in 2017. In line with the hotel chain’s style, it will feature boldly designed, boutique rooms as well as a destination bar and restaurant, a gym and innovative meeting spaces.

Richard Solomons, chief executive of IHG said: "IHG’s ability to take Kimpton to new markets and geographies was a key part of the transaction and we’re delighted to announce this important milestone for the brand. It is testament to the global appeal of the Kimpton brand and to the strength of IHG’s global scale and relationships with owners across the world."
