Starwood Hotels & Resorts announced the opening of its second eco-incubator Element brand hotel in Europe following Element Frankfurt Airport Hotel which opened in 2014. The new Element hotel opens in the Netherlands.
The opening of Element Amsterdam is located in the vibrant Zuidas area of Amsterdam, one of the city’s main business districts. An adaptive re-use project, the hotel is located in a former office building at the Gelderlandplein shopping mall.
Element Amsterdam features 160 spacious studios and suites, all featuring a fully-equipped kitchenette, flexible living space, the signature Westin Heavenly® Bed and spa-inspired bathroom. The hotel’s two restaurants My Place and Carrots &Co. focus on sustainable ingredients and provide a range of healthy options throughout the day. Open 24/7, the grab-and-go gourmet food pantry allows guests to buy everything needed to make delicious meals in the comfort of their rooms. Guests can also fuel their day with the healthy Rise breakfast and wind down with the Relax evening wine reception – both complimentary.
As the first major hotel brand to mandate that all properties pursue sustainable certifications, Element is recognized as an industry leader in the eco-space and offers travellers a reimagined interpretation of the traditional hotel experience with natural light, modern design, healthy options and eco-minded sensibilities. Providing an atmosphere that fuels life in balance and on the move, this reimagined experience is perfect for the traveller who is visiting for a few days or a few weeks.
Element Amsterdam also boasts a 24/7 fitness centre, two meeting rooms and a business centre. Guests can stay on the move and explore Amsterdam with Element’s complimentary bikes, as well as catch up with loved ones or work using the complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. The hotel will also feature SPG Keyless - the industry-first keyless entry system - enabling guests to use their smartphone or Apple watch as a room key.
