Tulip Time in Amsterdam: Canal Cruises and the Best of Spring at InterContinental Amstel

April 10, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

InterContinental AmstelGet thee to Amsterdam. Now is the best time of year to jump across the pond and head to The Netherlands, as the low country is covered in swaths of colorful tulips, blooming recklessly across the land. And plumetting airfares to Europe makes things easier for a last-minute jaunt to see the tulip fields and canals of Amsterdam. Book a stay at the InterContinental Amstel-- the radiant riverfront palace smack dab in the middle of it all on the banks of the Amstel River-- and you can enjoy tours of the canals, catered with champagne and canapés, on a private salon boat. This is just one of the activities that can be arranged by the talented concierge team (members of the Clefs d'Or association) at this regal hotel. This prestigious property has enjoyed a reputation as one of the finest in The Netherlands since it opened in 1867. And DailyCandy just wrote it up, recommending "one of the oldest and swankest hotels" for its "incredible riverbank views and a Turkish bath and spa."
