Am­s­ter­dam is ro­man­tic any month of the year. It could be the tulips that re­main bloom­ing in the flower boxes on the win­dows in the old town dur­ing this time of the year, or the el­e­gant lit­tle wooden boats with well-dressed lo­cals sip­ping cham­pagne while serenely float­ing down the canals for those af­ter­noon cruises. The grand life here is cen­tered around the sig­na­ture canals, unique col­lec­tions of art, cut­ting-edge mu­se­ums, Nieuw Am­s­ter­dam cui­sine, and end­less amounts of water ev­ery­where. Our fa­vorite ho­tel for ro­mance is the Wal­dorf As­to­ria Am­s­ter­dam. Unique in that it en­com­passes six el­e­gantly re­stored 17th and 18th cen­tury Pa­tri­cian man­sions along Heren­gracht (Gen­tle­man's Canal), which once be­longed to wealthy mer­chants. Here, your own concierge greets you – quickly mak­ing it ob­vi­ous that no re­quest you make will go un­ful­filled dur­ing your stay here. An out­stand­ing Miche­lin two-star res­tau­rant, Lib­rije’s Zusje Am­s­ter­dam, is at your ser­vice for an ex­tra­or­di­nary dinner for two. Did I also men­tion the Guer­lain Spa’s Cou­ples Treat­ments? Fab­u­lous!
