“Together with Bari Gruppe, we introduced the Element brand into Europe in 2014 with Element Frankfurt Airport Hotel, shaking up the traditional extended stay experience for healthy active global travellers. We are thrilled to expand our collaboration with the debut of our second Element Hotel,” Michael Wale, President, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa & Middle East. “Element Amsterdam offers a fresh new option for travellers who want a bright, energizing environment, great design and everything they need for smart, sustainable living.”

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.
