With the Spring season ahead of us, Pulitzer Amsterdam is ready to welcome you with the most blossoming flowers. Because who’s day hasn’t been brightened up by flowers…

Meijer Roses X Season Flowers

Nothing says “I love you” better than a beautiful rose so we’ve decided to join forces with Meijer Roses & Season Flowers to transform our Flowershop into a Valentine’s Pop-Up at the 13th and 14th of February.

Being a family business, Meijer Roses is a modern rose breeding company specialized in the production of large-flowered Avalanche roses. In harvesting roses, choosing the perfect moment to cut is most important. Meijer Roses managed to find the perfect balance between the durability of the flower and its bloom, resulting in the production of the dazzling Avalanche roses.

Styled by our florist Season Flowers, the shop will be filled with the most beautiful pastel-colored roses for you to enjoy or to buy for your loved one. There is a limited quantity of roses available, so be sure to pop in sooner rather than later!

Tulip Festival

For the fourth year in a row, Amsterdam will start the Spring celebrating the famous tulip ensuring it blooms all over Amsterdam. During this festival, more than 500,000 colorful and rare tulips can be admired at different locations all around the city, the inner gardens of Pulitzer Amsterdam being one of them. Nestled at the center of the hotel, our garden occupies a surprising green oasis where a colorful palette of 3000 beloved tulips will be revealed for you in order to relax and recharge of the hustle and bustle of the city.
