This is a top pick for Europe-bound shopaholics: Thanks to its location in Amsterdam’s “nine streets” of galleries, antique and clothing shops, boutique hotel The Dylan has partnered with Dutch online shopping site 9streetsonline.com to make room service go way beyond food.
While unwinding in their hotel rooms, travelers can now shop the “nine streets” and see what's available from up-and-coming designers, jewelers, designers and artists by activating the Room Shopping button on the hotel room television screen. The complimentary Room Shopping Service menu includes a variety of shopping categories such as “Food for Thought” (highlighting local art pieces), “Tiny Appetizers” (with children’s clothes and toys) and “Side Order” (must-have accessories such as shoes and purses).
Items purchased via the hotel TV Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. will be delivered to the hotel room within an hour through a partnership with Same Hour Delivery by PostNL, the biggest Dutch postal service. All purchases made after 5:30 p.m. will be delivered after 9 a.m. the next day.
And for items that don't quite fit, guests can simply leave the pieces to be returned at the reception desk and The Dylan team will handle the rest.
To celebrate the debut, The Dylan is offering a special Room Shopping Package that includes:
- Overnight stay in a Luxury Room
- Dylan Buffet breakfast
- “9streets” cocktail in Bar Barbou
- Complimentary popcorn for two
- €25 (approximately $34) credit towards Room Shopping with minimum spend of €100 (approximately $137)
- Complimentary one-hour delivery of purchased items in the hotel room (weekdays)
The Room Shopping Package is available through August 31 and subject to availability. To book, email [email protected].
