Connecting during Covid with Emmy Stoel, General Manger at Hotel Sofitel Legend The Grand, Amsterdam.

Emmy Stoel joins us this week for our vlog series #makingconnecting during Covid. Emmy is the General Manager at Hotel Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam a five-star luxury hotel.

Covid-19 has been particularly challenging for the hospitality sector, but the team at the Sofitel Legend The Grand have risen to the challenge. Creative thinking, team spirit, support for colleagues and resilience have come to the forefront during this time, resulting in many new ideas including “The Grand Beach”. Inspired by the sunny French Riviera, the courtyard was transformed into a real sandy beach! It is no surprise that Emmy is so proud of her team and the hotel Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam.

Located between two gentle canals in the heart of the city, Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam boasts a rich history; from a 15th-century convent to royal lodgings to Dutch Admiralty headquarters to the City Hall of Amsterdam.

For a number of years the Sofitel Legend The Grand has hosted the Ireland Netherlands Business Association St. Patricks Day celebrations, unfortunately during 2020 this was not to be.  We are looking forward to meeting soon again in person and know that the welcome will be big on Thursday March 18, 2021
