Amsterdam, 1 August 2019 – Floor17’s Winter Terrace has become a phenomenon in Amsterdam. Every year the hotel skybar surprises the city with a sky high activity. This year, it is reinventing a traditional Dutch game. Erik-Jan Bausch, General Manager of the Leonardo Hotel Amsterdam Rembrandtpark, is honoured to announce the Winter 2019/2020 activity. Erik-Jan: “Floor17 is known for its ability to stun with sky high activities to celebrate summer and winter. After curling, ice skating and Rooftop Movie Nights, we are going the extra mile this year to celebrate our name change. Visitors can play XXL Shuffleboard at a height of 85 meters and even participate in the Open Championship Rooftop Shuffleboard”.

Today also marks the first day the hotel overlooking Rembrandtpark, formerly known as Ramada Apollo Amsterdam Centre, carries the new name Leonardo Hotel Amsterdam Rembrandtpark. On this festive day guests get an interactive introduction to the new brand.

Prior to the start of the shuffleboard season, Floor17 invites all creatives to submit a design for the shuffleboards. Of all submissions, 5 artists will be chosen to translate their design to one of the XXL shuffleboards. These winners will see their design showcased at Floor17 all winter, and besides the fame and a trophy, will win a fully catered night of shuffleboard with 10 friends, including dinner and an overnight stay in the hotel.


Submission of your design is possible until September 15th. For more information, see



From November to February everyone is welcome at Floor17 to participate in the Open Championship Rooftop Shuffleboard. The goal is to complete the XXL Shuffleboard course at a height of 85 meters with stunning views of Amsterdam. Who will be the first Rooftop Shuffleboard Champion? The official opening of the Winter Terrace Shuffleboard will take place on November 14th.

The hotel with 446 rooms overlooking Rembrandtpark has built a strong position regionally over the past 7 years, both in the business and the leisure market. In 2012 the hotel added Restaurant & Rooftop Terrace Floor17 as one of the first rooftop bars in Amsterdam. It has since blossomed into an icon in the city with its breath-taking views at a height of 85 meters. One year ago Apollo Hotels became part of Fattal Hotel Group, one of the fastest developing hotel chains in Europe. In Europe Fattal Hotel Group is represented by Leonardo Hotels.
