As of April the guests at Hotel V Fizeaustraat can explore Amsterdam in style, renting a premium, technical raincoat during their stay. This is thanks to a unique collaboration between the rainwear brand, BYBROWN and Hotel V.
This forward thinking rental project, RENT THE RAIN, was launched at the beginning of April, giving guests protection in case of bad weather, and let's face it, the weather can be a little unpredictable when visiting Amsterdam!
RENT THE RAIN enables customers to pre-book a coat before their stay or alternatively book a coat on arrival. This collaboration allows you to be part of a new responsible approach in the sharing economy whilst remaining protected in style.
RAINWEAR TO RENT AT HOTEL V FIZEAUSTRAAT
SPIRIT AND CONNECT RAINCOATS
Upon rental the coat is personally delivered to the guest at the beginning of their stay, adding an element of fun and surprise to their Hotel V experience. You can then fully enjoy Amsterdam in style, whatever the weather. When checking out, you hand the raincoat back in at reception, paying for the coat rental together with your hotel bill and continue your journey carefree.
Hotel V & The Lobby is founded by true Amsterdammers - city lovers at heart - with a fierce passion for the authentic and inspiring characteristics of their city. ‘We work hard to make you love our city like we do. From the food we eat and the streets we roam through, to the people we meet and the places we sleep at. We want you to be your most authentic self while moving – preferably biking – around and making new memories as you go. We are aware the Dutch weather can make it feel like a challenge at times, but that shouldn’t stop you from taking on this exciting journey. That’s why we partnered up with BYBROWN and offer our guests the opportunity to rent a sustainable raincoat whenever those typical, rain clouds decide to knock on our door. You can be prepared for the weather in style, everywhere you go.’
‘Rental addresses the environmental issues of using virgin materials and reducing the amount of fabric that ends up in landfill each year, by intensifying the usage of one singular garment by distributing it to more than one end user. This drastically minimises the environmental output of CO2 and water consumption by avoiding volume output and ensuring a durable and efficient usage of resources. This rental system has the added benefit of replacing single-use plastic rain ponchos and short-life umbrellas that hotel guests tend to use when travelling abroad. For tourists who unexpectedly have to deal with rain, renting a raincoat is a practical and yet durable alternative.'
