Frits Schiller (1886 - 1971) was a renowned Amsterdam painter and, later, the manager of the hotel with his name on Rembrandtplein in Amsterdam. The building has Art Deco and Jugendstil-like elements in the architecture. Frits Schiller was a welcome man in Amsterdam, the city he loved. He attended the Rijksacademie with professor Dake and the artist Staller. His friends called him the best hotelier among painters and also the best painter among hoteliers. Artists came to the hotel and some were even regular guests such as Jan Sluyters, George Breitner, Piet van der Hem, and Leo Gestel. He made many portraits there, such as of Louis Davids, Cor van der Lugt Melsert and Gerard Sluyter. He also made many city views of Amsterdam and still lifes. A large number of works still hang in the hotel. Schiller was a typical exponent of his time with a realistic depiction but clearly influenced by Impressionism.
