... sunbathing while taking in the stunning views and trying out all the setting on Marlina's camera. After probably hours of chatting, sunbathing, and photographing, we decided we should probably head back in order to catch the last ferry at half 5 back over to mainland Rotterdam (kinderdijk is an island). When we reached the ferryport, another ferry came in. Unsure whether we could take it or not, I asked a fellow cyclist (in English) whether this would take us to where ...
... NYC, but only takes 75 minutes. It was very interesting and they had running commentary in several languages. It was amazing to see sooooo many containers stacked up and waiting to be shipped out. We saw drydocks, and lots of swans for some reason. They don't seem the least intimidated by all the activity around them. Rotterdam is not a typical Dutch city in that it was nearly completely destroyed during WW2 and everything is very modern. The architecture takes some ...
... wondering where the other 1258 passengers were. Obviously somewhere on board. The only time it was busy, was at breakfast in the Lido. But even that was not all that bad. (I have since found out we can eat breakfast in the main dining room as well.....note to self: gotta try that!).
OK. I had some trepidation about cruising on HAL. They are frequently described as floating nursing/retirement homes. We found that, yes, ...
... hate eating in restaurants alone, but I don’t mind it. You can do as you please and have nobody to answer to. You imagine people stare and wonder why you’re alone, but actually they don’t give a monkey’s who you are and what you’re doing and they forget all about you the moment their eye is distracted by something shiny, so who cares! But it would have been nice to explore Amsterdam with someone, as I seemed to be surrounded by couples and groups ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Manhattan Hotel Rotterdam
Stay in this hotel and find out for yourself why most reviewers have rated it with 5 out of 5.
Where are the windows
We stayed in the hotel last year, and I wasn't too impressed. Sure it's clean and all, but the hotel lacks character. Worst of all though was the fact that there was no way of opening the windows, which made the room feel like a prison.
There is nothing else to say!
All of the other reviews have said it all! I travel to Rotterdam to attend the film festival in January each year, and I've always stayed at the Westin. Great rooms, great staff, excellent breakfast (try to get one of the package deals that includes it). I've not eaten dinner there (seeing movies!), but I plan to in the future, based on previous comments. For the price, there is no other option.
I have had the privelege of staying at this hotel on several ocassions.
Very Good Hotel
I stayed there in November, and had requested an early check in that was no problem. For a 4-5 star hotel they still let me carry my bag upstairs, no need for a bellman.
The room was light and airy, and of good size. The bed was so comfortable I had to sit in a chair to keep from falling asleep at 6:00 pm.
The location was only about 200 yards from the train station about a 2 minute walk.
I would highly recommend this hotel to any one visiting Rotterdam.
The rate was 170 euro a night.
I spent a weekend in the westin hotel and i can honestly say it was the best hotel I have stayed in. The rooms were really comfortable and the heavenly beds?? Really are heavenly, best sleep I have had in a long time. The staff are very friendly, nothing is a problem, breakfast was first class. Location perfect, the westin is close to shops, bars, restaurants, casino. The Westin is 5***** all the way.
Get a Starwood card and get put on one of the higher floors. The room was immaculate with a King Bed and big bathroom. The toiletries, which are normally the least considered item were very pleasant to use and I confess to taking them home with me.
Stayed in an executive room on the 11th floor featuring Westin's (really) Heavenly Bed, views over the lively square in between Westin and Central Station, bath with separate shower, evening turndown, free bottles of still and sparkling water. Rotterdam itself, almost completely destroyed in WWII, is an architectural post-war nightmare, but the hotel's location opposite the railway station is great. You can reach Amsterdam in 1 hour (and Delft in 15 minutes, Den Haag in 20 minutes), by taking one of the trains departing every 10 to 15 minutes without paying the far too expensive rates of the Amsterdam hotels. Great breakfast buffet featuring Ruinart Champagne on weekdays. Restaurant service for dinner was a bit clumsy (e. g. serving white wine in red wine glasses), but food was delicious.
Fantastic Modern Hotel
Room was spacious, modern, and well decorated. Very comfortable bed.
Bathroom also fantastic, separate shower, marbled decor.
Staff were incredibly friendly.
Breakfast buffet was great. Highly recommended
Four Wonderful Stays at The Westin
Since February 2003 we have had extended stays at The Westin Hotel in Rotterdam, NL. The staff and accomodations were fabulous. We stayed in several room types, and found them all to be extremely roomy and comfortable. The bathrooms were luxurious, the beds incredible. Best of all was the staff, who accomodated our special needs (we were traveling for medical treatment) without any fuss.I would highly recommend The Westin as "the place to stay in Rotterdam".
