I will be wearing 2 shirts green & gold and a Dutch one over the top., it will be great! …
... still praying for the rain to stop. I'm sitting on the bus watching the rain, and reminding God of our previous conversation at breakfast two days ago. We got off the bus, and quickly headed for the gate. Since it took so long getting our ship secured we were now an hour late. That cut our excursion also an hour. Great, we're an hour late, and it's still raining. The tulips were wet, but really cool. We ran around as quickly as we could, because we were down to ...
... street. It truly feels like a city and country that welcomes everyone without discrimination. The quiet, subdued feel of it: I walked a thoroughly spontaneous route, mostly with only the sound of my footsteps for company. It was a peace and tranquility that I've not known for some time. I sat by a canal with the rusted remains of a bicycle visible beneath the water, took photos of cars and buildings and had to divert my attention to something photo-worthy so many times I'm surprised I ...
... rooms, and does throw out perception and balance to some.
From here, a walk around the Old Port, past the former tallest building in Europe and through the markets, stopping to eat ham and cheese sandwiches. Jan even bought us a little pair of painted Dutch clogs. We took a train to the Central Station and then Tram towards the gardens and Euromast Tower. The tower stands at 184metres, and offers great views of the city. We headed to the ...
... We then arrived in camp and had lunch since we were both hungry – breakfast seemed like ages ago. After lunch we had a cup of tea which we had skipped in the morning. We were both feeling rather sleepy so Anoop crawled upstairs and had a nap while I curled up for a doze in the back seat. Then we thought we’d better do some laundry since it was quite windy but sunny. Afterwards, we puttered away writing the blog and a few postcards enjoying the warmth in the ...

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.
-Conveniently located in the center of the city, right opposite to the central station.
-Staff eligible, polite and friendly.
-Quick check-in (& check out).
-Room spacious, contemporary, clean, soundproofed, perfectly air-conditioned, with coffee-tea making facilities and safe.
-Fairly large, ergonomic bathroom with separate tub-shower.
-Clean and well equipped fitness center.
-The hot spot of the stay in this hotel: the heavenly bed. Most other beds seem like toys after sleeping in this very bed. Mattress, pillows and sheets contribute altogether to a remarkably relaxing sleep, nap or simple lie-down.
A "must stay" for business travelers as well as vacationers.
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.
Fantastic, Service at it's very best
I have had the privelege of staying at this hotel on several ocassions.
The staff are unbelievably courteous, helpful and have made my (frequent) stays a pleasure. As a lone business traveller they are welcoming, engaging, fun and most importantly they exhibit the highest standards of professionalism, making this hotel a truly marvellous place example of the Starwood chain.
In the comfortable Restaurant, the staff attend to you attentively, and Peter, their maitre'd, is superb. The menu was changed just recently and is very good, virtually without exception (the pigeon is a bit of a mistaken foray, but it so often is, even if you're eating at Rules).
Rooms are large, airy and comfortable. Heavenly beds, baths and service. Simply put, I cannot praise this hotel or it's staff highly enough.
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.
Very good location
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".
