The Manhattan Hotel Rotterdam
Travel Blogs from Rotterdam
... There are more just outside of Rotterdam but this was the only one highlighted on my map. My connection with Rotterdam was instant and there are a number of reasons why. The architecture: a lot of it features Victorian touches that are common in parts of London and all across England, including where I'm from. The cultures: all kinds are represented. Cafes playing reggae music sit next to Turkish-owned kebab shops and Chinese restaurants. All kinds of different languages can be heard ...
... 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 ...
... can go through the actual house where the Frank family hid from the Nazis during the war, the Rijksmuseum, where I was really excited to see the huge "Nightwatch" original by Rembrandt, the Reypenaer cheese tasting experience (delicious), the Heineken experience and a walking tour we did of the city. We are going back to Amsterdam in a few weeks to get the cast off my arm so I hope to see a few more things when we go back, in particular the Dutch Resistance museum, the ...
And now it's november and 76 days until we leave for Buenos Aires. Time for the final payment is drawing near, and more and more things are falling into place.
As soon as I do the final payment, I will update my travel insurance and travel cancellation insurance as well. Something I do not want to forget. Travel is insured up to a certain amount per person. With this trip, we are way way waaaay over ...
... was asked and took the first room. The other passenger couldn't be found anywhere. So Lizzie and I just waited to see what would happen. I didn't want to go to our booked cabin and mess it up in case we got lucky. And we did! The other couple had already checked into their room and unpacked and were too tired to move. So we got the new, upgraded cabin. Yay!
After cruising all night we awakened in Rotterdam. I did Tai Chi, loosely ...

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".
