A very rare sight of a hotel doubling up as some sort of a memorial is the case of Hotel New York in Rotterdam. The hotel is popular and hosts a restaurant area that can seat easily 400 people. The hotel also is used for many conferences and the seven meeting halls is a testimony to that. The hotel is resplendent with high ceilings and carries structures linked to industry and maritime. The pillars are tubular and other elements represent the sea. The building is located on the banks of the Mass River. The hotel offers free high speed Internet access. The hotel also offers a bar and a lounge area. The hotel’s business center is very popular. The hotel retains six original board rooms as a memorial for emigrants. Other exhibits include images of the emigrants and their belongings, including suitcases.

Went for the seafood and also because of the very much en vogue location. Seafood is outstanding, no other word for it. Service is good, clean and quick. Will be back and back. Nice touch to put poetry on the walls.

We went to Hotel New York twice, once in December 2013, just to visit the restaurant the second time in January 2014 we also stayed in the hotel.
Check in was not unfriendly but the lady at the reception was uninterested, just gave out the key.
Busy apparently with other more interesting things on her mind.
The first time in December 2013 we had lunch in the restaurant and the food was excellent, the second time we had dinner there and chose the same and it was not what we expected it to be.
Perhaps a different Chef working lunch/dinner. I think it is unacceptable that a restaurant can have such a difference of quality in food within 1 Month.
We had booked 3 rooms and all rooms were different in style and excellent.

We had been at this location many times before, mostly in the restaurant(the tuna fish is great!). Almost every time a wonderful experience and therefore we decided to have our wedding party and dinner at Hotel New York. Both were great, an evening to cherish and remember with a smile. We booked the 'directors' room and this really was amazing. Thank you Hotel New York!

I go and visit friends in Rotterdam a couple of times a year - and each visit has to include a trip to Hotel New York.The location is great due to the views, the food is good (always the seafood platter) and the staff pleasant. I have always been there in good weather and sat outside, but the restaurant inside looks equally as characterful. Strongly recommend a trip here when in Rotterdam

The Hotel is in many ways a real period piece, but offers everything necessary for a good stay, although some of it may be a bit quirky.
Must of the building seems to be unchanged from the days when it was the Holland America Line offices. Our room (123) was a good size and very comfortable, but needed more light (or the ability to move the searchlights so that they shone downwards. Also the shower would benefit from a grab rail.
The hotel's restaurant has plenty to look at while the excellent food is served by the efficient and helpful staff.

Historical place amidst booming new history in the making. Food and drinks are good, but somehow the buzz of all clientele talking can be a bit overwhelming. Nice staff, nice restaurant. Haven't stayed in the hotel.
