Hotel New York in Rotterdam

Hotel New York in Rotterdam,Netherlands
Visited in June 2015

the former office building of the Holland America Line.
Built in 1901 by the architects J. Muller, Droogleever Fortuin and C.B. van der Tak.

At the turn of the 20th century, the pier teemed with European emigrants setting off for better fortunes in North America. Nearly a half-million passengers left for New York via the Holland-America Line, and its green-turreted Art Deco headquarters still stands at the tip of the pier. The ornate 1901 building is now the boutique 72-room Hotel New York, where maritime artifacts from its previous life are preserved throughout the lobby and in its ground-floor restaurant.
