Connected by old memories

Hotel New York as well

Two icons in Rotterdam

ss Rotterdam and Hotel New York reunited

Since the ss Rotterdam became part of WestCord Hotels, the two icons in Rotterdam are reunited again: the ss Rotterdam, former flagship of the Holland-America Line – and Hotel New York- the former headquarter of the HAL. Both hotels are within walking distance from each other and are part of the 100+ year long history of the Holland-America Line!

Hotel New York

Hotel New York is situated in the former head office of the Holland America Line. A beautiful mixture of the old and the new makes this a unique place. The building is an iconic feature of the Wilhelmina pier in contemporary Rotterdam, a spot full of adventure.


The hotel is pervaded by a sense of nostalgia, thanks to its high ceilings, authentic Holland America Line details and a gorgeous wrought-iron stairway. The service conforms to that expected of a 4-star hotel, but with a special touch: instead of modern key cards there are old-fashioned hotel key tags, and instead of a high-tech mini bar round-the-clock personal room service is provided.


Eating and drinking at Hotel New York is always a special experience. The ground floor features a large café-restaurant, where 400 guests can enjoy an extensive or simple a-la-carte meal in any price category from early in the morning until late at night. High ceilings, colourful lights, sturdy nautical elements and robust tubes and pillars provide a very special atmosphere to the restaurant, where there is always a pleasant buzz going on.

NY Basement

An atmospheric & characteristic ambience with a historical touch, but with the trusted and well known Hotel New York hospitality. Hotel New York recently opened a new restaurant in the basement of her nostalgic building on the Rotterdam Wilhelminapier: NY Basement.


The seven extraordinary meeting rooms are ideal for a party or inspiring business meeting. Each of these high-ceilinged rooms has its own atmosphere and dimensions, as well as a colourful and nostalgic look. Two of the meeting rooms are extra remarkable: boardrooms Reuchlin and Plate still exude the authentic Holland America Line atmosphere and are available for functions such as dinners and meetings.
