One late afternoon, I went to the famous Hotel New York in Rotterdam. The view from this pier is wonderful and a great opportunity to take some nice pictures.
A little background information:
Holland America was founded in 1873 as the Dutch-America Steamship Company, a shipping and passenger line. Because it was headquartered in Rotterdam and provided service to the Americas, it became known as Holland America Line (HAL).
In 1984, the building was sold, after which it stood empty for ten years. Later it was renovated and turned into a luxury hotel with a café-restaurant. It has 72 rooms and 7 function rooms, situated in one of the most attractive spots in Rotterdam.
If you are ever in Rotterdam you should definitely pay a visit and enjoy the food and view from this pier after you have arrived stylishly by water taxi, which this hotel offers as transport.
