Hotel New York
Hotel New York is located in the former headquarters of the Holland America Line, at the tip of the Kop van Zuid district of Rotterdam. Ships sailed from this location at the Wilhelmina Pier in Rotterdam to New York for a century. Tens of thousands of adventurous passengers departed from what is now Hotel New York, in search of a better life in “the promised land”, America. The shipping industry changed however, and the last boat to carry passengers sailed from Rotterdam in 1971. The Holland America Line moved, and its headquarters remained vacant until it was renamed Hotel New York in 1993.
