Mainport Hotel Rotterdam
June 11, 2013
Mainport offers 600m2 of sensationally styled meeting spaces with a maximum capacity of 400, and a breath-taking view of the Rotterdam skyline. The meeting rooms offer great views of the water and the harbour. Boats may be moored right in front of the hotel.
Wellness is a recurring theme at Mainport, a harbour-hugging city hotel with an envy-inducing location in central Rotterdam. Many of this sleek black building’s 215 rooms have facilities usually reserved for hotel spas, such as oversized hot tubs with views across the city, or private Finnish saunas. Regardless of which room guests choose, the informal eighth-floor Spa Heaven will be waiting after an intense day of meetings. Spa Heaven has a tempting Turkish steam room, rejuvenating hamam complex and the Life Fitness Gym.
Huge glass windows wrap around the waterfront building, allowing guests to see and feel the vibrancy of the inner harbour, with its famous cable-stayed bridge and easy water-taxi connections. The five-star interiors subtly nod to far-flung places, without forgoing the fact that Rotterdam is the hotel's 'main' port.
In the quayside Down Under restaurant, for example, chefs with a passion for sightseeing offer everything from Argentinean steaks to Japanese sashimi. Add butler service, 600m2 of flexible meeting space and a gold sustainability certification from Green Key, and this is a hotel worthy of its location in Europe's largest port.
Mainport is located in 'Leuvehaven' quarter, next to the historic Harbour Museum and close to the world famous Erasmus Bridge. The oldest inner harbour of Rotterdam is now known for its views of the Rotterdam skyline and its central location connecting the centre of Rotterdam with the south side of the river.
