Mainport Hotel sets course for Rotterdam  |  by Design Hotels  |   With an envy-inducing location on the inner harbor, Rotterdam is about to get a new landmark: Mainport, Design Hotels™’ first member hotel in Europe’s largest port city. Wide glass windows wrap around the 215-room waterfront building shaped by MAS Architectuur allowing guests to see and feel the vibrancy of the harbor and see the famous cable-stayed Erasmus Bridge. Owner Karin Geurts enlisted the help of designer Feran Thomassen to create five-star interiors that make subtle nods to far-flung places, without forgetting that Rotterdam is the hotel’s ‘main’ port.


Wellness will be a recurring theme at Mainport and many of the rooms have facilities usually reserved for hotel spas, like oversized hot tubs with views across the city, or private Finnish saunas. And if that wasn’t enough, Spa Heaven situated on the eighth floor will invite guests to experience the sultry Turkish steam room and rejuvenating hamam complex. Guests can opt to arrive by water-taxi at Mainport’s private dock, where its quayside restaurant Down Under fuses flavors from around the world. Stay tuned for more details! Opening May 2013. / CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
