Rotterdam is the second-largest city in the Netherlands and one of the largest ports in the world. Starting as a dam constructed in 1270 on the Rotte River, Rotterdam has grown into a major international commercial centre.
Mainport is located in the “Leuvehaven” next to the historic Harbor Museum and near the world famous Erasmus Bridge. The oldest inner harbor of Rotterdam is now known for its views over the skyline of Rotterdam and its central location connecting the center of Rotterdam with the south side of the river.
Wellness is a recurring theme at Mainport, a harbor-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, like 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, complete with its sultry Turkish steam room and rejuvenating hammam complex, where pores are unblocked and muscles slowly massaged on warm marble tables. The Life Fitness Gym is right beside.
Wide glass windows wrap around the waterfront building, shaped by MAS Architecture, allowing guests to see and feel the vibrancy of the inner harbor, with its famous cable-stayed bridge and easy water-taxi connections. Karin Geurts, the owner of Inntel Group, 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. In the quayside Down Under restaurant, for example, chefs with a passion for sightseeing offer everything from Argentinian steaks to Japanese sashimi. Add butler service, 600 sq m of flexible meeting space and a gold sustainability certification from Green Key, and you have a hotel worthy of its location in Europe’s largest port.
And for your events:
• 600 m2 of flexible meeting space (maximum 400 persons theatre style, 300 persons sit down dinner)
• 8 flexible function rooms (30 m2 to 550 m2) + 1 Board room (50 m2)
• The conference center offers 9 state-of-the-art meeting rooms and impeccable conference spaces equipped with lightning fast Wi-Fi, telecommunications, audio/visual and technology support.
• The spacious, 550 m2 Major Conference Room, overlooking the water, is a grand venue for all Rotterdam events – from conferences to celebrations.
Stay at Mainport, a passionate and personal reflection of Europe’s largest port city, to benefit from five-star service and unrivalled access to all that Rotterdam can offer.
