Worldhotels has added the iconic ss Rotterdam hotel, located in Rotterdam, Netherlands, to its portfolio.

Inaugurated in 1958 in Rotterdam with its maiden voyage taking place the following year, ss Rotterdam was the flagship of the Holland America Line fleet.

Granted a prime permanent berth at Katendrecht in the heart of the city 50 years later, the fully-restored liner welcomed its first guests as a hotel in February 2010.

The ship now features 254 modern hotel rooms, designed to reflect its 1950s origins. Rooms accommodate up to four people with working desks, flat-screen TVs, internet access and air conditioning. Each room features a distinctive shape and colour scheme.

Diners can choose between the lively, all-day restaurant Lido and the elegant, stylish Club Room, while the Ocean Bar and the Terrace provide vibrant, social meeting spots.

Fourteen different authentic banqueting rooms and 16 meeting rooms provide first-class facilities for events.

Worldhotels offers more than 500 of the worlds most unique independent hotels, and the ss Rotterdam is another fantastic first for us, said Roland Jegge, Worldhotels Executive Vice President for Asia Pacific. The ship holds an iconic position in the maritime tradition of the Netherlands, and in the last two years it has become an insiders tip for travellers visiting Rotterdam for business or pleasure. This new hotel perfectly complements our existing hotels in the city, The Manhattan Hotel Rotterdam and the Bilderberg Parkhotel Rotterdam.
