Hotel New York in Rotterdam
Landmark of Rotterdam
Hotel New York is one of the best known sights in Rotterdam. The former headquarters of the Holland America Line (HAL) is currently a popular hotel and restaurant.
Holland America Line headquarters
Hotel New York was built between 1901 and 1917 and became the HAL headquarters, a shipping and passenger line between Rotterdam and New York. Hundreds of thousands of emigrants from all over Europe boarded one of the HAL ships on their way to a new life in America. Hotel New York was the last building they saw when they left Europe. In 1971 the last HAL ship departed from Rotterdam and the headquarters were closed. Nowadays the HAL has returned in Rotterdam and their European headquarters are located within the Montevideo skyscraper next to Hotel New York.
