“Every family has their story, welcome to ours!”
We would like to take you to the year 1981. Across from the Central Station was nothing more than a deer-park. In 1987 and 1991 the “Weenatoren” and the “Delftse Poort” ascended. This was the start of the Weena square. In 1997 they started building the Millenium Tower. It is now 131 meters high and one of the highest buildings in Rotterdam. The Millenium Tower was built on the last building plot from 120 square meters which was available at the Weena. It is built in between the “Plaza Shopping Mall” and the “Doelen”. The Millenium Tower was ready in the year 2000 and this is when the hotel could finally open its doors. After 10 years we became an individual hotel, this is when the Manhattan Hotel was born and joined Worldhotels. From 2006 until now our forecourt was a construction site for the now beautifully redecorated Central Station.
The Manhattan Hotel was named after “Manhattan at the Maas”, as Rotterdam is also referred to. Also, the design of the Millenium Tower is similar to skyscrapers as the Empire State and the Chrysler Building in Manhattan, New York. We have 138 employees with 20 different nationalities. 40% of our employees have been part of our team for more than 5 years. The average age of our team members is 34.
We have the ambition to be recognized as one of world’s leading luxury hotels. We will set the example for a great and unique guest experience of exceptional quality, which instills well-being, and fulfills even the unexpressed wishes and needs of our guests.
In The Manhattan Hotel we always strive to work on the basis of our values in each service moment. Our values consist of our unique, excellent and traditional service, which is delivered to our guests in a personal and sincere manner.
