This new design hotel, part of Marriott’s Tribute Portfolio, is fashioned from a former newspaper press room in Rotterdam. The aesthetic has a heavy hipster edge: expect arched brass floor lamps and graffiti wall art in the loft-style rooms. The hotel is situated in the Kralingen neighbourhood often described as the ‘real Rotterdam’ – and is just a short walk away from the Markthal, a vast indoor market, and the Old Harbour, In keeping with the trend of hotels that double as co-working spaces, the restaurant and cocktail bar Didot34 serves food and drinks from breakfast to late, providing a social gathering space for travelers hoping to combine work with leisure.
