Quite often as I exit the Rotterdam Central station, I see the Manhattan Hotel right in front of me and I can’t help wonder how it is like to enjoy a night there. There is something about the grandeur of the building, the stylish people in the lounge, and the glass entrance.
For my girlfriend’s 25th birthday who shares the love of the better things in life every now and then; I decided to gift her a night at the Presidential Suite of the Manhattan Hotel. An excellent and recommendable investment to all couples out there.
We were treated with smiles upon entering the hotel and all was arranged quickly. We took the elevator up to the 11th floor and walked through the purple hallway to room 1112. One of the best moments is when you enter the room and are overwhelmed by the size of it all. So big you don’t even have to get down to the gym for your routine joggings. It took us time to comprehend where we were. It’s all in the details, the cookies, kiwis, chocolates and much more waiting for you, only to be surprised by room service with a special welcoming gift. The “illy” coffee machine is brilliant, makes you feel like a barista in Milan. Good jazz cd’s with 3 different sound systems fill the room with even more ambiance. Half of the suite is windows providing direct sunlight and a great horizon seeing as far as the city Delft.
I have not sat on anything that’s not comfortable from blue couches to leather office chairs. In the shower, we particularly liked the Zenology shower products that have a great smell. The telephone next to the toilet was funny.
The best thing is the bed, period. The matrass is so comfortable, it makes you look forward coming back home from your night out.
Breakfast was the icing on the cake, a buffet of English & French breakfast in addition to fruits, cereals and juices. A piece of smoked salmon on a toast with fruits is definitely a good way to start your day. Staff “Marije” was alert to our needs, refilling our cups with thee or coffee and bringing new cutlery.
All in all a very positive stay for the both of us, one that will be cherished forever.
