The Mainport Hotel
The Mainport Hotel opened in the summer of 2013, epitomizing the soul of this global and architectural laboratory of a city. This 4-star hotel located along the canals of the inner harbor houses rooms that reflect the wide world to which the Dutch explorers once set off for. Each floor of this glass building is dedicated to a continent: Africa, Asia, Oceania, Europe, North and South America…The room décor returns each time to the various cultures that are found in this city where more than 150 communities coexist and whose mayor was born in Morocco. The fact that the largest port in Europe adopts a Muslim mayor, born abroad but of a cosmopolitan city is not at all surprising here. The Mainport is thus the latest illustration of this Dutch “melting pot” that loves to combine cultures. Something to note is the rooftop pool and spacious sauna where they – not ones to fuss over rules – want us all to share in the joys of the steam baths together. After all, naked all men are equal!
